Hands Down One of the Best Cds of 2005!,
This review is from: Wreck of the Day (Audio CD)
Anna Nalick I first found out on a radio station, I heard her song Breathe (2AM) once- twice- then bought the album and now have heard it over a thousand times. I love the way Nalick speaks in her song Breathe and how it reached out to me. Not just the lyrics touched me- it was her voice- how strong it is and beautiful the song is altogether made me hear this new talent. I was excited to get the c.d, hoping the rest of the album would not disappoint and I can say it did not. While so many music critics are so harshly claiming that Breathe is the best song on here and that the rest of the c.d. does not hold up- I and so many other new Nalick fans strongly disagree. There are so many other amazing songs on here that hold up Nalick's first single quite well in my opinion. Some of my favorites are:
Satellite- Her voice is just powerful in this song. This song confirmed my decision to buy this album.
Forever Love- Beautiful song, and she sings it just right.
In The Rough- Her new single, and what a strong track it is. Very catchy, very honest.
In My Head- I believe this is probably, aside from Satellite and Breathe, my favorite song. It is just very beautiful the way she made this song.
Catalyst- Slow, and very introspective. I found myself growing very attached to this song.
Consider This- A great song to wrap up the album, more fast, with attitude.
Other good songs worth mentioning are Citadel, Paper Bag, and Wreck of the Day. The only song I never really got into is Bleed, but I don't hate it either. I usually skip it to get to catalyst though.
This album so far for me is the best album of 2005- rich with strong vocals, introspective and touching lyrics, and fresh new talent worth knowing. Smart pop/ rock fans- get this.
