Has anyone downloaded her new EP? I think it's BRILLIANT!
She's using her powerful voice well, and in a style of music that's mainstream accessible without being too run-of-the-mill "pop." And the live videos that have been popping up on youtube are equally impressive, I think! Especially her use of the voice looping Kaoss pad.
I have been listening to this non-stop. Just WOW. The whole EP is powerful - they are all brilliant songs in their different ways. I can't stop listening. <3
The Rise and How Not To Be Surprised When You're A Ghost are amazing introspective tracks that ooze maturity. Her vocals are the best they have ever been.
Beautiful Wreck and Say It's True are more upbeat. Say It's True is the weakest, if I had to pick out a weak track. It has simple pop hooks which you'd expect to hear on mainstream radio. All the other tracks are alternative songs; edgy, fresh and unforgettable.
What a shame that the industry and critics are ignoring Charlotte Church just as she brings out her strongest material and with her voice at its astounding best.
Charlotte is my biggest love right now, and I'm super excited to read that she is bringing out 3 more EPs throughout the next 12 months! Keep 'em coming Charl'!
