4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect pop/ dance album for the summer, 13 July 2011
This review is from: Make A Scene (Audio CD)
Last summer i couldnt get enough of Kylie's Aphrodite which was crammed full of killer tunes. Well this year, it seems Sophie Ellis Bextor's long awaited fourth album will fill that void this summer.

Long delayed, poorly promoted and singles that should have charted better if more had taken notice of them- all this has worked against this album being as big a hit as it should be.

Whereas Lady Gaga produces some great singles and some not so good ones and frankly poor and overrated albums, Sophie is the full package- great singles and a great album.

It is clearly evident that this album has had a lot of time and energy gone into it... it's a shame she hasnt made a bigger splash with it. There isnt a duff track among the 14 set.

My highlights-
Not Giving Up On Love- such a great song, short, snappy, but very instant, sticks in your head- should have been bigger last year

Starlight and Straight To The Heart- two very laid back, chill out tracks, i especially love the darker edge to Straight To The Heart

Off and On- may be a Roisin Murphy reject, but it is another great song with single potential

Homewrecker- love this song, very catchy

Bittersweet and Heartbreak - both may be quite old now but they are still fantastic songs... some of her best work...

Without doubt this album is Sophie's finest hour to date... she has immersed herself in dance music this time, she knows what works and sticks with it, this means the album is very cohesive and sits well as a collection of songs rather than some singles with filler around them.

People, dance music fans in particular, dont know what they are missing !
