Album Review

Saint Etienne's glossy chanteuse Sarah Cracknell picks up where her debut album Lipslide left off with the exclusive release of Kelly's Locker, an eight track look at Cracknell's sheer Europop harmonies and dreamy female grace. She is often compared to '60s pop diva Dusty Springfield, but Cracknell is humbly her own popstar. This release is a bit more synth-driven, and songs like "Taking off for France" and "Taxi" exude a sophisticated disco flair that's naturally linked to Cracknell's sweet but smooth persona. She follows the funk, playing into quick blues tinges and frolicking drum 'n' bass. What's most alluring is Cracknell's cover version of the Charmels' 1969 Stax track "Sea Shells." It's absolutely fantastic; modern day breakbeats loosely carrying back to nostalgia. Kelly's Locker is a refreshing and decent solo effort for Ms. Cracknell; a fundamental addition to any Saint Etienne collection or pop music enthusiast.
