5.0 out of 5 stars A best kept secret that deserves success, 21 July 2007

All but a re-issue of 2004's debut album simply entitled 'Fried' (2 songs have been dropped and 3 new one's have been added). Fried are one of my best kept musical secrets that deserve greater success. Forget plastic R&B, this is classic southern soul with a twist for those that appreciate great singers and great musicianship. My favourite tracks are still Thing's Change, You're With The Wrong One, Love Is A Stranger and stunning new single I'll Be There will hopefully bring Fried to a greater audience. Jonte Short has a voice that is uniquely her own but is up there with the greats. I've a feeling that one of my best kept secrets won't be for much longer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Soul Music, 15 Nov 2010

This review is from: Things Change (Audio CD)
After being lent the first album I feel in love with Fried.

This album as has been suggested is more or less a re-issue. However when you listen to each track side by side you can tell that there have been a few tweeks and turns of a few knobs as this sounds like a much more polished production, if you want a more raw sound go for the first album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A voice to die for, 13 Dec 2007

Let's face it, it's all about the singer, isn't it?

If your band has a mediocre singer, then the songs have to work so much harder. Fried are one lucky twosome. Not only do they have a great songwriter, but they are blessed with one of the most distinctive and amazing voices I've heard in a long while.

Sounding like a cross between (I kid you not) Skye from Morcheeba, Macy Gray, Aretha Franklin, this is one of the most fantastic albums of the year.

As always with releases like this, it didn't quite get the airplay and backing it deserved. However, if you love the likes of Angie Stone, Leela James or the other singers mentioned, then check this out. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Do you love southern country soul, can you feel a tingle in your spine when Otis Redding sings? Are you sad no one is recording soul? Then get this record. One of finest soul records of the last 10 years. You will not regret it.
