* SacredCow: Seems like it, very rarely attacked by critics. Being brought forward by Lou Reed and constantly engaging in different creative projects probably helps a bit.

The debut "''Mysteries of Love''" didn't really make a splash commercially or critically, and thus three years went on before the next EP, "''I Fell In Love With a Dead Boy''" which, along with the title track, contained a David Lynch/Angelo Bardalamenti cover from their [[TwinPeaks Twin Peaks]] soundtrack collaboration and a Current 93 cover, as a tribute to Tibet.
The EP found its way to Hal Wilner, he played it to his friend [[LouReed Lou Reed]] who was quickly enamored by Antony's unique voice and vision of Baroque Pop. The [[VelvetUnderground Velvet Underground]] legend quickly recruited Hegarty for his upcoming record ''The Raven'' and the exposure enabled Antony to ink a deal with American label Secretly Canadian.
