5.0 out of 5 stars Go Emma
Wow... Emma is definitly a great singer and very talented girl. By it, because is one of the best albuns from 2001.
1. 'What Took You So Long?' - Everything in the place. Just great for first single. (9/10)
2. 'Take My Breath Away' - a little bit girly, but really fantastic and Emma shows that she has a great voice(9/10)
3. 'A World Without You' -...

2.0 out of 5 stars On the right road but not yet at the success junction
First off, the covers. "What I Am" was a one-off for Edie Brickell back in '89 and was a choice cut for revival. The TTO crew did an astoundingly competent cover; so competent that you could mute the video and listen to the original and lip-sync the two without any effort...
"Sunshine On A Rainy Day" was Zoe's one moment in the sun, and as others...

2.0 out of 5 stars Weakest Spice, 1 Feb 2005
Mr. J. P. Fry "jonathanshiver" (Bournemouth) - See all my reviews
This review is from: A Girl Like Me (Audio CD)
This album, released at roughly the same time as the superbly edgy Spice Girls' swansong effort Forever, makes a good start for Emma, with the eminent 'What Took You So Long' and breezy 'Take My Breath Away' showcasing her sweet voice.
Unfortunately, the rest of the album is not up to scratch. After the strong pilot tracks comes a disappointingly saccharine-weak array of album-filler tracks, including a forgettable cover of 'Sunshine on a Rainy Day.' The only other strong track is the sharp, modern Forever-style 'Been There, Done That' which has the addictive quality of a Darkchild production, though penned by British writers.
The only other exception is Tin Tin Out's memorable 'What I Am.'
The songs aren't bad exactly, but they all carry the kind of empty pop sound that screams RUSHED at you; maybe with a little more time and more ingenuity and meaning, this album would have been better, but the third single release (We're Not Gonna Sleep Tonight) failed badly, reaching only number 25.
Emma's new material (Free Me) shows a new direction and has flair and distinctiveness, but this was a disappointingly forgettable effort.
