Format: Audio CD
I've been a massive admirer of Paul Heaton's music for many years, a love affair that started in 1989 when The Beautiful South released their début album and, from that, I went backward to the excellent Housemartins and followed his career ever since. Although I love the vast majority of The Beautiful South's output, the Jacqui Abbott era has always been my favourite. Not just because of the massive “Blue Is The Colour” with the sleepy sing-along “Rotterdam” and the cheeky “Don't Marry Her”, but follow-ups “Quench” and, especially, the massively underrated “Painting It Red” made for a superb run of albums, each featuring some of Paul Heaton's finest songs; they were the collective sound of a band that had hit their creative peak. Their material before (especially) and after was still a little bit special, but Jacqui's soulful, emotive vocals added something that Briana Corrigan (always a little too twee for my liking) and Alison Wheeler (not enough character after someone like Jacqui) just didn't give to The Beautiful South. After Paul decided that he'd had enough of being part of the band (citing “musical similarities”) and wanted to spread his solo wings with generally good, but still mixed results, this re-pairing with Ms. Abbott, who left music to look after her autistic son, is like a Beautiful South fan's wet dream. Of course, that's if this album is any good.

So, is it? Oh my word, yes. Better than any fan could have hoped, dreamed or imagined from such a reunion project. If anything, “What We Have Become” is, without hyperbole, the best album that Heaton has ever been involved with and, given his back catalogue, I'm well aware of what a bold claim that is.

The best album I have purchased for a long while, Housemartins, Beautiful South, this pair are much better, what Have we become is a stunning track, typical Heaton and what have they become, possibly better than any other duet couple I can think of much better than sonny & Cher, or frank and nancy and even John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John. after the pathetic attempts at Eurovision maybe this pair would walk it.cannot wait to see them together in Hull at end of month.so many tracks all good no doubt that Jacquis voice makes the album and with Pauls stunning lyrics and music it cannot fail.

Loving every song on the album. Jacqui Abbot has a fabulous voice, the recent tour show in Glasgow was really good too. A must for any Beautiful South fans.

Great to see Paul and Jacqui back together. This is reminiscent of The Beautiful South and their catchy tunes from years ago. Feel-good, quality music.

Great hear the core of the Beautiful South again, Jaques voice is still very distinctive, would say it as improved with the passing of the years
