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?
