I just purchased the album this week, i watched an amazing performance of Rox on Later with Jools Holland a few months ago. This is a stunning debut album with lots of great tracks and amazing production, its one of best recent British soul albums over last 5 years or so in my opinion. The stand out tracks include Rock Steady, Not Going Back and Baby Left me. in fact every track evokes lots of feelings and positivity. There are shades of Motown ,Lauryn Hill ,Corrine Bailey Rae , so she is very well influenced. Rox is definitely one to watch for the future- a brighter future indeed for British soul .

Rox's debut album "Memoirs," combines pop and soul with memorable hooks and live instrumentation. Debut single, "My Baby Left Me," is a good indication of the sound of the album and is one of the strongest tracks. Other standout tracks include "No Going Back," "I Don't Believe," and the hauntingly beautiful "Oh My."

The rest of the tracks are much more laid back and many blend into one another (Breakfast In Bed, Precious Moments) which makes for easy listening until it is interrupted by the reggae influenced Rocksteady which, in my opinion, sounds out of place.

Flawless vocals and a catchy melodies make this one of the best albums to come out of the UK in a long time. This is definitely worth a listen particularly if you like artists such as Corinne Bailey Rae.

This is an album full of great songs, beautifully sung and well arranged. Not often will I start googling an artist on the strength of hearing a single track on the radio but after hearing "My Baby left Me" I was relieved to find that a full album was due out in June. Well, it's out, it's a great album so if you like strong poppy ballads sung with real authority, you can't go wrong.

Been listening to Rox since I heard her on Jules' Later and the album lives up to the promise. No weak tracks despite some record label orchestration in places. Her backing group alone are superb and need no additions. The only thing missing is some acoustic tracks - Rox are really good au naturelle.

Great voice & clearly very talented, its such a shame then that she's been so badly let down by poor production values. Honestly, it's like listening to it via someone else's ipod, sat next to you on the train. The tracks are 'tinnie' beyond belief & by half way through it became almost painful to listen to. I can only assume the low production costs are why this album was so cheap in the first place but I'd have been more than happy to pay more for it if the quality had been better. As it stands this will just sit on my shelf gathering dust rather than being played over & over again, as it deserves to be.

I bought this album after hearing track 10 "rocksteady" in a restaurant and downloading the track on Shazam. Great album, interesting voice, my personal view is that she is best suited to reggae songs, but who knows, when I am able to take the CD of 'repeat of track 10', i might hear what else she has to offer. Hope she brings out some new stuff soon

I read about this artist in a Sunday supplement magazine and listened to one of her songs on You Tube and loved her, a unique voice and different so I promised myself I would buy this album and it's great. Stunning.
