Review

At IsraBox as well as the Lisa Lim web site they mentioned this album as a "Joe Bonamassa meets Sheryl Crow", and it's quite true. But "Broken promise blues", "Perfect fit" and the opener "Superstitious mind" sounds even more like LENNY KRAVITZ with its funky rock guitar. And Lisa has got a great voice, lifting the song up just the way Kravitz does. Also, a number of songs are way too much hard rocking to even come near to a comparison to Sheryl Crow. The variation on this album is truly wide, though. "I got you" for example, is really soft, almost slightly 60's pop spiced and with some soul elements. "Let go" would have fit on any RUNAWAYS album. And "Letter" can be described as a mid-tempo BOB DYLAN tune (well, at least the verse), with harmonica and all. The final song "Manic energy" even takes us in the JIMI HENDRIX direction, except for the occasional semi-rap vocals that I could do without.


All in all, this is a high class recording. Good players and a crunchy and melodic production by Thomas Johansen.
