Top critical review
One for the coffe shops and cafes!
on 3 March 2010
Having been seduced by Angelique's earlier works (especially Fifa and Oremi), with the release of Oyo I felt it was time to remake her acquaintance. Sadly, I found this latest work to be instantly forgettable. Whilst maintaining the excellent production values, superb recording, vocals and backing musicians, it contained none of the energy, verve, intensity and emotion that captured my ears and imagination in some of her her earlier works. In fact, I found it soporific and unengaging, with not one memorable track. I can imagine it serving well as background music in a cafe or coffee shop, but cannot recommend it for serious listening; except, perhaps, for ardent fans who have followed her career closely. Certainly it is not the work that I would suggest for those seeking an introduction to this highly talented vocalist and her equally impressive cavalcade of collaborators.
