Sadly Kirsty is no longer with us so this album was to become her swansong . Luckily it's absolutely magnificent. It's an album of some of Kirsty's strongest songs ever. The flavour is South American obviously influenced from her time living there. Don't be put off by that, try it, it's not that scary.
In terms of quality of songwriting, it's on a par with the songs on career best album 'Kite' but as I say the flavour of the songs is completely different. As ever Kirsty's pop sensibilities never leave her and her humour is prevalent throughout most of these songs , 'In These Shoes?' and 'England 2 Columbia 0' particularly.
Kirsty is sorely missed and I would have loved to have heard the follow up to this album. So much talent.
It you've only ever bought and loved the compilation 'Galore', go get this, you'll love it too.
