Sorry cover art

Artist: Una Healy
Title: Sorry
Catalogue Number: No catalogue number
Review Format: CD
Release Year: 2006


There is a time when you need to listen to something soothing. This 5 song collection from Una Healy seems to fit the bill nicely. On the slower songs, her voice has a pleasing, ethereal quality that relaxes you. Her lyrics, like so many singer-songwriters these days, cover loves lost and won.


"I Love You" is gentle and reinforces the message that love conquers all. Giving the album variety is "So Long". This is rockier than the other songs on the album and it works well with Ms Healy's voice keeping control over the cranked up backing band.  Curiously enough, the other up-tempo track "Had it with Today" sounds unconvincing by comparison.  The closing song "Raider of My Sleep" is the best track and it sticks nicely in your mind long after hearing it.


It is a rather sweet and endearing collection of songs but whilst we liked this album, we believe that the best is yet to come from Una Healy. The title of this album may be "Sorry" but she has nothing to apologise for.
