stuff of dreams
on 16 June 2004
An amazing collection of Gabrielle's hits over the years, it seems Dreams truly can come true for the Hackney-born artist who has had her fair share of troubles in her life. Since her #1 debut with Dreams, she has continued to release meaningful music that appeals to the masses. Her covers include Dionne Warwick's 'Walk On By' and Jodeci's 'If You Ever' with East 17. Also on this album is one of my favourite releases by her, 'Give Me A Little More Time' and other amazing tracks like 'Forget About The World', 'Sunshine', the uplifting 'Rise' (which samples Bob Dylans' Knocking on Heavens Door and comes with his own seal of approval!) and 'When A Woman'.
Of course, the album wouldn't be complete without including the tear-jerkers, 'Should I Stay' and 'Out of Reach'. Reflective and touching, Gabrielle's ballads reach the hearts of her adoring fans because they are so personal and many of her listeners can relate to them.
An overall exellent album. A must buy.
