Alison MoyetReaching #5 in the UK album chart, Alison Moyet's recent release "The Minutes" was hugely well received, being called 'her best in decades' by Q, 'amazing' by The Quietus and 'a musical resurrection' by The Huffington Post. The accompanying tour was equally lauded, with The Times dubbing it 'triumphant' and the Evening Standard stating 'she's never been better'.

Instead, reworking organic songs into a programmed format rather than the other way around and sparing me the niggling suspicion that I was in danger of inhabiting my own tribute act - which is a relevant consideration when you have been singing some of the songs for 30 something years, and wish still to be engaged.'
