5.0 out of 5 stars She's good!
I bought this after seeing Sally on The Voice and have listened to it daily. She has a very haunting voice, which compels me to listen. Some of the songs I liked immediately; others have grown on me. I've never been a particular fan of folk music, but I'm definitely now a fan of Sally Barker.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great voice,weak material
Sally Barker has a heart wrenchingly beautiful voice, perhaps more suited to jazz than folk music; having said that, the music on this album is a thoughtful mix of folky, jazzy, mildly rocky crossover.Unfortunately,about half of the material is a bit weak and short of strong musical ideas. Exceptions are "Elephants " and "We Built Fires", which on their own are worth the...

4.0 out of 5 stars I liked Sally's voice but on first hearing I was unimpressed ...,
My wife Sue wanted this album for her birthday. She calls Sally magnificent and could listen to her all day regardless of the material. I liked Sally's voice but on first hearing I was unimpressed by some of the songs here. Then we listened again and I revised my opinion. Not every track is great but she has an undoubtedly affecting voice and uses it in a variety of styles. We both love the blues number Alexis Korner (Still Sings the Blues in Heaven), where Sally lets rip and combines gutsy power with her trademark sensitivity. I'd give it three stars because some of the songs are a little too soft-focus for me, but Sue would say five, so this is a compromise score. She's a genuine talent.

This review is from: Another Train (MP3 Download)
Exceptional vocals from "The Voice" runner-up can't wait for her to bring out another new album. Highly recommended to all lovers of good music.
5.0 out of 5 stars I just love Sally's voice,
I watched The Voice right from the start and was rooting for Sally from the moment I heard her sing. I was shouting at the telly for all the judges to turn-around and felt such relief when Tom did. If you have not yet listened to this lady sing - start now. Please please someone help Sally make a new album and also please do a full cover version of the Dear Darlin song; the emotion you put into the words is breath taking. I wish you all the best for the future and hope you finally get the recognition that you deserve. Just don't stop singing.
5.0 out of 5 stars Sally Barker,
How did Sally remain so hidden for so long. I really enjoyed this album - I do hope that she can be convinced to do another and include Dear darling etc from the Voice. I still think she should have won
5.0 out of 5 stars Not disappointed,

5.0 out of 5 stars Great voice,
Why has it this lady has a great voice & until The Voice on BBC I was not aware of her ,this album is outstanding from track one
Another Train through to the last track .
Hope its not long to she releases a new album
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely wonderful,
I am so very very happy I purchased this cd. If I hadn't seen this superb artist Sally Barker on The Voice tv programme, I probably would never have had the most extreme pleasure of hearing her haunting voice and playing this great cd over and over. I had to stop driving my car whilst playing this cd as track 4 reduced me to tears - it was so emotional. Anyone who has not bought this cd should do so immediately - to me it's the best cd I have ever purchased and I have several hundreds in my collection of vinyl and cd's. Thanks so much Sally Barker, you are a beautiful singer and I am extremely pleased you came back to the business after raising your boys. Also many thanks to Tom Jones for picking her to be on his team. Incidentally, I received the cd very quickly indeed after purchase. Thanks very much.
