haunting and beautiful,
This review is from: Land And Sea (Audio CD)I never heard fo Sarah Slean until I read an article about her latest album and decided to check it out. Boy was I impressed! I don't know anything about her other than she is canadian, she sings, and she plays the piano. Her voice is what really makes her stand out. It is truly incredible. She must have had at least 10 years of singing lessons. She can also write some great lyrics. Land and Sea is 2 cds. The first one LAND, has 9 songs. Mostly lighthearted and most of them very catchy. Set it free and everybody's on tv are great tracks. Amen is a beautiful song. The last song, society's song is probably the catchiest of the bunch.
The second cd SEA, also has 9 songs, this time backed by a full orchestra. SEA drops the pop cathyness and goes for more serious music. the 2 best tracks are cosmic ballet and napolean. although is remains good throughout. Again what stands out is her incredible voice.
After being blown away by her album I am going to check out some of her previous works.
