Essex is the fourth studio album by British singer-songwriter Alison Moyet. The album, named after the artist's native Essex, England, was released in 1994, reached No. 24 in the UK and includes the singles "Falling", "Whispering Your Name", "Getting into Something" and "Ode to Boy". Having demanded greater artistic freedom from her record company, Moyet was left to record her third album Hoodoo without input from the label
Musically, the album veers from the Revolver-era Beatles sound of the second single, "Falling," to the Motown rhythm of "So Am I" and an unnecessary remake of Yaz's "Ode to Boy" arranged to sound like "Pinball Wizard. The best song, the Glenister-produced ballad "Satellite," is buried in the middle of the record - what makes it the best is that the arrangement actually allows Moyet the space to sing and to be as moving as she can be.
