"Nothing's cold as yesterday's flame", opines Alison Moyet on the opening number of Hometime, the first album from the mature pop/rock singer and Yazoo founder in eight years. Indeed, although once a force to be reckoned with in the 1980s, (1995's career-retrospective Singles duly reached Number 1 in the UK album charts), there seems to be little commercial elbow room for female artists these days. That said, despite lengthy bouts of hibernation through family commitments and loss of self-confidence ("If you're heart isn't in it, pull away and start again" is the very first, rather confessional, line on the album), Moyet is a hardy dame and Hometime is a belated but nevertheless welcome return to the soulful pop stridency and sad, blues-hued tunesmithery at which she excels.
