This is the best cd ever. The fact that ' White Lilies Island ' has
not got much attention of the media, gives the cd an atmosphere as if
Natalie plays just for you. Natalie's voice is pure... and the
songs can be only described as pure pop! Here is a survey of all twelve songs:
#01 THAT DAY : This is a nice entrance to the cd. It grows on you after two listens. Nice arrangement, beautifully sung. It was however a mistake to release it as a single in Europe. The song is about escaping from all the pain that is in your life. 9/10
#02 BEAUTY ON THE FIRE : This song is a little dancy compared to the rest of the album, especially in it's excellent radio mix, included on the single (which also includes three amazing b-sides and the splendid video). Fresh and catchy, it is one of my favourites. 10/10
#03 SATELLITE : Quite good, but not great. It offers some fine 'Hawaiian' beats, and it is very catchy. It's feel however is quite bubblegumpoppish. 7/10
#04 DO YOU LOVE : This one was a grower for me, although the chorus is very catchy. The melody is haunting. The meaning is however quite vague, something about avoiding a person fall into chaos. 8/10
#05 WRONG IMPRESSION : Ah, the album version of the UK #10 song. It's different from the radio mix which is heard in the video, less catchy. Don't play it too often, if you don't want it to become dull. 7/10
#06 GOODBYE : This song is very very great. Depressive but great. As it builds tension, the sound becomes much rockier. The song is, yes, about saying goodbye. 9/10
#07 EVERYTHING GOES : Another good song, has a nice 'paradise' feel, is however somewhat unremarkable among the other songs. 8/10
#08 HURRICANE : Slow and beautiful.

Born just outside Sydney, in 1975 and first became known as an actress - firstly in commercials and then in the Australian soap "Neighbours". After leaving the show, she moved to London before clinching a record deal and releasing her first single, "Torn". The song became a huge success, and is featured on her debut album "Left of the Middle".
"White Lilies Island" is Natalie's second album and was released in 2002. Not unlike her first, it has an indie / guitar feel to it. Three singles were released from it - "That Day", "Wrong Impression" and Beauty on the Fire" - and all twelve tracks see Natalie with a co-writing credit. While none of the singles as instantly memorable as "Torn", they are strong tracks and give a good indication of the overall 'sound' of the album.
Of the singles, I liked "Wrong Impression" the best - I'd consider it to be one of the best tracks on the album. However, there are several tracks at least its equal, and some that I think would've been better choices as the album's singles. "Sunlight" springs straight to mind - the singing style used by Natalie and the guitar playing comes together superbly. For me, it has the best 'hook' on the album. "Butterflies" comes very close to being my favourite song on the album, starting off acoustically before becoming a little more energetic. It's not an entirely up-tempo album though - three songs in the middle of the album are a little more laid back. I'd describe "Goodbye" as the album's slow and moody song. "Everything Goes", a very strong song, keeps the guitars plugged in - but also adds some strings and a strong acoustic element. "Hurricane", the last of the three, takes a similar approach, though it feels a bit more introspective.
An excellent album, and highly recommended. I really can't understand how she doesn't have a higher profile !

Four years in the music industry can make a huge difference. The ever changing pace can be cruel to some artists, leaving them behind as they try to keep up with their next album release.
So when Natalie Imbruglia's name faded, the short hair and tom boy chick just a reminiscant of pop past, suddenly she's back, with a new look, new style and new direction.
And was she left behind, like all the other artists? No. In fact, it's the opposite, she's grown, matured and geared up for one of the best album releases of the year.
A four year gap has given Imbruglia a stronger direction, a much more definitive sound. Whilst Left Of The Middle road a wave of angst, pain, and sorrow, it lacked confidence. Imbruglia, in these past years, has not only found the confidence, she's found a style. A style which she can call her own, a style in which she's embraced beautifully. From the rising bud of a beautiful songtress, came a beautiful lily. A white lily, or to be more exact, White Lilies Island, the name of her second album.
Although her style isn't directed in one way, it gives a perfect mix of indie and rock collaborations. A guitar driven, band sounding heartfelt album with collaborations once again from Phil Thornally (Torn) and many new artists which weren't featured on Left Of The Middle.
No longer screaming how she's torn, shamed or lying naked on the floor, she now opens up with words like sad, scared, small, alone. Beautiful. The very diversity of the album geared towards emotional set backs of the born again star. Each song works beautifully with lyrics and sound, and written by Imbruglia herself, capturing the pain of loss, the cliche that is love, from her own life experiences. And now she's grown, matured, and enraptured it all with her album.
