The repeats of Top of the Pops that are showing up on BBC Four have reached the early 1990s so you can guarantee a lot of that era showing up on this album adventure. This first one is a random pick, I recognised the opening chords of Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover from Peter Kay’s Car Share, then realised I knew the song, then realised it was pretty good. The rest of the album follows the same pop sounds, with those occasional sweeping chords bursting in. I thought Sophie B might be a one-hit wonder but there are lots of albums that follow so watch this space.

Rating: 3 / 5
