One of the reasons I listen to RP is because of the voices from throughout the world I hear here!

Yes, she's fantastic!
I think in this track she sounds like a big fan of Conjure One.  {#Daisy}

I'm beginning to think there is a consorted attack from right-wing bots to hijack radioparadise and turn it in to a country station.

Let's hope they don't succeed.

Yep, I'll second that {#Clap}. I listen to RP to be exposed to new and different music, to be stimulated, to have my horizons widened, and of course to keep me sane during staggeringly tedious wage-slavery. Kudos to Imogen Heap for pushing her boundaries. As with all experiments, some fail, some work, and IMO this one works well. 8 from the Nottingham jury.

That sounds like a mind WITH fear... and closed to new ideas.  Nothing personal, that's just how that comment comes across to me. (Perhaps I just don't grok the Groucho reference...)

Anyway, just for fun, here's the poem from which the inspiration for this song arose:

Where The Mind Is Without Fear

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

by Rabindranath Tagore

Peace.

Doesn't know what it's tying to be. Imogen is fantastic in a bonkers kind of way but this is boring and cliched.
