I'm into Rnb/Soul/Hip Hop, but I have no problem saying that I own this really good set of songs.
Her music has never been groundbreaking, but has always been good.
"Dreams" is her signature track, and most people's favourite Gabrielle track. I know it is mine. Its her story. It what she is about. Its a perfect track and one which she will always be able to say is a "classic". This track will get played on radio in another 10 years time.
"Going Nowhere" is a track with that 90's feel which is catchy but its track 3 "I Wish" which I love. Its about someone in her record company she fancied. Its a perfect song for someone you like, and her lyrics are what most of us think of in that situation. Its tracks like this that make Gabrielle not a mega star but a real woman with something to say.
"Because of you" and "Forget about the world" are two sweet track. The latter being more deep about a friend of hers who was a lesbien, whose parents weren't too happy. Great Stuff.
"Give Me A little more time" is classic Gabrille. Its her sound. "If Your Really Cared" is a heart wrenching number, which has some fantastic guitar rifts, and a track which only her voice could make sound so real.
She does a cover of the classic Dionne Warwick track written by the legend that is Burt Bacharach "Walk On By". Its a great effort and one you wont be skipping.
Sunshine was the first single to be lifted from the Rise album. Another beautiful track. The song "Rise" was the killer track that went to number one, and really purt her firmly on the map. Still gets lots and lots of airplay today and will for many years to come.
Ive nearly forgot to mention the absolute classic duet with East 17 "If You Ever". This track was superb when it was released all those years ago - and it still is today.
Newer tracks such as "When A Woman", "Should I stay" and "Don't Need the sun to shine" are all included, which are all welcomed.
Gabrielle will never have the superstar status that some have, but I think that she really doesn't care and is happy to be making music people enjoy.
This set is easy listening and very enjoyable.
