This is truly an amazing piece of work.
on 28 April 2000
In a time when pop music is written by thousands of artists and producers and sung by swimsuit wearing cheerleaders, this album comes as a releif. Recorded from original demo's in her home studio 'the tugboat palace'and produced by Annie Lennox masermind Steven Lipson, every song is a shining individual masterpeice of pop professionalism. Sophie's Percussion roots shine through and on many of the songs there is an air of 1920' france glimpsing through and shooting the music off at angles never thought possible. Look out for 'Mr Tugboat Hello', a song which starts off with a camp minimalist piano feel and ends up as a huge celebratory feeling instrumental, with chugging guitars and sounding horns giving the feel of a post war ship coming into harbour for one last time. Amazing.
