Simply brilliant. Fiona comes at you like a wave. She is unstoppable. A monster. A behemoth.

Bunch of... demos?! Trouble In Town & Champion of the World are pretty good, though.

Kate Bush would be proud.
"sad day" is a strong candidate for Song of the year

Okay, okay - I was wrong. This is not pop for the masses, this is crafty pop for the bourgeois. And it's definitely not formulaic, it's the opposite of formulaic.
Okay, there are tens of great hooks and choruses but the album as a whole lacks what I call "The Cutting Edge". I think that the instrumentals are not on the same level as the song-writing.

I do smell the album of the year here.
It's easy to listen, there is space in this music, it's so chilled out. It sounds as brand new and at the same time it somehow brings me back to childhood and gives me a sense of nostalgia. This is how you make pop, kids.
