Despite modest buzz, Alice Smith's 2007 debut flew by virtually unnoticed. But the rise of similar iconoclasts like Lianne La Havas gives her new context. Deviating from the snoozy neo-soul playbook, Smith toys with genre on She, from stark folk that quickly shifts into electro-pop on "Ocean" to the warm downtempo of "The One." She has a light and supple voice that makes her games seem substantial, not dilettantish. At one point, she covers Melanie Fiona and Cee-Lo's hit "Fool for You," perhaps winking at how she's long made the kind of music Fiona does now.
