Music Review: Alison Moyet - Other

She’s one of the greatest female singers ever to come out of the U.K. Six years before Adele was born, Alison Moyet was topping the charts with electropop duo Yaz. Blessed with a bluesy, soulful voice, Moyet went on to a highly successful solo career, exploring new styles with hits songs, including “All Cried Out” and “Invisible,” while selling over 23 million albums. A mother of three, the Grammy-nominated singer returned to her electronica roots with 2013’s excellent The Minutes. Working again with producer Guy Sigsworth (Björk, Madonna), Moyet continues making adventurous music on her ninth studio album. Some of the songs, like “Reassuring Pinches,” recall the meaningful electropop of “Only You,” while the title track is a stark, confessional piano ballad. She celebrates diversity on “The Rarest Birds” and plays with grammar on “The English U,” featuring sweeping strings and background vocals from her daughter Alex. Charting her own course as always, Moyet remains refreshingly original.
