  Brilliantly Crafted Album! Every Tracks A Gem!

| | See all ShoppaHollick's reviews (12)

Love this record so much its literally one of my favourite records I've ever bought! I bought it literally a few months after release but have been listening to it on and off ever since! I love smoke and mirrors and play on best but truly do love every single song! If you like like Amy, Duffy or Adele you stand a good chance of liking Paloma!

  Fantastic, one of my favourite albums

Brilliant album, can't recommend it enough especially at this price. Broken doll, upside down and smoke and mirrors are my favourites.

Wasn't sure what to make of Paloma for a while,quite liked some of the songs but wasn't convinvced enough to buy the album. Then after the radio played the songs countless times i found myself not getting bored,but really starting to get into her songs. She really is something quite special,as this album shows. Every song is a top song,and the songs i wasn't sure of for several months i now really like. Lovely singing,songs that are quite odd in some ways but also fascinating,and though short,this is a short album i am glad i took a chance on. As soon as i looked past the odd clothes she loves to wear and started to really listen to the songs,i found myself realizing i was wrong to think she was an over the top attention seeker with some okay songs. Every song is sung with passion and conviction and though some are more memorable than others,the lesser songs are still very impressive. so in my opinion,this cd is a very honest truth,it's also something beautiful.

  The Truth Is - It's Something Beautiful!

Utterly brilliant album. Her voice is 'Something Beautiful'. Couldn't agree more with the other reviews - especially the comments about no filler tracks. This is one of the few CD's I've lsitened to whereby you don't feel the need to skip to the next track. All the tracks are either upbeat / quirky, not to mention sung beautifuly throughout. I think her voice is partriculary incredible in the title track. In short, a MUST HAVE for your cd collection.

  More of the same please... Awesome!

I heard a couple of Palomas tracks on the radio and really liked them, then the thing that made me go and buy the album was hearing her being interviewed on the radio, which made me fall in love instantly (shes adorable) which all her true fans will know what i mean.

So I got the album and was completely blown away at how good it is, as someone mentioned there is not a filler track on the album and that is so true, the production is truly awesome and needs to be mentioned and nothing like anything around at the moment with a few exceptions.

I listen to this album pretty much every day at work and just don't get bored of it. If there is one track that really stands out it has to be 'My Legs Are Weak' but this is probably for personal reasons due to the lyrics, but there isn't a weak track on the album.

All i hope is that with her next album she doesn't get sucked into doing the usual of duetting with a slimey rap 'artist' and putting her voice through a vocoder to make her sound like a robot, just to appeal to what seems to be the mass market of brain dead idiots.

On her next album i would just like more of the same with the same producer cause it it a perfect combination for me, its a shame that its unlikely and we will get lyrics like ' Yo Yo Yo - Uh Uh Uh - im gonna take u lo, then im gonna take u hi and reach 4 tha sky etc' - ( ps, all my amazing lyrics are copyrighted) :P lol

I bought this for my wife, she said she would like it. I didn't expect to. I DID; VERY MUCH! SO WILL YOU! BUY IT!

Not a single bad track on it, I only wish there were more. If this is where she (Paloma) is starting from I cannot fathom what may follow. When is the next album due? I'm in the queue already.

There are not many albums that every track is as delightfull as the last ,but THIS IS ONE-probably the best debut by a lady in years and Paloma has set herself the highest of standards---I cant wait to see what she comes up with next---Happy New Year.--
