Violet Journey
Format: Audio CD|Change


on 22 December 2012
She recorded all this pretty much all alone, playing all instruments. Songs are good, solos are amazing (she is a guitar hero for sure), and she has a nice voice. Only thing I don t like here is how most songs suddenly end: it is beyond belief how the final solos are sometimes cut off, the production should have avoided that. Her 2nd solo CD is more polished in that respect, but this is raw stuff, almost garage "one girl band", and I recommend it heartily for its authenticity. The CD is quite expensive I think, but is totally worth it. Orianthi has got all it takes to front a great band. Respect!

I only bought this because I saw Orinathi play on YouTube by accident,she was playing at NAMM 2006,"Lights of Manos"
I've never heard anyone play like this including Santana,one of my favorites.
It moved me and I had to hear all her other songs too.
"Out of reach" is another one to look out for on the album,she sings well too and the guitar solo is extraordinary,makes my hairs stand on end.
All the numbers are very good and you wont waste your money on this one.
Orianthi plays all the instruments on this apart from a few drum parts in some numbers,very talented lady and good looking too.
I feel this is much better than the later Believe album,which seems to sound like Avril Lavigne on steroids,a loud pop sounding album in general......
Violet journey is natural,has a lot of feeling and is lovely to listen too,it proves Orianthi has all the talent she needs to produce an excellent album.

One word says it all, brilliant. Best debut album ever,it takes some topping,but get out and get 'Believe' because she does!

This is Orianthi's first album, prior to the more recent Believe. Those of you who have not yet discovered this brilliant rock guitarist should perhaps go straight to Believe, a truly sensational album. Then you can be a bit more forgiving of this first effort, which though very good value is a little less acccomplished. Perhaps some of the rough edges are down to Orianthi playing all the instruments herself on most tracks which, though laudable, is a trifle ambitious. The title track is probably the strongest on the album, and others clearly demonstrate Orianthi's brilliant guitar work and catchy riffs. This girl is brilliant, so don't hesitate to add this to your collection and, if you haven't got Believe yet, buy that as well - you'll save yourself some time later!

This is a relatively early effort on Orianthi's part - she has improved in leaps and bounds during the last 4 years. It also has a very studio like feel - I personally prefer to watch her live performances on YouTube - for example Lights of Manos or Here on Earth where the 'on the spot' improvisations just flow wonderfully out of her talented hands and her beautiful PRS guitars.
Still - an excellent collection of her earlier music which is a pleasure to listen to and I am looking forward with anticipation to her first Geffen record, hopefully to include 'Little Miss Lonely'. Best of success Orianthi - you deserve it! The world is your oyster.

If you appreciate guitar play (and some of the tracks are pure instrumentals) you might want to check it out. I actually like this album more than Believe. Believe sounds too much like Kelly Clarkson on steroids, this one's got way more personality and sounds better.
