Single Review: Imogen Heap - Headlock

Imogen Heap releases another single off of the back of her re-released LP Speak For Yourself.

Slightly re-tooled for the radio, 'Headlock' this time features a few more strings in the intro but little else has changed.

The single is backed with a mix by Hospital Records' High Contrast. Drum 'n' Bass meets Heap is much as you would expect, but this, lacking the sensitivity of the original and the edge needed for the dancefloor, certainly does not stick in the mind as a potential anthem.

'Headlock' is by no means a major album highlight but does benefit from a certain fragility. It just seems a little suprising a release when there are stronger tracks elsewhere on the album.
