Mambo De La Kirsty!, 13 Nov. 2000
Having got my hands on a promo copy of In These Shoes before the album was released, I had an idea what to expect. I wasn't wild about the single at that stage, being distinctly unimpressed by all the other "Latin" artists flooding the music scene, but I went ahead and bought the album anyway - and am I glad I did! A superb piece of work which, were it not for the protests of my partner, would be constantly playing both at home and in the car. Joyous and sublime, my one piece of advice would be - turn it up! I don't mean earth-shattering volume, but crank it up a bit and you hear all sorts of layers of sound lost at lower volume. I love the contrasts between all-out classic belters like Treachery and Us Amazonians and the slower tracks such as Autumngirlsoup and Wrong Again. Not a dud track to be found. Listen carefully to the lyrics for Autumngirlsoup to hear why Kirsty is one of our best singer/songwriters, and why this is probably my favourite track. Please miss, I want some more!
