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.

This gem is brilliant stuff

I actually had the fortunate experience to get to know of Sarah´s music through one of her old school mates who told me to get hold of her record about a year back.

I am currently in Europe, and one cold winter morning, she was on air, on the local radio, people just looked at me while I sang away... reckon they thought I was nuts... but if you havent bought her music yet, get hold of it, I am sure she will be an artist to look out for, same brilliant voice as of Missy Higgins... :)

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,...
