Paloma Faith - "Black & Blue"

Biography

Stepping out as a solo artist back in 2009, it was immediately and abundantly clear that Paloma Faith was the complete (and petite) package. A captivating chanteuse, a rabble-rousing entertainer and theatrical fashion chameleon, Faith’s debut album, ‘Do You Want the Truth, or Something Beautiful?’ remains a glossy collection of retro-referencing soul and sassy pop.

Once again Paloma explodes back onto the scene proving once and for all she is a vocal powerhouse. Paloma was most definitely born in the wrong generation. With Pharell produced tracks Paloma's beats are that bit more slicker. A perfect blend of heart ache and get on your feet and dance. She always manages to hit you where it hurts with her distinctive vocals...an album to be heard live for sure....Bravo Paloma.

sorry Paloma this album is a real disappointment. over production makes it sound like every other female singer, and you're better than that. The refreshing melodies of the first two albums made you stand above the crowd, and let your talents shine through. this is a retrograde step backwards. I was really looking forward to this albums release but apart from the art work I just was left feeling underwhelmed. How times change, from this time last year at somerset house which was a truly excellent concert, to this unremarkable offering.

Paloma is at her best, again. Really enjoyed her new album. She is very talented. I liked her from when I first saw her on Jools Holland.

This album is certainly more soulful than Paloma's first two efforts (I'll leave you to decide for yourselves whether that's a good thing or a bad one).

In my younger days I was a budding percussionist, so I am pleased at the amount of percussion used on this album - I can hear agogo bells on some tracks, amongst other instruments that don't often appear in modern music.

Moving on to the songs, I can honestly say I like every track on this CD with the exception of Take Me. An otherwise enjoyable song is ruined by that curse of the 1990s, a backing vocalist "whooping" every few seconds. If I could find a way to remove the whoops this would be a five-star album - instead, my finger will go straight to the fast-forward button every time this song starts. Another criticism is the use of electric drums on Impossible Heart, but they are not intrusive enough to spoil the song.

In addition to my earlier comment about a more soulful sound, there are times when I was reminded of Phil Spector's famous "Wall of Sound" (in a good way).

The deluxe CD ends with stripped-down versions of four songs (Can't Rely on You, Trouble With My Baby, Only Love Can Hurt Like This, and It's The Not Knowing). These work very well - in fact, I prefer the stripped down version of It's The Not Knowing to the version on the "main" album.

33 of 40 people found the following review helpful By A. Marczak TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Mar. 2014
Format: Audio CD
The first time I heard Stone Cold Sober, I was blown away by the voice. On her third studio album, Paloma Faith is still playing to her strengths, but has got some major back up this time. When I heard the opening bars of Can't Rely On You, I could feel the Pharrell influence, even before I was aware he was the producer, and there is a touch of class about the whole album.

The tone of the album follows the often-doomed-love mood of previous albums, but that doesn't mean it's a downbeat album. It's full of disco beats, guitar riffs, gospel and soul, and it's terrific to listen to. I'm still not sure it's as good as her debut, but it's still a great album, and one I will listen to again and again.

This CD is a bit of a disappointment. Long awaited as a Paloma fan, it doesnt compare at all to her last two cds at all. Perhaps it will be a grower.

paloma has got better with every album so far and this is no exeception! it is a beutiful collection of soulful,classy,glittery,sophisticated pop tunes wich experiment with soul,rock,disco and funk all to glourious effect, the songwriting on this album is truly fantastic putting a glimpse of hope on tragic times such as heartbreak, the prodouction is very good to,making beautiful melodies wich stick in your head without being annoying and complement the songwriting perfectly making you want to dance and cry at the same time, also it is perfect for listing to on long car journeys with a teenadger and two parents all singing along, this is not perfect but definitely worth a place in your cd and vinyl collections and on your ipods!
