Surprisingly very good.
on 2 February 2014
I never even realized that Emmelie was involved with Eurovision until after I had heard the album at a friend's house, I immediately downloaded from the Amazon store when I returned home.
It's surprising because it's not my normal type of music, but is has a certain folk style to it that just makes it stand out from the rest of the singer/songwriter albums that have hit us in recent years.
I love her voice and there are some standout tracks on this album including the title track, 'Change', 'Beat the speed of sound' and the hugely underrated 'Let It Fall'. I cannot understand why 'Let it Fall' was never released as a single, it would be huge.
This album deserves to have better marketing behind it and in the right hands it could propel Emmelie to a whole new level. As it is, it is a hidden secret. Most would only delve into the song 'Only Teardrops' but there is so much more on offer here.
A little thing I find bizarre - I can almost see this voice fitting perfectly with the likes of power metal, like 'Within Temptation' or 'Nightwish' just without the operatic tendencies - but that's just me. Overall - very solid and don't confuse this with normal Eurovision tat.
