On her second album, Edinburgh-based singer-songwriter Rosie Nimmo proves as gently persuasive as she was on her debut. Nimmo's versatility is well in evidence, her background in jazz and blues coming to the fore on the sophisticated 'Moonglow Music', whilst the pizzazz of 'Timeclock' sees her inhabiting kooky singer-songwriter territory.

The peak performance, though, comes in the form of 'The End's' drifting atmospherics, an ambitious and darkly brooding composition hallmarked by Nimmo's alluring vocals and sweeping yet understated guitar.

'Listen To Your Own Voice', an insistent acoustic pop-rocker that nods at blues and New Wave influences and offers a sort of crash course in self-analysis is another example of the range and imagination on offer, whilst the shuffling jazz of 'Being a Child Again (In The Snow)' sees her revisiting her youth, echoes here of the stylish vocal elegance of Eddi Reader.

Home is an especially accomplished collection that is particularly difficult to pigeonhole, and that's a good thing.

Steve Caseman.
