really good album. we saw Angelique live in the Albert hall at the VSO anniversary concert in November. She was fantastic live and this album really captures her spirit. A great introduction if you have not listened to her before-you will be trawling the back catalogue!

I bought this for Lonlon, which has the tune of Ravel's Bolero. I put the CD into the auto-changer for our driving holiday across Europe. Some of the songs have an immediate "hook" and some take longer to appreciate. But after 2 or 3 cycles, none of the songs is a "skipper"!

I saw Angelique Kidjo at the VSO concert and immediately bought her CD. She's full of energy and can definitely get a party started. Originally from Benin and now living in France, you can hear the fusion of different musical styles. There are some stand-out tracks including Djin Djin and a vibrant version of Gimme Shelter. I just left one star off because I don't know her music well so don't have other CDs to compare this one to, but I think it's a corker!
