Originally released in 1999, this pivotal album in her career is the moment when Eleanor McEvoy moves from a band format to a singular creation and vision of her own music.
Says McEvoy, "It was getting more than a little frustrating being just a member
of a band that happened to carry my name. I felt a need to take charge of my
music and create it in the way I wanted it to go."
Recorded in a chateau in France and in the amazing "Victorian/Modernist
architectural clash" that is Metropolis studios in London, this is her most
structural musical endeavor.
The album is best known for the YouTube hit "Sophie", the mini drama "Did You
Tell Him?", the pure velvet of "Wrapping Me Up in Luxury", the ode to
slaughtered Irish journalist Veronica Guerin "Easy to Lose Hope" and the
wonderful tongue in cheek country of "Please Heart, You're Killing Me".
