What went wrong?
on 12 July 2012
Ok.Great songs,well written and tuneful,memorable,singalong,mostly upbeat,feel good stuff BUT,what went wrong?
What went terribly wrong for me was this,Kelly's voice.It's so strangled in the production.Makes me want to weep.
By the time I was halfway through the album I had to switch it off for a break.It's just so unfortunate because the songs work and the melody's are strong.I listened to the album about ten times,maybe more,trying to figure out what it was that just didnt 'gel' and I came to that conclusion.
Kelly is by far one of the most amazing singers around,vocally superior to most,why drown it?
Be honest,if this album was re-done acoustically,giving that voice the space it needs to breathe,I would wager you would think it worth investigating further,and I reckon you would enjoy it far more.I know I would.
Such a shame.
Next album,give the girl room and treat that voice with the respect it deserves.
