Why has this talented young lady not received the recognition that she deserves? Thankfully, the film "American Pie" helped to give her some - as soon as you hear "Sway", you'll recognise it if you've seen the film. But, Bic deserves to have the recognition for her other tracks also.
She has an amazing voice, and while this is easy to tell from listening to "Sway", perhaps the best song on the album for showcasing her voice is the opening track, "Drive". This song is just Bic singing along to a guitar - it is simple yet beautiful. I won't comment on "Sway", so many other people have done so already - it goes without saying what a great song it is.
Another of my personal favourites is "Hey". Again, her voice is the most noticeable thing. But, unlike the previous two songs, this song reaches a great crescendo adding power to the song as a whole.
Give this CD a try, I doubt you'll be disappointed. It may not be the same as the pop music in the charts, but it is nothing less than pure talent - something not always found in chart music these days. Bic Runga is not just a pretty face, she is a proper artist, with bags of talent.

I bought this album without ever having heard any of her music - just read a review in the Times - superb! The lyrics are powerful and the music refreshing - definately addictive - a real find!

I first listened to this album in 1998 after receiving it from my now New Zealand wife Holly. After just one play I was hooked! The whole album is one joyful ride from start to finish. Highlights for me were Sway, Without you and Drive. Bics voice is so hauntingly beautiful, just writing this puts a smile on my face remembering it all. Even 2 years later we still play it regularly. One of the songs is in the hit movie American Pie. Its just a shame the album never really took off in the UK. I would give this 5 stars everytime. Also look out for her sister too, who's band Stella are doing big thing in New Zealand at the moment.!

a voice like this should be heard not hidden away. a sense of music like this should be evrerywhere and not stiffled. all self produced and thought provoking. and you know you have had relationships like those described. Put your ear to the ground and listen to this album before she's discovered over here. I'm just waiting for the next album. Oh and Sway, if there was a god it would have been number one for weeks. vocally she can sound a bit like Andrea corr sometimes, but she has a better way of rocking out. appearently she has a sister who has a band too, but I havn't heard anything by them yet.
