Artful Dodger feat. Melanie Blatt
Released: 3rd September 2001.
Artful Dodger are no longer a duo, and All Saints may be no more, but that hasn't stopped Mark Hill and Melanie Blatt collaborating on this fantastic track. Unlike the previous Artful Dodger singles, this has a summery, flamenco feel thanks to Mark's Spanish guitar used throughout. Meanwhile Mel's vocals give the track a wonderfully uplifting feel, similar to some of All Saints' greatest moments. The best of both worlds really.
Although former All Saint Melanie Blatt has a distinctive voice, Artful Dodger are maybe showing variation a little too late. The song starts off sounding like "Please Don't Turn Me On" playing too slow, and it's not as good as "Think About Me".
