Karise is a powerhouse of a singer who has such an amazing voice, which from this album you can see why she actually won the show. What a voice! She is the Janis Joplin of our times.
The starts with her first song (which was from her audition it's called 'It's a Man's World', man what a song, it is an absolute killer and her delivery is second to none, it's like she is channeling the late great James Brown, killer vocals, killer sound nothing more to say. Her next song is 'Back to Black' an Amy Winehouse song and I think she actually does a better job!
We then move onto 'Nothing's Real But Love' and what an awesome song, she does it so much justice, her voice it sounds so emotional and you can actually feel all the power and emotion that the lyrics have, which is a credit to Karise Eden's abilities to move you. The next song is Landslide (from one of my favourite bands of all time Fleetwood Mac, now I am a harsh critic when it comes to Fleetwood Mac, but she just steps up and knocks out of the park.
we then move onto 'Hallelujah' and what a song, her acoustic guitar, that voice, those lyrics a perfect example of why she won. The next song 'If I was your girl' is a Karise Eden original and man what a talent she has, it was written about her mother, it is a great song, it just a taste of what she can do for sure. The next songs are 'Stay With Me Baby' and " You Won't let Me'. Both songs are sheer vocal perfection, soulful, powerful and so emotional what a VOICE!
The next songs, 'Hound Dog' and 'Dock of The Bay' only serve to highlight, this woman's amazing talent, the way she jams with the band in Hound Dog is amazing. We then move onto 'I'd Rather Go Blind' shows just how impressive her vocals are. The last song is a Janis Joplin track called 'Move Over' and well, she is the new Janis Joplin, what more can I say.
This is a great debut album from an incredible singer whose vocal abilities are off the planet.I highly recommend this album and you should go out and buy it asap. I am giving it four and a half shots of whiskey out of five. I can't wait for her new album, please karise, release it NOW!
Till next week
Peace out my bitches!
