Siobhan Donaghy: Ghosts
Nick Southall, Stylus, 2 July 2007
EX-SUGABABES are in danger of becoming as plentiful as ex-members of the Fall, but Siobhan Donaghy, the waif-like, flame-haired original member of the sassy trio, ought to stand more than a passing chance of achieving something outside of the group. Four years ago she released a debut solo album which suggested serious potential in her young voice for vulnerable, gossamer pop, but the intervening time has allowed perhaps only four songs from that set to remain impressive. Ghosts, her second outing, takes further steps towards transforming her from chrysalis to butterfly, but it's still not nearly enough.
