Tanita Tikaram is back with a collection of beguiling and rewarding new songs, entitled, 'Sentimental'. The album features 10 new songs and a unique vocal ollaboration with Nick Lowe who sings on two of the tracks. The songs were all recorded in an ensemble fashion, with all musicians playing as a band. This alone lends a distinct warmth to the recordings, almost a small club live sound. The arrangements are sparse and simple, and beautifully executed; I don't think Tanita's voice has ever been this lovingly underscored by the instrumentation on any of her previous releases. A wonderful choice.
