£11 is transient, beauty is eternal,
By A Customer
This review is from: SINGS THE SONGS OF ROBERT BURNS (Audio CD)I hesitated about buying this album. I was thinking 'oooh, will I like it? Will it be a waste of £11?'. I was being a bit stupid really, cause I've always like Eddi's voice & material. Nearly everything I hear her sing is great. She could even bring out an album entitled 'Eddi Reader Sings The First Five Pages Of The Glasgow Telephone Directory' and I'd still love it.
But this is special. It's one of those all-time classic albums where u know everything has come together perfectly. It's more than just the musicianship. It's the enthusiasm, the inspiration, the *vibe*. This album will lift you up, chill you out, make you cry, make you smile. It conjures up everything that you'd want a poem, a song, or piece of music to. I'm so glad that I didn't hesitate too long - neither should you.
