Title - 'Wash U Clean'
Artist - Beth Thornley

Beth Thornley's self-titled debut album was self-released in 2003, her sophomore album, 'My Glass Eye' some three years on, and now, keeping the usually distance between releases, today we get 'Wash U Clean.'

The first song, and title track include a wicked saxophone solo come the mid-section, and as much as Thornley doesn't exactly kick off her new album in typical style, it is definitely a catchy one. And sure there are some slower songs - such as 'Still Canít Hide,' 'Never Your Girl,' and the truly melancholy tones of 'What The Heart Wants' - the melodic 'Everyone Falls' is a stand-out track for me; if nobody else in the office. Opening with Thornleyís beautiful, calming voice and the piano, it's a lighter tinkle at said instrument than, say, 'Itís Me.'

Bringing the whole album to a grand finale, the last track is 'A To Z,' which fairly bounces along, its arrangement just perfect, although (in truth) I actually wanted more tracks to spring forth - hidden ones, yeah, that would have been cool!
