First I watched the official first video from the album, "dust on my shoes" and thought it was a bit too happy-clappy and too smooth for my tastes (loved the mysterious darkness of her debut back in the 80s). Still, I checked audio clips of some other tracks of the album and liked those better, so I ended up ordering it.

It comes with two disks, the proper new album and a bonus CD. I listened to the new material a few times, it was ok, I still like her voice and the kind of sounds she makes in general, some of the arrangements are interesting. But somehow it didn't grab me. I might have given it 3 stars.

When I got bored with it, I looked at the other CD, which according to the track list contained old songs from her previous albums. I assumed the record company had just thrown in some old recordings for the benefit of the younger audience who don't know the back catalogue.

When the CD came to Twist in my sobriety, around the middle, it finally struck me. This was not an old track. This was a completely new arrangement, with minimal instrumentation, of the old song. In this case, it was a guitar and a cello. And I found it breathtaking. And the other songs on the bonus CD are similarly reworked, and similarly brilliant.

I like the first CD, and most of the songs I like a lot more than the one chosen for the first video, but the bonus really got me hooked. Which is very ironic, as the whole idea of the album and the title track is not to go back to the past, and to me the most successful part of it is where she did go back to the past and reworked it. And this isn't even explained on the album sleeve. The only thing that points to this being new recordings is the fact that the instrumentalists for each track are listed in the booklet (typically with one of the two instrumentalists being the singer herself). This is a very well camouflaged treasure indeed.

I went to college in Basingstoke with Tanita but I never got around to buying her debut album, Ancient Heart, and then other musical avenues for me meant I never bought any of her other albums. Until I bought "Can't Go Back".

It was a chance article in the Sunday Times Culture magazine that informed me of this album and how good it was. And I have to say, having given it two listens this evening, it's a very good album. No 5-star reviews as, only one or two albums all year warrant that accolade so take it from me, 4 starts is a VERY GOOD album.

From the first listen it has enough to hold your attention but also to reel you in with sufficient melody and hooks. It's a mellow album but there is enough uplifting harmonies and piano to make it more than just "pleasant". Check out "Dust On My Shoes" as one of the best examples on the album.

So, in summary, it's a very good album and I've enjoyed listening to it this evening. I'm confident it'll be a grower too. Sorry it took me 24 years to get around to buying an album Tanita! I'm thinking it was worth the wait.

Hard to believe that it's been over 20 years since I was knocked out by Ancient Heart. On this latest offering Tanita sounds better than ever. Some excellent new material and some wonderful acoustic versions of some old favourites. A must have for any TT fan.

This album is not quite like 'Sentimental'. It is slightly upbeat. But the songwriting and production quality are first rate. I thoroughly enjoyed this album. The bonus live disc does not have a lot of information but the performance was excellent.

Excellent cd. Well worth the wait since Tanita's last cd. Typical Tanita, which I would recommend to any Tanita fans, or anyone new to her music.

A nice comeback. Lovely new album by a very talented artiste. I love all the songs on this new album, especially 'Make The Day' and 'Dust On My Shoes'. The bonus CD of the live tracks are definitely essential listening.

Tanita is one of my all time favourite solo artists. Love this album she hasn't lost her rare talent and internal and external beauty which comes through her music.

After a long absence, Tanita Tikaram comes back to revisit our planet, with songs we've missed too long - she just does what she's good at: pouring the light and warmth of her heart and soul into our ears - and we stand in awe: tanita thank you for your music!
