Good but she can try too hard
on 2 December 2000
When I first listened to this record, and even listening to it now, the songs that sound out are the little numbers where Angie is singing with little or no music to back her up (Black Diamonds and Blue Pearls, and a little song at the end of My Lovin' Will Give You Something). In these songs she sounds genuine and soulful.
In contrast songs such as Coulda Been You, Visions and My Lovin' Will Give You Something aren't as good, more mechanical than soulful, which is the problem with this record and (though not immediately) become really offputting.
She does make up for it though with some other great tracks which show her great potential - Everyday, No MoreRain (In this Cloud), Green Grass Vapours and Baby Slow Down
This isn't a bad album, far from it, but in with Black Diamond it's a case of when it's good it's VERY good and when it's bad it's awful
