All Music Guide - Nick Dedina
From their inception in 1985, Swing out Sister expressed love for the lush soft pop, soul, and soundtracks of the 1960s and early '70s. Vocalist Corinne Drewery and keyboardist Andy Connell were singing the praises of Burt Bacharach, Jimmy Webb, and John Barry back when those great artists were thought to be the definition of square and unhip. Now that those same artists are revered and widely sampled and copied by mainstream and alternative musicians alike, Swing out Sister may be regarded as following, rather than leading, the retro-pack of modern lounge music-makers. Somewhere Deep in the Night is a very strong album from the duo, packed full of sweeping, melancholy ...

Vocalist Corinne Drewery and keyboardist Andy Connell were singing the praises of Burt Bacharach, Jimmy Webb, and John Barry back when those great artists were thought to be the definition of square and unhip. Now that those same artists are revered and widely sampled and copied by mainstream and alternative musicians alike, Swing out Sister may be regarded as following, rather than leading, the retro-pack of modern lounge music-makers. Somewhere Deep in the Night is a very strong album from the duo, packed full of sweeping, melancholy tunes that echo Bacharach or Webb, while the album is held together by lush instrumental themes that seem straight out of a '60s soundtrack album by Barry or Quincy Jones. In keeping with this theme, the album art even features the comely Drewery wearing the same groovy jumpsuit that Diana Rigg made famous on The Avengers, the show that defined Britain in the swinging '60s. That said, Swing out Sister brings plenty of their own musical ideas and long-held style to the table and continues to show that they've grown as songwriters over the years. Somewhere Deep in the Night is a rich album, but it uses its sumptuous, melodramatic arrangements to sugar rather bleak songs of confusion and lost love the best of which are "Where the Hell Did I Go Wrong" and "Where Do I Go?", rather than simply dazzle the listener with retro-schmaltz. Indeed, the album grows deeper with each spin instead of just making you curious about the old records that were Swing out Sister's original inspirations.

    Swing Out Sister's Undisputed Best

    This is easily the best and most mature Swing Out Sister to date blending pop rhythms, a tad of jazz, and some Burt Bacharachian strains throughout the 47 minute performance. Hit your CD player's Repeat button and be amazed at what you hear. From Track 1 through 14 it's a treat any way you look at it. There's some scat jazz on "Alpine Crossing," ala New York Voices, and the rest has to be heard to be appreciated. This album will be loved by diehard fans and folks new to Swing Out Sister as well. If you haven't bothered checking this musical duo since the late 1980's "Breakout" hit, you need to get current and hear what you've been missing. The shame is that "Somewhere Deep In The Night" hasn't been released in the United States. This is a magnificent album; don't stay home tonight without it!

    Incredibly well-crafted out of the world album

    if you don't know Swing out sister, you are missing out! This album is a must have for fans of jazz, 60s soul/pop, 60-70's soundtracks, and Burt Bacharach! Killer! One of their best! Must have!!!!
