Rachel Fuller - Cigarettes And Housework - Cd
Top Customer Reviews
"Into My Heart" begins with a very delicate and classically beautiful piano and drifts rock style into an intense obsessive lyric sung delicately and innocently. "Ghost In The Room" is a nice twist on the familar style of the soft catchy pop rock song with lyrics of regret.
The whole album is just filled to the brim with decadently dark and hauntingly beautiful music that perfectly combines rock and classical to produce something that sears right through to the soul. It's the best album I've bought this year.
Never really reveals itself - although all the right ingredients appear to be there. Its the only one i own so dont know if she has better work out there - but also depends on your tastes - do not take heed of the Tori and Alanis comparison. They are both a lot edfier in their approach and delivery of music.

The writing is subtle, though, as mundane, everyday objects, take on multi-layers of meaning - sofas, phones, cigarettes. Still, those over-arrangements weigh down any buoyancy.
Back to my review title: "Beautiful Invisible" is a phenomenal success, transcending comparison with the above-named/or any other artists, and the Bonus Track, "Jigsaw" has the straight-ahead, rocking thing going that just about all the tracks should have had.
Pete Townshend on acoustic guitar (?) - how about a partial album re-do with Pete on acoustic guitar and Rachel on acoustic keyboard - and up-front vocals on all the tracks.
(Maybe same the instrumental "Lament" for the CD-single B-side. Nice work, though, Jonathan Williams).
On this album, my favorites are each very different from each other. I love "Into My Heart" with its catchy chorus, the aforementioned "Spin" which is mesmerizing, "Imperfection" which will bring tears to your eyes, "Happy to Be Sad," and all the other tracks. Rachel has more songs to share. Rachel's demos are better than almost anything you can hear on the radio these days.
I think if you are someone who loves music, you'll love Rachel's songs. Her voice sometimes reminds me of Sarah McLachlan, she has that crystal clear, beautiful tone and perfect pitch. In the title song, you can hear the Joni Mitchell influence, but Rachel puts her own touch in every song she sings. She surrounds herself with the best musicians, and the production here is brilliant.
Give her a listen, you'll find yourself ordering this CD.
"Cigarettes & Housework" is a 45 minute pop/rock gem. The music is a blend of pop, rock, folk, and a hint of jazz (interesting note: Barnes & Noble had this cd categorized as a jazz album which I beg to differ on). Rachel reminded me of the late Eva Cassidy at times during the album but with a much clearer voice. I almost could hear hints of Tori Amos here and there. I enjoyed all the songs immensely. For me the standout tracks on the cd are "Praying", "Eat Me", "Outside My Window", and "Imperfection". The production of this album is perfect. It is clean yet not overproduced like a lot of albums are today. I look forward to hearing more from this talented singer.
