Album Review: Deeper by Lisa Stansfield

I was a big Lisa Stansfield fan back in 1992. Real Love for me is an all time favorite and was an important part of my life that year. By the time she came out with her fifth album in 2001 I had moved on and this is the first album I've listened to since 1997. It's her eighth album and I must say I'm a bit disappointed that the sound is pretty much the same as it was in 1989. It's a solid sound and she still has a strong voice at 52 but I was hoping for something that lyrically and musically would be a bit more challenging and mature. Not that at 52 you aren't still obsessed with love and romance but not quite the same as it was at 25 when she put out Real Love.

Following the Rhapsody rating method I give it 2 out of 5 stars for Not Bad. She delivers a solid set of songs and gives a good vocal performance across the album. If you're a fan you won't be disappointed. It just feels a bit shallow to me. Wish there was more there. Maybe I should have given Tracey Thorn more stars.
