Hold on to the beautiful Knight,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 100% (Audio CD)
Beverley Knight has for a long time, in my opinion, been the best female soul singer we have in this country. 100% goes to prove that that assertion can justifyingly be made.
The first single, "Beautiful Night" was an instant hit for me. As soon as I heard it on the radio I knew it was her and I knew that that I had to get my hands on the new album.
In my opinion, Knight's best work is often the ballady type songs - they are always packed with emotion and they very often speak to me, putting lyrics and music to feelings / thoughts that I have often had myself. "Bare" is one of the most fantastic song on this offering. It perfectly showcases her voice; the range, depth and force of it. My other personal favourites include, "100%", "Soul Survivor", "Turned to Stone", "Square Peg", "Gold Chain", "Moneyback" and "Too Much Heaven".
Beverley is an amazing artist. Just goes to show that it's not only the Americans who can produce brilliant soul singers.
