I could listen to 'waiting...' or 'fireproof' on repeat all day without getting bored. So beautiful !

I know all the originals (apart from 2) and I think Heather did a great job. Most covers are better than the originals imho. I love the Buzzcocks and the National (have seen them both live a few times).

I don't like 'waiting ...' by Lou Gramm but I love Heathers version.

And I like most bands she covered (Roxy Music, National, Buzzcocks ...).

Thanks Bernd ! It was a great small festival. Good food, not too crowded. Place to sit or shelter when it rained.

It used to be a New Wave festival, now it's more 80ies but Heather said she's more of an 90ies girl

@ 57 Arietis. After Heathers gig in Ostend she did an interview in her hotel and she said this :

- she has enough new songs of her own
- she recorded acoustic covers at home because she couldn't travel.

Maybe the talk about enough songs of her own was just promo talk or an exaggeration but I'm just quoting her

Btw Heather didn't record this album because she has no new songs of her own (she does) but because she was at home during covid and could not travel to Europe or the Uk to record in a studio, that's why she did it at home.

@57 Arietis : I completely disagree with you. I love all songs apart from Sailing as it's a capella. I think it's a nice pick of songs from different genres. And off course Heathers voice is amazing on all songs.

'Ever fallen in love' sounds like the bossa nova version by Nouvelle Vague.

I'm starting to get into Fragile but I still don't like Sailing.

Waiting for a girl like you is amazing though.

Didier, try Ticketswap. The concert was originally planned in 2020 so I guess a lot of people can't make it on the new date. Or mention it on Facebook (that's how I got my vip-ticket for w-fest for free !) good luck !

I like all songs, apart from Fragile and Sailing. Sailing is without instruments, a capella, which is a bit 'showing off' in my opinion (like Jewel used to do).

Some songs sound different on album than on single (for instance Don't stop believing).

Same for Walk this world ... Not exactly my favourite songs, I had loved to hear 'Waiting for a girl like you' but still, it was great after 3 years of absence ...

At first I had my doubts about Heather playing on this 80ies festival because she didn't really fit in. She also did play very early (second act) and just her and Arnulff on stage. Acoustic gigs often don't work on a festival.

However, the concert was great and the audience loved it.



setlist :

01 maybe an angel
02 london rain
03 rewild me
04 i wanna be your light
05 winterblue
06 like lovers do
07 fragile (sting)
08 sea glass
09 fool for you
10 like a hurricane (neil young)
11 walk this world

I like all the singles off the album I've heard until now, apart from Fragile which is kind of boring. 'Waiting for a girl like you' is pure heaven though.

In my opinion, an acoustic set with only 2 people on stage doesn't work on a festival where most people are no fans or don't know her work. I'm going to see her live anyway in Ostend in August.

It's weird Heather sings at 2 pm while the other bands who play later, the 'main acts' had their best times 20 to 30 years ago... I like Alphaville and Jeanne Mas but it's weird, like a step back for Heather.

I love the National as well but I think this is one of the 'least good' covers by Heather on this album. Well, Heather can sing a manual of a washing machine and it will still sound great, but I prefer 'Waiting for a girl like you'.

Great news : Heather will be playing at the W-festival in Ostend the 26th of june.

W-fest used to be a festival focussing on New Wave music, later switching to 80ies pop music. Adding Heather to the line-up might be odd, but on the other hand her new cd will be full of great 80ies covers. I'll be there. The same day you can see other great bands like Alphaville and Jeanne Mas.

Ordered the vinyl and cd. Too bad there was no download link to the vinyl, so I had to buy the cd as well. 51 including shipping is not cheap. I hope I can have the lp signed without having to pay for a meet and greet. The songs I already heard are great

Yes, it's like a new song, but I like it, as I don't like the original, a typical Stock Aitken Waterman production.

I also like the cello on 'never gonna ...'. I often miss the cello in Heathers music since the departure of Nadia Lanman.

I like it ! It's quite different to the original. When I was a teenager, this was a huge hit, I didn't like it then but it brings back a lot of memories.

Tori's gig in Brussels, planned 9 th of March is postponed to a later date (no new date yet) because of Covid. I feared this would happen...

Well, a lot of bands I follow, do this. You can listen to the lp at home and to the mp3's on your Ipod or in your car (if you don't have Spotify). I have a lot of vinyl but no record player, I only have them to look at, most of them are still in their plastic cover !

@ Gerd : lp + cd together are nearly 40 without shipping ... Why can't she release an lp and give a free mp3 dowload link ?

I also wonder if it is Heather swimming. It probably is her (low budget clip).

It was me who 'suggested' it. Well, I was surprised she didn't change it to 'boy' but now it has an interesting angle. I'm not homophobic or whatever and I like this song.

I'm sure Estelle or Didier are willing to translate it. I'd understand most of it I guess. Must be weird hearing Heather sing in French. What's next ? Singing in German ?
