Recensioni di "Mesmerized"

1998. Esce "Mesmerized". Ecco cosa ne pensano gli adetti ai lavori.

«She has the voice and integrity to play with both Kate Bush and Tori Amos, but then the production also ought to be more variated and the arrangement more daring.» (Anders Grønneberg for Dagbladet, October 3rd 1998)

«This time around it feels as though the distinctiveness is absent, and the songs don’t feel as characteristic. Could it be that the straight — less distinctive — pop demand better melodies in order to be noticed? At least «Mesmerized» isn’t as enchanting as Kari’s previous albums. Not encanting enough.» (Kjell Henning Thon for Aftenposten, October 5th 1998)

«I’ve had this album for 3 weeks or so now, and hardly a day has gone by without me playing it at least once, so I think I’ve got a fairly solid opinion of it. For those who don’t know who Kari is, she used to be the singer for the Norwegian band The 3rd And The Mortal, where she impressed me with her crystal-clear vocals. To the album: Mesmerized consists of 11 tracks which showcase Kari’s wonderful voice - all other instruments are reduced to backing roles, so don’t expect any fancy guitar work here because it would be completely out of place. Do you believe in angels? Ever wondered what they sound like? Listen to Kari on this album and you will know. All of the songs are quite short, but each is perfect and complete in itself. Nothing heavy, no dark influences, very light and very cheerful. Try and imagine Loreena McKennitt without all the instruments. It’s impossible to be down when this album is playing. The only track that bears any resemblance to Kari’s old stuff is «Cinderella», otherwise a lot of the songs would make great radio material. Forget the whiney little bitches like Tory Anus and Alanis Morrisette and songs about pre-menstrual tension and eating disorders. Do your ears and mood a favour - buy this album and discover what a good female singer/songwriter can really do.»
