Here’s what we said about the album ‘Wallflowers’ when it was released last year.

Diana Krall has made a career out of delivering luscious versions of classic tunes.

On this new record she takes on well-known songs from the ‘70s and ‘80s and the results are simply gorgeous.

Krall drapes her sultry vocals over ‘California Dreaming’, as well as The Eagles’ ‘Desperado’, her take on The Carpenters’ ‘Superstar’ is a slow and hazy backed by a full orchestra – it’s heaven.

Also on the menu well known songs from Crowded House, 10CC, Bob Dylan and Jim Croce. Most impressive is her take on Elton John’s ‘Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word’ – which strikes the perfect balance of melancholy and woe.
