Corinne Bailey Rae: Corinne Bailey Rae

Although Corinne received a lot of press at the beginning of the year proclaiming her to be the new sound of 2006, the album is actually a timeless soul and jazz classic that could really have been released in any of the last 50 or next 50 years without sounding out of place. Beautiful sad, lonely, and passionate. Most reviewers’ favourite comparison is with Billie Holiday and I probably wouldn’t argue too much.
