Product Description

BBC Review

At last - someone with enough talent and balls to take on the boys. For too long the pop/rock side of the industry has been dominated by testosterone-fuelled music. While Ms Winehouse continues to navigate a rocky path Remi Nicole is sneaking up from behind. The Lily Allens and Kate Nashes, who are adept at the whole social scrutinising debacle still have their place, but Nicole is streets ahead in the credibility stakes and shouldn't be lumped with the masses.

The London born musician's debut album My Conscience & I does however follow the life-commentary approach; "New Old Days" with its cheerful reggae verse and trip down memory lane leaning wouldn't be out of place on Allen's Alright, Still. But, Nicole's offering is far rockier; up-tempo tracks sit beside reflective, self-exploratory songs on what is a no fuss, honest record. The single "Rock 'n' Roll" with its unabashedly indie-pop slant tumbles along playfully, while the understated funkiness of closing track "Inside Of Me" displays Nicole's frayed vocal perfectly. And, although "Go With The Flow" is straight out of the Arctic Monkeys' songbook, it is catchy and danceable nonetheless.

At 24-years-old Nicole has that little bit more life experience behind her making the lyrics less contrived and predictable. But that doesn't mean she gets it right every time; ballad "Lights Out" is a less inspired addition while the lyrics on "Tabloid Queen" ('If you tried individuality, you may get by more happily') are a little on the cringe-worthy side. The strongest track "Go Mr Sunshine" is ironically where Nicole sounds most like the Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner. With classic northern soul clout it is a fantastic song guaranteed to have crowds jumping up and down at live performances.

Remi Nicole deserves to be a success in her own right without constant references to her contemporaries. The carefree, frank tone of My Conscience & I will cause the album to fly off shelves and should enable Nicole to carve a solid place for herself in the current indie-rock scene. --Gemma Padley

3.0 out of 5 stars A great debut, shame about the production 4 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD
Remi Nicole is a fresh, dynamic singer from the heart of "Norf" London. Her consonants may be dropped like Lily's but that's where the similarities end.

Nicole's songs are a little darker and more gritty than her contemporaries and deal with life and love in a down to earth, honest fashion. In her recent live dates she's sounded fantastic supporting Mr Hudson and the Library and Amy Winehouse.

Unfortunately this album has been overproduced, and her simple girl with guitar formula has been beefed up with multitudes of guitars, drums and other instruments that simply weren't needed.

These are great songs, there's no doubt about it (standout tracks "Rock and Roll" and "Go With The Flow" could easily give your Kate Nash and KT Tunstall a run for their money) but if it ain't broke, don't fix it, and it seems that someone's tried to polish her sound up a little too much for the commercial audience.

Neverless this album is worth a punt for its great songwriting and stick-in-your-head melodies, and Nicole is certainly worth seeing live for a true reflection of her talent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lite but fun 25 Mar 2008
By Steph
Format:Audio CD
Alright.... so you hear a few Remi Nicole songs that 'float your boat' and you decide to check her out, only to find opinions comparing her to Kate Nash and Lily Allen. And although there may me one similarity (namely the 'Laandaan' accentuated accent), I find the bountiful comparisons rather lazy, the same way reporters look to Wiki for background info, rather than making the effort to look for themselves...

OK i'm off tangent here..... but comparing Remi to said artists, is like comparing Sham69 to the Pistols... sure they're of the same vein, but they all stand alone as separate entities within their own unique right, complete with their own message, vibe and manifestation.

This is actually a very good UK Debut from an intelligent, witty and dynamic artist, replete with excellent hooks, atmospheres and a sound to prove her worth to be up there with the best.

If you're fed up of hearing about Lilly Allen and Kate Nash then I'm afraid you're not going to like the next couple of months. There's a new female singer on the block and undoubtedly she'll be compared to her predecessors by lazy journalists until the next one comes along and the trail continues.

Remi Nicole like the others makes her mark using `tell it like it is' lyrics but unlike them she backs them up with a great voice and catchy tunes. Her acoustic guitar complements every word that she sings and it doesn't take long to realise that this genre of music can be done properly.

The album kicks off with Go with the Flow, a tune that will likely be a future single as it's in the same vein as past singles Go Mr Sunshine and next track on the album Mr Rock N Roll which have both proved hugely popular.

New Old Days is guaranteed to please anybody in their early twenties as Nicole sings through all the classic 90's highlights including Pat Sharpe, Bomber Jackets and kids TV show Woof, who doesn't remember that?

Things begin to slow down a little from then on with great ballads like Lights Out and album highlight Right Side of Me taking over, both of which show the 24 year old is capable of writing great if not simple lyrics like those around her. Certainly she's nearer KT Tunstall than Lilly Allen by this point.

As things draw to a close she talks about situations that women must dread in Dates from Hell with a no held back opinion on what she wants from a man before final song Inside Of Me which is soulful and leaves you fully fulfilled.

Certainly if you're a fan of Kate Nash and those alike this album will be a winner but if you're not don't despair. Anybody with an appreciation of good music like that produced by Norah Jones and Katie Melua will also not be able to put this CD down for weeks such is its expressive hook.
