STYLE: Pop RATING OUR PRODUCT CODE: 22405- LABEL: Independent FORMAT: Cassette Album
Reviewed by Chris Berry
A few years ago now an excellent voice, and band for that matter, came out of nowhere, recorded an album that went straight to number four and didn't make another. The band were the Photos, the voice was Wendy Wu. Whilst this album isn't the same, it is at times a sound-alike, quirky-playing distinctive female lead, very easy on the ear, yet definitely rock/pop oriented. Sarah isn't really made for the ballads judging by the offerings here -"Surrendering" and "Your Love". But that staccato stuff gets the message across - "Image Of Love" being a prime example, surely a great number for live play. Kate Bush influences abound. But at times the listener's attention wanders. Let the Americans get hold of this lady's voice and you'd have the right balance. I do hope that isn't the only album this lady ever makes. Good start, needs better production.
