5.0 out of 5 stars She wants her 15 minutes of fame, but 20 would be nice..., 27 Jan. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Left Of The Middle + Bonus Tracks (17 Tracks) (Audio CD)
In 1997 Natalie Imbruglia burst onto radio stations and tv shows with "that song". "Torn" was one of the biggest selling singles of that year, and even won Natalie the best video award at the brits. The break-up anthem was just a taste of the energy and strong vocal chords Natalie has to offer. Left of the middle introduces us to a unique blend of music styles, from the more "pop" song, Torn, to the haunting ballad of "Smoke" and the upbeat "Impressed". Describing Left of the middle as "Where she was at the time" and "Meaning it has no balanced" Natalie made an album that came purely from the heart. Writing 10 of the twelve tracks, Natalie wanted to make her album exactly that, HERS. None manufactured, just a part of her. A part you can either love or hate. She didn't want to be going to producers and asking "I want this done" she said "teach me". Learning production skills and writing skills Natalie set out to conquer the music market, and, is exactly what she done. Left of The Middle reached 6X platinum in her homeland of Australia, and furthered into greater figures across Europe, and smashing a top ten mark in the US. The songs themselves tell stories of Natalies life and thoughts...."Torn", "One more addiction", "Big Mistake", "Impressed" and "Leave me alone" show relationships at their climax, and Pigeons and the crumbs is a great orchestral of emotion about life in London. Along with "City". Left Of the Middle includes her top 2 hits, Torn, Big mistake and smoke and her top 20 hit Wishing I was there. Each having a different impact and sound. Vocally, there is none other. Slamming her music rivals such as Kylie Minogue, and Alanis Morrisette, she's set to make a style of her own, a style which captures the heart. A brilliant album with incrediable emotion poured into it. An excellant buy.
