Review: Is Your Love Big Enough? by Lianne La Havas

Is Your Love Big Enough? by Lianne La HavasLianne La Havas doesn’t quite exactly know where she wants to go. Half of Is Your Love Big Enough? is your usual AC radio-type fodder; it’s pleasant, but songs like “Gone” and “They Could Be Wrong” tend to border on forgettable. Leave her alone with her guitar and her smoky vocals, though, and you’re on to a winner. “Don’t Wake Me Up” and “Elusive” show Lianne’s delicate yet authoritative (so to speak) singing. And her guitar playing, yes, it’s divine. To be fair, albums like this make for a hard balancing act – you can’t be so happy, and you can’t be so sleepy – so Lianne’s debut is a good enough effort. Her vocals carry it through, even in the noisiest (so to speak) moments; let’s hope she keeps it that way in album number two. | 4/5
