Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Contraband is a very special gift to the world. Kirsty McGee has poured out this exquisite collection of songs as a cathartic response to heart-break and adversity. Although much of the material expresses personal loss, devastation, sadness, bitterness, disorientation and a desperate attempt to make sense of it all, the promise of healing and new life ultimately emerges triumphant. The songs are beautifully crafted and the arrangements are warm and tasteful. Kirsty's vocals have become a little quieter and more vulnerable than before but are perfectly suited to the material. Contraband deserves to take its place among the very best singer songwriter albums not just of today but of any age. It may not be for the faint hearted, but in my experience great pieces of art never are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful songs. A perfect album in every way. 13 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD
These songs are beautiful in their lyrics, tunes and delivery. Why isn't she better known? A real discovery for me. Just try this wonderfully crafted CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lyrically perfect, Vocally flawless ! 12 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
The depth and complexity of all human emotion hides tenderly at the sheepish and broken heart of this exquisite and touching treatment of songs, the fifth in a beautiful collection of albums. Touching and elegant this album was born in a dark place, yet from the compression and desolation of loss and disappointment come unfurling the petals of hope and lightness. It is hard not find a connection with Kirsty's pain and heartache this album and it is impossible not to be touched by it's erudite sweetness.

Lyrically perfect, Kirsty speaks to us heart-to-heart, with a diamond cut honesty that is inescapably direct.

Vocally flawless, and somewhat more withdrawn than on previous albums Kirsty feels physically defeated, there is a black-hole behind the airy, breathy, tender vocals that pulls you towards her, and arrests attention like nothing I have heard in years. Sitting somewhere between Suzanne Vega and Melua

The opening track, something going set's the tone of the whole album, with a deconstruction of relationship which seems to have faded, she laments "there are evenings when you wish the sun would stay, if only stay to keep you company".

This album is simply divine, buy it and you will have a friend for life, you will have a hard job finding a more inspirational and tender collection of songs from the last decade.
