2.0 out of 5 stars Very dissappointing, 17 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Secret Symphony (MP3 Download)
We all know that Katie Melua has an excellent voice, but what matters most of all are the type of tunes she sings.

After seeing her in concert last year in Sheffield - she was superb (despite a dulled lifeless audience), - and after the brilliant "House" album the next was eagerly anticipated.

Sorry to say this collection is a step backwards in her career. After "House" I thought she was starting on a new and exciting musical adventure, but I was mistaken.

There is a lack of breadth of variety of songs, changes in melody and the range over which her voice is applied. It is all quite bland and safe. Yes boring. The disappointment increased with every passing song.

Please, Katie, leave Mike Batt in the past and move on to something more challenging then this, your least effective album release to date.

I suggest this album has been released due to commercial considerations being placed above quality control.
