5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, unique and a great debut, 28 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Finally Woken (Audio CD)
This girl just came out of nowhere, the first time i heard anything about her was when she appeared on 'Music From The OC:Mix 1' and i kinda liked the song. Then when she appeared on the mix 2 album with a brilliant cover of 'Maybe I'm Amazed' i started to think 'who is this girl?'. Then i saw 'They' on the TV and that just blew me away, it is a fantastic song, the best song on the album i would say, its funky, you can dance to it, its great pop but with an edge. Other great songs on the album include 'Come on Closer' which is a fantastic song with heavy beats, a killer chorus, and mysterious whispered lyrics. 'Save Me' has a brilliant reggae vibe, its very different to any other pop i have heard before, its certainly not squeaky clean. 'Wish I' is such a happy song, you could imagine listening to this on a hot summers day while relaxing in the garden, perfect chill out music, love it.
Any comparisons to Dido are completely unjust, okay so there voices are freakishly similar but their sound is totally different. I really like Dido but all her songs seem to sound very similar, this is not the case with Jem, every song has its own unique style, there isnt really a protruding sound throughout the album, every song brings a different feel to the album.
Its a definite must buy for 2005, Its the best album i've heard in 2005 by far and i expect that we will be seeing a lot more from Jem in the future
