Product Description

Lisa Stanfield’s career has spanned over 3 decades, boasting sales of nearly 20 million records and a string of international top 10 hits including: Around The World, Change, All Woman and Someday. The aptly named album Seven is Lisa’s 7th studio release and promises to galvanise her fan base old and new. The Grammy nominated, multi BRIT, Ivor Novello and Silver Clef Award winner has returned to the studio to record along with long-time songwriting partner Ian Devaney, whose credits include The Bodyguard and Indecent Proposal soundtracks. Seven which has been produced and written in the UK by Lisa Stansfield and husband Ian Devaney features tracks such as: Can’t Dance, The Rain, Stupid Heart, Conversation, The Crown, Strong, So Be It and Picket Fence Recorded in both Los Angeles and Manchester, Stansfield has collaborated with John "JR" Robinson, known as the most recorded drummer in history and Grammy award winning orchestrator Jerry Hey, both integral to the creation of Michael Jackson’s “Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad” and have worked with Lisa for over two decades. Following her critically acclaimed return to live performance in 2013– The Times said “Lisa still has the most distinctive and sensuous voice in soul pop” Seven marks Lisa’s return to the international stage and confirms her status as one of the UK’s premier recording artists. The Deluxe Edition contains extra bonus audio tracks.

I have all previous releases from Lisa Stansfield and was looking forward to the new release.

Overall impression, after a couple of listening sessions, is that it is very good. Mostly a bit different to her previous albums but good progression.

Can't wait for more from one of my previous favourite artists.

NOTE TO DISTRIBUTORS: Please stop using the CHEAP cardboard sleeves for CD's. You already make plenty of money so stop penny pinching by using cardboard sleeves. They rip when one tries to remove the sleeve notes or the actual CD. If I have bothered to BUY the CD instead of just downloading the MP3 files it is because I want to 'own' the physical item. Cardboard sleeves are rubbish when stacked in a collection as it is frequently difficult to read the title /artist on the spine, they tear too easily and do not wear well with time.

Before you read this review, you need to know I'm not one of those fans who would review everything Lisa did with 5 stars. She's one of those artists I like, but who can deliver some vey mediocre recordings from time to time. I'm very happy to say though, that this is not one of them and it's barely been out of my CD player since it arrived at Txacoli Towers!

Lisa has delivered a stunning album of styles and musical flavours to suit everyone and to those reviewers who feel that she's phoned-in these vocal performances and that they are devoid of emotion, I'm sorry but you are SOOOOO wrong! Starting with the funky dance-pop of "Can't dance", there's an immediate U-turn straight into the finger-snapping big band jazz of "Why", which wouldn't seem out of place in one of those detective film noirs from the 1950's.

I'm not going to review every single song intimately, but even the album filler tracks are of a very high quality. The one downside for this particular reviewer is "The crown", which I'm not at all fond of. With a very strong nod to today's R&B stylings, the lyrics "You're pissing on my ground" I find a little gratuitous and unnecessary - and this from someone who can swear like a navvy when the mood takes me!! Personally, I don't think this particular style suits her, although it takes all sorts and I'm sure others will disagree with this.

Highlights on the album are many, but for sheer perfection, you can't beat "The rain". This is a big, emotional mid-tempo ballad that sounds like it was performed live, thanks to the sound of the Telefilmonic Orchestra in the background. If this isn't a single and doesn't get heavy airplay, then there's something wrong.

After 2004's rather dull 'The Moment' labour Stansfield comes roaring back with the magnificent 'Seven'. Older and no doubt wiser her voice has deepened in the intervening years bringing a pathos to her voice that really suits her soulful style. Her love of the soul diva is no more evident on the highlight that is 'Stupid Heart' where she matches Bettye Swann or even Etta James for emotional impact. It's one of several highlights that include the lyrically interesting 'Picket Fence', the sweet Philadelphia soul pop of 'So Be it' and the homage to northern soul 'Carry On' . The decision by Stansfield and her husband Iain Devaney to use a full orchestra for some cuts such as 'The Rain' and 'Conversation' heighten the tension and work very well. If some of the songs are a tad derivative they are all newly written and there's not a filler amongst them. All in all its a fabulous collection of songs sung beautifully with a maturity that comes with living a few years. Some fans hoping for a 80/90s retro album will, no doubt be disappointed with only the 'The Crown' and 'Love Can' really hitting that neo soul feel of programmed drums and keyboards. The musicianship on display is superb consisting, as it does of real musicians playing together and that includes real drums!. It's the essential humanity of musicians playing together and bouncing off each other that wins for me. Honesty is the essence of soul and that what's on display here. There are a number of live bonus tracks on my copy that are current but represent songs from the Lisa canon. They include a knock out live version of 'Someday' replete with a brilliant sax break from Mick Donnelly.It's a gleeful return from Lisa Stansfield.

Format: Audio CD
At 47, Lisa Stansfield's seventh SEVEN album arrives after 10 year's pause from the world of music and immediately secures its place as a classic among Stansfield's discography filled with soul, jazz, blues and dance traks that flow effortlessly and confidently as a mighty river.
From upbeat “Can't Dance” to 70's classic soul sound of “Love Can” you are taken on journey of love, heartbreak, hope, and self respect. Stansfield may have been absent for the past 10 years with occassional gigs in night clubs but now she deserves all the accolades for her work on Seven. On the other hand, she has nothing to prove and it comes through the music of SEVEN. Brilliant Album.

This album glows with soulful abandon, a real treat for the ears on a cold February day!
There is a rich blend of northern soul, disco, ballad and slow burners on offer, that Lisa provides in her own unique style.
If you love Lisa Stansfield's music then buy this, you will love it!
