Product Description

Charlotte Church is back with her first album in five years, Back To Scratch.

Her second pop album - following 2005's Platinum selling Tissues and Issues - Back To Scratch, shows off a mature, refined side to Charlotte, with a sophisticated pop sound. Partly written in Nashville with Luke Laird and Patrick Davis, she also worked with local Welsh artists The Druids and Jonathan Powell on the album.

Songs on the album include "Back to Scratch", the first single, recorded when Charlotte's relationship with Gavin Henson was breaking down, giving the track an extra, raw edge. Other highlights are "Ruby" (originally sung by French singer, Camille), the powerful ballad "Story of Us", Country-influenced "Don't Think About It" and a tender version of Joni Mitchell's classic "River".

I decided to buy the new offering from Ms. Church as I happened to be in the supermarket as they were being put out on the shelves. I listened to it on the drive to work and I have to say I was surprised (so much so that I am writing my first ever review!). I was a little disappointed with Charlotte's last album, I liked the melodies but I really felt that her voice was completely wasted on pop and on some songs it sounded a little odd. But on Back to Scratch she has really found her sound. Catchy, beautiful and melodic I loved every song on the album. I'm not an expert on music and my tastes can be pretty eclectic but I know what I like, and I like this! Her strong (but beautifully restrained) operatic voice balances out the acoustic style music perfectly; tracks like Snow really demonstrate just how soulful and pitch perfect she is. And Ruby is probably one of the sexiest songs I have heard recently!
Well done Charlotte!! You are certain to reassert yourself as a formidable singer and talented songwriter; if I ever see you out in Cardiff again I will definitely buy you a congratulatory drink!

I have always admired Charlotte Church, she has an amazing voice. So I was thrilled to see her perform on the Graham Norton Show, I loved her performance of that one track and so I bought the album. I wasn't disapointed. She has created a really unique and quirky sound, part rock, part pop and part folk. With all these elements put together she's created something really different and very beautiful and amazing, haunting and moving lyrics.
There's something for everyone and I will definitely be recommending it and continuing to listen.

This is an album that only Charlotte could have made. Her wonderful voice covers enormous territory on this album, from the operatics of Honestly, through the stage theatricals of The Actors right to the other extreme of the infectious, clever pop vocals of Logical World. Her feeling for a song & growing prowess as a writer is clearly evident, setting this album aside from the production lines of the major labels. A brave move to release this through her own Dooby Records label, but the correct one. She has blown this listener away.

Nothing like her past great music. She should have stuck to the classical side of music and not tried to go modern.

As usual, Charlotte shows off her wonderful voice in this new album. Not her previous classical style but new fresh songs. I ended up putting 8 of the 13 tracks on my mp3. "Snow" is my fav. If you're a fan of Charlotte this is a must buy.

This CD is very fascinating. It has a tendency to grow on the listener. In the beginning, I didn't particularly care about it, but after listening to it several times, I realized that the songs are very good and it's difficult to forget them. Good job!

I love this album. Saw her perform 'Don't Think About It' on a TV show and thought I will have to buy her album. So glad I did, as the songs are really good and are a bit different to the type of things you hear today. Would really recommend :)
