2011年BBC年度新声第五名,浑厚有力的声线和精致复古妆容包裹下的外形似乎有点出乎意料,来自英国的女歌手,歌声风格很冷艳,黑洞般的声线,可能听惯流行歌之类的会觉得她风格和其他流行音乐很格格不入,就专辑本身来说,里面的歌曲大多听起来不那么欢快,更多的是一种大气、空旷的味道,加上Maguire本身似黑洞的声线,随即就和那些快餐式的泡泡糖口水歌说拜拜,不过专辑的作品调子基本偏慢,或许不那么好这口的人听了会觉得稍许沉闷!

★Review

An artist like Clare Maguire was bound to find success in the U.K. music scene — she looks like Katy Perry's evil twin, she's got the voice of Annie Lennox and Cher's lovechild, and she performs with the gusto of Florence Welch: needless to say, it would take only the least savvy producer to deny this girl a chance to win over an entire country. Ultimately, it was Fraser T. Smith who collaborated with Maguire, co-writing and producing 13 of the 14 tracks on Light After Dark, Maguire's debut. However, with all the cards in place for a grand slam debut album, Light After Dark falls short. Smith, the pop hitmaker behind Brit hip-hop stars Tinchy Stryder, Taio Cruz, and Adele, produces work here that's nowhere near as inspired as any of his biggest or most creative hits. The album is produced with an eye to market Maguire like a more mainstream Florence and the Machine record; however, the songwriting is often disillusioned and lifeless, and Maguire fails to use her voice to its potential, often relying on Katy Perry-esque full-throttle belting to convey emotion (something that comes naturally to Welch or Kate Bush. Light After Dark is a perfectly respectable showcase of hints of Maguire's potential. On tracks like "I Surrender," she conquers the lame production to release a sensual late-'90s pop recording that leaves the listener wondering what might have happened had this whole album moved in that direction. However, because Light After Dark tries so hard to keep up with the tricks of the trade in 2011, it loses any sense of originality that Maguire brings to the table, which, especially in the pop music scene, is the only way to stand out.
