Claire Martin - Perfect Alibi - Yorkshire Post

22 September 2008
Yorkshire Post
Andrew Vine

You can't have too much of a good thing, and this reissue of Martin's crossover album from 2000 is a perfect partner to "The Early Years Anthology". Long before the likes of Norah Jones and Katie Melua came on the scene, Martin was exploring material by the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Laura Nyro, and the results remain superb. Martin's rich voice lights up these songs and in the company of a larger-than-usual band, she makes the material her own. It never tips over into pop or easy-listening, and it's all the better for it. "Perfect Alibi" remains one of Martin's best records.
