There are a number of things to love about this album. Not only does it hang together well as an album, better it sounds as if a lot of time and thought went into making sure it did. The art of how to make an album (rather than a collection of songs which fill up a cd) is a dying one and Goldie and her band seem here to have grasped the concept of making the listener want to play the whole cd again straight away than fallen into the trap of repeating themselves or 'outstaying their welcome'.

Some serious talent is at work here. Musically, while the band certainly have a style all their own, dotted among the grooves of this album are references to either conscious or unconscious influences. Opener 'Fall From Grace' has a gentle hint of the melancholic, echoey twang of The Smiths 'How Soon Is Now' for example while the outstandingly beautiful 'Butterflies' has shades of bluegrass mixed with Eva Cassidy. The first single from the album, 'Bittersweet' sounds much better here than the edited single version. Edits, while sadly essential for today's radio, are rarely as good as how an original song manifested itself to the artist and any kind of fade on this playful, confident, slinky groove was never going to work. In fact, I feel sorry for the band because 'Bittersweet' deserved to be a hit. Still, worry not is what I say because hits are surely going to come at some point based upon this evidence.

At present, songs like 'Captured In A Bottle' and (second single) 'Fading Rose' are slightly off the radar for the general public but to those of us with a love of something less commercial and as far removed from the X Factor as possible they and the rest of this album are a delight.
