Estelle – No Substitute Love

Here we have the third cut taken from Estelle’s current long player “Shine”. Straight away you’ll recognise the George Michael standard “Faith” providing the drive for this track, mish-mashed with Lindon Roberts “No Substitute Lover”.

While providing a decent follow up to her previous smash “American Boy”, the over influence of sampled tracks here cover a fine vocal performance, though the whole thing doesn’t really stand up on its own and will be swept away in the mire with other likeable but forgettable r&b pop outings; a serious case of familiarity breeding contempt one thinks.
