A lot of folks say Paloma has sold out with this album. Well having heard Picking Up the Pieces I'm inclined to say "So what?". Good for her - if you could earn that much money with your voice would say no? I sure as heck wouldn't! Mercenary? No, just business.
Same Paloma Faith, same voice and if the rest of the album is only half as good as the one track I've heard so far, I'm going to enjoy taking delivery of it on release date!
Just based on Picking Up The Pieces, stunning vocals, brilliant orchestral backing, poignant story behind the words and she looks incredible in the video (Google it, you'll find it).
Can't give 5 stars as I haven't heard the rest of the album but I suspect it wouldn't be hard to do so in May...
