Format: Audio CD
I admit straight out that my Irish music tastes differ from Cherish the Ladies towards less accessible, rawer sounding tunes, so please keep this in mind when rating my review's helpfulness. I try to be helpful, by showing you where this recording falls into the traditional genre as well as the many points where it seeks to depart from the Celtic sounds that have earlier dominated much of Heidi Talbot's work on disc.

The second solo album from the former lead singer of Irish-American ensemble Cherish the Ladies mixes contemporary folk with traditional tunes. John Doyle, ex-guitarist from Sólas, Eddi Reader, ex-singer from Fairground Attraction, Mike McGoldrick, flute and whistle player, and most of all veteran fiddler John McCusker deepen the influences that blend radio-friendly, vaguely world-beat, singer-songwriter tunes with those rooted in Celtic styles. Her voice shows polish, without drawing undue attention to itself. She chooses pleasant songs for the pop entries. These in their arrangements opt often for a more accessible, less traditional framework. This may demonstrate her wish to break free of the trad repertoire in the same way that many female, former lead singers of Irish groups have done in the past couple of decades internationally.

After a few songs that favor the pop approach to respectable if not rousing results, an eclectic version of Bedlam Boys energizes the track selection. A lilting Music Tree shows the blend of African with British pop to good effect, and Talbot improves upon Tom Waits' song Time.

Solo albums naturally explore and push boundaries that exist by default within the context of a group. But the audience may change along the way. Heidi Talbot, plaintively sweet Kildare vocalist from traditional band Cherish The Ladies, has released a second solo album, produced by Boo Hewerdine, that like her debut Distant Future, has around 25% traditional and 75% contemporary songs by songwriters like Tom Waits, Tim O'Brien and Boo Hewerdine.

Heidi reminds me of Cara Dillon who made a transition, not a successful one in my opinion, from traditional to contemporary. Heidi's Distant Future tended to retain a Celtic folk feel throughout, whether traditional or contemporary. On In Love + Light she is edging a little further into pop, and the difference between the traditional and contemporary numbers this time is perhaps more obvious. Traditionalists will savour Bedlam Boys, Glenlogie and Blackest Crow, all plainly reminiscent of Heidi's work with Cherish The Ladies - one is easily drawn into the narrative by the seductive singing, and on Blackest Crow the addition of Kris Drever's voice is pure delight. The other songs are amiable enough, but mostly not as powerful or memorable. Simon Bruce and Tim Schumacher's If You Stay is a sweet light love song, J. Clifford's Cathedrals rolls along and along, Tom Waits' Time is a lovely bittersweet song on reminiscing, Boo Hewerdine's Invisible and the evergreen Ink Spots hit Whispering Grass are cute and jazzy while both Hewerdine's up-tempo Everything and Tim O'Brien's bouncy Music Tree are warm and catchy.

The list of session musos is larger this time.

When I first heard Talbot, I thought I was listening to Kate Rusby: she's got the same beautiful, breathy kind of vocals, and the material is similar. (So's her husband... she's now with Rusby's ex, John McCusker.)

I won't say the music isn't original, but some of the songs had me saying, "Gee, that sounds like... that... that... damn, what song is that?" Fortunately, if she's borrowing a little too heavily, she's borrowing from the best because the result is very strong.

The highlight for me is her cover of Tom Waits' "Time". One of his most beautiful ballads, it hasn't gotten the attention it deserves, and her rendition is absolutely first-rate.
