Patrick Watson and Cinematic OrchestraPreternaturally talented Montrealer Patrick Watson guest vocals on a number of tracks on the latest release from The Cinematic Orchestra, Ma Fleur.

Ma Fleur is a moving, thoroughly gorgeous, and, well, cinematic experience.

And Watson's pipes -- being as they are, directly from heaven -- lend themselves very nicely to the project.

Watson has oft been compared to Jeff Buckley, but he sounds somehow more vulnerable, more tremulous -- I found myself thinking of Antony and the Johnsons, as well as Buckley, the first time I heard him sing.

Here he is, on the wonderful opening track of Ma Fleur:
