Count me among the fans who weren't overly thrilled with "Full Circle" (apart from "Faithless Love"). I've never been high on folk music, but I simply love Barbara Dickson's voice. This disc seems like a neat compromise, by using more pop songs (and pop-styled songs) in addition to traditional folk tunes. Then the arrangements are clever and richly layered, and Dickson's voice is still as powerful as ever. She is simply one of the best interpreters of songs around.

My favorite cuts include Charlie Dore's bittersweet "Disremember Me" and Dickson's own composition "Palm Sunday," which is absolutely gorgeous. The more traditional folk songs also work for a pop fan like me: "Dream Angus" is quite haunting, with backing vocalists used in a subtle fashion.

My rating would actually be 4 1/2 stars, but because we can't do halves, I'll give it the benefit. It is Barbara, after all.

Barbara Dickson continues to grow as an artist. Her passion for traditional music is once again evident here but this is nicely countered by a classic 60's track (The Byrd's "Goin Back"), an 80s song (Charlie Dore's "Disremember Me") and the timeless Charlie Chaplin ballad "Smile". However, it is the celtic material that draws out the best in Barbara's considerable vocal abilities. "The Water Is Wide" is a tale of woe and longing that is simply stunningly realised in Troy Donockley's beautiful arrangement. "Dream Angus" is another highlight, as is "Lady Franklin's Lament" with it's impressive choral backing. Having followed Barbara's career since the early 80's I consider her now to be at the very peak of her talent with an ability to vocalise a lyric better than most singers still active today. Although she might have shed the pop singer mantle some years back, her abiility to turn her hand to a wide variety of styles and sources mark her as a true class act. The standing ovations at her concerts say it all. One of our very finest artists both on CD and on stage.

This album is simply beautiful and is perhaps the finest offering of Barbara's long and distinguished career. She has always had a great voice but there is now a maturity and richness to it and her choice of songs on this CD is flawless.

The traditional music she has always loved is in evidence with delightful versions of 'The Lowlands of Holland' and 'Lady Franklin's Lament' (complete with stunning choral backing), but she also manages to effortlessly weave these alongside songs such as Goffin and King's 'Goin Back', 'The Water Is Wide', the classic 'Smile' and newer material such as Charlie Dore's 'Disremember Me' and it works perfectly with Troy Donockley's amazing arrangements.

It's a difficult CD to categorise but if you like the music of Clannad and singers such as Eva Cassidy I guarantee you will love this.

Barbara's latest album is a lovely collection of folk and pop songs. I've been a fan since the early eighties and always look forward to each new album. This album does not disappoint from the lovely 'Disremember Me' to the glorious self penned 'Palm Sunday'. To me 'Palm Sunday' is one of the loveliest songs that Baraba has ever recorded. It's a real bonus that she wrote it too. I sincerely hope that she writes more songs for her next collection. The album closes with a new version of Charlie Chaplin's classic 'Smile' which closes this lovely selection of songs nicely.

I really don't like folk music at all and thought that Barbara's last folk album "Full Circle" was unlistenable (to this fan at least) apart from one or two tracks......"Faithless love" anyone? As someone who grew up with Barbara's pop/easy listening output, I am frustrated that she no longer wishes to explore this outlet and has put that era behind her. I do think it's rather self indulgent when artists turn their back on the music that has turned them into the people they are today in order to make the music that they want.

Okay - rant over!

I absolutely love this album. Sure, there's some folk stuff on it, but it's been toned down from the previous folk album and is slightly more easy listening oriented. Some of the tracks considered to be folk songs are, in my humble opinion, among the best on the album ("The water is wide"). It's also great to hear Barbara is writing again. One of my favourite albums of hers is "Sweet Oasis" (please put it on CD!), on which she wrote a good proportion of the tracks. Her track here, jointly written with producer Troy Donockley is beautiful and "Palm Sunday" is on heavy rotation with the aforementioned favourite of mine. Her version of the Charlie Chaplin classic - a song that's been done to death if ever there was one - breathes new life into an old song and is a perfect finish to the album.

To anyone who misses the Barbara Dickson of old, she ain't coming back and we have to accept this. For someone who likes her voice and like me, isn't into folk music and is put off buying this because of that, think again. It's a beautiful album and one that's restored my faith in her.

This is a stunning album. Barbara Dickson at her very best. Creative, thoughtful, superbly sung and produced. A masterly weaving of traditional and contemporary songs, the latter including 'Palm Sunday' co- written by Barbara and producer, Troy Donockley.

Other highlights here are the glorious 'Dream Angus' 'The Witch of the Westmerlands' 'The Lowlands of Holland' and the 'Rigs o Rye' but every track is a creative gem and there's no doubt that Dickson is now at the height of her powers as a singer and musician.

It's sad. (but predictable) that a tiny minority of so-called 'fans' are determined to confine Barbara Dickson to the bland easy listening pop of the 1980s. She is - and always has been - too good to waste her talent and glorious voice on such banal stuff. Don't know when the Northern Ireland reviewer last saw Barbara Dickson live but here on the mainland the tours of the past few years have seen constant sold out halls and standing ovations.

if you want 'January February' style pop - buy one of the endless compilation CDs. However if you want an inspired collection of superb traditional and contemporary songs from one of the finest female singers Britain has ever produced - buy Time and Tide. You will love it!
