2013 album by world-renowned musical icon Alison Moyet, who has achieved sales of more than 20 million units both as a solo artist and half of influential duo Yazoo. Her first album since 2007, The Minutes was written with and produced by Guy Sigsworth, known for his work with Robyn, Frou Frou, Bj”rk, Goldie, and Madonna. Experimental, captivating, and entirely cohesive, this is beauty with an edge. Clearly indicating a new artistic lease of life, The Minutes is arguably Alison s most creative album. It has subtle parallels to her synth-pop past but is also bang up-to-date, taking in elements of high-end pop smashes, R&B, modern club sounds, and electronic experimentation.
