Having an empirically good singing voice must be a terrible burden at times. The expectation is that you can sing anything and make it beautiful; any daft lyric, any stunning classic, anything from Wagner to N-Dubz. If you’ve got The Voice, you can make it shine. Back to Scratch is an album that works best in fragments. There are songs which hark back to Charlotte’s teenage years, spent belting out arias and show tunes in front of an orchestra, and there are more modest songs with ukuleles and mandolins – We Were Young is a particularly lovely example. There are fun songs with light lyrics and deep songs with purple lyrics. There’s even a song – Ruby – which has been recorded to sound like a dusty old jazz 45. You might love all of it, but possibly not in one sitting.
