Album Review

Put together Sarah McLachlan and Norah Jones and strip them of such deliciously straightforward lyrics as McLachlan's "Your love is better than ice cream," and what you get is bound to resemble Sarah Blasko on The Overture & the Underscore: an entrancing artist who sings exceptionally well but is bent on making you guess what brews within her heart rather than pouring it out to you. "Disconnected things, you exist within a kind of truth/And the consequence is a consummated trial of fire," she sings on "Always Worth It," a smart, moody slice of pure pop that's typical of the 11 songs gathered on this debut. Where most pop grabs hold instantaneously, though, Blasko's brand, punctuated by gentle synth, guitar, and piano melodies, takes its time sinking in. The result is a disc more like barrel-aged wine than fast-melting ice cream. But that's not to say some of the lyrics, like "Between love we make divide/Confusion translates what you can't explain," from "True Intentions," won't give you brain freeze.

Customer Reviews

Stunning

Sarah is not, I repeat not, a Missy Higgins copy. She's much better than Missy could hope to be. This album is full of brilliant lyrics and beautiful ambient tunes. Perfect Now is probably the highlight as with Sweetest November. Her live show at the BDO 2006 was fantastic, and cements her as not simply a rising star but a star.

Loved it

I loved every track on this album. There are (in my opinion) parallels between Overture and Underscore and Sound Of White. If you like Sound Of White (Missy Higgins) do yourself a favour and listen to Overture and Underscore - I bet you'll become a Sarah Blasko fan like I did.

Brilliant Album

Can't wait for the second. i love her just a bit more than clare bowditch

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Australian songwriter Sarah Blasko arrived in the U.S. in 2005 with a pedigree that couldn't be ignored: trailing a list of ARIA Award nominations in the categories of Best Album, Best Female Artist, Best Breakthrough Artist, and Best Pop Release, she also distinguished herself -- and perked up the ears of rock skeptics -- by being tagged somewhere along her cross-continental journey with the moniker "Girliohead." The comparisons were not unfounded. Like Radiohead and the countless lovelorn, world-weary,...
