Tanita Tikaram - Can’t Go Back

by Kevin Wierzbicki

.
Tikaram has probably been feeling a bit left out lately as fellow U.K.-bred acts like Duffy, Adele and the late Amy Winehouse get all the soulful songstress action, but now Tanita is back with her first release in eight years.

Songs like Dust on My Shoes, a Dusty Springfield-like pop tune shows that Tikaram has not lost a step; in fact her newfound interest in a Memphis sound has her sounding stronger than ever. A perfect example is Rock & Roll, ironically not a rock song but a deliciously funky slow-burner that has an ominous overtone thanks to organ parts that sound a bit like those in the spooky Randy Newman song Mama Told Me (Not to Come) as played by Three Dog Night. Fans of Tikaram's big hit Twist in My Sobriety will enjoy the catchy synth pop of Heavy Pressure and the whimsical One Kiss, a duet with Grant Lee Phillips.

The quiet If the World Should Want For Love closes Can't Go Back and while Tikaram may not burn up the charts with this one she clearly reestablishes herself here as one of the finest voices of the genre.
