The best thing since sliced Amy, 18 Mar 2010
I couldn't possibly be as eloquent as some of the previous reviewers, and I don't want to repeat anything, but...
...this record is simply superb. Heartbreaking - and uplifting - lyrics, fabulously inventive music played by real musicians. And, of course, Corinne's unique voice; both in her songwriting and her performance.
My favourite tracks? The more I hear it, the more join the list. I'd do it All Again is the obvious leader of the pack, as we've heard it and seen it performed, majestically, more than the others. Are You Here makes me cry as soon as it begins, and if you know Corinne's backstory - as most of us now do - it's impossible not to. Closer is just so funky and sexy. Diving for Pearls is as dramatic as you've ever heard her. And The Sea is simply sublime.
My favourite album of the past decade was Back in Black by Amy Winehouse. Not any more.
Welcome back, Mrs Rae. Keep on doing what you're doing.
