4.0 out of 5 stars Memories of a fantastic voice and great tunes
I bought this album because it was one I owned cassette and I wanted it on CD. I'm sooo glad I did....Pauline Henry had some of the best vocals of the time and The Chimes cover version of U2's classic 'Still haven't found what I'm looking for' is one of the best covers ever!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Chimes
The Chimes have a sound very reminiscent of "Soul 2 Soul" from the same early 90's style of pop electronica.

There's plenty of soul radiating from this album. "Love So Tender" is as the title suggests, a tender peice of soul music. It has a little bit of 80's style synth behind the amazing vocals. This album also seems to capture the atmosphere...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, 9 Oct 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: The Chimes (Audio CD)
Few albums ever make it to such a high standard of melody, passion and production, but the Chimes created a piece of work that sits alongside the other Milestone Classics of the Nineties. My only question is, why on Earth hasn't Pauline Henry gone on to make more recordings? Surely British Music needs artists like her to restore some of the art back into music. The tracks on this album may not all be original, but you will find yourself rating these higher than the original ones! Whatever you do, add this to your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars a great track, but level is quite low, 12 Nov 2013
This review is from: The Chimes (MP3 Download)
I really like this extended track and was very pleased to find it on the Amazon website.

Amazon as they always are deliver perfectly every time. I am sure it is not their fault but my only disappointment was the level of the recording being a bit low.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Chimes, 12 Dec 2014
This review is from: The Chimes (Audio CD)
The Chimes have a sound very reminiscent of "Soul 2 Soul" from the same early 90's style of pop electronica.

There's plenty of soul radiating from this album. "Love So Tender" is as the title suggests, a tender peice of soul music. It has a little bit of 80's style synth behind the amazing vocals. This album also seems to capture the atmosphere and ambience of the timeline it was from. There's nothing ground breaking here, but it's easily listenable and a superb addition to the soulful electronica of it's pop culture era.
