Format: Audio CD
Gabrielle was born Louise Bobb in Hackney, East London, 31 years ago. She had a lazy eyelid, and even after two operations she still wears dark glasses in public. These have the effect of making her look like a glam R&B star (which she is), but her reason for wearing them is so she can be herself, unhampered by crippling self-consciousness.
While her voice is a soaring instrument, it is technically limited. However, it is slinky and feline and, crucially, in the best pop-soul tradition, it has the ability to turn a cliche into a profound truth, to lift the listener into a mellow orbit.
She is Britain's queen of soul and has come a long way since 1993, when as a gawky singer-songwriter her debut single Dreams went from club classic to number one.
The platinum-selling first album earned her a best newcomer Brit award, and over the next few years there was a generous crop of top-10 hits.
She released Rise at the end of 1999. It elevated her into stratospheric success, producing three more top-10 hits and a collection of awards that include two Brits, a Grammy and a Mobo.
There's the autobiographical streak in her work, she has had extraordinary and traumatic experiences and emotional tribulations which inspired her.
This is the reason why at heart she seems like an ordinary girl with a bit of real 'Lady Sings the Blues' life thrown in. And it's this combination that saved her. In the end, it's her humanity, the fact that she's not goddess-perfect, which makes her so endearing as a star.

She has been making music in the UK for years and never broke here. This album is true brilliance! Gabrielle has evolved and matured after each successive album. The opening track hits hard with a punch. Its bright and light and happy. This album will not dissappoint.

Gabrielle never lacked honesty in her lyrics, and although they are great on each album of hers, on ALWAYS, they come together along with the music in an understated emotional truth as never before. I have listened to this album for about a year, and one does not get tired of it. Nowdays, it is rare not to have to push the skip button. I don't have to when listening to this recording.
