A very hit and miss album some tracks would be at home on Eurovision
on 14 July 2015
A very hit and miss album. Half of the tracks would be at home on Eurovision. The song Troika sums up the problem. It uses a derivative folk melody and while it layers on some very nice vocals and guitar it also layers on string style effects and stuff making it more euro pop than
So why did I give it two stars? (I think I am being generous here)
A star for the vocals Candice provides are great and crystal clear just let down by the bland tunes.
A star for the guitar/string playing which when it is let loose is excellent in places and shows why Ritchie Blackmore is so considered so good but overall the album does not have enough of this great musicianship on show.
The stars are also for the few songs on here which sound good, such as ‘I Think It's Going to Rain Today’ unfortunately a lot of the album is a weak re-treading rather than rethreading of traditional melodies.
