Skye, like any artist worth the title, has moved on and tried something quite different with this third album. The striking cover design provides a clue. There is a decidedly retro electronic feel, reminiscent of the classier end of the electro-pop trend of the 80s and 90s. Many of the tracks are lighter, frothier, more up-beat than most of her previous solo offerings. However, if you loved the spine-tingling drama of 'Keeping Secrets' and the heartfelt intimacy of 'Mind How You Go', do not be discouraged: This is no throw-away, plastic pop album. There are depths here, too. The supreme quality of song-writing and execution we have come to expect from Skye is undiminished and the range, versatility and mesmeric lustre of her vocals are as captivating as ever. At least as important as all of that, this album also achieves the rare feat of runniing a common and consistent vibe through a truly eclectic selection of songs.
I love Skye's work with Morcheeba but, for me, her solo albums and performances are the outstanding achievements of her career and, as Back to Now has affirmed, are unfaltering in their richness and beauty.

Once again she Shines! I have been waiting for Skye's latest release with bated breath for several months. It certainly does not disappoint. It is more up-beat and electronic than her last album, a different sound. She is so versatile, and her sound is unique - chocolate velvet or warm honey come to mind when listening to her voice. I especially Love the first track 'Troubled Heart' which has an unusual Amerindian sound at the outset, and of course her beautiful 'Featherlight'. As far as I am concerned Skye is Supreme as a solo artist, even better than she is as lead singer with Morcheeba. Although 'Blood Like Lemonade' is my favourite group album ever.

Skye's voice was the main attraction to listen to Morcheeba. When I discovered that she had been replaced, following her wishing to follow a solo path (for a while) i was disapointed but had my interest peeked to at least give her successor a listen. They both brought something to Morcheemba but I preferred Skye's voice somehow as it was calming on a journey by car.

This is one of her solo 'albums and is very good too for the same sound shme brings to the table that she did whilst working within the group.

I can throughly recommend this CD.

If Morcheeba and Goldfrapp were to produce a love child album, this would be it. More electro-pop than Skye's previous offering I really enjoyed this. Nothing quite hits the heights of Goldfraapp at their very best or indeed Morcheeba (with Skye) at their best but a number of tracks would happily grace albums from either of these two. Probbaly over-used as a description but Skye's voice is delicious, at times as smoothh as melted chocolate, at others with the lift of a champagne cocktail.

Got them all, and this has got to be one of the best. More upbeat than previous but still the same smooth tunes. Love it, love it, love it! Played it for the last 24 hours since it arrived in the post. You will not be disappointed.
