Couldn't find a thread for this album so here we go

What does everyone think? It's one of the biggest surprises of the year for me so far, I bought it on a whim having only heard the title track and Lost & Found by her before and I absolutely love it. Gorgeous voice and great tracks, she deserves so much success. My favourites are No Room for Doubt, Elusive and Gone.

Saw her on Sunday Brunch I think performing just with a guitar..She`s had some great reviews,but is feeling a bit hyped. Is the album heavily orchestrated? Or a small band feel?

It's not heavily orchestrated but there's a bit more to the production of the album than just a guitar. Some songs like Au Cinema are more produced than others, but generally I'd say more of a small band feel. The production adds to it imo, sometimes it can take away from it with artists like Lianne, but it's a very well crafted album

Album of the year so far without a doubt. Stunning from start to finish, I don't think there's one track on it I dislike. Lost & Found, Au Cinema and Forget are my standouts.

I`m buying it. Two people have chosen in total six favourite tracks between them; good sign.

Amazing album, definitely one of my favourites from the past year and Lianne's beautiful voice is enough to captivate you for the length of it. The production is fantastic too.

I've only seen her once on Jools Holland last year just accompanying herself on guitar and she stood out on that show. Her style reminded me a little of Corinne Bailey Rae, but she looked a lot younger. Definitely a talent to watch out for.

The thing I like best about Is Your Love Big Enough as an album is that it isn't too like, flashy or show off-y, it's just simple and brilliant. Glad 2012 was a relatively successful year for Lianne, it'll be interesting to see where she goes next.
