5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars? Yes, really!!, 22 Aug. 2001
This review is from: Dear Frustrated Superstar - REPROMOTION (Audio CD)
People compare Nerina with Alanis and other angst-y rocker types, and I agree witht ehm to an extent,but her real comparisons should lie amongst the pop/rock elite where clever lyricists and wonderful musicians appear. I can add four definite comparisons to the list: Annie Lennox, Tori Amos, Kate Bush and Kirsty MacColl. Ms Pallot certainly does not sound a lot like any of those artists (apart from maybe Tori Amos in the pianist comparison), but she certainly has the wit and cleverness aswell as the melodies to give any of these greats a run for their money.
I have talked about and listened to very little else since buying the album upon its release on Monday, and I would definitely call myself a real fan of Nerina's work - the album is absolutely astonishing. There's so many outstanding tracks to list - the singles "Patience" and "Alien" are great, and "Someday Soon", "Watch Out Billie", "Jump" and "Blood Is Blood" are all absolutely stunning pieces of grown-up pop.
I'm going to wait a while before definitely calling this the best album I've ever bought, because I have to think seriously about "Dear Frustrated Superstar"'s ability to overtake Annie Lennox's "Diva" and Eddi Reader's "Eddi Reader" as the best album in my collection...
