Biography

Between 1984 and 1987, Alison Moyet toured the world, won two BRIT Awards, and performed at Live Aid in 1985. Her next album, Raindancing (1987), earned the singer a third BRIT Award and brought her to the U.S. for the first time as a solo per¬former. Hoodoo (1991) and Essex (1994) found Alison taking her music in an earth¬ier, less pop-friendly direction. But "It Won't Be ... Read more in Amazon's Alison Moyet Store

Four years after her smash hit cover of Ketty Lester's "Love Letters", Alison Moyet heralded the release of her "Hoodoo" album with the searing "It Won't Be Long." It might have earned a Grammy nomination and critical kudos but it scared the bejaysus out of inane pop-pickers on playlist panels. So much so, in fact, that the two subsequent (and more commercial) A-sides from this set would be utterly sidelined.
Alison Moyet had clearly found her voice and a clear artistic vision. "Hoodoo" at once embraced her soulful roots, her pop sensibilities, a taste for shouty blues/rock and her unrivalled talent for smoky chanson. "Footsteps," with its soulful horn section and superglue hooks, slinkily opens proceedings before "It Won't Be Long" comes along to strip emotional paint. Next is the jewel in this album's crown, the hauntingly beautiful "This House." Imbued with longing and loss, it never once falters into saccharine balladry and its failure to become a global smash remains a mystery. It remains one of the very finest songs of Moyet's career. Elsewhere, the lilting "Wishing You Were Here," the skittering electro-reggae of the gorgeous "Back Where I Belong" and the strident pizzazz of the funky title track keep the standard at a very satisfying high.

Overall, "Hoodoo" is a very dark album. The feminist call-to-arms of "Rise" is bedded in a swampy arrangement and "My Right A.R.M." is a dense mood-piece. Closing the album is the gospel tinged "Find Me," which has `modern standard' written all over it.
It is a mark of this album's strength that, all these years later, it still packs a punch. True, some of the arrangements and production are `of their time' (`Never Too Late,' for instance) but the quality of the performances and the writing remains awe-inspiring. It is fair to say that the real Alison Moyet emerged with the release of this album. She found her voice and started to use it in fine style.

This is one of the best albums of all time. It's masterfully produced and it goes to show how someone can turn their struggle into beautiful art. She was going through a divorce while creating the album. You can see sorrow, cynicism, hope, joy, and revelation in her lyrics, which are then offered on the platter of her AMAZING vocals. Few artists have the weighty presence she does, which can't be ignored. These are the songs that joyfully stick in your head, making you wish you had the cd nearby. It's everything it should be--cathartic, inspirational, and energizing. For God's sake! Buy the album!!!!

This cd is my first pick of must haves. "Alf" can pack more of an emotional whallop in one lyric than any of the "divas" of today could put in to an entire album. If you enjoy a deep voiced, powerful female vocalist, you are going to LOVE Alison Moyet and this, of all her albums, is the BEST. She belts out this emotional roller coster with such passion she will haunt your cd player for years. Unlike her following solo releases, this one is soulfully earthy and mostly accoustic sounding. Very different from her electronica albums. ( not that they're bad, just different) Try it, you're gonna fall in love.

This was Alison Moyet singing from the bottom of her heart (with joy and sadness). Before "Hometime" 2002 and the highly underrated "Essex" 1994, there was "Hoodoo" (1991). Alison and her producer and writing partner Pete Glenister, really made some great music here! The will to power of "This House", "My Right A.R.M." (where Alison demonstrated an inner spiritual voice), the tribute to gospel and soul of "Find Me". I don't know what half of her so-called fans were harping about. This was a fine album, by an artist who would not compromise her creative and artistic integrity to the dictates of the record industry! Some of her best work. Including "It Won't Be Long", "Wishing You Were Here", the excellent title track "Hoodoo", "Back Where I Belong". Great production value all around. Buy it, you won't regret it. I also love the front-cover photo of Alison, it would make an excellent poster.

Love and Peace,
Carlos Romero

After two glossy pop albums that established her as a solo star in Britain, if not in the US, Alison Moyet realeased "Hoodoo" in 1991. It is a magnificent album. Moyet is a great, great singer and has tried her hand at a surprising range of styles (from technopop to jazz to Brel to opera over the years)--but her best singing is on the blues-inflected pop showcased on this album. "This House" is a stunning, emotional, gut-wrenching story of a relationship falling apart--and proves that Moyet is as good a songwriter as singer. It is one of many highlights on the album.

This LP is a favorite of mine. I saw Alison LIVE at Bogart's in Cincinnati Ohio just after the release of "Essex" and I was still banging to this release. Her voice is in great form on every track. It feels, to me, that Alison is more at "home" within these lyrics and vibes. Her voice emits a freedom that wasn't there within "Raindancing". It seems she has control and is fine within it's arms. A Grammy nomination came out of this collection as well. Deny her voice, deny music.
