The Chimes: The Chimes (CBS)
Paul Lester, Melody Maker, 16 June 1990
MIKE PEDEN and James Locke have a canny knack for making Gaelic soul sound intuitive. It helps to have a singer like Pauline Henry, of course. She's a Londoner with a vocal range wider that most oceans and a divine internal logic-system that tells her exactly when to open ardour's sluice-gates, and when to apply a bit of self-control to the proceedings.
