5.0 out of 5 stars LoneLady, you are not alone, 21 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Nerve Up (Audio CD)
I've been waiting for this album knowing it was going to be extremely good, having heard the 8-track versions of many of the songs. Julie Campbell has developed a distinct style of spikey guitar riffs like shards of glass and a commanding vocal presence - not necessarily loud, just delivered in a way which insists that you pay attention. There are intriguing sounds lurking in these tracks. While there is no actual bass guitar on the entire album, the bass effects at times bring to mind the tolling of a great rubber bell, so play it with the low end cranked up. In a couple of cases I miss the rough-edged punchiness of the more primitive original tracks, where the guitar is more in your face due to there only a drum machine and sparse keyboards to compete with. However, I count myself fortunate to have both versions as they lend themselves to different moods. This is a fine debut album from a very talented artiste who deserves far more recognition than she is currently receiving. Hopefully this will soon change.
