As others have said, why Alice Russell isn't up there with the Winehouses and Duffy's of this world is beyond comprehension. Those two couldn't even lace her boots when it comes to the voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just amazing...., 1 April 2006
Bought this album a while ago before all the JCB hype kicked off and I have to say that it's one of teh best albums I've ever heard. Jcb (nice as it is) is actually one of the weaker songs. The ones to look out for are "Freedom", "Girls" (out April 3rd), and "Fine Story". Basically a superb journey into acoustic folk via hip hop, I can assure you that you'll never had heard anything quite like this before. Hopefully they can follow up the success of JCB when Girls is released, as it's a much stronger song.
