Nicky Holland’s “debut” album – titled, uncannily, Nicky Holland – is her first, but it comes after 10 years of working on virtually everybody else’s. Holland is among pop’s most flexible hired hands. Tears for Fears, Lloyd Cole, Cyndi Lauper, Oleta Adams, Ryuichi Sakamoto… they’ve all called her in to arrange strings, or assist with a tune, or sing backing vocals, or set up orchestral parts, or play some piano. She’s an all-purpose musical troubleshooter. If you’re David Byrne, and you need some folk songs from the Bahamas transcribed, then Nicky Holland is your woman.On her eponymous debut, Nicky Holland performs U.K. flavored smooth pop in a similar vein to the music of Sade, Basia, and Swing Out Sister. This is one of those releases that is very enjoyable to listen to, but the material doesn’t stick with the listener. Holland has an adequate voice and the production and musicianship are fine, but the music is not memorable. A sign of a great album is that it haunts the listener between listens, which compels them to return for more listens. This is not a great album; but for those in-the-moment listens, it’s good.
