4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return, 5 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Miss Little Havana (Audio CD)
Only found out about this new album release when on holiday in Miami, where Gloria was interviewed in a local magazine. On return, I ordered it but was surprised it was practically only on import!! Why hasn't this release got more coverage? It's a great return to form, with a little help from Pharell, but still sounding very much like Gloria. Some retro sounds mixed with very modern production, blending with traditional latin musicianship to make a very modern miami-cuban sound. Welcome back Gloria!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Alison!, 26 Nov. 2009
Buy the Deluxe Version!!
This is a real gem of a collection, comprehensive in that it includes tracks from the more recent albums, which are simply superb (Hometime, Voice, The Turn), rich in lyric and melody with outstanding vocals, as well as the usual hits from days gone by, but also has a number of re-worked Yazoo numbers and album tracks which really showcase Alison's diverse range and style.
A must-buy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quelle Surprise!, 25 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Voila (Audio CD)
I'm not sure what was more surprising - Belinda suddenly releasing a new album after 10 years of very little solo song-making, or the fact that when she does, it's all in French! I wasn't convinced she'd pull this one off, especially when tackling some almost-sacred French songs by some of the greats - like Gainsbourg, Piaf and Aznavour - but I've been very pleasantly surprised. OK, the French accent isn't always perfect and the imagery is pretty cliched, but the album's got a great sound, Belinda's voice is strong (and at times pretty sultry), and the arrangements are quite original, making for an interesting listening experience. This is a must for any fan, and most will actually really enjoy it! Welcome back Belinda - can't wait for the tour!
