FINALLY something from Sophie Ellis-Bextor has officially arrived! Even if it's only a VS track with top trance DJ Armin van Buuren, it's enough for us SE-B fans to fuss about. I'm not the biggest trance music fan, so it took quite a few listens for me to... absorb its 'throbbiness' (this description fails, I know). Not Giving Up On Love sounds like Sophie on foreign territory. There's no mistaking those vocals, definitely, but it doesn't fit the pulsating synths to a 'T'. Let's hope Sophie does well chart-wise this time around.
The piano tinkles at the beginning are not-so-trancey but brilliant nonetheless.
