5.0 out of 5 stars High Flying Kite, 19 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Kite (Audio CD)
This is one of my favourite albums of all time and I do not know quite where to begin in describing it. Firstly, Kirsty's voice is one of the most original and beautiful voices you'll ever hear. In the darkest times I walk in the night and play this CD and it makes me feel very tearful yet that a close friend is with me. The opener 'Innocence' is a strong tirade against male chauvinism and is striding and grand. Listening to 'Free World' feels as if you are on a motorbike riding through tunnels of lights....it's hard to describe but when you hear it you'll know what I mean. The lyrics of this song, I suppose are against Thatcher but in this age thay could be equally against blair. 'Mother's Ruin' is an ode to hope from a dark situation; 'leave a light on and don't shut the door' a moving closing line. 'Days' has always sounded to me like a prayer but a spiritual one rather than religious. 'No Victims' is a tirade against love rats and I feel is one of the greatest white soul records ever made.

In this celebrity culture the lyrics of 'Fifteen Minutes'; 'Then there's always the fame, autographs now and again' is staggeringly significant and 'Don't Come The Cowboy With Me Sonny Jim' is a very special song about a guy trying to be like the gang but he can't change because there's 'a light in his eyes' that tells us 'there's somebody in'.

The closer 'You and Me Baby' is Kirsty at her most intimate. It's you and her at the end of the world holding hands to walk the final mile.

Do forgive me..I've run out of words..This album is staggering. Nothing else comes near it. Absolutely nothing.
