Saw her at the Snow Patrol concert at the O2 and she was stunning, brought this album on the back of that and sorry apart from track 8 this is a over produced instantly forgettable album where all of Lissie's raw talant is washed away. I am hoping her new album fares better as she has a gorgeous strong vocal range but its on the missing list here.

I bought the cd for a friend's birthday, so I'm sure it will be fine. My low marking is due to the fact the cd box came with a big crack down the front! And as I didn't have time to return for a replacement I had to put it in one of my own cd cases. The packaging isn't too bad so it makes me wonder if it was sent out this way? Either way when it's bought as a gift, it's frustrating when it arrives damaged.

saw Lissie on Tv a few days ago and she sang Mississippi with all feeling, as if her life depended on it - it was great but this CD made a couple of years ago has no spirit at all and it is mostly dull.

Jeez! I'm flabbergasted at the sheer brilliance of Lissie. I've just seen her live at the Glee Club in Birmingham and she and her band astounded and spellbinded and just dragged bluesy-folky-alterno-rocky-souly music slap, bang into the present. She's completely her own person. Her own, humble, almost diffident self. Refreshingly un-diva-like. A regular kinda gal with Mississippi mud permanently wedged deep in her fingernails and soul... Her songwriting is wonderfully free of cliche and cod-portentousness like so many of her over-hyped and under-talented contemporaries. Many of whom have ridiculous levels of critical and public adulation. Lissie, on the other hand, wipes the floor with all of them! She's nothing less than the voice of a generation and of a particular geography. She's as essential and important an artist as Regina Spektor. They both share a fierce intelligence and great songcraft. Regina is, obviously, madder. And her stunning, baffling compositions reflect this greater madness. Lissie is, arguably, more sincere. She's certainly less self-consciously quirky. But her simpler songs have an elemental power that is all her own. I love all the songs on this genre-defying album in their own way. But I'm sent into spirals of quasi-religious ecstasy by the "won't you fill me up with it..." mini-mantra in the middle of Record Collector that reminds me of the similar ecstasy that the goddess chant in Inkubus Sukkubus's Wytches sends me into.
Nevermind the religious epiphanies... just check out her versions of (improvements on) Metallica's Nothing Else Matters and Lady GaGa's Bad Romance on youtube. Sadly omitted from this album, they prove just how unbelievably versatile Lissie really is - best album of 2010. (Possibly first equal with Dommin... I'm not sure yet...)

After hearing the mesmerising 'Everwhere I Go' on I checked out Lissie's other songs. I also saw her live in a tiny venue in London in February 2010. Quite simply, she's an amazing talent. Her voice, with a huge likeness to Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac, is so powerful and bluesey, and her sheer energy on stage has me hooked. 'In Sleep' reveals some decent guitar skills and 'Record Collector' steadily builds to a fantastic ending... I love this album, and urge you to check it out, and check Lissie out live, her band are equally as talented and can really rock... A real talent, and one to watch in 2010 and onwards. Buy this album!!

This could have come straight out of the 70s, a lost cousin to Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, all folk rock and power ballads. And yet when the songwriting is as good as this, when the music is played with such conviction you can't help loving it however derivative it might sound. Lissie is a real talent who delivers every lyric with her heart and soul. Her next album "Back to Forever" is even better.

I hadn't heard of this artist till I done a music survey. I liked what I heard so I bought this CD, and was not dissappointed.
Thinking Lissie was a new artist, I was suprised to see Amazon had more of her music. I will be buying.
Delivery was very quick First class all round.

saw her on a you tubevid while just looking around, liked what I heard and brought this album. Wow I was totally amazed a great voice she should be a star, up there with Stevie Nicks my all time female star. Will certainly be buying more of her albums.

I kept hearing the song 'when I'm alone' on Radio 2, but Steve Wright didn't say who it was until yesterday!
I downloaded the album from Amazon that same day without hearing anything else, which is something I very rearly do as I am very fussy where music is concerned. I'm pleased to say I'm glad I took the risk! This is a great album, it's so refreshing to here someone like this, with a great voice and song writing skill who is not following the same template as most artists these days.

There's a mix of styles here, Folk, Rock, Blues and Pop, and it's all good! I'm only on my second listen and I love it already, which is another rare thing for me, as it usually takes a while for something to catch.

If you are a fan of Female vocalists but fed up with Gaga, Rhianna, etc, etc.. This could be for you.

I very rarely feel the need to write reviews of music I buy, but this girl is just so amazingly talented that I felt the need! I first heard Lissie's song "In Sleep" some months back now, and was totally hooked by her voice and lyrics. I looked her up on youtube, and came across her version of "Bad Romance" (I can't stand Lady Gaga) which is possibly one of the best performances you are ever likely to see, and from that moment on I have become increasingly spell bound by this beautifully raw amazingly talented girl. Songs like "Here Before" and the haunting "Everywhere I go" show she has been through some tough stuff, but she is just so still totally her own woman, and you feel like you know her after listening to her music as it's just so honest and you just know she puts every inch of her soul into the songs. I honestly cannot rate this girl high enough, she fully deserves all her success, but I just hope it doesn't change her or her music, because at present they are both simply hauntingly perfect.

My only slight gripe is that the recordings of some of the songs on the album are slightly inferior to the live versions on YT (if you haven't yet watched any then you simply must).
