5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem, 10 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: That Girl (Audio CD)
A friend introduced me to this album a few weeks ago, and finally I got round to buying it myself. I'm a big fan of female vocalists, especially those with a unique voice or something a bit different to say; a quick trawl through my music shelves reveals everyone from the likes of the more well-known such as Annie Lennox, Alison Moyet and Suzanne Vega, through to the less obvious / commercial Beth Orton, Fiona Apple, the gorgeous and hugely talented Thea Gilmore, Nina Gordon, Nerina Pallot, and the simply wonderful Imogen Heap. In Stephanie Kirkham I've just found another all-time favourite artiste to add to that list.

Reminding me of a sort-of cross between Lisa Loeb and the amazing Alice Martineau (if you haven't bought her album Daydreams yet, what are you waiting for?), Stephanie puts her vocals to perfect use on all 10 songs on this CD. At times soothing and caressing, at others innocent-sounding, almost childlike, it's soooo easy to fall in love with her.

Every track is a gem, from the boppy, upbeat "Garden of Dreams" to the dreamy sounds and harshly-dismissive lyrics of the following track "Somebody Else's Girl", one of my personal favourites. For me however, the single "Inappropriate" is an absolute stand-out example of songwriting and perfect execution. I just CANNOT get this song out of my head. Checking the play count for this album in iTunes, the other 9 tracks show 5 plays each. "Inappropriate" - 28 plays! And that's in the last 24 hours since the CD dropped through my letterbox.... I hummed it all the way through my lunch break, much to the annoyance of my colleagues who couldn't hear the music in my head!

Do yourselves a favour and buy this album, it's worth every penny
