Q Magazine review Director’s Cut: “Succeeds….by thrusting some of her most powerful songs back into the limelight.”

The June issue of Q Magazine (out in May) features a four-star review of Director’s Cut by Paul Moody.

“…even for this most unpredictable of artists, the follow-up to 2005’s Aerial is a creative curveball. A reworking of 11 tracks from 1989’s The Sensual World and The Red Shoes, each with a brand new vocal, it seems a curious move for an artist who has made a virtue of never looking back (her solitary greatest hits album, The Whole Story, was released in 1986). Director’s Cut succeeds, however, by axing the star cameos (The Red Shoes originally included contributions from Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Nigel Kennedy) and thrusting some of her most powerful songs back into the spotlight.” (thanks to Louise and Menju56 on our forum)

    Uncut magazine has also given Director’s Cut four stars.

  4. Uncut? Is that Graeme Thomson’s review?

    @ARoseGrowingOld. The Uncut review is not by Graeme Thomson. His review will be in the next issue of The Word magazine, out in early May.
