By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 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.

This disk does a wonderful job of blending hip-hop, rock-ish, and latin rhythms and sounds into a pallet of very smooth music that seems to get better with repeated listening.
The singer has a gorgeous voice that sort of reminds me of Björk's or Emiliana Torrini's, and she can sing out, as well, like both of said singers.
The opening song is sort of Nelly Furtado-ish but a lovely listening experience, and "Heaven Sent" is a great rocking, stirring song with perceptive lyrics. Other songs such as "That Girl", "Country Livin' (The World I Know)" and "Swallow Me" retain a sort of jazzy sound, while the breezy "Half A World Away" really shows Latin influence.
Well done, and I know I'm sure to love it even more over time :)

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 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
I'm speechless...
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!!)
