Alison Moyet - Singles (1999) Retail CD
Before her rise to fame alongside Vince Clark in Yazoo, Alison "Alf" Moyet had little reason to believe she'd make a living as a pop star. Prior to her sudden baptism as electropop diva, she'd whipped her voice into shape on the tiny blues circuit of Essex; but if Yazoo classics such as "Only You" and "Don't Go" (featured here) worked, it was precisely because of the cold, digital backdrop that Clark had created for Moyet's expressive warmth. In Yazoo this was fine, but a major label solo deal saw Moyet attempting to locate her niche in pop with limited success. By the mid-1990s, she'd even triedmore… her hand at indie--but it's Yazoo and those early solo singles such as "All Cried Out" and "Love Resurrection" that at least, leave room for her to soar. Indeed, as early as Moyet's 1986 set Raindancing (featuring a blonde, airbrushed Moyet gazing uncomfortably into the mid-distance) the plot duly evaporated. Compare such slight material to her biggest solo hit--a faithful rendering of "That Ole Devil Called Love"--and there's the problem in a nutshell: a gifted vocal talent sold short by the quality of her songs. --Peter Paphides
