about 1993, Don Henley stated that his young (and then unknown)
backup singer was one of the best female voices in the music
industry. That backup singer was Sheryl Crow. Henley could easily
make the same statement about Marino in 2006, if she was singing
with him. She is in the fist full of top-echelon female voices, in
the same company as Sarah McLaughlin, Sheryl Crow, Aimee Mann, and
the like; the only difference being noone knows who she is yet.
melodic, and powerful voice rings true on this album, as do her
compositions. It's all new material, and it's all very good. Conversation is one of the best new songs I heard in
2005 -- or 2006; an
acoustic ballad. For One Moment and Ghost of You have a distinct U2 feel -- imagine U2 with a female vocal. Other favorites
are Solitaire, Subway, Goodbye My Love (can be heard on her myspace
page), and It's Great.
One Moment good song. Love the U2-esque feel to it.
Turn it Around
Marino shows off the power of her voice on an upbeat song.
Goodbye My Love
This should be a single.
Someone I know described Marino's voice as mellifluous. Her voice sounds
mellifluous on this song.
One of the best songs on the album. Should be a single. Good
lyrics, good tune, and Marino's voice all come to the fore. From the intro of an old phonograph
switching on and Marino's voice coming through tin-ny 1930's speakers, followed
by full-volume sound, and working up to the crescendo of her belting out 'Time'. Add this to
the handful of great songs that feature the word 'Time' in them (see Time Has Come
Today by the
Chambers Brothers and Time by Pink Floyd).
Great Another great song -- songs 3-5 are a sweet spot
of the album. Her voice sounds great on a great, great song. It's just
great. It's great, it's great, it's great, it's great..
Mom and Dad good song.
My daughter loves this song. I'm thinking maybe she identifies with
it. She's 11 years old. She keeps pushing to go to the corner store with
her friends, unchaperoned.
Only pretty good song.
of You Title track. More U2-esque feel. Good song; a tad too polished
for my taste.
(Song #8 is listed as Subway on the liner notes on the website.)
Another one of my favorite songs on the album. I love
when someone writes about the subway. She's a New York girl for
Your Eyes Another good song. Nice imagery. Hey, is
the Paul Bryan playing Chamberlain the very same
Paul Bryan that is Aimee
Manns bass player/rhythm guitarist/backup vocal?
WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SONG. Love the accordion on this song and the
acoustic guitar work. One of my favorite new songs of 2005. Or 2006.
a terrific album; beautiful -- spectacular really -- voice; really nice compositions. You can listen over
and over again (and I have!). The
cream of the album are songs 3 through 5 (Goodbye My Love, Solitaire,
It's Great) and 9 through 11 (Subway, Open Your Eyes, and
