Stunning Irish singer, 4 Nov 2009
Having seen and been knocked out by Imelda May live in Brecon on 27th September 2009, I wanted to get all her recordings. "Love Tattoo" is mainly her own compositions, which are brilliant. Not only does she have a fabulous husky, sexy voice and a rock solid backing band, but she covers a wide range of styles through from blues and gospel to funk, rock-a-billy and punk. All the tracks are great, but "Falling in love with you again" is particularly haunting and memorable, and the title track is hard, driving rock. She has a refreshingly different image too, thankfully avoiding the barbie-doll look that is currently fashionable!
