Finley Quaye – Much More Than Much Love

Tricky customer is young Finley. Aloof, enigmatic, prone to periods of going AWOL, his ability to throw up a high-grade smoke screen to disguise his undoubted talents may have worn all patience thin. Still, he’s got that voice and knows how to wrench sympathetic performances from a supporting cast of Anglo-African players. Quaye’s usual blend of dub reggae, the lightest hip hop and a new shot of weird country are stretched under his often oddball lyrics and idiosyncratic world view. “This Is How I Feel” and “Face To Face” exemplify Fin’s rather unique house style and elusive personality. No change there, then.
