Children's letters from a medical journal on hermaphrodism and sex reassignment. CD: Dear Dr. I do not want to be a boy. I want to be a girl Just my sisters.

I Am a Bird Now's majesty didn't come easily: Antony's self-titled debut was released five years ago on David Tibet's Durtro label, but only now has he found the perfect mix between style and substance. More stripped down than earlier offerings- most of the focus is on piano and voice, although violin, viola, cello, sax, and flute are also heard- there's no missing Antony's thoughtful words.

Album · 2005 · 10 Songs. That opening flutter of Anonhi’s (formerly known as Antony Hegarty) extraordinary vibrato was all it took to seduce listeners-and the 2005 Mercury Prize judges. What follows is a record of baby bird fragile beauty, with Hope There’s Someone the totemic standout but sumptuous pain at every turn. For Today I Am a Boy is soulful and powerful, Boy George majestic on heart-stopping duet You Are my Sister, and the cabaret pianos and brass of Fistful of Love stirringly defiant. I Am a Bird Now Antony & The Johnsons.

Of course, when the album begins again, so does the reality of perhaps having nobody to hold an aching dying head. But then, so does Anohni’s riveting trip towards her airborne epiphany.

From the opening track of I Am A Bird Now, it's obvious that it is a much more quiet and intimate record than the band's self titled album. I Am A Bird Now is essentially an album of quiet, piano based ballads that feature Antony's voice in a very prominent way. Featuring a number a guests, most of them being friends of Antony, the record brings together a "who's who" of Alternative music
