5.0 out of 5 stars
Dazzling Debut, 24 Jun 2003
After buying Sophie's single, U Girl, and seeing her perform at a gig in Cambridge, I just had to buy this album. I was lucky enough to borrow a pre-release copy for a few days, and I tell you, IT ROCKS! A bit like Dido, but punchier. A little bit like Texas, but all its own sound too. It's one of those albums which grows on you, with enough variety that you can listen to the whole thing at one sitting. The lyrics are all cleverly written, and the words are all printed out so you can sing along!
In terms of the tracks, in addition to U Girl (1), I also very much liked like Smile (3), Round and Round (10), Never Forget (11) and I haven't found a loud enough stereo to get the best of Down the Drain (4). This girl is a formidable talent and I can't wait for the postman to bring me my own copy. If Sophie Agapios doesn't make it to the top, I'll eat my CD player! So come on everyone out there, support your home-grown talent and buy one now!!!
