Heidi Talbot has added to her growing reputation with another fine recording. This is a more focussed album than In Love and Light (which had a number of styles running through) and is unashamedly folk from beginning to end. She possesses three main advantages; an unusual voice, excellent song selection, and she happens to be married to John MacCusker who is a superb record producer.

Her main forte seems to be wistful, low-key songs like "Hang Me" and the title track where she sounds not unlike Kate Rusby and Cara Dillon however the accent is different from Rusby and she doesn't make as much use of trills as Dillon. There are some fine up-tempo numbers to counter-balance these like "Sally Brown" and "Bleeker Street".

I would question her decision to do 2 Battlefield Band songs (MacCusker's former group) they're both brilliant (Shepherd Boy and Starting All Over) but she's asking for direct comparison wth Karine Polwart and even though Talbot has a better recorded sound I still prefer Polwart's singing.

"Willie Taylor" is a song with many alternative versions. This one leaves out the chorus but still works very well and is an ideal opener.I must admit to loving the second track "Tell Me Truly" which is a simple waltz with a catchy chorus that builds with extra voices and I can't help singing along myself.

There isn't a weak song on the album but for me she sings too many songs in the same range and style which can get a bit tiresome. Her voice hints at a husky or hoarse edge but sounds smoother on this recording than I've heard in her live shows. Also the albums closing two tracks are just too similar to what's gone before to leave any sort of wow factor.

See my other review for "Angels without wings" and this is pretty mch the same. Great vocals.... haven't tired of it after multiple plays.... listened to through a good pair of headphones is wicked - which tells you something about the quality of the production. Well recommnded - but I suggest you take in a live performance as well.

Maybe its not intended, but the sound and feeling on this is so muck like Kate Rusby , that it hurts.

Its pleasant enough, but not demanding, not original and I don't play it much.

To be honest, after playing it, I put on a Kate Rusby disc and she blows away the artificiality that Heidi Talbot provides on this CD...

While for me not quite as strong as the utterly perfect In Love And Light, still a great album with strong performances and Heidi' wonderful vocals.

Another pearl of genius from Heidi Talbot. This is a lovely CD very different to Angel without Wings. I am left wanting more.
