Enjoyable second album and showcases a more varied set of songs,
This review is from: Perfect Day (Audio CD)
I haven't been able to stop playing Cascada's second album. It's a high-energy tight collection of songs that shows a natural progression from their best-selling debut album, "Everytime We Touch". Of course it's not going to win the awards but you don't buy into Cascada expecting that. Not all music has to bring reality crashing home. A litte respite is what we deserve at times and this album is just perfect for allowing this.
Natalie Horler's vocals are once again impressive and they never fail to convey the emotion of the song and she does so with a tenacity that will win over even some of the most ardent Cascada haters.
There is no denying Cascada's ability to pump out those instant dance floor fillers that will have themselves lodged in your mind for days at a time.
Current single "What Hurts the Most" is a good introduction to what is to come. A real stonker of a track that is sure to do well in the charts.
Much of the album is written by Cascada and I believe that is where its strengths lie. The real strong-point of the album are the original productions. The covers, although popular, do little to improve on the originals but that is no matter because in true Cascada style they are all club bangers.
The slow piano ballad version of "What Hurts the Most" is a perfect reminder of Natalie's vocal abilities and the album most tender moment.
If you have liked any Cascada song or are in need of a bit of light relief this should be the perfect purchase. I really am enjoying it and am satified to see Cascada developing on their identifiable sound with a more varied and overall more rounded collection of songs.
