Having been a fan of Heather's work for a few years now, I was mildly disappointed with her last outing "South", which was a departure from her more spiritual sound to a more commercial effort, though there were one or two efforts in there that gave us hope.
However, I am glad to report that this new album has Heather back to her true form. From the first play,I knew this cd would encapsulte me, and I have to declare that this is Heather at her most honest and best recording performance so far.
The songs are so very much more intense, more earthy and simple, but yet her voice is at it's most haunting best throughout. Efforts such as One Day In June and the title track Storm, has proved that Heather has the ability to cause fragility in one's heart and mind, while other highlights such as All I Need and Everything, just back up what is a truely inspired piece of work.
I have always wished Heather had more sales success, especially in the UK, but at times, I am glad that she is not this commercially huge music icon, because somethings are best kept and best left a secret, and Heather Nova is one hell of a little secret!
