As with a lot of people, I heard 'Put Your Records On' at some point on TV and loved it, gave in to all the media hype about this album and bought it. And like a lot of people, I was rather disappointed - it was almost anticlimactic. It wasn't bad, nothing too special.

However, things change.

As I continued to listen to the album - even if just for 'Put Your Records On' and 'Breathless' at first - it started to grow on me. If you ever listened to 'O' by Damien Rice, I suspect you know what I mean. What both of the albums have in common is that while they are at first disarmingly subtle (verging on boring, to be frank), they grow on you. In a HUGE way. It may take you 4, 5, maybe more run-throughs, but be assured that this CD is a sound investment. If you've got the patience to get to know this music, you won't be at all disappointed.

Well I cannot understand anyone who listens through an Ipod to a compressed MP3 file daring to make a comment on sound quality. The reason most things are so badly recorded is because the population are listening to WAV's through £10 headphones.

For those who have Hi Fi equipment, take a listen to Miss Bailey Rae. The vocal arrangements are oustanding, and though the recording has been made radio friendly this is still music that should be given positive consideration. I think she has talent, and as she writes as well as sings it would be great if she was encouraged, or we will end up with just Pop Idol clones to download onto disposable hard drives..

Not a great album, but very, very good. Give it a try.

Almost two years ago, during the course of a school program, I heard "Like a Star" for the first time, as it was the background selection used by a dance group. I was, figuratively, blown away by Rae's mesmerizing vocals and had to hear more from the young artist.

I'm glad that I opted to buy the double CD over the original release because it offers the listener the chance to really appreciate Rae's diversity, as she tackles a variety of styles, from R & B to jazz to "torch" songs.

Corinne Bailey Rae's voice is reminiscent of so many vocal stylists like Billie Holliday and current favorite Erykah Badu; However, she is painting her own place in the musical landscape and this double-CD - especially on the covers on disc 2 - is the perfect introduction to a singer that's destined for a long career in music.

What a throaty but delicious voice young Corinne has. I heard her on late night TV recently and I was surprised that I really liked how she sang, not only that, I liked the songs she was singing too!

I loved the song Put Your Records On, it was so charming and surreal and Trouble Sleeping was equally as good, not only that but both the videos were eye catching and very 1940s to 1950s to look at with bike rides in the country and visits to a basement jazz hall by a sultry looking Corinne who reminded me of a 21st century Nina Simone.

All the songs on this Album are pretty good, Corinne has done very well for one so young, and I look forward to watching her mature, I just hope she doesn't become too full of herself, I think if she does, she will loose some of the sparkling charm which makes her a cut above other artists of a similar ilk.

Wow...I first heard of Corinne Bailey Rae last year and have been waiting for the album ever since. Simply stunning!
Think of her as a UK version of Erykah Badu / Jill Scott...so if you like these artists, you'll love this album.
Nice soulful music to relax to...great stuff.

I'm in love. I can't think of any other way to describe it. It's another two months until this album is released, and I'm counting the days. I've heard four or five tracks from this album on various websites, and I'm giving it five stars based on those.
Like most people I guess, I first saw Corinne Bailey Rae on Jools Holland's TV programme, and I can't remember the last time I was so transfixed - I don't think I breathed at all until the end of the song, and I was left speechless and wide-eyed.
What a voice Corinne has! Expressive, fragile, powerful... I'm not really an expert on this kind of music, but elsewhere she has drawn comparisons with Lauren Hill and Billie Holliday, and she certainly fits into the same category, but has a talent all her own. There's real character to her voice, and despite her open singing style each listen reveals new nuances like flavours in wine.
This album is definitely going to make if feel like summer, no matter when it is played. Open the windows, the sun is out.
p.s. at the time of writing Amazon does not show the tracklisting for this album, but on other websites I have seen it shown as :
Like a Star - Enchantment - Put Your Records On - Til It Happens To You - Trouble Sleeping - Call Me When You Get This - Choux Pastry Heart - Breathless - I'd Like To - Butterfly - Seasons Change.

Expectations were high, fuelled by her performance on Jools Holland's show and the praise lauded thereon by Burt Bacharach, the frequent airplay across most radio stations of the two singles thus far released, and by some heavy-handed record company promotion proclaiming Corinne Bailey Rae's as the voice of 2006 and the new Billie Holiday.
My initial reaction to this CD upon trying to listen to it was to go in the completely opposite direction. For a start it took five attempts to listen to it all the way through without nodding off to sleep - it is so easy, one-paced and slickly produced that the temptation was to immediately dismiss it to the cure-for-insomnia or after-dinner-party categories. However, something has made me stick with it and convinced me it's more than just that.
I can't really see the comparison with BH myself, I think it's insulting to both ladies. If it's true that you're influenced by what you hear growing up at home, then I suspect that her family record collection includes Sade, Sly Stone and, from the mockney intro to "Put Your Record On", some All Saints. Corinne's singing voice sounds pure and natural, and very English (no hint of Leeds, though). I'm not sure how strong it is - the nature of the songs are such that she's closely miked and intimate, and they certainly don't warrant or get any vocal gymnastics - but you can hear every word quite clearly, which is quite remarkable.
The songs themselves are all self-penned, with help in the music department from various members of her band. The lyrics are simple and beautiful, some might say too much so, of her experiences in love and, in the later ones, reminiscing about growing up at home.
