No repairs necessary,
This review is from: A Few Small Repairs (Audio CD)
By the time of her fourth studio album, Shawn Colvin had markedly improved in both the tone and quality of her voice - now velvety rich - and her songwriting skills, which here produce an album full of truly memorable songs that vary widely in tempo and subject matter, but never in quality.
From the hugely gripping and uptempo rant of "Get of this house" to utterly heart wrenching sorrow of "If I were brave" the album runs the gamut of emotions and tempos of fabulous guitar pop music.
With a tinge of American folk, Colvin writes female singer-songwriter songs that you could bracket with the rockier side of Mary Chapin Carpenter or the more melodic side of Suzanne Vega.
It's also a beautifully produced album that highlights her excellent voice, but allows instruments to breathe and compliment the voice effortlessly.
For £6.99, you'd be mad not to!
