    Her partnership with Sigsworth is a fine, even seamless fit, making this consistent, and satisfying, top to bottom.

    Despite initial concerns, Moyet’s presence gains stature and confidence as the minutes progresses, with Sigsworth’s production and her vocal eventually working together ever so well.

    Sigworth is Moyet's musical soulmate and this is her best LP in decades. [Jun 2013, p.103]

    As a whole, it’s a total trip into Moyet-land, containing moments of curiosity and wonder, Guy Sigsworth as the Hatter pulling the singer to new places with inventive and unusual programming.

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.
