Corinne Bailey Rae:Corinne Bailey Rae
[review based on 5-track sampler CD]
When I first heard 'Put Your Records On' on the radio I thought, 'This is very good.' I thought this lady's voice was cool and original. But I have to say it wasn't too long before I was quite bored with the whole thing. I remember I had the same experience a few years back when Macy Gray appeared with her single 'I Cry." I've never liked a Macy Gray record since. Sadly I have to say that I feel much the same about the songs on this sampler and so I fear for the whole LP. You've heard one - you've heard the lot. Sorry but this is one album I won't be rushing out to buy and can't foresee myself looking forward to the next or any subsequent offering from Corinne Bailey Rae.
