The thing I love about Amy Macdonald is that she is unique; when she sings there is no doubt who it is.
She has such a beautiful voice and writes the most amazingly heartfelt lyrics that always tell a story.
I have loved her first two albums, listening to them regularly, as much as any others in my collection; I have been eagerly awaiting this release for quite some time, so understandably my expectations were extremely high..........
And that is perhaps where there is an ever so slight disappointment.
Don't get me wrong it's a great album, but at the moment (after about half a dozen listens) it is yet to grab me in the same way as the previous releases.
I don't mean to suggest in any way that this album is anything but excellent, it's far superior to most others released recently, it's just that with such high expectations it was always up against it!
I will continue to listen to it, and still remain confident that it will just 'click' at some point, I will then undoubtedly have to change the four stars to five!
