Eddi Reader: Angels And Electricity (Blanco Y Negro)

Chris Ingham, MOJO, June 1998

EVEN ALLOWING for our response to singing being largely subjective, some voices just do the job, don't they? For me, Eddi Reader is up there with, for instance, Bonnie Raitt and k. d. lang, singers who combine amazing technical control with emotional authority to make their heart-lifting music sound as natural as breathing.
