I have no idea why Sophie Ellis Bextor or Dido get any radio play as SBH is an artist that outshines so many other female song writes and vocalist, anyway I like SBH a lot and for me this album is a joy to listen to.

sophie has a raw and intimate vocal which is unique! she is deeply underestimated!

people know her best for her debut single "damn i wish i was you lover" ...every album has some stand out tracks and this no exception....but i will focus on the good!

"the land the sea and sky" shows her at her best vocally and as a songwriter..."life is a river" has beautiful lyrics and an amazing vocal..."miles away" is as personal as every song sophie writes and it has great lyrics!

some great tracks but some self indulgent tracks!

but you wont be disappointed!

Fantastic Sophie returns with new album after a long break! For so long, but we always wait. The compositions, as usual, in the style of Sophie and very well that there is no fashion! Beautiful acoustic versions of greatest hits. The entire record consistent and beautiful. May not have to wait for another for a long time. How much I would give to see Sophie live in Europe, they are your fans and I am a loyal Polish fan since 1994 :) Genialna Sophie wraca z nowym albumem po d'ugiej przerwie ! Tak d'ugo ale warto zawsze czeka' . Kompozycje jak zwykle w stylu Sophie i bardzo dobrze , 'e nie ulega modzie ! Pi'kne akustyczne wersje najwi'kszych hitów . Ca'a p'yta spójna i pi'kna . Oby nie trzeba by'o czeka' na kolejne za d'ugo . Ile bym da' by zobaczyc Sophie na 'ywo w Europie te' s' Twoi fani a ja jestem Polakiem wiernym od 1994 roku :)

Not her best album, I thought on some tracks she was struggling, like she had a sore throat or something, still worth having though.

Yes! That Sophie B. Hawkins. Remember? From the nineties? 'Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover' and the other one. Thingy. 'Right Beside You'. And, um, 'Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover'. No, we've had that one already. Anyway, 1992 was a big year for Ms Hawkins, what with the hit singles and all that goes with it. I would like to claim that she's kept herself busy since then, but a workrate of 4 albums from her debut to this 2012 release, "The Crossing" would seem to indicate otherwise. Apparently, there was an argument about a banjo in nineteen ninety something which scuppered one of her albums, and she took a half.

So, based on the two songs of hers that I know, and an admiration for her stance regarding said banjo, what do I reckon to this album. Well, it's alright. You won't be surprised to learn that Ms Hawkins is a bit of a hippy liberal, so there are songs about Hillary Clinton, the Gulf Of Mexico oil spill, and the illegal trafficking of puppy organs by multinational corporations who have to remain anonymous for legal reasons. Soundwise, not much has changed in the last twenty years. It's still jazzy, folky, country, poppy singer songwritery stuff. With the odd power ballad for luck.

She was always a good singer and her voice remains very listenable. When the songs perk themselves up a bit, as they do on the likes of 'Sinnerman', 'Georgia' and the jazzy 'Dream St & Chance', it all becomes very good indeed. But there is a fair amount of driftwood like 'Red Bird' that probably sounds great down the hummus bar, with a glass of ethically produced Chardonnay, but which in the cold light of day just doesn't catch fire.
