    Arguably, the album lacks a stand-out killer to take to radio but, by the same token, there’s hardly anything that could be described as filler; it’s a solid and confident collection from a veteran songstress who still has a lot to offer.

    It's a treat to finally hear Moyet stretch herself on a classy and engaging modern collection that's only really let down in places by the santitised electro of one-time Bjork and Robyn producer Guy Sigsworth. [Jun 2013, p.76]

    Bumpy at times, but worth the effort. [Jun 2013, p.92]

Ok I’ve been a fan since her solo debut album “ALF”; which included singles “All Cried Out” and "Love Resurrection". After a couple of listenings to “The Minutes” I fell in love all over again. What a great artist. Well produced with so many hidden musical gems. Lyrics that leave you thinking about life in general; and your own relationships. I myself are very “Happy with you” Alison.
