Review: Craig David

Trust Me (Teacup)

He may have changed the image - with a new haircut and even more razor-sharp new suit - but when you scrape away the layers of polish on latest record Trust Me, you are not left with an awful lot of substance.

Even sampled snatches from greats like David Bowie and Diana Ross cannot save the album.

Don't get me wrong, David can sing - but there isn't much by the way of vocal-challenging on Trust Me.

Really only two tracks stand out - Kinda Girl For Me which samples Ross's You Are Everything and 6 of 1 Thing.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Working in isolation doesn't suit you. You're a social creature who gets your best ideas when collaborating with others. Unfortunately, that's not possible right now. Resign yourself to this difficult situation. If you do a good job, you'll pave the way for bigger and better assignments. Part of the problem is you lack experience. The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
