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!

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.

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...

Once again, Charlotte comes up with the goods and doesn't let us down. When I first played this album I really wasn't sure about it, it took a few good hard listens to sink in. I loved the 2 (so far) singles "Behave" and "I Want You To Know" and the rest of the album is rather different. As another reviewer here said, the album is like a "broadening of the palette". Basically, if you're expecting "Grey Will Fade" Mk. II then you may be disappointed (at first) but don't fret. Charlotte's quirkiness and idiosyncracies are still intact, the music just gets to breathe more and there's a lot of space within. You literally do feel underwater for some tracks! The production is spot-on throughout and compliments the lyrical themes of the songs and Charlotte's playing (she truly is an unsung great, especially when it comes to Women In Rock - hate to use that phrase as a peg) and vocal arrangements manage to even surpass those of her first album. There are more songs on here than the first album, even a kind of intro in "Cousteau" (check the "Behave" single for the full-length version of it!), but there are also less spunky, Summer-Punk, almost Ash-like tracks compared to the first album. At first this put me off as I love nothing more than her tracks in the "Summer"/"Bastardo"/"Why You Wanna?"... vein but it's the slower, moodier tracks where she really gets to spread her wings and show you what she's capable of that impress most. Trust me, unlike anyone else with a guitar these days who's a bit alternative and gets acclaimed for simply being that way, Charlotte is different from those pretenders in that her music actually justifies the praise. Check it out! And whilst you're at it check out "Grey Will Fade" (if you haven't already).
