*Bold-italic song titles indicates my favorites
This is a very good package - in a CD.
Sarah's voice is still as beautiful, and this album - sounds to me, it's like a British artist instead of an American (she's Canadian, I know, but they are in similar league).
Yep, it reminds me of Dido, too.
The album started with an energetic "Awakening", it's a fast song, as if someone is rushing (music) and her voice is like jumping here and there/ fading in and out thru out the whole music.
(Yes, above is a totally random statement, so you go figure out the music to feel it yourself)
The second song, "Illusion of Bliss" - reminds me of Bee Gees, somehow. Just replace Bee Gees' voice and you can call it a Bee Gees song :P
Third song - it's like a Britpop, my favorite :)
Fourth song - A bit jazzy a bit of Britpop and her signature voice, of course
(I'm a bit lazy to write the rest) I've gotta tell you, the first 5 songs had already blown off my mind.
So it is a good album, don't expect something great like "Adia", "Building a Mystery" or "Angel" - because this is an album in different league/flavour now.
Just like you won't want to compare The Beatles' "Please Please Me" with "Abbey Road"
I hope you get what I mean :)
