Quite simply: one of England’s greatest voices has now made the ultimate recording. An Equal Love demonstrates Christine’s growth as both a singer and a songwriter – half the album is written by her. “Collister’s effect is transfixing” – fROOTS.
“….her finest hour. She combines amazing vocal control with emotional authority….the title track is one of the most affecting vocals she’s yet committed to record” fROOTS
“..true edge of the seat stuff.. a classy package that transcends generic branding.. a superb release, for which Christine’s stop-you-dead version of Moon River is the perfect closer.” Traditional Music Maker
“She is absolutely fearless tackling very thorny material. Her artistic restlessness is exciting. Strong recommendation” Sing Out
Christineâ€™s second solo album for Topic finds her great voice in even better form, if that is possible. Into the Light is the closest thing yet to capturing the live quality and personality of this outstanding singer. Its style is more acoustic than “An Equal Love” and again, it features her unique songwriting skills alongside a selection of specially chosen covers of classic contemporary song.
“Christineâ€™s soulfully smoky and superbly controlled vocal work reigns supreme”. Folk Roundabout
“Into the Light is a subtle grower of a recording, that reflects the maturity of its creator and her own creativity, that, right now, is liberal and assured. A quite beautiful step forward.” fROOTS
