Adding a note of dissent,
This review is from: I Wish I Could Have Loved You More (Audio CD)
I bought this album on the strength of its reviews, but I was sorely disappointed. Payne's voice is OK, but generic, without the abrasiveness of Amy Winehouse, the emotion of Dusty Springfield, or the lightness of touch and vivacity of the Pipettes.
On top of that, the songs are repetitive and, more than anything, her lyrics are banal.
It is not the worst album about at the moment, but it is definitely not all it is hyped up to be.
