This is a brillent album. The first two tracks are quite quick. Then the tracks after that are the Gabrielle that I know. Includes the track "Why".

It was "Bridget Jones's Diary" that got my attention in relation to Gabrielle with her amazing song, "Out of Reach". Since then, I haven't followed her every musical move, but when I saw that she was releasing a new album, my interest was piqued again. Seeing her recently on T.V. for a behind the scenes mini-documentary about the making-of her single "Why", I finally decided to purchase ALWAYS.

The overall feel of the album is about love at the end stages. Some of the tracks are more sombre than others, whilst there are tracks that show you that someitmes the person who does the leaving is often the one who shall regret walking away (for example, "Cold Sober Moment").
As another reviewer has said, although the breakup of relationships is the dominant theme here, Gabrielle has done it in a way that does not depress you as you listen. Thankfully this means that you can easily listen to the entire album in one sitting without wanting to give up on life.

Perhaps because of the way I came to her music, when Gabrielle is doing the 'standard' ballad, I personally thinks she shines. "Why" is one such example, although she does give it a new flavour by introducing a guest vocalist, Paul Weller. "Every Little Teardrop" is also another favourite of mine - it is something that I can feel an affinity to - and perfectly shows the idea that even after heartache there is a way to heal and not be fooled by those who are not worthy of our affections and our time.

Overall this is a fantastic album. If you enjoy soul, but with influences from other areas, this album could be just what you are looking for.

our gab has been around a long time now and her albums - though few and far between - never disappoint!

how she can come up with writing so many songs about lost love - but each one that touches the listener - will never cease to amaze me as they are all positive and not maudling!

the new album harks back to great gabrielle, but some songs have a feel of the last album which, despite being a comparitive flop, i thought was her best yet! also you get some get motown type numbers..even a bit of 70s glam rock!

track by track

"always"is a good opener but the production sounds "tinny" and spoils it 7/10

"heartbreaker" has a 70s glam rock feel and again the production lets it down 5/10

"why" the 1st single and reworking of paul wellers "wildwood" failed to set the charts alight..still its a great track and deserved to do a lot better 9/10

"i remember" harks back to motown and has a great happy feel 8/10

"every little teardrop" again is full of the motown sound and it works 7/10

"im not in love" has the same guitar rifts from the last album..it works! a lovely song 8/10

"wiser" sounds like its of the phil spector christmas album - very motown in the 60's.... i can see the supremes singing this 8/10

"wiser" has the country sound of the last album...pure vocals...great lyrics 8/10

"all i want" has a big orchestra behind it..a big track handled will style 9/10

"its breaking my heart" is a lovely track with great lyrics..my favourite so far 9/10

"cold sober" is another lovely gabrielle track...although without a choir...i has the feel that the track is building to a climax 8/10

"show me love" is a great track! gabrielle doing what she does best!

There is no question - this is Gabrielle's masterpiece album. She's not groundbreaking in the Madonna/Bjork sense of the word... she's not got the technically astounding vocals of Mica Paris/Beverley Knight. But what Gabrielle has are pop songs that are simple, to the point and well-crafted. And on 'Always', her 5th studio album, she highlights this with an extraordinarily consistent collection of songs.

Her producers have pushed away from the country-leanings of her last, more introspective, album 'Play To Win' to create a modern sound, influenced by 60s/70s soul leanings as well.

From the Kanye West-esque title track to the Primal Scream influenced 'Heartbreaker' to the gentle soulful lead single, 'Why', featuring Paul Weller, Gabrielle tries her hand at different genres, all to excellent standards. She completely flourishes on epic sounding piano ballads like 'All I Want', 'Show Me Love' and the heartbreaking 'Closure' and her vocals have never sounded as empowered as they do in the closing minute of the 70s-sounding 'Every Little Teardrop'.

The theme of 'breaking up' recurs on nearly every track and yet Gabrielle has made the lyrics strangely uplifting - we learn so much from break-ups, they aren't just about heartache. That's the message I got from the album.

A resounding return to form for the UK's premier soul singer. Welcome back!

Many people (including me) felt slightly disappointed upon the release of Play To Win- a rather typical and at times forgettable album. There were a few highlights but I don't play the album as much as the Greatest Hits or Rise. Not only that but there were no clear singles, hence why they both flopped and probably the reason why this album isn't selling well and the single performed poorly. However this album is fantastic- Gabrielle has moved away from her traditional sound to create a quirky and innovative new album. The music at times on this album is very very unusual the songs and lyrics are fantastic!
1.Always-This track is upbeat quirky brill, but it almost sounds messy! 8/10
2.Heartbreaker-Catchy and upbeat, but on repeated listens gets worse. 7/10
3.Why-The first single and a real grower what a fantastically soulful ballad and her vocals sound better than ever before. 10/10
4.I Remember-Again very quirky. Love it! 8/10
5.Every Little Teardrop-Upbeat and again super vocals. 10/10
6.I'm Not In Love-A ballad- superb! 9/10
7.Love Me Like You Do-A fantastic chorus, dynamic wonderful. 10/10
8.Wiser-A ballad but very very catchy. 9/10
9.All I Want-Another strong song. 8/10
10.It's Breaking My Heart-Probably the most forgettable song on the album. 6/10
11.Cold Sober Moment-Back on form and an amazingly brill song. 9/10
12.Show Me Love-A nice ending. 7/10
...Closure-A bit more of a typical ballad, strong vocally. 7.5/10
