This review is from: Everything's Eventual (Audio CD)
This lp is one of the...nah, this is my all-time favourite album among every album in music history (i've listened to a LOT of artists).I know some people will be like:"pff what's he sayin'?!" but that's the simple truth:i just love this record.Let me tell you why:
1.Fantasy: A cool rocky tune.Definitely not the most interesting cut.A good start though.
2.Don't worry: How many times have i cried listening to it...This song is breezy and the vocal harmonies relaxing.Moreover,i really love the lyrics.A classic.
3.Hallelujah: Very interesting.The music has that mystic feel we've known with madonna's "ray of light".The chorus lifts me up every time.A powerful song.
4.Everything eventually: At first,this tune might seem poor musically but if you look closer,you'll realise it's in fact rather interesting.Same mystic feel.The lyrics can be thought dumb,but think it over:it's not.
5.M.W.A.: Stands for "mystic wisdom of the ancients" and yes,it has a mystic feel.An upbeat track which could have been featured on all saints "saints and sinners".It's a kind of rap with a good chorus.Original and a little underground.(i said a little and i mean it)
6.Ring-a-ding-ding: Do you know what a pop masterpiece is? If you don't just listen to this song and you'll learn in no time.Well you'll learn in a little more than 6 min.Strong vocals, Marvellous strings, Cool lyrics, An exquisite darker feel and yeah yeah a mystic feel.Just listen.
7.Supernaturally: Hmm...this song could have been a b-side on some madonna's singles from "music".A song of average quality, but it's addictive enough to make it worth being on the album.
8.All grown up: A song which could be sung walking down the streets of London on a rainy night: that should give you an idea of the atmosphere of this cut.There's a mystic,dark and rocky feel about it.
9.Waiting for your love: same as supernaturally,though a little more addictive and interesting.
10.5 am: Guitar-led,strong vocals only by Natalie,cool lyrics(nothing extraordinary though):it becomes a little grandiose in the end,and i love it.
11.Long long road: This song is kinda strange.It doesn't convince entirely:the music,the ideas and the cool vocals are all there,but it's like an unfinished track(yes,a filler).But even with undeveloped ideas, i still like it.
12.Anyone: Aaaah... How i love this song.It's piano-led,with that same old mystic feel,those same old beautiful vocals.It's great chillin',refined music featuring very personal lyrics:it's the only time on the album that we get to know more about the sisters.That's rather cool.
13.Blow my mind: Cool lyrics, a rocky sound,great vocals as always,a mystic feel...Pure Appleton.
As you can see,the album is not perfect.(not at all!!).But what this makes my all-time favourite album is the girls' voices.These are the voices that touch me the most in the whole music industry.Why? I don't know,but maybe that's what we call magic.
