Girl fronted modern rock with radio oriented songs is what this young talented Swedish singer Ana delivers on her debut album "The Way I am",she walks down the same neighbourhood as Anouk like a rockier version of The Bangles. I reviewed her 2nd single "Life" not so long ago and I had some expectations that this album wouldn?t be too light and hit oriented but I?m afraid it is. "L.A" could?ve been a tune with Susanna Hoffs and the Natalie Imbruglia sounding "Now it?s gone" is ofcourse beautiful but oh so ordinary,the track "Cuz I Can" rocks a bit more the Anouk way and the first single "The Way I Am" is a cool soft modern rocker in the same vein as Nine Days and Splender. Ana sings really good and has the looks to make it in the big world but a rougher production wouldn?t hurt,more guitars more guitars. The youth will love this,radio will play it and Ana will sell enough copies to make a 2nd album I?m sure....but for now the music is just too shallow.
