The Cherry Thing is a marvellous album. This is not some sort of vanity project or nostalgia trip.

That’s essentially the mode of attack of ‘The Cherry Thing’ ... lure you in with slink, then bend your mind with skronk.

It's a remarkably well-defined, cohesive, and above all things inviting listen, and at eight tracks it feels neither slight nor needlessly sprawling.

It's just fantastically accessible, tightly constructed (as far as improvisational music can be), and smart.

It might be too pop for The Thing’s fans and too disruptive for Cherry’s, but the phenomenal performances from Cherry and Gustafsson simply blast away any genre preconceptions

Cherry’s quarter-decade career has been characterised by her effortless application of unparalleled pop instincts to every genre she’s dabbled in, and this remains the case here.

Neither Neneh Cherry nor The Thing are well served by the self imposed shackles within a lot of these tracks, perhaps intended to provide security while building new musical relationships.

It's a tough listen, shrill and disjointed.
