AllMusic Review by

As the principle songwriter for long-running and deeply prolific indie band the Magnetic Fields, Stephin Merritt has amassed a wealth of sweetly sad love songs, often criss-crossing various genres and styles in the course of a single album. Documentary film Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt & The Magnetic Fields was filmed over a ten-year period, and captures candid looks at the songwriting, recording, and performing process that Merritt and longtime friend, bandmate and manager Claudia Gonson, have established over their decades-long musical relationship.
