I’ve reviewed some Colleen albums before, but this release promised something that none of the previous releases have delivered – a voice! Purely and simply, and for obvious reasons, ‘The Weighing Of The Heart’ is a distinct departure. Notwithstanding this fact, it doesn’t disappoint. Why on earth it has taken Colleen this long to commit her voice to record is a mystery, but commit it, she has. The trademark archaic, organic washes and soundscapes haven’t altogether disappeared, but have been made sense of by the songs that force the ambience (willingly I might add) into structure. Structure is, of course, a relative term… bear in mind this isn’t a Katy Perry record.
