Imogen Heap - EllipseHer voice is familiar due to the presence of “Hide and Seek” on bandwidths and airwaves everywhere, most notably on TV’s The OC and YouTube, with more than seven million views. While there’s nothing as immediately distinctive as that electro-yodeling 2005 single, the British singer’s third solo album does offer a feast of aural delights, especially on the pulsing “First Train Home,” the breathy “Tidal” and the anthemic “Earth,” in which Imogen’s voice provides a sweet melody and some wildly compelling rhythms.
