EDITORS’ NOTES

Welcoming and earthy, Corinne Bailey Rae’s self-titled album sounds so self-assured that it’s shocking to realize it was her first release as a solo artist. Schooled in both classical violin and hard-edged rock, the English singer/songwriter alchemized her influences to produce a soulful, strikingly timeless collection. These warm-hued, languid cuts—especially the gentle, brassy sway of “Put Your Records On” and the dreamy, acoustic “Like a Star”—radiate an exquisite polish.
