I'm kinda disapointed :(
Though I'm only on track 2.
Does it get better?
i know what you mean, it the blatant over production, it detracts from her raw brilliance. plus im not keen on her re-recording samson it this over blow manor, it was perfect as it was.
though aprÃ©s moi is rather good!
more 'mainstream' but her spark is still there, the production doesn't detract from the songs, it adds to them. You just have to get used to it.
i think it's definitely on a par with Soviet Kitsch, just in a different way. am thoroughly entertained the whole way through, even with listens approaching the hundreds.
the first 2 tracks are great for your average jools holland viewer.
the first 2 tracks are terrible in terms of gloss and glean for fans of anything she has done to date.
the album doesn't have anything as good as 'Us' but it is incredibly addictive and one of the albums of the year. it's brave to wander into that wider world but shes risen and really stepped up to the plate and to be honest, everyone should buy this for their mums for christmas if they have a passing liking of anything Kate Bush or Alison Moyet or souly-jazz.
