Album Review

Eva Avila's first release following her effortless claiming of Canadian Idol's title in 2006 didn't quite match the talent of the Quebec beauty seen on the show. Avila, whose sensual voice glimmered and soared in a mixed bag of artist samplings not limited to the Rolling Stones and Alicia Keys, fell short in terms of releasing a first album that reflected the multi-dimensional talent heard and adored by her fans. Avila's first album was stuffed with hardly satisfying midtempo numbers and ballads which filled the listener up with pure fluff and no substance; ultimately, Avila had tunes that came nowhere close to allowing her voice to be a vehicle for international success. This time around, though, that problem seems to have been tackled and fixed by the album's lead single and title track. "Give Me the Music," the first sampling of the sophomore release by Avila, is impressively infectious, sexy, and sensual, and most importantly, promising. "Give Me the Music" is the first real example of how exciting Avila is as a pop revelation; her beyond impressive vocal capacity is glorified on this bouncing beat, not hindered like many of her contemporaries. However, in terms of success, Avila's management team has not put all their eggs in one basket; using the title track of the album as a promising first single, but providing support on it. The rest of the album is plentiful in terms of solid adult contemporary pop; stuff that is much more impressive than material covered on her first release, Somewhere Else. Yet aside from "You Don't Say No," most of the slower jams blend. There are a couple of notable exceptions that may function as a possible second single in terms of quality and vibe: the album's opener "No Smoke" is quite fiery and could blaze up quite a few listeners with its sultry sound, and the fresh, dramatic "Like a Bullet" stands out as a truly spunky vocal display; yet a huge chunk of the album doesn't match the promise of its first single. Had "My Neighborhood" been more than just a demo track, it may also have had commercial success. However, Avila's management seems stuck on giving her music that doesn't let her shine on all accounts. A large part of the second album is middling filler that Avila simply doesn't deserve. There is certainly more artistic merit on this release, with Avila's "Damned" providing angry sounds that seem to complement her voice quite well. Give Me the Music is hardly a bad album, and Avila sounds nearly as wonderfully delicious as she did when her fan base first grew to love her on Canadian Idol. When the tunes are good, the potential is magnified and glorified, the musical support, however, is just not always there. This album is one large step towards putting Avila on the pop map where she rightfully belongs.

GREAT JOB EVA!!!!!! This is the best song she has "eva" written!!! Love it!!!


Tout simplement malade. Fabulous!!! Moins jeune que le premier et vraiment plus épuré. À l'image de ce qu'elle a fait durant la compétition. Une artiste en évolution qui a beaucoup de potentiel...Encore.

Good.. but could have been better (3.5 stars)

Eva is a great singer and has a lot of talent, but some of these songs really arent asamazing as they could have been. Some are definitely worth listening to but others just dont seem to have the wow factor. Give me the music is a great track. Its catchy too. All in all I am a little dissapointed but its still a pretty ok album.
