Heading for greatness,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Devil in Me (Audio CD)
I rarely write reviews, but when something classy or classic comes along, I just have to have my say. This album grows and grows on you. I urge you to risk it and give it a go. There is a natural gift for melody and arrangement here, reminiscent of the great singer-songwriters of the seventies, but with a more avant-garde approach. The title track will strike most people immediately, but strong contenders (and personal favourites) are Find Me a Home, Songbird and Villain Hands. Also very strong are Sky is Falling and Old Rock. Some of the lyrics are a little naiive, with their shock value, but this young lady will mature and you can bet that her best is yet to come. She is here for the long haul. Look out for her cover of At Last by Etta James - dare I suggest it's as good, if not better, than the original? I predict that her second album will sell better and be nominated for awards (Mercury Prize would be good) and then this album will be revisited and sell well too. A slow burn is good.
