Imelda's smokey, sultry voice was a breath of fresh air the first time I heard 'Johnny's Got A Boom Boom'. I wish I could find a female vocalist with this strong a voice for my band! Imelda May seems to really enjoy the music she sings and the company she keeps on stage and in the studio.
Love Tattoo has a good smattering of styles, all with a touch of vintage to them. It's a good touch too. There are some slower songs which Imelda does great credit to and the higher tempo stuff that really gets me going every time they come around on the old iPod! It's a well produced album that everyone in my family enjoys!
I'm in my early 40's and when my oldest daughter looked at my wish list for gift ideas, her first response was, "Oh. I love Imelda May" The rest of my kids know who she is and love her music too/
My only regret was not discovering her earlier.
The rest of this CD is as good as the tracks NPR played on air.
This is May's debut album. It's on the Verve label, which has a long history of releasing top jazz artists. May has the talent to take her into the same league as some of Verve's other female vocalists; she's definitely a new artist to watch.
May's music is a combination of 1950s jazz and rockabilly. Judging by the album photos and her comments on NPR, she's cultivating the 1950s image. The album photos show her sporting a very 50s hairstyle, a leopard spot top and tight fitting capri pants. All very 1950s.
Although she's too young to have been around in the 1950s, she manages to pull off the 1950s style and sound really well, while adding her own twist to them. This is a new artist who should have an interesting career.
Starting with "Johnny Got A Boom Boom" with it's kicking beat and reverb spilling over was a real treat and the same goes for "Big Bad Handsome Man." And then on to the dark magic of "Got your Voodoo Working," this is a fine, fun album. Sorry, I mean CD. What i'm saying is it's got that vinyl feel to it.
The only tune I wasn't crazy about was "Smokers Song." A little too frenetic and the chorus...
I was very pleasantly surprised by the slow tunes they do. Torchy without being saccharine and it seems like she just believes in each word and every note. It'll be interesting to see how she follow this.

Apparently there's entirely too much cool for one person to bear in this recording. And it's addicting. So consider yourself warned. This cd alternately swings and seduces. Read morePublished 1 month ago by W. K. Gray
