3.0 out of 5 stars Becomes monotonous and bland!, 12 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Glorious (Audio CD)
I keep hearing all about Laura Wright EVERYWHER! Is there no-one else?
So I bought her latest CD which has the same material as a lot of other CDs in this genre.
The voice is lovely and she sounds quite beautiful - sometimes!!
But, I am sorry there was no excitement or deep feeling. It was all sung in the same monotonous way
with no personality or flashes of inspiration. The top notes are thin and sometimes shrill and not good. I have heard loads of singing in the music Colleges in London. Also watched many school
and colleges Opera scenes there. Laura sounded good on "Songs of Praise.
This is not of the same standard as what I have heard. How can she be "The hottest new talent in Classical music" Where have you been hiding and listening?

Pretty voice, nice work, but very AVERAGE! I have heard better singing in all girl choirs up to age 18!
Would make a fantastic chorister. The Opera Babes CD is better though!

My thoughts entirely. Dont know what all the fuss is about.Maybe Its because some station is pushing her to the hilt. The rendition of Benedictus is really embarrasing. Born Free is the worst version I have ever heard in my life. She has no power in her voice at all just a singer singing the wrong songs. When I first heard her she sounded like someone sat behind you in church just doing their best to keep in tune. All the fuss over nothing in my opinion. I may get slaughtered here but I am a well mature musician who knows what hes talking about.
