"A voice so true it makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand
on end." - Lancashire Evening Telegraph
"What a belter!" - Manchester Evening News.
"Great voice, great songs, great production. It sent shivers down
my spine." - Al Cleveland (veteran Motown record producer and
songwriter, whose hits include I Second That Emotion)
"-- (Bernard Taylor) has given the album lavish production values
and strong arrangements that make Moore seem as if she could be pop music's next
diva. She's terrific, with a distinctive, expressive voice that brings out the
best in Taylor's songs."
- Show Music, Volume 1, Number 4.
"A voice that is quite astounding, effortlessly soaring from a soft
purr to an electrifying higher plane. That power and intensity pins you back in
your seat and leaves you breathless with admiration. . . . The songs are of a
universally high standard"
- Mike Gibb, Masquerade
"'Child of the Earth" is a genuine experience and vocal tour
de force during which Claire reveals the range and panache of Streisand and the
warmth of a blues diva. Simply sensational!"
- Jewish Gazette
"This (album) would be equally at home in the charts. In fact some
of the ballads would probably top the charts."
- Manchester Evening News
