This review is from: The Minutes (Audio CD)
I've been a fan of Alison Moyet's work since she hit it big with Yazoo and her solo work over the past (30 years?) can't be! Her voice has always been her spade in the game and when I saw the two video's for the new stuff and starting reading the buzz, I knew something special was brewing and sure enough "the minutes" arrives. I got to hear it all on Huffington and I was floored, not only are her vocals daring and modern, but the music rides along with each other like they were made for one another. Even though I've been through the whole 80's scene as a 20 something in the states, I always have my ear out for something that is able to bring back the feelings from that period yet sound up to date, and like no one else, not an easy feat. I'm so impressed with all these songs. Alison makes these tunes so memorable, each time I listen to them I find a nice touch, I really can't say anything bad about this collaboration, most likely the album of the year and comeback of the year, an outstanding music classic. My favorites is "Filigree", but they all offer something special, I think they could really do something special with "Right as rain", the haunting gothic like touches on the closer "Rung by the tide" and the first single "When I was your girl" and also "Changeling" sound great with all these mixes. musical bliss ALISON MOYET!!!
