This is an interesting, unique and really enjoyable album, brought to life by Nash's adept mix of wit and emotion and her skilful vocal style. I think you can feel the joy and experimentation of making music in each track.
This album is brilliant and I regard it as Kate's best work. Every track is good, it's upbeat and mixed with open honest and brilliant lyrics. The album sounds very much together as opposed to simply a collection of songs. The production is fantastic and Kate's voice has never sounded better. Kate's hard work has really paid off. She has come through heartaches and disappointments that could have broke her but instead they made her. She is an inspiration to many and this album shows her at her best. Her songs are personal, honest and real. This is great work Kate.
Track 1 - Life in Pink I love the contract in this song. The verse could fit on "Made Of Bricks" and the chorus could fit on "Girl Talk". best. Great lyric, melody and a ton of attitude. What a great start to the album. it's so commercial and so good.
Track 2 - Call Me - I love the groove in this song, It has so much hope in the lyric which is all about her overcoming adversity. Kate is so open and so strong and such an inspiration.
Track 3 - Take Away - Another upbeat feeling song with a great feel. Thisis a lyric that expresses the desire for the simple things in life. Tune in and be taken away on a great date with kate.
Track 4 - Hate You - A song about an ex who's better being an ex. Even when Kate hates someone she rises above it hates in a cute positivity. This is a great song to play when your self esteem is low. Great work
Track 5 - Drink About You - this is a great rocker and very much in the style that she created on "Girl talk" It's honest, sexy and brilliant.
Track 6 - On an album with no bad tracks it is such a joy to see it lift up a level with this composition. This could even be the best song that Kate has written. I can hear this song going down so well at Glstonbury or some other big festival. The aong is full of passion and the sound is pure class.
Track 7 - Karaoke Kiss - This is very different and it has a very 80's feel. The "Pet shop Boys" would be proud to have written this.
Track 8 - Musical theatre - I love Kates talking voice as much as her singing voice. She talk, sings this and raps it. it is a pure masterpiece of honesty and sharpness and brilliance of poetry.
Track 9 - California Poppies - A song of vulnearbility and the frustration of trying to get her lover get a grip. This track is really heavy and dreamy at the same time. California Poppies are in bloomand so is Kate.
Track 10 - Always Shining - What a fantastic simple song. Less is more in this song. Painful and sad but it has a great simple message "younever lookback at the sun cus it's always shinkng" Keep looking ahead Kate because you are going in the right direction.
Track 11 - Yesterday was Forever - A very tender and honest song about overcoming adversity. This is inspirational and optimist and Kate knows that it's ok to have her "watch the days go by" days because she knows that she her creative days too.
Track 12 - Twisted Up - A song full of passion and of the yearning to be touched, physically and mentally.
Track 13 - My Little Alien - this is a charming and brilliant song. It has that innocent and cute sound that could fit well in the American late 50's. The melody is so strong that it carries the listener away on a cloud of joy. I love this song so much. it's perfect.
Track 14 - I Belong - This is perfect ending to a brilliant album. This is a song about the love of music mixed the sadness of a lost love. Kate pleads for love and who can turn her down. I can identify so much with this song and I can see so many young girls idetifying with it. Kate is an inspiration to the world. Thank God that we have her. Kate, you are much loved.
