Album Review

After five albums, the prolific Ed Harcourt has done enough to earn himself a wee retrospective.

Of course, this isn't for the die-hards, the converted will already be familiar with Harcourt's deft brand of wistful pop, and obligatory new song 'You Put A Spell On Me', as fine as it is, doesn't justify he rest of the record. Rather, this is an effort to gain new fans, and on the evidence of the lovely selections on display, reeling them in shouldn't be too hard.

One things that strikes you as you listen to the album is the versatility of Harcourt's voice, which veers from soulful falsetto (the Redding-esque 'Apple of my Eye') to brittle and fractured croak ('Fireflies Take Flight')

That said, there's not much in the way of musical experimentation, but in this case, that's not such a bad thing. The tracks on offer here are warm and oddly familiar, even to those who haven't heard Harcourt's music before.

Too few solo artists can boast a back catalogue this fine; this collection should serve as a good introduction to Ed Harcourt, and encourage new listeners to go back to some of his rather underrated albums.
