5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and catchy, highly recommended, 1 Oct 2012
This review is from: King Con (Audio CD)
I must admit that I hadn't heard of Alex Winston until I looked her up after enjoying the music on the advert for Google Chrome. And I was very glad that I had bothered to listen to more. Very catchy songs, with quirky chord sequences and instrumentation. The vast majority of the songs on the album are upbeat and this is refreshing as so many albums have several dull and mushy album fillers. While there are a couple of weaker tracks, as on any album they are perfectly listeneable and may appeal more to others. Stand-out tracks include "Velvet Elvis", "Fire Ant", "Locomotive" and "Choice Notes". I suggest watching the video to "Velvet Elvis" also as this is quite entertaining if not quite bizarre and gives you a sense of her personality. All in all a great album and I can't wait to hear more from this artist!

5.0 out of 5 stars Something old and something new!, 9 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: King Con (Audio CD)
Rating reflects fact that I'm a Winston fan ... wouldn't pretend to be a "professional critic" from the BBC! Album covers both her "old hits" (starting from Choice Notes) through to her recent Velvet Elvis/Fire Ant releases. Also album numbers (with potential for some new hits). Album production reflects her commercial side (i.e. think "Choice Notes" popular version). Those who prefer her "acoustic moments" (i.e. live show material) will be disappointed. No remixes either. Otherwise, this gets a big "thumbs-up":->

5.0 out of 5 stars Different!, 4 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: King Con (Audio CD)
If you like off the wall music with a definite Japanese influence it is a brilliant sound. Really enjoyed it. First heard as music for adverts on TV and had to trace artist but well worth effort.

Great upbeat music with really good song writing. Fire Ant and Velvet Elvis are particularly good but there's a lot of other good songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing., 28 Mar 2012
This review is from: King Con (Audio CD)
This album is long awaited, and so worth it! It is so exciting, a definite summer album. All songs are very catchy and so joyous. The happy and light-hearted melodies are suprisingly contrasted by the haunting lyrical themes. So good, you would be idiotic not to buy it.
