This review is from: Starlight (Audio CD)
I have enjoyed Joan Armatrading's music since she launched her career in the 70s. Her style has been consistent but she has always managed to come up with new, fresh ideas. Each album is quite unique and this one is no exception. The amazing thing is that Joan plays all the instruments as well as all the vocals. She must have been very busy. Having seen her live and even met her, I can say that her music is so exciting and whether it be live or recorded there is a vibrancy and feeling in her music. This album is quite different to her previous album, more of a 'blues' feel to it. Lots of great lyrics and cleverly constructed songs makes this a must for any JA fan. The title track 'Starlight' is lovely. I was very fortunate to have heard the songs off this album performed live so beautifully the day before the album was released, it is a great album, the album arrived dutifully on the day of release.
