Published October 30, 2003.Isobel Campbell Amorino (Instinct)Former Belle and Sebastian member Isobel Campbell has created a disc of lush, gorgeous and staggeringly brilliant music. Campbell utilizes the basic ideas laid out by B&S and adds a light, trippy feel that flows from speakers like a summer breeze. Included are songs that capture the essence of peak Burt Bacharach, a little ragtime and dream-pop orchestrations that sound like an uplifting Nick Drake. A must for B&S fans, this record has a depth which will appeal to many others as well. —Trevor MacLaren
