Winter Blues? - Listen to this!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Tropical Brainstorm (Audio CD)
Is it any wonder that almost every review so far has awarded this album 5 stars. If you're reading this and you haven't listened to 'Tropical Brainstorm' yet, then you're missing out on one of the best albums to be released in years. Listening to this album really made me realise what a truly unique and talented musician we've all lost. It was 'In these shoes' that first got me hooked, I played it to a friend who is the sort of person who would use the line in normal conversation, from then on we've both been listening to it non-stop. There is not a track on this album that I would skip over. With the exception of Autumngirlsoup, which serves as a fantastic contrast to the 'summery' feel of the rest of the album, it's like the sun comes out when you hear it. Kirsty was never one to use meaningless lines in songs just to fill the lyrics out, and she hasn't done it here either. You get two albums in one if you listen for the lyrics, and then again for the music. 'England 2 Columbia 0' - a modern day version of 'I will survive' perhaps?
