5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - Eclectic and Uplifting, 18 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Desperate Character (Audio CD)
I feel this album is possibly one of the most shockingly under publicised records ever, and I say this as an 18 year old who only discovered 'Desperate Character' about a month ago. Firstly, as ever, Kirsty's voice is absolutely perfect and so pleasant to listen to, but also highly distinctive and not containing all the vocal tricks that many singers use, giving her voice a very honest tone. Her harmonies on 'Desperate Character' are superbly crafted and allow her voice to become an instrument with the backing track, something that is not at all easy to achieve. This is most evident on my favourite track of the album, 'Teenager in Love', which cleverly combines a sort of lilting "Hawaiian" feel with the lyrical themes of the Shangri-Las but in a more witty manner. Throughout the album, the instrumentation is very well produced and Kirsty makes excellent use of the trumpet. I feel like 'Desperate Character' is the perfect introduction to her music. 'Mexican Sofa' alludes to the Latin influences more prevalent in the album 'Tropical Brainstorm', whilst 'Chip Shop' adopts the country and western theme that later re-appears in 1989's 'Don't Come the Cowboy with me Sonny Jim'. Aside from the aforementioned 'Teenager in Love', my personal highlights include 'Clock Goes Round', 'Falling For Faces', 'Just One Look' and 'Real Ripper'.
