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.

When I first listened to the digital download the sound was terrible. I thought it was a defect in the ripping so was really disappointed when the same problems occurred on the CD. The mastering seems to be turned up so far that the sound is saturating and distorting. "Take Me" is the worst - I just can't listen to it. I've analysed the waveforms on the track and it shows square peaks where the sound is saturating, i.e. it's a real duff job. Sack whoever did this! I look forward to a 'remastered' version.

The best sounding tracks are the additional ones for the special edition, which don't seem to have been subjected to the producer's heavy fingers. If only the rest of the tracks were produced in the same way.

I've listened to the samples of the new version ("Outsider's Edition") on Amazon and "Take Me" sounds much the same. Shame, cos the production on the earlier albums was spot on, and the songs, and Paloma's voice, deserve better.

I found this very different to her two previous albums - both of which I love. It will probably take me a few listens to make up my mind on this new style.

Great album with great songs ,but the sound quality of the production on this album is not very good IMO. Will try CD version to see if its any better! May be I have a bad copy. But enjoy the soul funk sound. Reminds me of James brown meets Amy Whinehouse.If production was good on vinyl I would have given it 5 stars

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.
