I bought this album after seeing Juliet at the Empire pub in Belfast. I was quite honestly, bowled over by the beauty of her strange voice, the refreshing newness of her lyrics and the simplicity of her music. If you like upbeat, funky, yet slightly bluesy songs with strong lyrics and very memorable tunes buy this. Simply one of the best albums I've heard in a long time, if you are in search of something new, buy this, you won't be disappointed.

Having heard a few of her songs on Wogan I decided to investigate further and I am so glad I did. This album (and her subsequent one) is simply superb. Top class songwriting, excellent musicianship from Juliet and her band all topped off with that haunting Northern Irish brogue.
If you think of a mix of Edie Brickell and Dolores O'Riorden (from the Cranberries) you'd be heading in the right direction. Songs are beautifully crafted and produced - the CD hasn't been out of my player since I bought it. Highly recommended.
Check out her album 'Season of the Hurricane' too - very different from this but it continues to show Juliet's talent.

Discovered Juliet Turner when she was supporting Joan Armatrading recently. She has a haunting captivating voice that shimmers with purity. Her lyrics might be a bit Upper VIth English Lit student-y at times but the music is a real discovery. Buy this CD and start namedropping her before the masses discover her and jump on the bandwagon. And incidentally Terry Wogan apparently loves her -- and look what he did for Eva Cassidy!

By chance, hearing one Terry Wogan playing Juliet's new single off her latest album, I was intrigued enough to investigate this earlier piece of work, and a little gem it is, I have to say.
This is Juliet's second album (the first, a "home-made" effort titled "Let's Hear It For Pizza" is not currently available) and was recorded five years ago. It has sold very well in Ireland (she comes from Omagh) but not in the UK, largely because, until Wogan and colleague Janice Long picked up on it last year, it received no promotion or airplay. There is a possible second reason, which I will come to in a minute.
All but one of the songs and music are written by herself, with members of her backing band contributing on some of them - in fact the most instantly "commercial" numbers are hers alone. They are what you might call pop/rock, with definite folk and country tinges; if you want a comparison think a combination of the Corrs, Natalie Merchant, Tim Finn and Bic Runga. The title track, plus "Dr Fell" and "Take The Money and Run" are absurdly catchy; the rest are not far behind, and the occasional insinuation of clarinet and organ adds a piquancy to the melodies. Her vocal delivery is quite close-miked and personal, and she has the Dido-esque slide in her voice when it goes up. Every word is crystal clear, and she sings in her own, quite broad, Northern Irish "brogue" - this is actually very attractive, but not everyone might think so and it's probably the second reason she has not yet had the exposure she deserves.

I saw Juliet Turner when she was on tour and bought the album afterwards. Turner's songs are moving, quirky and entertaining, she combines Irish folk with other genres. Her album reminded me of Belle and Sebastian, the '60s singer Melanie with the better songs of the Cranberries combined. Perfect for an evening in with a glass of wine!

I was given a copy of this album by a good friend of mine whilst at University in Oxford. I had not heard any of Juliet Turners music before but I saw from the album sleave that she had done quite a lot of work with Iain Archer, a songwriter that I really admire. Bearing this in mind I gave "Burn The Black Suit" a whirl and loved it. Juliet's fantastic Irish vocals and the sparse recording make this an album that you MUST add to your collection. Buy this record and never regret it. You will be hooked!

I came to this having heard her singles on Radio 2. It's her accent as much as her tunes that stand out. I'm pleased to say it's a very nice album of the best pop music. One of those albums that you have the urge to play every couple of days. Very catchy and recommended.

This album is so unlike anything else I have heard - so don't believe people who say Juliet Turner is the New anyone - she may have many influences, but this album is unique.
1. Burn the black suit - my second favourite track, although some haven't thought as much of it as I have. I found it hauntingly catchy. Juliet manages to combine insight with simple words and rhythm - how many artists manage that?
2. Sorry to say - Another beautiful song with a tune that you simply don't expect. Juliet defines unpredictable
3. Call me green - a stand out track, with exemplary lyrics: "you were born too early, or I was born too late" Her gorgeous Irish accent comes across best on the word 'late' - listen to that and sink into the song
4. Theatre for the broken - Juliet's songs can seem like excellent but 'surface-only' tunes - listen to the lyrics of this song and the track 6 and this opinion is blown out of the water. So deep.
5. Dr Fell - my absolute favourite - v clever in its altering of a famous poem, and with a sublime chorus that comes in just when you don't expect it
6. Queen on Canal Street - see above
7. Belfast Central - Irish!! Excellent
8. Take the money and run - one of Terry's faves, and v catchy
9. Rough lion's tongue - another excellent, excellent track;
the way Juliet's voice slides over the words is inimitably fabulous
10. Narcissi - brilliant again, stream-of-consciousness
11. I hope that I don't fall in love with you - this song is so different to the rest of the album, and shows that Juliet can be diverse. A duet in which the voices complement each other sublimely.
You must buy this album - I found this album in a charity shop - some fool gave it away!! You will never want to do this, I'm sure.
