• All You Do Is Take...

    Right Here

    I’ve had something
    I’ve had nothing
    You have everything
    You sit there mumbling

    Come back to reality
    Wake up from your lucid dream
    It’s a crime and such a waste
    All you do is take

    I am right here
    But you don’t see me
    You’re blinded by doubt
    And selfish greed

    After listening to Natalie Walker's singles over the last couple of months (No One Else and Quicksand), I've been anxiously awaiting the release of Urban Angel, which came out this past Tuesday. After giving myself a few days to digest it, I thought I'd offer my thoughts on it.

    What I expected from her was a phenomenal album. I expected every track to be as good or better than her singles. I expected to be completely blown away for every second of the album. I expected one of the best albums I'd ever heard.

    It didn't happen.

    What did happen, though, was a very good album. For a solo debut, she did a great job. There's not a song on there that I don't like, and there's several that I already love. Waking Dream is an absolute gem - I'm very much digging that song!! Her cover of The Counting Crows' Colorblind is spectacular; I'd go so far as to say it gives the original a run for its money as to which is better. Right Here is such a beautiful song. Very simple, just piano and vocals, but very moving.
