DIGITAL SPY REVIEW 4/5:
Mica, Caron and Beverley might have been blessed with stronger soul voices – in the Aretha-style “I Am Woman Hear Me Roar!” sense, at least – but Louise Gabrielle Bobb has managed to trump every one of her Brit-soul contemporaries. Her strong, easily-relatable songs, amiable stage performances and ability to sing about heartbreak in a dignified, unostentatious manner have gifted her an enviable CV: ten top ten hits, eight platinum discs and a pair of shiny Brit awards isn’t bad going for a singer who was frequently told she didn’t “fit the normal stereotype” for chart success. And no-one’s ever rocked an eyepatch quite like her.But, after the relative failure of 2004’s Play To Win, the Hackney-born warbler was forced to regroup. The result? Always, her fifth studio album, is the most innately Gabrielle record of her career. After a tussle with a ‘Heartbreaker’, she ekes out ‘Every Little Teardrop’, tells herself ‘I’m Not In Love’ and begins to get ‘Wiser’. Then, after a ‘Cold Sober Moment’, she finally attains that elusive feeling she’s been striving for in the pit of her stomach: ‘Closure’. Well, thank goodness for that! But, whatever Always might lack in lyrical innovation, it more than makes up for in class, warmth and good old-fashioned song-craft. The smooth, dreamy soul-pop of ‘I Remember’ is reminiscent of mid-seventies Diana Ross, especially in Gabrielle’s spoken word overdubs, while the Motown redux of ‘Love Me Like You Do’ – all melodramatic strings, pile-driving piano chords and swooning pop melodies – gives Gabrielle the chance to show off her upper register. ‘Every Little Teardrop’, meanwhile, is a Philly soul pastiche every bit as convincing as Lenny Kravitz’s ‘It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over’. And then there’s ‘Heartbreaker’, on which Gabrielle does her wronged woman act over the gospel-rock backing track from Primal Scream’s ‘Rocks’. With its stomping drum beat, ringing guitar riffs and Gabrielle’s wounded cries of “Take a piece of my heart”, it’s the aural equivalent of being dumped by that absolute bastard you’ve been wasting your time with for God knows how long, getting hopelessly drunk at the pub round the corner and then falling into the dustbins on the way home. Gabrielle’s bruised, pleading vocal suggests she’s no stranger to the experience.Always isn’t without its faults – ‘All I Want’ slips uncomfortably into eighties wine bar territory, and there are one too many mid-tempo acoustic soul jams in its final stretch – but it does show why, before Amy Winehouse and her “ickle carpet burns” came along, Gabrielle was able to reign supreme as the UK music scene’s unimpeachable queen of heartache.

REVIEW:
Since her maiden single, “Dreams”, debuted at No. 1 in 1997, Gabrielle has gone from strength to strength releasing a string of soulful hits–as featured on this compilation. From the tearjerker “Out of Reach” (from Bridget Jones’s Diary) to her recent Top 10 hit “Don’t Need the Sun to Shine (To Make Me Smile)” and her fantastic cover of the Dionne Warwick classic “Walk On By”, Gabrielle opts for deeply felt music which, she has admitted, often reflects on her own life. Also included in this selection is “If You Ever” (featuring E17) and the wonderfully positive “Rise” taken from the album of the same name which heralded her re-establishment as one of the UK’s most successful singer/songwriters. –Norma Powell

ALL MUSIC REVIEW 4.5/5:
Oftentimes, U.K. chart success does not necessarily mean stateside success, as is evident with artists such as Kylie Minogue, Cliff Richard, Simply Red, Robbie Williams, and, in this case, the warm-voiced, anti-diva British soul/pop singer/songwriter Gabrielle, the recipient of 1997’s Brit Award for Best British Female Vocalist. Gabrielle scored with an amazing run of hits in Europe, but only one true hit in the U.S. with “Dreams.” All of her charted singles are assembled on Dreams Can Come True: Greatest Hits, Vol. 1, a fantastic collection of truly timeless, fad-free music — upbeat, positive songs which could have been hits 30 years before this album’s release and will sound just as good 30 years later. Included is her signature hit, “Dreams,” and her other U.K. chart-topper, 2000’s feel-good anthem “Rise.” All of her Top Ten U.K. hits are represented, including the nostalgic, Motown-tinged “Going Nowhere” and “When a Woman,” the Burt Bacharach-ish “Give Me a Little More Time,” the ballad duet with East 17″If You Ever” (originally a massive stateside hit for ’90s American vocal quartet Shai), her stellar remake of Dionne Warwick’s “Walk on By,” and the funky “Sunshine.” Another standout is the gorgeous melancholy ballad “Should I Stay,” which wasn’t as big a hit as the aforementioned singles. Three new songs are thrown into the mix, those being the lovely “Out of Reach” (from the film Bridget Jones’ Diary), the single “Don’t Need the Sun to Shine,” and the ballad “If I Walked Away.” Buyers beware, however, because certain pressings of this album do not include “Walk on By” and the soul-lite of “I Wish,” which was actually a minor U.S. hit (and her follow-up to “Dreams”). From start to finish, Dreams Can Come True is a completely accurate representation of Gabrielle’s successful career, and truly brings to light just how much great music the U.S.A. has been missing out on.

In Her Own Words (Interview with Gabrielle)

2000 – Rise Underground

March 3, 2000

Gabrielle’s ‘Rise Underground’ – a UK garage version of the million selling ‘Rise’ album mixed by DJ Goodfella – is out now. The idea for the album came after the first two singles, ‘Sunshine’ and ‘Rise’, were remixed by Wookie and Artful Dodger respectively. As UK garage worked so well with Gabrielle’s anti-diva vocals other remixers/producers started calling wanting to work with her – Stanton Warriors, Zed Bias and M-Dubs to name a few. After shifting more than 10,000 copies on vinyl last year, the CD was compiled due to overwhelming demand. – Gabrielle.co.uk

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

All Music Album Review 4/5
Gabrielle’s eponymous second album isn’t all that dissimiliar from her debut Find Your Way. It’s still the same mix of appealingly lightweight pop, urban soul and Eurotrash disco that made the debut a success, and it still has the same ratio of winners to clunkers. So, there’s not much different at all, but that’s not bad, because the singles, including “Give Me a Little More Time,” are fine pop concotions that make Gabrielle a frothy, guilty pleasure.
