5.0 out of 5 stars High Fire and High Water. 20 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
How on earth aren't these four ladies better known ? If you like well crafted songs and beautiful harmonies this four piece are made for you.They remind me a little of the USA's Wailin Jenny's.I recently bought WTW's previous album on the strength of this and wasn't disappointed with that either.Just cannot understand why they are not given more air time.Was amazed to learn they may be splitting up.Please don't !

5.0 out of 5 stars From strength to strength - Fantastic! 27 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
OK.... where to start?

The first play of this CD was on the way back from the gig at Leeds on Thursday night.... my son (8 years old) was asleep in the back a little dissapointed that he did not get to hear "the Badger" song... my partner fast asleep in the seat next to me.

Having just heard all of the songs 'live' with the band for the first time I wondered how they would top what was a magical evening with four fantastic woman making 1.5 hours seem like five minutes.

Well, two hours later in the car and having played the CD twice... it is fantastic.

This album has a much harder edge to most of the songs on it from the previous two... it picks up from the previous two albums with a stunning 11 songs (yes 11 not 10)!

I liked "Yorkshire Lad" (as I am one!) and "Jenny Thornton" with Becky painting such a moving picture of a northern town, the words poetic yet delivered with such style.

Only Human will be an easy tune to like first time however for me "top of the hill" is as good (and I never thought I would say this) as "Brilliant" (from the second album)... Patsy has a voice that goes right to the heart.

Rachel's voice is amazing, "Me Leaving Me" is so good with such a catchy corus.... and electric guitar on this makes you want the song to go on and on.... (the first song I heard was "Waking Hour" with Rachel taking the lead in a pub in Leeds with about 20 people in it... I was hooked from there onwards...)

All in all there is not one track that is dissapointing....

When the "witches" come near you in the 40 date tour for this album then go and see them, its a treat that I hope to have al least 3 or 4 times over then next couple of months.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most under rated band in the UK 2 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you've got their last album - this one's even better. If you haven't got their last album then you're in for a treat as you discover this fantastic foursome with amazing vocals.

Critics are saying that they've developed their own genre of "acoustic indie", they're certainly unique with a funky acoustic guitar sound and great songs. For me Rock and Roll stands out as my favourite track. The others are all great, the track Jenny Thornton reminds me a bit of Eddi Reader.

I got this album when I saw them live on their current 38 date tour (or should that be 40 Rachel)! Check out [...] for tour dates and if you get the chance go see them live and be blown away.

5.0 out of 5 stars GETTING BETTER ALL THE TIME 23 Dec 2007
By Boswell
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a huge leap forward after the previous two albums. The writing, production and singing are so much better and a lot more mature. The way the girls jump from one lead voice to another works seamlessly. All four contribute in their own way and it provides for a pleasurable listen. Rock n Roll,Jenny Thornton and Me Leaving Me are a great opening trio and the quality never lets up UNTIL the final track - Yorkshire Boy. This is such a weak song that you wonder if its slipped in by mistake. The rest of the album is pure class and the girls deserve to succeed and be recognised as the major talent they are. So how about a smile on the next cover photo?
