Re: NEW ALBUM: Sophie Ellis Bextor - Trip The Light Fantastic

'Catch You' was a bit of a let-down for me, but fortunately, there are some great songs on this album

Fav songs:

'Me and my imagination'
'If you go'
'New flame'
and the unconvential yet brilliant 'China Heart'

Re: NEW ALBUM: Sophie Ellis Bextor - Trip The Light Fantastic

I don't think her second album made it over here to us and I liked her first one.

This probably won't make it over here either but I will look for it.

I wonder why she keeps using old cliches for album titles though. "Read My Lips," "Shoot From the Hip," and now, "Trip the Light Fantastic?"

Since September 2002:
33 singles titles
33 doubles titles
7 mixed doubles titles
7 Fed Cup titles

Debut record: 14 out of 24

Re: NEW ALBUM: Sophie Ellis Bextor - Trip The Light Fantastic

This album takes a couple of listens to get into but it really is a bit of a gem. Glad to see that it's looking like making a top 10 debut in the UK on Sunday.

Re: NEW ALBUM: Sophie Ellis Bextor - Trip The Light Fantastic

The album entered the UK chart at #7. I'm sure Sophie breathed a sigh of relief to go top 10.

Re: NEW ALBUM: Sophie Ellis Bextor - Trip The Light Fantastic

I know, poor bump after a long while, but the album was released in Australia just a bit over a week ago. I had it downloaded beforehand but didn't give it a serious listen until a week ago.

It's a fantastic album, a lot of the songs take a few listens before you get into them. All single tracks have been great (pity only Catch You is released in Australia) and I love the album tracks If I Can't Dance, China Heart, Love Is Here, and Only One is quite fun.

She spent a lot of time making this album and it's paid off. I definitely see this album as one of my favourites of 2007 when the year draws to an end.

She is touring the album in the UK! Lucky Brits! There are rumours that there might be a Europe, Asia and Australian tour, but who knows. I'd love for her to come down under.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?

Re: NEW ALBUM: Sophie Ellis Bextor - Trip The Light Fantastic

Oh I have been banging on about this album for months. Not a huge fan of hers but this album is actually brilliant, there is not a single bad track on it.

Also people in the UK need to download or buy her new single Today The Sun Shines On Us, not just for the Aside, but for the Bside a fantastic cover of Properganda's 1985 hit 'Duel'.
