    It's a nice album. She has a sweet voice. I like her okay.

    But there's no gravel in her gut nor spit in her eye.
    I don't doubt she feels the songs but her voice is lightweight.

    In contrast when Billie Holiday or Marianne Faithful open
    their mouths you know they've been through something.

    This is the first record of I thought of when reading the thread title, an absolutely gorgeous album, if you like "late night records" and your not familiar with The Blue Nile then deprive yourself no longer...

    "From a late night train"

    Im a huge fan of "late night records", there's been some great suggestions here thanks everyone! (I could have won the lotto and Id still rather hear melancholy music)
