Customer Review

Recent music releases seem to be dominated by people who take it all ever so seriously and seem to have forgotten that music can be fun. Imelda May corrects that with this charming release, her third as a solo artist (`No turning back' and `Love Tattoo' preceded this)

The style is mainly up-tempo rockabilly, a big band with some great electric guitars backing a powerful singer belting out tracks with vim and vigour. Stylistically it is a lot like Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra's recordings. Largely written by Imelda May, the songs sound as though they were recorded in the late fifties, but with lyrics and themes that come straight from the world of today. A sense of fun pervades throughout and you really get the impression that everyone involved was having a whale of a time, which is quite infectious.

Standout tracks are `Sneaky Freak', a good example of the fifties sound with the modern themes, and `Tainted Love'. This song, which has been everything from a soul stomper to an electronic synthpop hit, is here transformed into a classic dancehall rock'n'roll track, and guaranteed to get you up and dancing.

A great feelgood album which will lift anyone's day. 5 stars.
