I note the polarised earlier reviews on Gwn's latest album. I am in the camp of the reviewer who saw her perform the latest songs live. I had that luxury last night in Lichfield and can only say to the owner of Bittersweet and Blue go and see her, then play the disc again, hopefully you will experience that clicking in. This is not a halo review on the back of the concert as I have played the disc today,(including non performed tracks), and find it exceptional. A comment was also made in a review about gimmicky production. Again I find it outstanding which considering Seb Rochford was at the helm is not surprising.

I have all 3 of Gwyn's albums and thoroughly enjoy them all, but this last one is special as it has greater songwriting input from her and produces some very special originals. For poignancy and sparse arrangements try Midnight Oil or In The Meantime. For more jaunty fare
with intriguing rhythms try The Woman Meets The Wiseman or The Morning After. In truth it's all very special, in fact,(and bearing in mind my wife describes me as a compulsive purchaser - fair comment), it's a clear contender for my album of the year.

I have to agree comparing this album with Stacey Kent is incorrect. I have 4 of her excellent albums, and in covering the standards she definitely is at or near the top of the tree. However, Gwyn is different and we should treasure the fact that at 25 she has produced 3 outstanding albums with great variety. This last one though is special as it is a true original. Quite frankly we should be grateful we have her, as although I am someone with very wide tastes, I have to say she is unique. I can't think of a better complement to her talent.

If you try to reconcile the mixed reviews maybe the tiebreaker should be do you think Blue Note would have signed her up if they didn't see something special ? Buy but also go and see -you won't regret it.

Some of the positive reviews below have put the case for this album very eloquently so I'd just like to take issue with some points in the negative reviews below.

There are truly some bizarre comments in some of the less than favourable reviews below. For the life of me I can't hear anything gimmicky about the production (or arrangements) on this album -it seems quite organic to me. There's nothing on here to frighten the horses whatsoever.

Also, you can't compare this to "Breakfast On The Morning Tram" where Stacey Kent abandons the Great American Songbook and replaces it with songs that sound like they come from the Great American Songbook. Breakfast On The Morning Tram is an excellent album but it's a bit cloying in places and sometimes the lyrics (whilst very polished) seem like a bit of an academic exercise whereas the lyrics here feel lived.

Maybe Gwyneth sounds like she's more influenced by Joni Mitchell than anyone else but that's not a heinous crime.

Cutting to the chase, the songs on this album are excellent, atmospheric (and melodic), and are presented perfectly.

I saw Gwyneth live at Bristol's Colston Hall, a gig that demonstrated her superb voice in cosy, warm surroundings. The album is a fine reminder of her live performance, the highlight of which was Midnight Oil sung amongst the audience without a microphone. The studio recordings can never capture such a magic moment, but they do provide a greater clarity of diction which helps the listener appreciate Gwyneth's lyrics to the full. Buy this album and you'll find yourself recommending it to friends in no time.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Gwyneth live twice at the Stables. She is fantastic live and I would encourage anyone to go and see her if they have the chance.

This album is beautiful. Lyrically it's lovely, and it sounds wonderful too. It feels like a Gwyneth album, like it has some of her personality shining through.

My personal favourites are "The Woman Meets The Wiseman", "That's The Kind of Man" and "Whisper Low."

A fresh, moving, witty selection of material, immediately striking and accessible, but with layers of musical detail and lyrical interest that repay repeated listening. Combines melancholy and joy with ease.
