Although it took Imogen Heap seven years to follow up her solo debut with 2005's Speak for Yourself, the British vocalist was far from idle during the interim, having formed Frou Frou with producer Guy Sigsworth (Björk, Seal). While her second album mines a vein similar to Frou Frou's electronica/pop hybrid, it also carries a more sweeping and dynamic singer/songwriter aesthetic. The disc's most notable track is "Hide and Seek," a nearly a cappella tune that was prominently featured on the popular teen drama The O.C., and presents Heap's bold-yet-breathy vocals lounging on a bed of electronic effects. Other highlights include the glitchy, chiming "Goodnight and Go" and the urgent "Clear the Area," both of which exemplify this assured and intriguing record. ~ Eric Schneider

Nearly three years in the making, Sparks is an ambitious concept album from Imogen Heap. Almost all of the 14 songs find their origin in short, brief aural snippets of found sounds, audio that is almost buried in the finished form on Sparks but nevertheless gives the album a skittish, otherworldly feeling. Often, the record dances on the far side of elliptical: not only are the rhythms simultaneously skeletal and elastic -- sometimes they barely seem to be there -- but the melodies aren't direct, so it takes a while for this album to sink in. Sometimes, it seems like a spacier, chillier counterpart to tUnE-yArDs; it's not as dense in its arrangements or allusions but it is cerebral and worldly, refusing to take a direct route when a detour will do. As such, it sometimes walks the line between close listening and a wash of sound, but it's intriguing from whatever angle it is approached. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
