3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent.... BUT, 13 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: As Day Follows Night (Digipak) (Audio CD)
Reading the other reviews here, I guess I'm inviting disagreement by only giving this three stars. Why? I really like the songs. Her voice is haunting, lovely, and perfectly pitched. The production is classy. It was only after several listens that I began to skip tracks halfway through them, because they are so tiring on the ears. Sarah's voice is so distinctive, she sings in the same register all of the time - and she rarely actually stops singing to let the songs "breathe". Even in short songs, it begins to grate. I challenge anyone to get through to the end of "Is my Baby Yours" without getting this feeling - and it's only three-and-a-half minutes long! Have you even had a tasty bite from a buffet and then eaten too many of the same kind? This album is like having a 12-course meal entirely of prawn vol-au-vents. As a result, only about three songs have managed to stay on the ipod....

Couldn't agree more. Having seen her live I was taken back by how much better her and her material was when compared to her recordings. The other thing is that she needs to do is "lighten up" a bit. Good as she is, most of her songs are so depressing with the emphasis on drums really grating after about 10mins in. A change of direction in a more accessible vein would work a treat.
