A Fine Frenzy One Cell In The Sea
Released July 17, 2007
VH1 does some good things every once in a while. A few years ago it was playing that Anna Nalick song 'Breathe' a zillion times so I could hear it and subsequently love it. I loved it so much I went and bought the cd, and was left with a kind of ehhh feeling. Bummer, right? Well fast forward to a few weeks ago when a random Tivoing of a VH1 music show looking for new mellow artists brought me the video for A Fine Frenzy's 'Almost Lover'. A beautiful, haunting song, highlighted by a pretty simple piano melody and this girl's (Allison Sudol) vocal skills and lyrics. Actually, this is probably my favorite song of right now. Anyway, I gave the entire cd a listen and I was really pleasantly surprised to find other songs that were actually good..the girl can write herself a hook. I love me some hooks. A great cd for the upcoming fall season, packed with a nice mix of ballad-y and slightly more up-tempo songs..I might actually go buy this one! Honestly, I'm not much in the mood to write any reviews right now, but I just really think people should listen to the Almost Lover song, it's sosoo good. This even has potential of showing up here again innn about 3 months. OoOo
PS. This thing has 32 reviews on Amazon and a still a 5-star average. That's gotta mean something, right?
