Could have been braver!,
This review is from: Made of Bricks (Audio CD)
I've been listening to this girls stuff for a while now and have, at times been blown away by her work. This album is good - but it could have been GREAT. Take the song "Birds" for example, if you are lucky enough to unearth the live version on the "caroline's a victim" single, you'll hear a heartstoppingly beautiful and tender song of clumsy young love. This album's version of "birds" is horribly overproduced and loses everything that the song is about in the process.
That sums up a lot of this album, however there are some songs here that showcase Nash's quirky style a treat, Mariella, Foundations and Nicest Thing being the best.
