Billie : Honey to the B
There's a half-decent soul vocal hiding within [B]Billie[/B]'s croon, at least as good, if not better than the likes of [B]Sharleen Spiteri[/B].
and, while slogging through the third mix on this CD ("a trip-hop mix by the totally hip [a]Delakota[/a] posse", to quote the press release. Excuse me, I think I just laughed up a lung), there's nothing particularly pungent about Miss B's latest single. There's something a little disarming about the lengths to which she is straining to sound like a 'proper', 'adult' pop star, but
all the sugar and saccharine piled on top of it, there's a half-decent soul vocal hiding within Billie's croon, at
as good, if not better than the likes of Sharleen Spiteri.
