Songs from This Album
Album Reviews: Corinne Bailey Rae by Corinne Bailey RaeTwenty-six, sexy and already huge in her native England, Corinne Bailey Rae is a fresh new talent. Her debut album, just released in the States, features tight, crisp production, sultry, soulful vocals, and the occasional ass-shaking groove. It should prove equally appealing to American audiences.
Rae combines influences from Billie Holiday to Erykah Badu and winds up sounding like a hipper version of Norah Jones. She's not just a pretty face, either, having co-written all ten tunes here. Her self-titled debut is soulful, downtempo chillout with some pop danceables like "Trouble Sleeping," "Call Me When You Get This," and "I'd Like To." Some of the more mellow tracks tend to be less memorable on initial spins.
Everyone's talking about "Crazy" by Gnarls Barkley as being this year's "Hey Ya!", but once you tire of that track, you'll still be bopping your head to Rae's "Put Your Records On." Get her before Starbucks does. She's going to be this year's Sia. This sweet and salty, peanut-buttery record will go great with your chocolate, whether it's a double mocha latte or...well, use your imagination. - Jeff Kamin
