Ever the enchantress, Katie Melua is back again with another great album! On the heels of "Secret Symphony" comes this album, that feels as warm and cozy as a hot chocolate, and as classy as drinking the best wine at a Parisian cafe. Standout songs for me include "Chase Me", which sounds like something that came out of the 40's with it's lush vocals and nostalgic violins and piano. "I Will Be There", the song that was written for the Queen in honor of her Coronation Gala in 2013, is a beautiful ballad that celebrates a matriarch and also mothers everywhere. One of the most haunting tracks is "Sailing Ships from Heaven", which makes you want to evoke longing for a lost loved one with it's somewhat melancholic tone. Even still, a great track! Even though I'd love to see Katie do another "The House" kind of album again one day, this is a great record and proves she can still deliver great music, one decade after she burst onto the scene! Truly God's gift to music! Compared to other songwriters of this era, she doesn't come across as arrogant or over-the-top autobiographical. She's just Katie singing as only Katie can do! Give this album a listen!

Fabulous Voice

I purchased Katie Melua's First CD in England when visiting family. This CD is awesome! Katie has a fantastic voice & I have her songs in my Meditation playlist! My fav is Shiver N Shake, & Sailing Ships in Heaven!

Oh my lord, this is bad. Katie's voice on this particular album is frail and pitchy. I can't bear to listen through the whole thing again.
