Excellent start, but then....
on 11 January 2013
I desperately wanted to love this album. I was all ready to give it five stars before I'd even listened to it. And then...
...and then I listened to it. The first few tracks are brilliant. Such a unique voice and style and obviously a gifted song writer. And then...they all started to sound the same. The problem is that she HAS such a unique voice, and everything starts to sound very samey after a while. I notice this in art galleries when you see lots of works of art together in one place - individually they are fantastic; pulled all together into one place, they all start to look the same.
I am gutted by this. I'll be checking out later albums to see if she's expanded her range at all. I think she has terrific talent and - on the basis of this - is so close to deserving all the plaudits she gets.
