Album Review

Tanita Tikaram's debut, Ancient Heart, was a surprise worldwide smash. For her follow-up, the British singer brings much of the same cast back, including Rod Argent and Peter Van Hooke who again co-produce. The result is much the same as the first go round. Musically, The Sweet Keeper is fairly unadventurous — melodic, jazz-inflected adult pop with touches of folk. The only real moments that resonate are the tracks on which Sonny Landreth adds guitar. Lyrically, Tikaram is somewhat impenetrable, often going in circles that are so personal they leave the listener baffled. However, it's hard to resist that voice, husky and sounding more world-wise than her years. If it weren't for her voice, The Sweet Keeper would be easy to disregard. As things are, it's worth a listen, especially the Tikaram's hushed delivery on "It All Came Back Today."

A Grower

While many people discovered Tanita via her previous album Ancient Heart I must have been in a space at the time for this album was my entree to the feast of music Tanita has since provided. Being attracted to the beautiful album shot and entranced by her deep mournful voice these songs began to grow and haunt me in such a beautiful way. They get under your skin and the subtle melodys hang around your head. Lyrically she is fascinating from the mid tempo Once and Not Speak to the beatier We almost got it Together then slowing down to the hauntingly beautiful Little Sister Leaving Town. "This is not an album to listen in a hurry as the songs really must be appreciated. This album contains what I think to be one of Tanita's best ever songs Harm in your Hands which starts slow and then breaks out even to dance mode.
