Hometime - Alison Moyet

This was a sort of comeback album for Alison Moyet, and it got good reviews. It even did quite well commercially I believe.

It's a professional effort, and feels good. There are some nice tunes, and that distictive vocal is a welcome respite from the mass produced pulp we're getting used to from the blond bimbette brigade.

But, you knew there was a but coming didn't you?

One judgement of an album is how much of it you can remember later. Do you find yourself humming the tunes in your head whilst walking down the street? With repeated listens do you look forward to particular tracks coming up? I'm sorry to say, that even though these songs sound good as you're consuming them, when you've finished they slip away into the ether. I've just finished listening to the whole thing, probably for about something like the 15th time, and I'm struggling to remember even one song.

Best Tracks - "Mary Don't Keep Me Waiting" is quite haunting. By far the standout track.

worst Tracks - no bad tracks really, but just not memorable enough.
