Alison Moyet - Hometime (2002) Retail CD
Adult Alternative Pop/ Rock
"Nothing's cold as yesterday's flame", opines Alison Moyet on the opening number of Hometime, the first album from the mature pop/blues singer and Yazoo founder in eight years. Indeed, although once a force to be reckoned with in the 1980s, (1995's career-retrospective Singles duly reached Number 1 in the UK album charts), there seems to be little commercial elbow room for female artists these days. That said, despite lengthy bouts of hibernation through family commitments and loss of self-confidence ("If you're heart isn't in it, pull away and start again" is the very first, rather confessionalmore…, line on the album), Moyet is a hardy dame and Hometime is a belated but nevertheless welcome return to the soulful pop stridency and sad, blues-hued tunesmithery at which she excels. Featuring eight songs cowritten with guitarist Pete Glenister, a further two from singer and musician Carlton McCarthy plus subtle dance textures from Massive Attack collaborators The Insects, this is largely excellent and rationally contemporary stuff--"Should I Feel That It's Over" offers the oestrogen equivalent of David Bowie style pop and Moyet's best vocal performance in years while "Do you Ever Wonder?" is conceivably what Dusty Springfield could have sounded like today. The album's one red herring and unexpected delight is the magical, sinister-toned neo-psych-folk of "Mary, Don't Keep Me Waiting", all staccato con brio fiddles, acoustic guitar, dreamy flutes, a backwards electric guitar solo redolent of Richard Thompson and something or other about finding comfort in trees. --Kevin Maidment
