3.0 out of 5 stars Patchy and lyrically awkward, 29 Aug 2009
This review is from: Breakfast on the morning tram (Audio CD)
I am a great fan of SK and have been to gigs in Glasgow, Perth and London where she and her band have never failed to disappoint. However, she disappoints here. I have had the album since it was released and have delayed reviewing it because i thought over time that i would warm to it more and whilst that is what has happened to an extent, i still feel that it is a below par effort. The new songs are lyrically awkward - the words don't flow well. The melodies seem forced and a bit contrived. I can understand why she would want to move away from a strictly american songbook approach and be viewed as less MOR and more in line with people like Abbey Lincoln and Cassandra Wilson but it hasn't entirely worked this time around. I doubt if it will win her any new fans and i suspect it will not be up there among the favourite albums of her existing fans.
