I was (at one point) the sole & proud reviewer for Kirsty's only other solo album "Out", a beautifully crafted CD that could only hint of the massive voice that became Kirsty Hawkshaw and until recently could only be bought via Japenese import (a tragic sign of the times with our pre-fabricated British music industry!).
In fact the only negative note to bear in mind with reference to Meta Message is that most music shops will not even stock it!! The rest is just pure undiscovered & heartlifting genius! I cannot add much more than the previous reviewer (who summated matters superbly), suffice to say that if Hybrid, BT, Tiesto, Zero 7, & Delerium do it for you, then this CD is a MUST have in your collection. Little wonder (along with Jan Johntson) BT regularly flies our Kirsty abroad to record - reason why? Well no-one, repeat no-one quite captures the spirit of harmonic and melodic trance, dance, chill-out call it what you will than KH -she has the ability to turn an average song into a classic and her phraseology and range are literally jaw-dropping!
So, go on, impress your friends, buy this CD, play it and get lost in the undiscovered (after all these years!) genius that is Kirsty Hawkshaw! Brilliant and 10 years overdue!
