Heaven In This Hell is a very different animal!
Produced by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics it has a much more raw, yet refined sound and the song-writing is more mature. Ori's voice is much stronger too, probably due to rocking out with The Coop for the past 18 months. Blues-rock is the overall genre but there are some harder rock, like the title track and Frozen, and a couple of tracks with a country feel them, no doubt inspired by being mostly recorded in Nashville. This is the real Orianthi and I think she's made a record that SHE wanted to make, rather than her record company.
After the first listen, there wasn't one track that had be thinking 'hmmm, that needs a few more listens' and after multiple plays, it just gets better. Listening to it through some decent headphones reveals some lovely textures that you don't hear when it's blasting out through speakers.
This isn't just about Ori shredding on every track, she plays some lovely 12-string accoustic, banjo and there's even some violin and harmonica thrown in.
Orianthi has something to live up to having been a respected and loved member of a certain Alice Cooper's band and now being mentored and produced by the taskmaster and genius that is Dave Stewart. Has to be said early doors that this is a relationship that has enormous potential, especially when you look at the song writing credits. The two are clearly in sync here. Stewart's production is razor sharp, tight and spacious allowing Orianthi to shine both vocally and musically, equally the rhythm section is given room to breathe.
Rather than give a track by track breakdown I've focused on tracks that demonstrate the diversity of styles that sit so well together.
If you want rock then the opening salvo of the title track, Heaven in This Hell will sure as hell please. It quite literally explodes from the speakers, a chugging driving riff sitting under a raw angry vocal delivered at great pace but then right at the end a wonderful little cameo of acoustic bliss. You Don't Wanna Know follows in similar rocky vein with a wrenching impassioned six string solo. Just when you think you have it sussed, Orianthi pops up with a catchy little melody on the Banjo, joyous!
The alt country feel is certainly to the fore on Rock, very laid back, very melodic, light and airy and for me, reminiscent of the Lady Antebellum sound.Read more ›
