This review is from: Lights Out (Audio CD)
Many critics expected Lisa Marie Presley's debut single to be nothing more than a fleeting novelty - after all, as the daughter of the most celebrated entertainer of the last 50 years, it could hardly have been difficult for her to clinch a record deal.
The big surprise is: Lisa Presley is actually talented. She has a strong, husky, smoky voice, and also demonstrates potential as a songwriter on this self-penned track. It is catchy pop-rock with a hint of country thrown in, and, lyrically, deals with Lisa's heritage ('someone turned the lights out there in Memphis/that's where my family's buried and gone).
Lisa will never be as popular, influential or groundbreaking as her father was (no one will, for that matter). But, from the sounds of this, she stands a pretty good chance of becoming a credible artist.
