Delta Goodrem - Innocent Eyes
The album kicks off with the song 'Born To Try' it is a great song with really uplifting lyrics and Delta's voice shines it also has a really catchy hook that will get stuck in your head big time. The next song is 'Innocent Eyes' this is another ballad with some great piano from Ms Delta this song is autobiographical which makes it more heart-warming. I do love when singer/songwriters write about themselves and their lives because it gives the song heart and soul which is the best way to describe this song.
Next is the killer track 'Not Me, Not I' this track starts off with a beautiful piano and
her amazing vocals and she powers through the song until it reaches a massive crescendo and her voice is the star of this track and what a voice it is. The next track is 'Throw It Away' this track is just Delta's amazing voice and an acoustic guitar cool song a little bit more pop - driven than the previous tracks. We then move onto 'Lost Without You' this song is so cool, a real darker and edgier side of Delta that is so cool, (everyone should embrace the dark side) the vocals are amazing and seem to soar on this song. The lyrics are so heartfelt and she conveys the pain with an emotional edge to her voice that makes this song a ripper.
The next track is 'Predictable' another edgy song with a more rock sound, it is an awesome ballad with cool guitar and piano and her amazing voice.The next track
'Butterfly' is another awesome ballad, something that suits her voice so well, it soars on this track and the choir bit at the end is unreal. 'In My Own Time' is another hauntingly beautiful ballad that showcase Delta's incredible voice.
'My Big Mistake' has a great piano intro and great vocals but it isn't really and stand out, it does have a pop kind of vibe, it's Ok not my favourite though. 'This Is Not Me' follows on from the last song again it has great piano and her voice is unreal but it's seems rather boring, don't get me wrong it's a good song but I think when you compare it to other tracks on the album, it comes up short. 'Running Away' brings us back to what we expect, a power-house of a song, upbeat - up tempo, awesome guitar and great vocals with an edge a great song.
'A Year Ago Today' is a lament for a friend who died, a great and powerful song, sad but oh so beautiful her vocals invoke so much emotion that it moves you to tears like only great singers can (no I didn't cry, this little monkey is one tough nut!). The next song 'Longer' has a more pop feel and it's Ok but seems a little heard it all before. the last song on the album is 'Will You Fall For Me' is a stunning song about love and with just her and piano it seems so heartfelt and beautiful and a great end to a stunning debut album, all up I give this 5 shots of whiskey out of 5, This album is a must have for your collection. It's rare to get such an accomplished artist who sings and writes and lets the music talk not her image.
Till next week
Peace out my bitches!
