Album Review

"I ain't got no sob story to write," Kate Voegele admits during A Fine Mess, a seasoned album that owes much of its success to One Tree Hill. After joining the show's cast in 2008, Voegele tackled the recurring role of Mia Catalano — essentially a televised, aliased version of herself — and used the opportunity to promote her own songs, many of which were woven into the episodes' plotlines. It was an invaluable introduction to an established TV audience, one whose affinity for photogenic actors and heartbroken drama neatly dovetailed with Voegele's music. Sales of her album appropriately spiked, and Voegele returned to the drawing board soon after, looking to strike while the iron was hot. Released in May 2009, A Fine Mess proves to be a fairly veteran production, performed with radio-minded gusto by the songwriter herself and, once again, promoted by a semi-biographical storyline on One Tree Hill. Voegele doesn't stretch her boundaries on these nine songs — despite posing with an acoustic guitar in the album's liner notes, she only strums it during "Manhattan from the Sky" — but she does write the material herself, helming the bulk of the tracks on her own and partnering with outsiders on two numbers. Despite those two collaborations, Voegele's own songs are the strongest ones here, particularly the alternative rocker "99 Times" and the breezy, Nashville-influenced "Talkin' Smooth." Her voice is similarly competent, perhaps a bit commonplace in its soulful inflections but agreeable nonetheless, and producer Mike Elizondo highlights the melodies with tight, tasteful arrangements. The only hang-up, then, is the fact that A Fine Mess isn't messy at all; rather, it wields the same combination of saucy strut and well-scrubbed pop/rock that we've heard on previous albums by Michelle Branch, Vanessa Carlton, and the like. That's good company for most aspiring songwriters, of course, but Voegele may need another few albums to distinguish herself from her predecessors. [A deluxed edition with five extra tracks added was also released.]

Customer Reviews

Kate has the greatest voice...

Just wanted to express that Kate's music is exceptionally great, all of her songs, not just this album, but this album is awaesome on its own, my favorite Single off it is Angel, such a great song, Manhattan From The Sky is also pretty great!

Wow!

I expected alot from her second album and she definitely delivered! I've had these songs stuck in my head since I bought the album and they're amazing! My favourites are Who You Are Without Me, Say Anything, and Forever and Almost Always, along with the 5 singles from One Tree Hill of course.

the Good, the Bad, and the Catchy!!

I really like Kate's songs, they offer a lot of variety and she has a nice voice that you dont get sick of hearing quickly like some others. In my opinion she could work on pronouncing her words and more variety in her lyrics, but thats about it. Dont just read what others have to say, go and listen to it your self.
