10 long years since Lisa's last album, The Moment and we are gifted the truly wonderful Seven. Where The Moment seemed to lack a certain indefinable something Seven sees Lisa back at her best.
Lead single Can't Dance kicks of proceedings in fine style, a great dance floor filler showcasing Lisa's vocal range and the killer tracks keep on coming, Why is so catchy you'll be humming it all day, So Be It, The Crown and Love Can all have their drama and punch in the emotional lyrics and music, best though are the big Lisa songs, the ballads.
The Rain is as drama filled as anything Adele could deliver, Conversation stops you in your tracks and as for Stupid Heart? For me this is the best Lisa Stansfield song I've ever heard, having heard it live a few times over the last year I was really looking forward to this track on the album and it does not disappoint, a big big song both musically and vocally Lisa gives it her genuine all with that glorious voice and creates real magic - I love it.
To anyone who has ever liked a Lisa Stansfield song I would recommend you go and buy this album, it's been a long wait, but by heck it's been worth it!
