I first saw Lili Haydn on Josh Groban's PBS special, and thought it would be great to get a copy of her Light Blue Sun disc when I saw it at a chain store. I expected something similar to his music or maybe the likes of Bond and Joshua Bell. Did I get a huge surprise!
What is Lili trying to prove anyway? That she's a reject auditionee for the Corrs? She's a good violinist, but Sharon Corr can play circles around her and has the resume' to back it up! The best song on here is "Sweetness," and you lose interest in it after a few plays. She's not a good pop songwriter, and her vocals are no great shakes--very weak. What a shame with her violinist's skills. She ought to stop pretending her voice could ever carry outside of a kitchen pantry and put some clothes back on.
Even the instrumentals on this cd are nothing to brag about. Worst example? "The Promised Land:" Ten minutes too many of what sounds like slow death in the heat. All you can think when you hear this is that you should be crawling on the sand as you murmur, "Water...waa-ter!" You also find yourself thinking, "So this is the soundtrack to Hell!"
This is just awful and boring in my eyes, but maybe it's your cup of tea. Would you like to buy mine?

I have been pumped for this album since I bought her first one titled "Lili" (which is a 5 out of 5 stars must buy). I saw her twice live opening for Jimmy Page and Robert Plant in 1998. She play the song on this album wounded dove and it was a very moving song live. This song was completely redone and sounds much much too much like the rest of the album. On "Lili" there was no 2 songs anything alike and it was a wonderfully different set of music. This album is one long disco/techno dance beat slowed down to a lullaby tempo. Everyone I have ever played her first album for has literally gone out, tracked it down, and purchased it. It really was that good. This album, I believe was obviously strongly influenced by someone producer or the like, has lost the wonderful vibe the first one had. No one, and I mean no one I have played her new album for (all of which own her first and couldn't wait for the second) has even wanted to finish it after about half way. It goes without saying that they haven't gone out and purchased it. I really hope her next album (may there be another after this) is a return to the beautiful music we got one the first and in the live experience. Lili, I still have hope and can't wait for your next album and tour. Your music (pre this release) moves my soul!!!

So here's a violin player posing on the front album cover in a white outfit with a bare midriff, and on the back cover in a red outfit with a bare midriff. It seems she's trying to tell potential listeners, "I may play the violin, but I'm not stuffy--I'm a babe." Like Vanessa Mae. Or Bond.
Well, I like the music Vanessa Mae and Bond produce, so the album cover trick worked--I went for this CD. Unfortunately, Lily Haydn is not of the caliber that the aforementioned artists are, but still, I think she shows promise.
First of all, her style of violin playing differs because it is more of a slow, sweet, warm sound as opposed to the faster style and technical prowess showing-off of Vanessa Mae or Bond, so she's not directly comparable. The album is overall rather slow, the kind of music that would be fitting to play in candlelight. Also, she sings on nearly every track, although you still get to hear plenty of violin playing. She has a lovely singing voice, one similar in timbre to Vanessa Mae but more upfront, with a bit more power and emotion. I think fans of Sarah Brightman would appreciate her voice.
The major drawback of the album is the lyrical content. Here is an album of adult music, accompanied by lyrics so trite you would expect to hear them from a teen star. Most of the vocal tracks suffer from this, but the second and third tracks ("Come Here" and "Anything") are so bad, I nearly didn't continue listening to the rest of the album. However, the worst songs on the album are the first three; things get better after that.
Here are some examples of what I mean by trite lyrical content. From the chorus of "Come Here": "If you ever loved me, if you ever cared, if you think I'm worthy, come here.

I own Haydn's first cd and loved it! Her voice and violin playing are magnificent. This cd was nothing like what I expected, but that turned out to be a great thing. This cd is more mellow than her last album. The music has more of a trance sound to it that blends beautifully with Haydn's voice and violin. Her talent really shines on this album! I loved the new version of "Come Here" (the song originally appeared on the "Anywhere But Here" soundtrack). "Anything" is a wonderful new song that keeps going through my mind. "Wounded Dove" is also a great song that reminds me of her last cd. Overall, I really love the album and my love for Haydn's music has grown. She is a truly talented artist who is under-appreciated in today's mediocre music business.
