Album Of The Week

'Not every singer can take classics like 'Imagine' and 'Fields of Gold' and still lend something of their own identity to them, but Pauline does this with ease. She has that rare ability to really 'live' the lyrics she is singing and bring songs alive with her pure, emotionally-charged voice that evokes the ghosts of Eva Cassidy and Karen Carpenter to name but a few...On the strength of this debut offering, it must be concluded that Pauline Alexander is indeed a voice, and a force to be reckoned with'.
The Sunday Session, Celtic Music Radio
'One album that I would thoroughly recommend is 'Thoughts for the Masses' from Glaswegian singer/songwriter Pauline Alexander. This album is her debut and it can only be described as an absolute gem. There are some hauntingly beautiful tracks on the album but for me her cover of 'Fields of Gold' and her own compositions' Where Lucifer Lingers' and 'Seven Notes' all stand out In a day when every artiste is labelled in a box called 'sounds like' inevitable comparisons will be made with the likes of Eva Cassidy and Katie Melua however alongside these artistes there is no doubt that Pauline has a voice to rival even theirs. The album is an independent release just now but it only a matter of time before Pauline is picked up by a major label and becomes a household name in her own right'

interpretation of the song and her version of Lennon's "Imagine", are
far more than straight covers. As with the rest of the material on the
album, Pauline's voice captivates the
listener. Using simple arrangements with mainly guitar and keyboard,
the music is almost understated, allowing the voice to take prominence."
