4.0 out of 5 stars ...an out and out winner... 9 July 2009
By Mr. H TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It really is a hit and miss thing, this success malarkey. After all, why should squeaky Duffy and bland Adele get hyped up and invited to all the swish shindigs. Fair enough, Duffy had one good tune, but there's more life, verve and passion in these five tracks than in both other lassies albums put together.

Ms Russell has a voice that is instantly memorable, leaping out of the speakers, equal parts smooth and gritty. Chuck in a handful of really, really good songs, and this should be an out and out winner.

For sure, the arrangements are mining the same sixties soul scene as many others, but there's a loose, jazzy feel that brings to mind the best work of the Average White Band. Check out songs like 'Living The Life Of A Dreamer' and her cover of Gnarls Barkleys 'Crazy'. I defy you not to be converted to her cause.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Criminally under-appreciated talent 16 Oct 2009
Format:Audio CD
As others have said, why Alice Russell isn't up there with the Winehouses and Duffy's of this world is beyond comprehension. Those two couldn't even lace her boots when it comes to the voice. Oh, that voice! The most soulful, evocative sound ever to come from a set of pipes! Actually, I've just remembered how I described her to a friend who was only into whatever gets played on the radio. I said the only comparison I could think of that they would have heard of was Joss Stone. But good. And not annoying. Or with a fake American accent. And with a "real" band behind her.

This album is definitely a "must have", especially since it's got that whole funk and soul vibe about it that was perhaps missing on My Favourite Letters. The production by TM Juke is brilliant, really showcases Alice's voice well. If you're a fan of The New Mastersounds, Quantic Soul Orchestra, etc then you will loe this album (and I mean love). If only the record buying public looked behind the image and actually at the talent, then maybe Alice Russell would get the recognition she deserves. Who knows, maybe people will finally get on board with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Britain's most underrated singer 23 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
Ms Russell creates yet another must buy album . I simply cannot understand why Alice does not receive the critical acclaim her music warrants . The album offers delicious songs she delivers with great aplomb . I first discovered her music with the Quantic albums and fully expected her to break big , hopefully this is the album that does it . Pure quality from a great singer ! As with all of her albums this another must buy miss it at your peril.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy album 21 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
Alice Russell really does have one of the greatest voices you could ever hope to hear and this album showcases it beautifully.
In my opinion, there is only one musical experience that beats listening to this album and that's listening to her live.
Buy it!
You will not regret it.
