I already purchased Lisa Marie's first two albums when they were released, so I trusted that I'd be in for a good listen with her third album, Storm & Grace. How wrong I was.
Storm & Grace isn't merely a "good" album. It is a beautiful album - very honest, haunting, enchanting and at times masterful.
This talented woman is so underrated by people, purely because they feel she made it based on her father's fame. How wrong they are. Lisa Marie is an artist so talented and visionary that she would have been releasing music with or without her famous family behind her. She certainly deserves recognition and respect in her own right: what she does is nothing short of amazing.
Songs such as "Storm and Grace" "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" "I Was Wrong" and "Close To The Edge" are all exceptional, as is the majority of the album.
I can't recommend it enough: Lisa Marie hasn't sold out to current trends, she hasn't tried to mould herself into something she is not - she is simply content to be herself, and this shines out through her music.
If you want something a little deeper than what you find in the throw-away charts nowadays, then try this album. It is moody, gets under your skin, and you really feel like you take a journey with this woman as you listen to her world unfold through song.
I give it 5 out of 5, because it deserves it.
Anyone rating it less because of her name and her family background are giving this woman a disservice: she is talented in her own right. Try it for yourself, give her time: I promise you will find it hard to be disappointed in what she delivers!
