Good

ProGood to chill out to. Nice if you like her voice!

ConsThe album doesn't stand out. Annoying warbles here...

Katie Melua…ahhhh, that girl with the warble who likes to count the number of various modes of transport, in foreign climates…ah the joys of metaphorical lyrical creations (of course, I'm referring to one of her biggest hits '9 million bicycles (in Beijing)' (released in 2005). How clever she is...

Prosome of her most mature, best work on here

Conscouple of fillers

I don't think I was the only one that when Katie Melua burst onto the scene I was sick to death of hearing that bloody 'closest thing to crazy' song. In fact back in my youthful ways I pretty much dismissed the talent from there; I have a knack of not liking songs that are played 1000 times a day...

ProKatie Melua's same style and vocals

ConsSongs are not as memorable as previous albums

I've been a big fan of Katie Melua ever since her first number one single in the UK "Closest thing to crazy". It was very refreshing to come across a solo female artist with such a distinct smooth voice and now so many years on after all her success it is easy to recognise a Katie Melua vocal...

A farcry from the stereotype I may have had thrust upon myself through my previous album reviews, it wouldn't be entirely unfair to say a verdict from myself on a Katie Melua album isn't going to be as generous as I have to a cast of R&B artists. On the other hand, Katie Melua does not fall under...

ProGreat fun and a real treat to listen to...

ConsA few of the tracks are a little under par

After not being keen on her last album quite so much (piece by piece) which I felt was slightly lacking after her amazing debut, I can honestly say that with this latest offering, Katie is right back on form again with Pictures- her difficult third album. Right from the beginning, the album...

“More of the same.”

published 29/04/2008

ProSoothing melodies as you would expect

ConsNothing New

The soft vocals and beautiful ballads of Katie Melua, sound familiar. I feel her work is getting to the end of its range, she has created some lovely songs and this album has its fair share of those, but lovely only gets you so far. Once you have heard two albums worth of soft melodies you are...

Consnot for those who need a perk up

ConsIt could be said that this is a bit too familiar.

I guess the questions we want answered are: Has this album taken us to a new place ? Does it feel familiar enough to be recognisably Katie Melua ? The second question is easier than the first. Yes, if you are a fan of Katie Melua then you will enjoy this album. The tracks 'All in My Head' and 'If...
