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

5.0 out of 5 stars Utter bliss! September 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Alison Moyet is a singer and songwriter of rare talent and has graced several genres in her career to date. Using her voice almost as an instrument, Alison adds real warmth to three Yaz tracks. Velvety smooth on the Vince Clarke-penned pop gem 'Only You' and her own compostion, 'Nobody's Diary'. Zesty and feisty on 'Situation', a song she co-wrote. I can't think of another singer who could humanise eletronic music in quite the same way. Comparing Alison with, say, Annie Lennox is like comparing velvet with glass.
The middle section of the album covers Alison's first two solo albums ('Alf' and 'Raindancing'). Commercially, this was her heyday and, in the UK, she was feted as the best pop singer around and rightly ruled the UK charts. Artistically, her best work was yet to come and the 90's singles really show the woman off. Her refusal to compromise may have slowed her chart performances a bit but the quality is most definitely there. Listen to 'It Won't Be Long', 'Ode To Boy', 'Falling'.... Gritty, powerhouse vocals over genuinely intelligent lyrics. None of your two-bit Morrissette angst here. We're talking color, verve and imagination. The gorgeous ache of her own composition, 'This House'... The real-world romance of 'Wishing You Were Here'.... Then the campy Broadway disco of 'Whispering Your Name'.... The power in her guitar-led version of 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face' will lift your soul. I'm telling you, this is great stuff!
What ever you do, make sure you get this special edition with the 11-track live CD. Subtitled 'No Overdubs', this bonus collection showcases a REAL singer who can pull an audience along with her no matter what. The sheer beauty of 'Dorothy' and the earthiness of 'Getting Into Something' really deliver the goods.

3.0 out of 5 stars Half Good April 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Alison Moyet is best suited to the studio. The first CD is good, however the second "Live" CD in this collection is too much of a departure from her previously known work. The producer for the second Live CD should be shot & shot again. She clearly deserved better. Her talent is undisputed but it must be harnessed and not allowed to run wild. I look forward to her going back to her earlier commercial success with the YAZ sound. I wish her the best in her future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation November 10, 2004
By Kerrfal
Format:Audio CD
Alison moyet was famous in the mid 80s thanks to the duo-band Yazoo and her following solo-career.

Have to say this compilation is sooooooo brilliant. Firstly, because of her voice. Although I believe she's an underrated singer, she has one of the most deep and soft voice in the female musical scenario.

Secondly, songs are very nice, a mix of pop style with lovely ballands and smash hits like ALL CRIED OUT, RESURRECTION, ALL IS LOVE and many others.

If you like her voice this is the best CD to buy. It is worth the money.

Ciao,

Enrico

4.0 out of 5 stars Singles January 11, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Singles being Moyet compilation and includes songs both during her time with Yazoo and her solo career. Moyet's vocals can be said to be one of the best in the business and she sings with heartfelt conviction. Tracks that standout are situation and love resurrection and invisible. Allmusic gave the album 4.5/5. The book let is very sparse and contains no lyrics, and a few photographs. 4/5.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh My,,,,,, June 21, 2001
Format:Audio CD
,,,this is bad. I must be missing something. I had read several reviews about Moyet's voice, which is decent enough, but the material is indescribably bad. Imagine songs that make the Thompson Twins sound profound and you will be close. Lame techno, syntho, Euro rock. Mine's going straight to the resale bin.
