Biography

What colour is your soul? After fifteen years in rock ‘n’ roll and still only in her twenties, the colour of Charlotte Hatherley’s soul is a double rainbow beamed through a kaleidoscope and shot through a crystal prism. Since 2006, the year she strode away from the ten-million-album-selling Ash, her inner colour contrast has been turning, slowly, all the way up to 11; today, ...

Product Description

BBC Review

While The Deep Blue is Charlotte Hatherley's attempt at breaking away from previous project Ash (yes, this is her second solo album, but the first was released while she was still with the band), the only tracks that don't grate away at the eardrums are those that vaguely resemble her former musical mates.

''I Want You To Know'' is one of two standout tracks on this album. Upbeat, emotive, and miles ahead of anything else on this LP, this is where Hatherley sounds most comfortable. Lashing out at ex-boyfriends with that 'better off without you' attitude: 'Oh baby are you sad and lonely, Well I'm just doing fine (I want you to know)'.

''Very Young'' also jumps out and dares to be noticed. Again, Hatherley rocking out works and this is something that should be taken from the album. Certainly this track's a highlight and one to savour at live performances.

Other than that it's pretty hard to tell the other numbers apart from each other. Down on the OK list - if there had to be one - would be ''Behave'' which is non-offensive. ''Wounded Sky'' also has potential but overproduction removes any emotion and it sounds like she's holding back. It's not a great sound.

Which leaves The Deep Blue as somewhat self-indulgent and boring and, unfortunately, there's little original here - no boundaries being pushed, no risks taken - and the album suffers greatly for it. Maybe Ms Hatherley was actually better off with Ash than without. --Alex Kenning

4.0 out of 5 stars Patience is a virtue 2 Oct 2007
By Steve
Format:Audio CD
It has to be said that during the first 3 months of me owning this album, we didn't quite click. Just like the awkward silences you tend to get when you're left in a room with someone you should know, but never really know what to say to. Anyhow rambling analogies aside, this album is to put it bluntly a serious grower. It takes time, as the poppier elements of the record are more subtle than Grey Will Fade which by this judging, is an out and out pop record.

One thing that Charlotte proves on this album is her ability to write a consistent body of work for a record, and stick to a particular theme, making the albums much more of a one-sitting affair. Given time, the lilting melodies and hazy dream like music that features throughout the Deep Blue will seep into your brain, and lodge themseleves there for some time, much like the acclaimed debut but on a completely different level.

Charlotte could have made Grey Will Fade 2 with comfort for this album, but it's good to know that leaving the excellent Ash has given her the confidence to prove that her music is light years away from the Wheeler hit factory. This is something different from a songwriter to cherish, investigate this, immerse yourself in it and then learn to love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The continuation of excellence 23 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
When I was broadsided by Charlotte's wonderful debut album, my only concern was can she possibly maintain this standard? I needn't have worried. After several plays in my first week of ownership, I can safely say The Deep Blue is as good as, if not better than, Grey Will Fade. The choppy chord changes are still there in the more up-tempo tracks like Very Young and I Want You To Know, but the whole feel of the album is a broadening of the palette. With the sumptuous Wounded Sky, the incredibly catchy Behave which really should have been the first full blown single release. Then there's Roll Over (Let It Go) which is a beautiful ballad which transforms into a belting rock finale and the crackling Siberia as a fitting final track (though fast forward to 7 mins 40 secs and there's a gorgeous hidden bonus track called Lost In Time). To single out tracks for praise seems unfare as there isn't a bad (or even average) one on the album.

Have I conveyed my enthusiasm sufficiently yet?! Charlotte has released this album independently due to insane lack of interest from record companies. Support the talent and buy this album. You wont be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charlottes' Progress Continues... 21 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
Firsty, I do recomend that you listen/pick up her debut "Grey Will Fade" before purchasing this. It gives a better indication of how she got to this point, taking the risk of leaving Ash after nearly a decade. I won't break this album down track by track, but if you do want a typical indicator of her output, the more poppy tracks are "I Want You To Know" and "Behave". Generally on this album, Charlotte has decided to expand the textures of her sound compaired to Grey Will Fade. She maintians and expands on the proto-punk and 80's styled britpop, but moves foward with her scope. But as always it's best to sample it for yourself. If she can improve her stage presence she can very well cut it on her own...
