I don't know what to say.
I'm awed.I'm out of words.
I always was curious about Esthero based on thier impressionable
Dali-inspired video for their debut single "Heaven Sent",a soaring song mixing hip hop Jeat beats,etheral strings,indie rock angst,and Esthero's lovely Ming Xia-meets-Nelly Furtado voice.It was a beautiful thing.Esthero fell out of my mind until
an affilate reminded me of them.I picked up the album pronto and
The album is just,OFF THE HOOK! Esthero's heavenly,etheral vocals and Doc's airy hip hop-inspired grooves.It's just awe-inducing."Breath From Another" opens with the title track,a hypnotic,trip hop groove that drifts,featuring a rugged rhyme,
and an intoxicating flow,the song just floats into beauty.
Of course there's "Heaven Sent" as well as "That Girl",which features some well-placed trumpet parts."That Girl" was featured
in the 1998 slasher flick "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer".It was the only good thing in that movie.:) "Country
Livin'(The World I Know)","Shallow Me","Half A World Away",and
"Superheroes",and "Indigo Boy" all keep the otherwordly flow going.Aw man,I can't even explain to you how much I love this album.I haven't owned it in at least two weeks and it's already
a gem to me.Esthero is a BAADD woman!
If you ever are to get your hands on Esthero's debut,PLEASE do
YOURSELF a favor and pick it up.It's that good.
(P.S.Thanks so much Paula Jefferson!!)
