4 Charming, folksy house musicTruecolours | 21/06/2009 | See all Truecolours's reviews (45)Top 100 Music Reviewer A relaxing, chilled-out collection of songs from the California-based Samantha James (who co-wrote the album). It can be listened to all the way through, as the sequence of tracks feels exactly right - all sitting within a dreamy house music template but exploring different moods and beats (including influences from Brazil). 'Rise' is the most immediately catchy and has uplifting lyrics that draw you into the album. When things slow down a little ('Enchanted Life', 'Come Through', 'Right Now') the warmth of Samantha's voice stands out. The lyrics can seem a little hippy-ish in places but it makes a stark change to the usual focus on romance. Standout track is 'Send It Out To The Universe', which has a lovely uplifting message - it feels a little like a platitude ("what will be will be...") but it is nonetheless good to hear. If you want to enjoy positive lyrics and positive vibes, this album is the perfect place to start.
