5.0 out of 5 stars Tracey on top, 22 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Out Of The Woods (Audio CD)
Fabulash. No missteps on Tracey's second solo cd (I still have a soft spot for A Distant Shore). There is an almost Sinead-like clarity and purity to the opening track, which superbly highlights Tracey's upper register. Similarly, the closing track reminds me a little bit of the soul precision of Annie Lennox's vox.

Grand Canyon will go down a treat in the clubs. To my mind, Easy should be lifted as the second single. Easy's soundscape is a lil bit Massive Attack, and I think Massive Attack lifts, as long as they are done right, are perfectly legit; check out Fundamental, the closer on All Saints latest album. The lead single took a lil while to grow on me - but once it did, I luved the 80s vibe. And the sly disco romp of Get Around To It is a treat.

Tracey's lyrics are intelligent and heartfelt - she is one of my fave lyricists; up there with Martin Gore (Depeche Mode), Aimee Mann, Jarvis Cocker.

To my mind, there is no filler on this album. And in a time of bloated long-players (that remind you why the prefix long is glued on) that's great stuff.
