Experience the pure power and sensitivity of Dina Carroll.
on 9 December 2000
Many of you may not have experienced the pure vocal talents of Miss Dina Carroll yet. If not then let me recommend this excellent album to you. Dina Carroll has a rich, warm voice which has a hint of spice too. Equally at home with a gentle ballad or a more upbeat disco track I am sure that you'll find this album a joy to listen too from the first hearing. It is also the sort of album that you won't tire of but will remain a firm favourite.
I find its great to listen to in the car, as background music when people are round or turned up loud in the foreground - just take it as you feel.
The first track 'Special Kind of Love' is a great start and shows the power of Dina's voice, but my favourite is 'This Time' (track 3) with its great start - just turn it up and it's the sort of stuff that gets the hairs on the back of neck tingling. The title track So Close (track 5) is another firm favourite, indeed its difficult to pick one that isn't. But wait until track 10 'Don't Be a Stranger' with its powerful instrumental start building to the purity of the first vocals, and the gentle yet strong harmonies - and great lyrics to boot.
So treat yourself - experience the rich tone, the power, but sensitivity of Dina Carroll - you'll keep coming back for more !
