Deluxe two CD edition includes acoustic bonus tracks. 2012 sophomore album from the British singer/songwriter. Paloma wrote and recorded Fall to Grace in London in 2011/2012. The album is produced by Nellee Hooper (Bjork, No Doubt, Massive Attack, Madonna) along with Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran). Musically, Fall to Grace moves away from the reference points that characterized Paloma's first record such as Etta James and Billie Holiday, guiding her compositions into a new, contemporary realm. Collaborating with songwriters such as Ed Harcourt, Matt Hales (Lianne La Havas), Dan Wilson (Adele), Wayne Hector (Britney, Westlife), and even film score composer David Arnold (countless James Bond films, Independence Day, Narnia), Fall to Grace is sonically varied, but completely cohesive. From the disco throb of 'Blood, Sweat and Tears' and the giddy dance-pulse that runs through 'Agony', to 'Freedom' (produced and co written by Al Shuckburgh), with it's shuffled beats and soaring peaks, Faith's vocals offer bluesy power and reveal husky emotion.

The only good number here is the INXS cover "Never Tear Us Apart."
If you're wondering why she hasn't made it big in the USA, it all boils down to material. Paloma Faith needs a good songwriting partner. She has an eccentric live act in the Chiquita Banana vein, ear-splitting lungs, and nothing to sing. I'm giving it 3 Stars because she is so talented, but with the sole exception of the cover it's 1 Star baloney no MTV pop prima-donna would touch even if blown out on tranquilizers.
Paloma Faith's one genuine hit--"Only Love Can Hurt Like This"--is actually sung in three registers, and she can handle them all. So why is this all monotone mumbling? John Lee Hooker could sing this stuff. Or maybe Astrud Gilberto. I think they only knew two notes between them.
And yeah, I'll buy the next CD to see if the tunes are any better, but I wouldn't bet the farm on it.
This girls voice has the pop sound but the soul behind reaches out to you. Check her out, you wont be disappointed...
There was not one single track I wanted to play again. Didn't even want to waste time or space creating even one MP3 version, or scanning the cover for "album art".
HORRIBLE! This isn't music.
Tossed the CD right out, after removing the inserts from the plastic jewel case... which I saved to re-use.
Complete and absolute waste of money. Save yours, and DO NOT BUY THIS RUBBISH.
