she’s written forty minutes of “I Do”
“You can trust I’ve never felt it like I feel it now”
Pretty soft peddle pop
International News: So 12 years after Operation Enduring Freedom, Iraq is back to Sunni Versus Shiite’s with the US on the same side as Iran for some weird reason and Afghanistan is gonna fall to the Taliban. The moral? Colonization doesn’t work.
Three really good albums here: Colbie, Shinobi and the Shoe, plus jack White which, well I’m thinking of doing a full length review but for now, it has too many weak spots. I still prefer Colbie any way.
Live It Up – Spoon – A heavy blues from the semi-popular indie band; not my scene, it is neither beaty nor meaty enough but it has a uniqueness to it: it sounds like nothing else only not quite as good – B
Gypsy Heart Side A EP – Colbie Caillat – A long time fan of the pop singer, this five song 18 minute EP has nary a clunker in the lot: a sweet sound giving Taylor Swift a run for her money. “Blaze” is fabulous – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – A-
The problem here is much the same as the problem on the entire album: the songs aren’t there. Oh the singing is powerful and felt, the instrumentation first rate, the atitude a poerfect mesh of here and now and then, but the song can’t sell it – B-
Still, it should break huge for her it hooks hard and Colbie doesn’t oversing it, which is a miracle, because it begs to be oversung, instead she allows her falsetto on the bridge to signify deep emotion.
