I have to nail my colours to the mast quickly and have done so in the 'title'!
This yet another superb album from TD - some old, some new etc but all to the standard we have come to expect of her now.
The frightening things is that she is even better live so anyone lucky enugh to have her appearing close to them in her 2011 tour do yourself a massive favour and get along - even I am considering travelling to Manchester or Birmingham to catch her.
Her voice continues to glide effortlessly through the 2 discs and to give the impression of it all coming so naturally to her - I am sure it is not the case but it just seems that way.
For any TD fan - buy it.
For any non TD fan - try it

My Tina Dickow fascination started back in 2008, where I bought the box "A Beginning, A Detour, An Open Ending". And I was hooked instantly. Her great voice and big talent for writing songs that touches you deep within is sublime. Then I got "The Road to Gävle" and now "Welcome Back Colour" (WBC), considering to buy the other albums too... I know they're without a doubt good. This album consists of two cd's - "Up" and "Down", where the tempo goes up and down, there's older and new songs, but all new-recorded. And it's nice to hear her moving a bit away from all the melancholy and getting a bit more rocked :) I love both styles.
I attended a concert resently on the "WBC"-tour and what a great experience - if you like her, you should definitely go too ;)

This is an excellent compilation and a perfect entry for those new to Tina's work. I'm a huge fan with several albums and have seen her perform live (which I can 100% recommend). Friends that I've introduced her music to, sometimes find her a little meloncholy, and the second CD here might fall into that category. However, I find her music constantly uplifting, and so in tune to my mood state at so many times as to be spooky. She has a beautiful voice, and shows a genuine closeness to her fans which is rare. She has a fantastic knack of capturing so many different times in my life in her songs. Her lyrics are moving and real. Buy this album and I guarantee you will be hooked.
