Alison Moyet is back, back, back!

Well, soko*.

BIG Alison Moyet fan I is. All of her CD’s have been a delight, none more so than the past three: Hometime, Voice and The Turn. If you’ve forgotten how good her soft and dreamy caramel tinged voice tastes I suggest giving the previews a flick through and remember days in the 80’s when it seemed like she would take over the world with Alf and Raindancing and so on.

Aaaanyhow: October (I think?) sees the release of a best of CD backed by a second disc of new cuts of classic tracks. Guess which disc is the one I’m buying it for?

The CD cover artwork is also very cool, from a design perspective also:

The photo was originally released in black and white and, while very moody, I’d have held it up as a nearly there image (although at the moment I can’t find it so it’s a nearly where? image) because the contrast of the left hand side of the picture was overwhelmed by the contrast on her hand on the right. A great picture for sure but slightly unbalanced.

Not so this colour version. Beautifully balanced the shine on her hair on the left hand side balances the picture drawing the viewers eye to AM’s eyes. I’ll be using the pic when I teach eyeflow with the A2 students in the next couple of weeks in fact. Ace image and CANNOT wait to catch the cd and possibly the gig in December.

*sort of kind of.
