At £4.65 that I paid it is a steal
on 22 February 2015
I bought this about three days ago. Have been listening to the free Amazon AutoRip version of it. When the CD arrives it will sound better over the mp3 versions. However it is a brilliant album.
If you love Next to Me, and Read all about It Pt III, you should by all estimates love this. The whole album is full of interesting acoustical moments to make your headphones dance, buzz, and jump about. The tracks are all good. Many of the songs are loosely based around the 'I love you' theme. However it's infinitely different from a slushy heavy stream of ballads from one end to the other. Next to me is about knowing her chap will be close by. In other words it's taking the love tune from unique perspectives. Additionally, the bonus tracks are well worth owning.
Emeli's voice in the two tracks I mentioned captures the listener's imagination, feelings, and emotions. The rest of the album does the same; have no fear about that.
EDIT: Three weeks now since I reviewed. This CD continues to grow on me, after having landed firmly in my affections as a favourite after about nine listens. I know it will be one I will listen to my whole life.
