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

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?"

I like her new single. Much better than the 1st off this album, might download that song.

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.

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

The album seems well, I really love "Catch you" - it is a great song IMO....tomorrow I'm in the city, maybe I will buy it :lol: ;)

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.

She's alright, I'll probably check it out since I kinda like her new single.

Aug 9th, 2007, 07:22 PM

My fave one lmao.

Hey,I saw one thread about Sophie not too long ago(3/4 weeks ago?).
And since then,I love her very much.I also like her accent.:D

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'.

Mmm I bought Me & My Imagination and Today The Sun's On Us from Amazon UK, it cost quite a lot because of shipping. :(

What song is the hit from her new album? Sorry I don't keep up with her music but I liked Take Me Home a lot (I have an mp3 of it).

This is a terrific album, I only wish that it was getting more attention! It's definitely one of my favourite albums right now, and I feel like this album stands up well in comparison with her first album, Read My Lips. If anything, I think it's probably a more consistent effort, which is nice :)

My personal favourites are 'The Distance Between Us', 'China Heart', 'Can't Have It All', along with the first 2 singles (Catch You, and Me & My Imagination). I'd definitely recommend the album :)

I caught 'Me and My Imagination' one day while we were in Shanghai, and thank god I did because she's basically nonexistent in the U.S.

I really like 'Take Me Home,' 'Catch You'
