Katie Melua's velvet voice, combined with haunting melodies and deep lyrics which you just can't help but pay complete undivided attention to, makes this album one of the must-haves of the year.

"I Will Be There" has to be my favourite song of the entire year. Katie's voice sings this like no one else could.

My only criticism of this album would be that the full orchestral version of 'I Will Be There' isn't featured on this album - such a shame! I would definitely suggest buying the mp3 along with this album. The full concert recording is utter perfection!

By Angel Delta TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 16 Sept. 2013
Format: Audio CD
The release of "Ketevan" (Katie's Georgian birthname)marks her sixth studio album since her multi platinum debut "Call Off The Search" in 2003.

There was always something warm and comforting about Katie's voice as she caressed the lyrics of Mike Batt's timeless songs in her previous albums and the delightful "Ketevan" continues that tradition. There is an effortless blend of pop and jazz - tinged with the blues - about her style and Mike Batt knows how to let her unique voice lift the songs and the music to a place where angels dwell. This elegance is captured in blue with the gorgeous ballads "Never Felt Less Like Dancing" and "Sailing Ships From Heaven".

In contrast I love the retro jazz sound of "Mad Mad Men" and "Idiot School" and the melancholy bluesy feel of "Love Is A Silent Thief". But the album's finest moment is the haunting Mike Batt song "I Will Be There" that he was commissioned to write for the 60th anniversary of the coronation of Her Majesty The Queen.

This beautiful song brings together melody, lyrics, orchestra and voice in a showcase for the glorious rapport that exists between Katie Melua and her mentor, Mike Batt. Long may it continue to flourish.

Spent my Christmas gift money on this Katie Melua album, and what a great choice ! I have a fair few of her CD's now and have heard her perform live at Hampton Court Palace Summer Festival in 2012 - she is consistently good. This new album is no exception with her crystal cut diction and succinct sublime songs, all of which are brilliant, my very favourite is 'I Will Be There'. I agree with other reviewers, in so much as the fade out should be longer (after all you can't have too much of a good thing), and not having heard the full version with orchestra's final note, one can only imagine how divine this would sound.

Can highly recommend, if you are wondering how to best spend your Christmas money.

Wasn't sure after the first play but now I suspect there's a danger that the laser in the CD player will be burning through the disc! Some great tracks written by Mike Batt, beautifully presented by Katie. I just can't get enough of the CD at the moment

This is my first Katie Melua CD and I am really, really impressed, by her music writors, and the performers, and production, yes definitely she is not doing this on her own, but her strident voice and emotion goes perfectly out front with their music. Pop is now such a broad definition, but this is nothing like some production line up like S Club 7, or other It Girls of recent years like the Spice Girls, in fact in comparison it is an old fashioned line up, even if some of it raunchy, such as Shiver and Shake, and I love the simplicity of some of it. Lyrics are interesting, provoking, meaningful, demanding, not wishy washy or all too typical. It's not like she is trying to emulate some country bumpkin but it has an authentic feel, for instance the countrified The Love I'm Frightened Of. Yes, excellent production, but also, real music, and some of it puts a cool slant on things, other times it is just really beautiful. Charming at times too, such as the lightly bubbling sing-a-long Where Does the Ocean Go? And the self effacing Idiot School with its New Orleans jazz type melancholic bop along. For me the most beautiful pieces are the 1st, with its sorrowful heartache, and last, with the relaxed funky guitar plodding along to catchy lyrics about the woman down the street. Does this have something to do with the Queen I read? To me it doesn't, but that is when a song has its universality and succeeds. Everyone needs to know a woman in the street and its just like that, an ordinary, beautiful piece. Beautiiful and accomplished singing.

Had not purchased any recent stuff from Katie because I thought she had lost an edge or true distinction of what she wrote and would sing about!
This is a slow burner, it needs more than a few listens to begin to truly appreciate what is going on!
Stick with it because it does prove her calibre as a song writer and as a singer. Each song begins to have its own character so the listener begins to hear the more than what they may think is a sameness to previous material!
The last track is my favourite because i was humming the hook line after the first play and this really encouraged me to listen the album in parts as opposed to hearing it all complete! It was this approach that made me ponder and alter my first impression!
It is worth more that a few plays

When I purchased Ketevan I already had 3 of Katie's albums. Listening to Katie on a good sound system really emphasises the wonderful clear and relaxing voice she has. One concern I had was that this would be a little too similar to her previous albums. In some ways the album has its own style with some great tracks. However, I can't help wondering if I would have rated this album a 5 if it was the first Katie album I had purchased.

The bottom line is that is you are new to Katie Melua you will NOT be disappointed with this. My favourite album purchase over the last couple of years is Norah Jones 'Little Broken Hearts' - an album that is superb and maybe sets the standard for this sort of music. I'll always return and listen to the many lovely Katie Melua albums, and this album is maybe her best yet.
