It's hard for me to choose my favourite songs because I like every single one. But I'd have to say "Colleen" is definitely up there. It doesn't strike you at first because it's slower, but the lyrics are honest and engaging. Another favourite is "Double Agent", which is quicker and fun to sing along with. Amanda has added some pop flavour to her style without overpowering her voice and detracting from her charm and the honesty of her lyrics. If you want my advice, don't hesitate to buy this CD. It just gets better every time you listen.
Admittedly, I had to get accustomed to the new style she has taken into use. If you are a fan, you will hear a totally different Amanda. But, I also have to admit, that after hearing the album twice or three times, the songs started to really grow on me. They have done so in such a manner that this is now by far my favourite album of her three.
What I find most astounding, is the fact that she can get away with making such an album. We knew her with her rock-edge from those first two albums. In this album, most of the guitar work is in the song 'Sunday Morning After', which is one of my favourite tracks. The pop and even R&B sound she is trying out here also seem to fit her voice.
Personally, I think that the entire album is great and not a single song is bad, from the catchy 'Sunday Morning After' to the R&B-like 'Double agent' to the almost hauntingly beautiful 'Inside the Tornado'...
As said in the title, if this is story telling time for Amanda, I hope she writes a book with as many pages as the new Harry Potter!
All the songs on the new one are great! i love the voice inside, colleen, sunday morning after, love is my witness.. and all the rest! its too hard to pick a favourite! :)
If you haven't bought this cd yet, then you really should! yea, its different from her other too, but thats not a bad thing. You can stay they same forever.. and she was playing around with different sounds, and its awesome! :)
and i cant wait to hear more stuff from her, and nothing she ever does could be bad!! :)
