The Cure - Fairly Good, Based on 2 Critics

The Observer (UK) - 80

T here should be a mutual support organisation for those exes who are the subjects of famous heartbreak albums. Oh, to be a fly on the wall if Adele's ex (aka "Mr 21") broke bread with the object of Sam Smith's unrequited affections, (aka "Mr Lonely Hour"). It would be quite the gathering, if you included people like Britney Spears (the object of Justin Timberlake's Justified LP) or the line-up of Abba.

The Guardian - 60
Based on rating 3/5

I f you're a young British woman with a haunting vocal style, a penchant for stripped-back pop and no record deal, then you're probably the only one. This icy, strangely monochrome-sounding take on pop is enjoying a purple patch, and Stevie Parker is the latest to throw her tasteful and understated hat in the ring. Her debut is an incredibly restrained album, nodding to the driving, infectious melodies and rousing choruses of the chart without ever getting that near to reproducing them.
