My Top Tunes: Alison Limerick selects her all-time favourite ten records.

Bill Brewster, Mixmag, May 1992

'Optimistic' — Sounds Of Blackness

"I'm probably going to say this for most of the songs, but the vocals on this are brilliant. I like harmonies. Not only have they got a really good groove going here, but they've got all those close harmonies with great lead vocals over the top. I like both the original and the remix, but I think I prefer the album version."
