5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year already? 31 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
Lotte Mullan is something of an enigma, one of the UK's hardest working and most musically accessible singer/songwriters, yet one curiously (to date) absent from the melee of celebrity/pop culture.

The quality of 'Plain Jane' comes as no surprise, having seen Lotte live various times (first in 2008 whilst on tour with much-hyped but now long-forgotten trio Mercurymen...where are those three hunks now? And most recently with the brilliant Alex Reeves on percussion) I have been aware of the quality and substance of her songwriting and performance for a long while, and have been waiting on tenterhooks for the release of this fine record since the announcement of its impending arrival, back in 2011.

Opening with the philosphical and unimpeachably catchy 'Fire In My Soul', the album traverses all manner of musical terrain over its 40 minute journey from start to finish, including the heartbroken lope of 'Would You Be So Kind', Rohypnol lullaby 'Wicked Way', the deeply persuasive future single 'Alright With Me', the irresistable sunshine-and-Uke-driven shagalogue 'When You Know', the glorious pop of 'The Last Time I Got High' and the Tennessee Three redux of the brilliant 'Give It Back'.

'Plain Jane' has been a long time coming, but now that it has arrived, do yourself a favour and wallow in it...it's not just an album, more a light-footed (yet often heavy-hearted) trip through the days and musical diary pages of one of the finest songwriters working today.

Album of the year? It's barely even February, but it'll take quite a heavyweight to topple this gem of an album from the top of my personal charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars No plain Jane! 30 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
At a time when we seem swamped by TV shows declaring that someone or other '..HAS TALENT' or that someone we've never heard of is a 'CELEBRITY', one could be forgiven for thinking that as Lotte Mullan hasn't appeared in either of these genres then she is neither. Happilly though I can say that Lotte Mullan is a rare and refreshing breed these days and does in fact posess both of these qualities 'with knobs on'! Having been lucky enough to see her perform four or five times over the past year or so, I can vouch for her talents as a song writer, a musician, a vocalist and a performer. As each concert has ended I have been left wanting to see her perform again (and soon!) and the best thing I can say about this cd is that it leaves me feeling exactly the same way! Lotte sings songs that we can all relate to as she writes with a sense of passion, honesty and humility that reaches the parts other songs fail to reach. Her sometimes gentle, sometimes bouncy vocal delivery is always stylishly elegant and possesses that rarest of abilities, to make the listener feel that she is singing for you and you alone... disarming and charming at the same time. Her guitar playing is faultless and works as a perfect compliment to her songs... never too much nor too little - always just right.

I know that it may appear that I am writing from the perspective of a live concert but this is but a further compliment to this lady's extraordinary musical abilities. So often I have heard an album and then been disappointed by the ensuing live gig but with Lotte Mullan, this is never the case. What you hear on the cd is not some clever studio gimmickry designed to create 'an impression' - no, this is Lotte... she writes the songs, she plays them and she sings them so what you get is as honest as it is beautiful (...
