Another fantastic album by Eleanor McEvoy,
This review is from: If You Leave... (Audio CD)
"If You Leave..." has everything going for it--beautiful melodies, intelligent lyrics, and impeccable musicianship. Eleanor McEvoy is a renowned songwriter and the tracks she penned on "If You Leave..." display how her talent brings forth perfectly crafted tunes. McEvoy also has a talent for combining her own compositions with interpretations of songs by artists she admires. One example of this is "True Colors"; Cindy Lauper's version would leave one believing no one could do a version of this song that would compare. McEvoy does just that--her version actually surpassed Lauper's.
I was surprised to see three lukewarm reviews of the album. It is McEvoy's best to date, and that is saying a lot as all nine of her previous albums are gems. Don't pass this one up--it's truly a brilliant album.
