4.0 out of 5 stars ...an out and out winner..., 9 July 2009
This review is from: Pot of Gold (Dig) (Audio CD)
It really is a hit and miss thing, this success malarkey. After all, why should squeaky Duffy and bland Adele get hyped up and invited to all the swish shindigs. Fair enough, Duffy had one good tune, but there's more life, verve and passion in these five tracks than in both other lassies albums put together.

Ms Russell has a voice that is instantly memorable, leaping out of the speakers, equal parts smooth and gritty. Chuck in a handful of really, really good songs, and this should be an out and out winner.

For sure, the arrangements are mining the same sixties soul scene as many others, but there's a loose, jazzy feel that brings to mind the best work of the Average White Band. Check out songs like 'Living The Life Of A Dreamer' and her cover of Gnarls Barkleys 'Crazy'. I defy you not to be converted to her cause.
