Queen of hearts

"For this second album Shetlands chanteuse Astrid Williamson left for New Orleans and producer Malcolm Burn, who fashioned a driving, synth-oriented sound not unlike his work for Sinead Lohan (No Mermaid.) I have mixed feelings about this approach, not least because her Goya Dress bandmates are largely reduced to session musicians, but Astrid is so fearless both lyrically and vocally that such considerations merit only a cursory mention. For the album's highlight, Someone, Burn conjures up a rain-drenched atmosphere that frames Astrid's song of devotion perfectly.The reward for her efforts was bittersweet: a smattering of critical acclaim, disappointing record sales and the loss of her record deal. Lately she's been seen playing around Brighton, and her name has been usurped by a pop band from her native Scotland. This is hardly the profile of an artist on the ascendant but on the evidence here Astrid is not to be counted out. Indeed, together with her old band's album 'Rooms' there is a case to be made that Williamson is the greatest female singer/songwriter to emerge in the 90s, one whose reputation amongst her contemporaries can only continue to improve."
A top class album, to be sure

"Well, where to begin. I suppose I'll keep it short, no-one wants to read 1000 words, do they? :)This album is great. Breezy and poppy in places, with strong melodies, individual songs, cutting lyrics, great production, and the best thing of all: Astrid's voice. It has its own character- very distinctive, and eminently listenable. The album ranges in subject and style, some tracks being quite dark in content while others are bright. The secret track is probably my favourite- it's a very personal song, just Astrid and her piano. It's a wistful song, and the emotion is tangible.The album itself isn't huge (certainly nowhere near Alanis' last epic!), but there is enough substance there to provide great value. There are good sleeve notes, a great cover, and now there is a fan web presence too. Basically, this is a great album. Check my page for a load of reviews, if I don't sway you. Following me should be a load more reviews- they should sway you too :)Thanks for reading, I hope you buy the album."

"You don't need a thousand words to review this album, its great full of all the elements of great music. I actually spent a a little time with Astrid at school back in the eightys, she hasn't changed she looks the same,amazing. What can you say about this album, its the inspiration to get out of bed in the morning, when you listen you begin to wish that you to had, had a career in music because its a beautiful creation. Occasional some albums stay with you forever, this is one of them. All the best Astrid"
