Who I Am
Alice Peacock's third record arrives in balmy summer and it's a warm-sounding record, from the vocals to the sophisticated arrangements. "Baby Come Back" recalls early Sheryl Crow or perhaps Aimee Mann. Its catchy chorus and stirring arrangement works well.
"Time" is slow and jazzy Peacock's delivery sweetly accentuating the meaningful words. "Taught me Well" manages to pen a lyric of a hellish relationship and still find something meaningful about it. It's musically reminiscent of the seventies singer/songwriter era. "I'm Still Here" shows off the singer's gorgeous vocal and talent for subtle melodies. This contemporary answer to "You've Got a Friend" should appeal to many. Peacock's new record is the work of a mature artist at the peak of her powers.
