4.0 out of 5 stars A Criminally under-appreciated talent, 16 Oct 2009
This review is from: Pot of Gold (Dig) (Audio CD)
As others have said, why Alice Russell isn't up there with the Winehouses and Duffy's of this world is beyond comprehension. Those two couldn't even lace her boots when it comes to the voice. Oh, that voice! The most soulful, evocative sound ever to come from a set of pipes! Actually, I've just remembered how I described her to a friend who was only into whatever gets played on the radio. I said the only comparison I could think of that they would have heard of was Joss Stone. But good. And not annoying. Or with a fake American accent. And with a "real" band behind her.

This album is definitely a "must have", especially since it's got that whole funk and soul vibe about it that was perhaps missing on My Favourite Letters. The production by TM Juke is brilliant, really showcases Alice's voice well. If you're a fan of The New Mastersounds, Quantic Soul Orchestra, etc then you will loe this album (and I mean love). If only the record buying public looked behind the image and actually at the talent, then maybe Alice Russell would get the recognition she deserves. Who knows, maybe people will finally get on board with this one.
