I heard this once and had to have it. Miriam Stockley has a great voice, and they do really interesting things like having a song starting off with a gospel-sounding backup choir, then later it's more African/world pop sounding backup. It's a lush album running the world pop gamet, but well put together so it doesn't sound fractured. I would say it's a showpiece for vocals and one of the few excellent examples of this early '90s form of world pop. (Neile)
Easy Way Out (single)
Wide on release
