This is a review based on 2 of the released singles (Life and Faze) and from hearing the songs in concert.
Aselin was introduced to the public as a young Celtic/pop singer with her Sony album "Sweet is the Melody" on the classical-crossover Odyssey label. This album showcased the beauty of her voice with mature interpretation, and traditional Celtic sounds. Aided by a CBC/PBS TV special, and considerable airplay, her beautiful ballads like "Out of the Woods" and the Christmas hit "The Gift" (A poor orphan girl named Maria) were enjoyed throughout Canada, the U.S. and Japan.
It has been 2 and a half years since that album, and Aselin is now 14. She is now with Sony Music Canada (now Sony/BMG), with a more pop oriented sound. Aselin plays acoustic guitar in concert on some songs, and is backed by a more traditional pop/rock ensemble. The songs are co-written by Aselin and Dave Thompson (formerly of Wave).
How are new and old fans going to like the new sound? It is wonderful! Aselin's voice is stronger and more confident, but hasn't lost any of the sparkle which has captivated listeners during her younger years. The lyric themes come from Aselin herself, and allow this thoughtful teen to communicate from her heart.
The two standout songs from the album are "Faze" and "Bigger than Me". Faze is a song about a friend's parents' divorce and it's affect. As catchy as it is meaningful, this one could well become a big hit. The text of the song would make an especially poignant video.

Aselin. Not an ordinary name, but very fitting, as Aselin is not an ordinary girl. First, not everyone can sing with the power, grace and beauty Aselin's voice holds. Second, how many 14 year olds have 2 successful cd's, a few hit singles and countless incredible performances under their belts? Her songwriting talent is not ordinary either. It is not very often that you find a young girl sitting down to write folk/pop music with some of the country's greatest writers, nor is it often you realize that these songs are coming straight from the heart. Rather than being packaged into teeny-bopper songs about heartbreak, Aselin writes about what she knows, and thus, her songs are very easy to relate to. The first single, "Life", talks about trying to make it through tough times and do something right - a struggle so many young teens I know are going through right now. Almost everyone who knows someone with divorced parents can relate to "Faze", and anyone who thinks things are happening too quickly in the world understands "Had to Grow Up". People who argue with their friends and then regret it will find comfort in "Stupid Things" and "Thank you (4 Breaking my Heart)" and "The Friend in Me" also describe typical situations for dating teenagers. This kind of truth is not found in the average pop album now, yet another thing which separates Aselin from the rest. Still, some of they lyrics can be a bit juvenile and after a while, I've found the pull to listen to the album lessening. That doesn't mean I appreciate her talent any less though, and one thing I appreciate even more is how Aselin is not the ordinary pop star. Instead of getting caught up in the glitz and glamour, she is remarkably level-headed, and, as she writes on her website, "at the end of the day, I'm still Azi!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Still The Littlest Angel March 28 2005
Format:Audio CD
Aselin Debison has become very interesting to me since I first encountered her music while studying composition and piano a little while back. I have heard that many of her fans are not happy that Aselin has chosen to go a different route with this music, but to tell you the truth, I think her roots are still there. If you look at the melody of the Chorus of "Life" you will find that Aselin has played around with an old folk music friend: the pentatonic scale. She has used a pentatonic scale and also inserted a leading tone here and there so she switches back from pentatonicism to diatonicism. This ingenious little tonal construction helps to elevate the chorus well above the rest of the piece. This makes the chorus much more "exuberant" if you will. In fact, Aselin later takes that melody in the Chorus and expands upon it leading into the bridge section which makes for an extremely exciting change towards the end of the song. Now, all of this is indeed dressed in pop music harmonies, but it just goes to show you that, whether these things were intentional or not, Aselin is still highly influenced by Cape Breton and its musicians.
Aselin has opened up a whole new world to me with regards to music. First of all, let me say that I have never met her. As far as her personal life, whether she is a good, Godly woman, I don't know. However, her professional life is second to none. Here is a girl who is not even 15 yet, and she is already working with professional musicians, and in fact takes long tours all over Canada doing promotional work and giving concerts. From some of the stuff I found on her internet site, she also is on her basketball team and is learning to play the guitar.
