Kylie, Natalie, Holly & now the fantastic Delta!,
This review is from: Innocent Eyes (Audio CD)
Delta Goodrem is another pop-gem sparking out of Australian daytime soap, Neighbours but she’s a lot different from her fellow pop predecessors. Kylie gives us the throbbing dance floor pop tracks; Natalie gives us her loud rock tunes, while Holly continues to give us her sultry club tracks. Delta is a completely unique, outstanding artist on ‘Innocent Eyes,’ concentrating more on the harmonious, enormous breakthrough ballads, which totally suit her. The album sounds quite like a coming of age album with relationship issues, falling in love, everyday situations, and I could see myself hearing some of these songs in teenage dramas such as Dawson’s Creek, Sweet Valley High and Roswell High. This is one the best albums I bought from last year!
(1)Born To Try-(10/10) This uptempo ballad which unleashed Delta’s musical talents!
(2)Innocent Eyes-(9/10) This sultry piano driven tune is about maintaining innocence we had in childhood. With great, thoughtful lyrics and good vocals, it’s a good song.
(3)No Not Me, Not I-(10/10)A haunting, piano ballad with angelic vocals from Delta. This track is about not feeling disheartened by a deceitful lover or a breakup. A powerful ballad with charming music and forceful vocals from Delta.
(4)Throw It Away-(8/10) Guitars and a bouncy beat make this a sassy track, which is about not realising what you have got until you’ve thrown it away.. Nice track.
(5)Lost Without You-(10/10)The fantastic catchy breakthrough ballad which reached #2 in the charts! Excellent lyrics and great singing from Delta!
(6)Predictable-(9/10) A feisty, fierce rock influenced track about realising the lies and cheats of a friend or lover. It has a very funky beat and suspense sounding music.
(7)Butterfly-(10/10) An elegant, eclectic sounding, relaxing ballad symbolising someone (a lover) who is a butterfly. Nice lyrics, vocals and great music.
(8)In My Own Time-(10/10) This ballad is driven in a country style, which quite suits Delta. The verses are slow with piano playing and build a climax up to a sweet chorus with great vocals. It’s a beautiful track, you can hear yourself listening to when driving along a road during the night.
(9)My Big Mistake-(10/10)An uptempo, summery, happy sounding track. It has great flowing choruses and the verses are just captivating! A great positive song putting a smile on the face!
(10)This Is Not Me-(9/10) A great anticipating chorus makes this track a good one. It sounds a bit rocky with the music and Delta’s vocals are strong.
(11)Running Away-(9/10) Great uptempo track reminding me of The Corrs.
(12)A Year Ago Today-(8/10) A nice meaningful track remembering the past, learning from it and foreseeing the future. It’s a sweet, slow ballad.
(13)Longer-(10/10)Uptempo, positive, happy sounding track sounding a bit like “My Big Mistake”. This one is about wanting to spend more time with a desired person to get to know them better. Delta’s voice is strong and the chorus is powerful.
(14)Will You Fall For Me?-(8/10) A slow, charming ballad, with a nice flowing style, bringing an end to this fantastic album.
The album clearly shows Delta as a superb singer with a fantastic voice. In some songs, Delta tries hard to reach the Mariah-type high notes, but doesn’t quite make it. Nevertheless, she’s a great singer with a great voice many would die for! Her voice is vibrant and versatile, that she could even go into RnB and dance. With Delta, she’s true to her music, reminding me of Leann Rimes, and unlike many of the pop-acts today, she is not carried away with the pop-hype or pop-lifestyle. ‘Innocent Eyes’ demonstrates her as being innocent and predictable, and you almost know what to expect from her. A great album, from a great singer! Go & buy this now!
