A more mature Paloma,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fall To Grace (Audio CD)
Back in 2010, Paloma Faith burst onto the scene. She released a joyful, playful debut album which spawned several top 20 singles (see my review). Now in 2012, I feel we are introduced to Faiths alter-ego, a more mature and thoughtful side. The opening single picking up the pieces is already in the top 10, but can we expect more successful singles?
Yes. This album is smart and sophisticated. Picking up the pieces is a tremendous opener o an album, full of grace and glamour. 30 minute love affair is more electro pop than what we are used to, but because it is Paloma, she pulls it off well. It is the same for Black & Blue. Then we come to one of the saddest songs I have heard. Just Be. This song sounds great live as well. From there on the quality gets a little worse, but it is only a matter of time before she finds her feet. I think that Agony or Freedom will be the next single.
All in all, don't listen to the bad reviews. This album will make you smile and cry at the same time. One of the albums of the year!

I agree with you and I think Freedom should be the next single, its does have a slight similar sound to Emeli Sande's Heaven but I think that's why I like it!
