I was tipped off about this one by the Guardian (of all people), and I remember listening to the astonishing vocals down a poorly executed telephone track sampler...and yet it she still sounded remarkable. I never cease to be surprised that no-one seems to know of Mimi or of this album. It has an embarrassment of riches - the song-writing, the production, the melodies, and - of course - that voice. Some voices are just supercharged with life - think about the reason cliches like 'haunting' and 'raw power' exist in the first place and you'll get close. Listening to this album requires the indulgence you would invest in reading a book, and you get a similar reward. Musically it is quite eclectic and difficult to place. I can tell you what it's not - definitely not indie, definitely not retro, not dance, not bigbeat - but aside from that you just have to go out and discover it for yourself. My favourite track is Watch; put it on, lay back in your beanbag and float away to a better place. It's that good. Trust me; you won't be disappointed.
