Santi 'Santigold' White should have been massive. For a while it seemed every female pop star owed her a debt, yet she remained too pop for cult and too cult for pop. Everyone knows 'Disparate Youth', yet few realise they do. With the right push, her third album should set the record straight.

For starters, 'Banshee' is a 24-carat shout-along and potential chart-topper, a girl-pop cousin to Groove Armada's 'Superstylin'. The whole album drips with Caribbean zest, the tropical bounce of 'Can't Get Enough Of Myself' and the pumping 'Rendezvous Girl' balanced by eccentric slowies such as the oddball power ballad 'Run The Races'.

There's plenty more too, candied but with class and pop bite.
