avThe record which revisits songs from the past twenty years is a real showcase EP which demonstrates an array of different styles of music that Taylor has tried her hand at.
The sparse production of ‘Rediscovered’ gives Taylor’s raw vocals and songwriting room to take centre stage. The arrangement of the opening track Woman I Used To Be helps to build tension. The fan favourite has a touch of the blues as the angst of the song bubbles under the surface. First Kiss has a jazz element to it. Taylor’s smooth vocals are brought up in the mix and the addition of a solo saxophone in the chorus gives me goosebumps. The backing vocal harmonies take it to the next level. The acoustic country twang of Watch Me Hurt deals with heartbreak whilst Maybe concludes the album on a more positive country-pop vibe.
It’s an eclectic collection of songs, some of which were first released back in 2004. Loyal fans will be delighted to hear some of these songs again as Dulcie Taylor rediscovers the stories behind them.
