article imageReview: Ronnie Spector fantastic on new studio album 'English Heart' Special

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Ronnie Spector is back with her latest album "English Heart," her first full-length project in 10 years, and it was certainly worth the wait.
This 11-track collection features some of her favorite songs that were handpicked by Spector, which were initially recorded by such musical acts as The Kinks, The Animals and The Beatles, among others.
Her CD opens with the slow-moving, sultry ballad, "Oh Me Oh My (I'm A Fool For You Baby)" and it is followed by "Because," which features neat background vocals from female back-up singers.
"I'd Much Rather Be With The Girls" is a mid-tempo yet sassy tune. She changes the pace with the ballads "Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying" and the bittersweet "Tired Of Waiting." Spector shows her spitfire side on the unapologetic "Tell Her No."
She sings "I'll Follow The Sun" like a soothing lullaby, while "You've Got Your Troubles" has a retro vibe to it. "Girl Don't Come" is uptempo and refreshing, and she picks up the pace yet again with "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood." Spector's album closes on a melancholic note with the piano-driven "How Can You Mend A Broken Heart," where her vocals are crisp and crystalline.
The Verdict
Overall, Ronnie Spector is as good as ever on her latest studio effort. There are no filler tracks on this musical project, and it proves that the "Original Bad Girl of Rock and Roll" is back with a vengeance. English Heart garners an A rating.
