Top Ten Alison Moyet & Yazoo Albums

Similarly to my Annie Lennox & Eurythmics list, this one comprises both Alison Moyet's solo work and her tenure with synthpop Yazoo. I'm not as much of a fan of hers as I am Annie Lennox, so the comments are far more basic than on the previously mentioned list. Alison is a very gifted singer, with an instantly recognizable voice once you've heard her. Her music, however, can be a bit hit or miss. Being pushed by labels for much of her career resulted in these morw formulaic releases; but it can be said that jusy because an album has a formula does not mean it can't contain some good material, as is the case with her debut Alf. So without further explanation here is the list.
