5.0 out of 5 stars Utter Class for ALL tastes and ages., 8 Oct 2002
This review is from: A Little Deeper (Audio CD)
I am a 30something white middle class intellectual. Garage and soul are anathemas for me. It has become a prejudice, because these almost exclusively black genres have never had anything to offer me. Things change and this release has changed me. She positively blasts her message out in ten feet high capital letters of burning flame - make sure you have nothing perched on the edge of a shelf when you play this (not a joke). I do not know how she has produced that bass sound - it is genuinely scary and virtually siesmic. But it emphasises what she has to say. And what she has to say all needs saying. Her songs have a parable quality to them in their lyrical content, mainly with a positive message to be your own person for yourself and not become a stereotype, or be pressured into nasty situations. It is a good message, and where it is clearly aimed at a young and probably black audience, there are many non-young non-black people who need to be listening. For those of us who grew up in the eighties the treat is Afraid to Fly, mixed and produced in collaboration with the Art of Noise (who? I hear anyone under 25 asking) and for me this is the highlight of the album, in fact, the best thing I have heard this millennium. Superlatives are overused by music reviewers and the like hence they lose some of their meaning, but Ms D is the most awesome new talent to hit music in the UK since... pass, er, Kate Bush perhaps? I think there is every chance that Ms D will become the UK's biggest star yet. Here's hoping...
