Blue Nile's hyperactive girlfriend?,
This review is from: Ellipse (Audio CD)
Somewhat disillusioned with the current crop of female 'mockney' vocalists with their gobby posturing and regurgitated pop?
Imogen Heap is a bit of solace. I am a late discoverer, but upon listening to this album I was immediately struck by how uniquely intelligent some of her songs are. She often eschews the 'obvious' resolution in her melody lines, leaving the listener intrigued. She litters her songs with sonic oddities and quirkiness that for someone like me, a cynic of mainstream pop, is hugely refreshing.
If you were a fan of "Blue Nile" then Imogen Heap will be right up your street. Less minimalist but she embroiders her songs from the same thread. There's also a touch of "The Sundays" in there too.
Imogen deserves a place at the top table with Kate Bush and Tori Amos on the basis of this Album. Keep up the good work Ms Heap!
