There are definitely a number of stand-out tracks on the record, including (in my opinion) "Ocean and a Rock", "I don't know" (the track that seems to have really broken her out), "Keep it all", "Pistachio" and "Lille" (another hit for her). Your favorites might vary from mine, but I bet they'd include some of these same songs.
Should you get this album? If you like "real" music, great lyrics, and exceptional vocals, then yes. If you prefer mainstream pap, then it may not be for you.
What I realized after listening to this CD is why I didn't enjoy it.....Lisa has worked previously partnering on some of Damien Rice CD's & I realized in listening to her own CD that what was missing to me was....heart, angst, expressions of the most intimate of feelings. Perhaps that is Damien's gift but she blended so beautifully with his work that I felt that her representations in his work would carry over into her own.
This CD felt passionless to me; perhaps it will be enjoyed by those that don't connect with passion, intimacy etc., or connect with music that isn't relating a particular story, struggle etc.
I would say it is equivalent to putting background music on when your having company that will neither annoy but not challenge anyone either.
Sorry to have to say it but this CD I would say is one of my biggest CD disappointments for 2009.....even for the last few years. Back to the drawing board maybe; sorry Lisa et all fans but I have to be honest about my critique.
