Biography

Biographyby Alex Henderson

As a rule, group efforts are normally launched before a solo career -- not after a solo career is in full swing. First, the artist makes a name for himself/herself as part of a group, then the artist leaves the group to become a full-time solo performer. That's the standard procedure, but British singer/songwriter Imogen Heap took a different approach, ... Read more in Amazon's Imogen Heap Store

If you like Fiona Apple and perhaps even Tori Amos, then Imogen Heap is going one step further with her dark and soulful songs that must be listened to more than once. Favourites being "Getting Scared", with its dark yet indepepndent quality, to "Whatever" which is bound to make you sing, and "Come Here Boy" which I've played so much that the CD skips through most of it through wear. I don't know whether or not it will appeal to everyone, but I personally check every CD store to see if another Heap creation will be coming out soon, and thankfully she's not commercial - yet. She's brilliant.

I Megaphone (an anagram of Imogen Heap) was released in 1998 on Almo Sounds. (Who have now shut down). It was produced by Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, David Khane, and Guy Sigsworth (recent producer of Madonna's What it feels like for a girl). It is a classic, moody, emotional, perceptive album. Everyone should have a copy. Since this album, Imogen has appeared on the successful Urban Species album Blanket out on Talkin' Loud records UK at end of 1998. She can also be found on the soundtrack to G:MT, a 1999 UK film, singing Meantime. Other collaborations are with Mich Gerber on Amor Fati and on the new Jeff Beck album You had it coming. She has now signed to Island Records UK as part of a new band Frou Frou with her old friend/producer Guy Sigsworth; look out for that....

Format: Audio CD
Two tracks really stand out on this album - "Angry Angel" (an interesting cross between Maria McKee's most recent work and Tori Amos in "Choirgirl Hotel" mode with a little Courtney Love thrown in for good measure) and "Rake It In" (again, in Maria McKee territory, with some very effective simple piano that is a joy to listen to). While Imogen Heap gets very close to Alanis Morrisette style angst more often than I'd like, she is musically way ahead of Alanis and the lyrics are a great deal better. A couple of not-so-good things, the albums was fairly obviously made on a budget, so it was pretty much stuck with a basic set of instruments where a bit of harpsichord (for example) wouldn't have gone amiss, and the accompanying booklet is very difficult to read. Other than that a great work, and a must-have for any music collection.

I first listened to this album on the recommendation of a friend, but initially found a lot of the tracks on the album a little 'hard' on the first few listens. However, there is something pervasive and powerful about her songs, and I have found myself reaching for this album more and more.

Stand out songs on the album are (for me):
Candlelight (beautiful, melodic piano based ballad)
Come here boy (sensual with delicious lyrics...this is a REAL grower)
Angry Angel (powerful, emotion packed)

Imogen Heap has a gorgeous, powerful and distinctive voice which is evocative, haunting and memorable.

If you like such artists as Frou Frou (on which Imogen sings), Fiona Apple, Beth Orton or even Bjork....slightly experimental, intelligent and thought provoking, then I cannot recommend this highly enough!

Imogen Heap is an amazing alternative artist who kicks ass! This album's perfect to listen to either when I want to just let go of everything and have a good scream, or when I'm feeling a tad emotional and all I want to do is hear some creative lyrics. From the peaceful "Sleep" to the upbeat "Whatever" and the mad "Rake it in", there's definitely a brilliant attitude in this album. Personally my fave tracks have to be "Angry Angel" and "Come Here Boy".

Being an Imogen Heap fan I'm a little biased, but EVERY song on the album is fantastic in its own way. Each verse on each song has its own personality and story and it is definately one of the best albums I've ever heard. This girl can't help but ooze good music and should be more successful, but sometimes AMAZING talent goes unnoticed because the artist may not 'appeal.'

Highlights: Getting Scared, Angry Angel, Rake It In & Come Here Boy

Disappointments: Shine (at first).

By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 5 Dec 2009
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
`I Megaphone' is Imogen Heap's first album before she found fame with Frou Frou and subsequent solo albums. It is produced by Dave Stewert and I found Imogen's early sound to be very reminiscent of both Alanis Morrissette and Tori Amos. One song that sounds like her later work is `Come Here Boy' and this is a standout track on the album. This album had plenty of her unique song writing and vocals that existing fans will enjoy and even at this stage you could tell that originality suffused every aspect of her music. As a stand alone album this is pretty impressive but if you come to this after hearing some of Imogen's later work you may be slightly disappointed; but there is no need really as this offers up some top tunes and shows the development of this underrated and unique artist. Worth a listen, especially if you are a fan of the aforementioned artists.
