By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on March 4 2007
Format: Audio CD
It's a credit to Esthero's skills that her sultry debut is still remembered seven years after its release, and in the shadow of a warm, funky follow-up. Most albums of this type fade into obscurity.

But Canadian trip-hoppist Esthero, with the help of producer Doc, manages to create a unique musical experience in "Breath From Another": chilly trip-jazz, with sexy lyrics and some hip-hop flavourings. The songwriting can be hit-and-miss, but the music and Esthero's singing are wonderful.

It opens on a diverse note in the title track: slow trippy beats and waves, which rapidly rev up into a hip-hop sound. Esthero's voice starts off breathy, but after she launches into a throaty rap, her vocals gain substance and strength. "Don't compromise what's gold/For the soul you never sold," she croons over and over.

Several songs of the songs that follow could be classified as pop music, like the catchy "That Girl" and James-Bondian interlude "Flipher Overture." But Esthero never leaves behind trip-hop and hip-hop, both of which flicker up in various songs.

But other styles crop up over the course of the album: pure soft electronica, dancey jazz, trippy Latin, and others. The only unifying style here is trip-hop. As a result, a few songs simply don't fit in: "Country Livin' (The World I Know)" moves too slow and has too few beats thrown in, so it feels vaguely out of place.

Canadian Esthero herself sounds a lot like Icelandic pop star Emiliana Torrini, who also has made a career out of electic styles. Her voice can be throaty or sweet, depending on the song. Doc (with whom she has since parted ways) produced a beautiful array of songs for her to sing, with everything from electronica to harp.

I'm a person who prefers the now sort of dormant trip hop genre of music... That music style has always had a bit of tough time getting into mainstream which is fine, but it's also a shame with so many talented groups going unrecognized. Having said that, Esthero is a good amalgamation of trip hop, chill music, a pinch of rap, which I'm very picky about, and even a little hard rock. I particularly love the songs Breath From Another, Heaven Sent, and Country Livin. I think if anyone could get this style of music revived again it's Esthero.
She has an almost Bjork like voice at times, or a Lisa Stansfield feel, and there's a jazzy undercurrent which is cool and unique mixed with all the other sounds.
The first several songs or so (except for Anywayz) are great, good beats, definately worthy of playing in the car.. I'm disappointed in the 2nd half of the CD where the song quality seems to trail off except for a fairly decent Indigo Boy.
Overall though, it's hard to find a CD with more than one song worth playing so I don't regret buying it.

I remember hearing the song "country livin'" in the 5th grade and I was hooked! I loved the song and the only place I could find the CD was on the internet so I had to buy it. Esthero's music is like nothing I've ever heard before. Its so unique. They definately don't get enough air play/video play which is sad because this CD is the s***!
Breathe From Another- I love this song! I like the beats and the meaningful lyrics
Heaven Sent- Love this song to plus its the only video of theirs that I've seen of T.V
Anywayz- This song is cool. makes me wish I was on a beach somewhere
That Girl- I remember this song from the movie "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer". It fit perfectly for the movie scene
Country Livin'- The very 1st Esthero song I heard and my
FAVORITE. I love how the singers voice sounds
Half A world Away- another song that makes me wish I was on a beach!
Superheros- Love, Love, Love! I've never heard a song like this before. Its really sexy.
Swallow Me- Wow! This song is too good! I can't even really descirbe it!
Don't think twice about buying this CD, just do it! Esthero, more please!

Once upon a time there was a restless girl who searched high and low for music to suit her style...then hark...as she was nonchalantly flipping through the entertainment section of Time Magazine, she happened upon an article of a rising Canadian artist. She snorked at the mention of 'trip hop' but she was intrigued...
The ingenue bought the album and today is celebrating her 4th anniversary...
The album is a lush indulgence. She takes you somewhere else. On every track, there is melodic teleportation. Esthero's voice is restless and beguiling. It's almost bjorkesque (a subdued bjork though). Almost sadesque. Of course, I'm going to say that she has a style all her own. There's something about the way she sings that makes you question her age. Her voice possesses a sultry maturity that belies the number of candles on her birthday cake. Just to prove how distinctive the sound of her voice is in my ear...when i bought Nelly Furtado's "Whoa, Nelly!", my first impression was that on some tracks she was attempting to affect esthero's vibe. Then lo and behold, in the credits, Nelly thanks Esthero for their hours of singing together. It's a damn shame she didn't get the kind of exposure that Furtado has been getting. Esthero truly has a lot to offer. They just aren't ready, girl...
And Doc...how could I forget thee...The greatest trick that Doc pulled off was not making this music sound like techno. He took bits and pieces of different kinds of music and fused it together without making it grotesque like an italian wedding. one second you were being entertained with the strum of guitars, then violins the next, then cut to some wicked hip hop beats and esthero's voice like gravy waxes over it masterfully.
