Second single from the Boys Don't Cry album. I like it. While it won't be a massive hit for her, i hope it increases album sales.

I'm surprised PF Sloan didn't do anything. If her name had been Lana Del Rey it would have been huge.

I'm a big fan of Rumer (was a Rumer pioneer on here ages ago before her debut was released) but I think what will hold her back, and one of the reasons she isn't and probably never will be as big as Ms Del Rey, is she clearly isn't a prolific songwriter. The fact that her second album is a covers album tends to demonstrate my theory.

Well she won't be as a big as Lana del rey because she is no where near the same league. Both different artists, different genres of music and totally different songwriters.

Rumer is a soul singer. Soul singers don't sell millions of albums. It just so happens the likes of Adele and Amy winehouse won the jackpot.

She has a gorgeous voice and i thought her second album was beautiful as she made the covers very "Rumer-ish". The fact she did one covers album doesn't hold her back at all. She did an album she wanted to. Simple as.

Bring on album 3 please

I assume this is the same song as the one that Sarah Whatmore sampled a few years ago? I liked that but it slipped by largely unnoticed, and although Rumer is more popular I can't see this making any more impact.

How do you explain Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Barry White then?

Amy and Adele? You've already stated they 'won the jackpot' Are you suggesting there is a finite amount of buyers of soul singers' music and those 2 captured the whole of the market? Not the most convincing argument, really. Check back, I am a long standing Rumer fan but this album (and I have it and did like it but haven't played it for ages) has needlessly stalled her career. It should have been self written/originals imo. Maybe I'm getting you wrong but I'm sure you were of the same opinion as me when it leaked?

Huh? In what way am I rude and putting words in your mouth? 2 quotes from you regarding this album:

Listenin to the album and her voice is amazing but the material she has chosen for this cover album hasn't done her any justice at all. She could really make one hell of an album if she puts her mind to it.
