A moving, inspirational piece.,
This review is from: Innocent Eyes (Audio CD)
When Delta released her first single, Born to try, it didn't really strike a cord with me. Her next single, Lost without you, was catchy and stuck in my head. But it wasn't enough. It wasn't until i heard that brilliant song, Innocent Eyes, that i relised how great her songs really were. I rushed out and bought the album straight away.
This is a truly fantastic record. Delta has shown that she is not a cheesy soap star who just wants extra pennies in her pocket. She co-wrote most of the songs and plays the piano on every track. Ovbiously this album isn't for goth head-bangers or people with a dislike for artists that can actually sing and aren't manufactured. Lets just say you have to listen to this record to believe it.
By far the best tracks on the album are Innocent eyes and Running away. Innocent eyes is very autobiographical and moving, and the catchy chorus is just superb. While with Running away, the pop beats at the beginning are nothing like the soft, mellow chorus. An original song. Born to try and Lost without you are the hit singles and make for easy listening. Predictable is my third favourite track and really comes into its own with its rock pop chorus and drum line.And Butterfly, Not me, Not i and In my own time are lovely ballads for when your having a dramatic time!
But the album does disapoint with the end tracks such as Longer. Don't get me wrong they're nice tracks. But thats it, nice. Nice and boring. These songs drift past you like a piece of litter, never to be seen again. If you like piano soul ballads with emotional lyrics then you'll still like thes tracks. But it just didn't do it for me, sorry.
So to end it, Innocent eyes is a good album with some strong songs. Just a shame about the tracks Longer, This is not me, My big mistake and Will you fall for me. They were a let down.
But whoever heard of a perfect album?
