By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 3 Nov. 2004
Format: Audio CD
This is soulful pop and rock at its best, an album of impressive versatility. McCluskey's vocals are warm and engaging, strong at times, then dreamy then vulnerable. The instrumental mix is particularly imaginative, and includes guitar, piano, organ, strings and even slide guitar, whilst the rhythms include pop, country-rock and reggae. In between, there are exquisite atmospheric moments, little trip-hop infusions that add a special charm. My favourite songs include It's Been Done, Love Is Stronger Than Death and Sleep On It but her exceptional voice makes even the weaker material an enjoyable listening experience.

Ah! Angela... why did you stop after one?
"It's been done" is an amazing song - usual, pop-like backbone on a Springsteen type rythm, but her instrumental choice is deliciously risky, atypical. Harp and violin sounds intertwin with guitars, and her bird-like voice comes from a distance to haunt you. This first song is a marvel, and deserves that anyone should buy the whole album, if only to keep Angela alive and keeping doing more, better.
The rest of the album is more classical, although rythms tend to delicately differentiate from typical pop-rock songs. I don't have a lot of experience of female rock, but I'd say the overall result isn't unlike Beverly Jo Scott (not far from being a compliment), and McCluskey's voice somewhere between Macy Gray for its hoarse character, and Bjork for its ever changing octave.
The (her?) lyrics, throughout, are beautiful, which to me justifies 4 stars.
A good debut, I'd like Angela to come up with more, soon, and please, as innovative as her first song. She can do it, "it's been done" before.

How could a record of this quality receive such mixed reviews? It is an absolutely beautiful record - distinctive, classy, assured and deeply engaging. She has such a distinctive voice and the delivery is totally assured. Since downloading the album I've found copies in second-hand stores and sale bins, and I just have to buy them to give to others. She's too good to be lost in a sale bin!

.... since I bought this rather unusual album, hoping for the next one to follow soon. What happened to her? Although Angela does not have a particularly good voice, the lyrics are well-written and worth listening to. Not the kind of songs that I would keep playing regularly over a long period, but from time to time I do enjoy them and hope to hear from this singer again.
