Fantastic follow up to the great 'Little Voice',
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kaleidoscope Heart (Audio CD)
I loved Little Voice and was eagerly awaiting this. On release date couldn't find this in any uk store. I couldn't wait so ordered this from Amazon and I adore it as much as Little Voice.
Bareilles has an amazing voice and is a fantastic songwriter. I'm a fan of Lady Gaga but I'd pick Bareilles any day of the week. Her music is grown up and quite frankly gorgeous. The songs on 'Kaleidoscope Heart' flow gently from one to another and sound like they belong together.
On my first few listens these are my stand out tracks...
Gonna Get Over You
King Of Anything
Say You're Sorry
The only one I haven't really taken too is The Light. It may grow on me but it may this album's 'Vegas' which was the only song I disliked on Little Voice.
Along with Ingrid Michaelson she is one of my favourite artists and it's a huge shame this album has been largely ignored in the UK after her previous success.
It's great to have a female artist that doesn't have to rely on her body or sing about how sexy she is. Her voice and music prove she is worthy of her recording contract.
Also on a different but important note: the import version packaging is environmentally friendly, no plastic. :)
