Built To Last,
This review is from: Love Songs: A Time You May Embrace (Audio CD)
Krystle Warren is a rare creature; a singer/songwriter unafraid to stand
well outside the shadow of ephemeral passing trends. A consummate musician
with a voice which can stir your spirit and melt your heart. 'Love Songs :
A Time You May Embrace' is her second solo album and a mile and a half
further forward in terms of development than her 2009 debut 'Circles'.
The twelve compositions in this collection are uniformly wonderful, especially
given the relatively short period within which they were recorded. Working to
a tight deadline has clearly added a sense of immediacy to their realisation.
Ms Warren's rich, elastic voice is a classy and affecting instrument. Her
lower register is especially impressive but she is not afraid to explore
above the stave to fine effect. (A rendition of Kate McGarrigle's 'I Don't Know'
witnessed at Rufus Wainwright's recent London Lyceum concert was utterly
mesmerising). A voice to rank with the very best in the listening world.
Stylistically the songs run the gamut from jaunty New Orleans blues ('Five
Minutes Late'), through shadowy country territory ('I Worry Less') and sixties-
flavoured balladry ('Forever Is A Long Time'), to neo-classical whimsy (the
delightful 'The Clod and The Pebble, whose limber strings and dreamy harmonies
frame one of the album's retrained highlights). With the gorgeous 'Every Morning',
however, she digs down deep into her soul. When she sings "I love you" we can feel
that she means it with every fibre of her being. A song so tender I almost wept!
Ms Warren and her music are indubitably built to last.

Thanks for pointing out the silly error.
Too much Burgundy on the evening in question methinks!
