This review is from: Love Life & Leaving (Audio CD)
There's no way in hell I can possibly describe this without use of "strengthening" words, so....it's REALLY difficult to pin down just what it is that makes this album soooo ...brilliant. There's never been another album like this. I bought it on the strength of hearing one song on the radio (managed to find it fairly cheap by some miracle) and I've never been so chuffed in my life. If you like garage rock, soul, gospel, 50's pop.....nah, screw it, you'll like it whatever kind of thing you're into. Rachael Nagy's voice will make you stop and listen. 'Shout Bama Lama' (the last track, what a way to end an album) WILL make you repeat it over and over and over and over etc (31 times is my highest, it won't take long it's less than 2 minutes). I have no objection to short albums, in fact quite the opposite, I don't like long albums that outstay their welcome. This 14-track album is over in 29 minutes 49 seconds (according to my stereo) but don't let this put you off, it IS an astonishing album with not a single weak track, just PLEASE go and buy it.
