Jessie Ware - Pearls
Oh dear. I am going to upset loads of people this week. I have the same issue with 'Pearls' that I had with the Jake Shears and Depeche Mode singles. Yes, it's a good song. But better has come before, leaving me with musical blue balls. Compare it to the Poppers rush of 'Free Yourself' or the perfection of 'Save A Kiss'. It just doesn't reach those same heights. All elements are here (the spoken word bit at the start is everything), but it's lacking that special something. I have no doubt more greatness will follow. This isn't it, though.
