ALBUM REVIEW
Gabrielle’s career has demonstrated a remarkable longevity considering that after 1993s all-conquering “Dreams”, she’s seemed to cater for the few but the fickle city bohemians that have just discovered Massive Attack as “the next happening thing”. It’s not hard to see why, though, because Rise is ultra-slick, impeccably-produced soul-lite. What might come as a surprise is that in its own way, it’s actually very good. A largely weepy album, much of Rise deals with the emotional fallout of a failed love-affair, but through its tears, songs like “Over You” and “When a Woman” offers a girls-against-the-world solace. But as a warm undercurrent, there’s a parent-friendly theme to “Sunshine”, dedicated to Gabrielle’s son, that should see Rise lovingly working its way into a vast number of record collections. –Louis Pattison
