Album Review

Orianthi's third studio album, 2013's Heaven in This Hell, finds the virtuoso guitarist and singer moving away from the melodic pop/rock of 2009's Believe and toward a more adult contemporary and modern blues-rock sound. Working with producer and Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart, Orianthi co-wrote all of the songs on Heaven in This Hell. Whereas last time, tracks like, "According to You" and "Bad News" brought to mind a harder rocking take on "Since You've Been Gone"-era Kelly Clarkson, here, cuts like the swampy blues of "Fire" and the Jimi Hendrix-esque "Frozen" play up more of Orianthi's strength as ballsy, guitar slinging rock chick. The closest Heaven in This Hell gets to Believe is on the infectious and anthemic "If U Think U Know Me," which sounds more Melissa Etheridge — a comparison that would most likely appeal to Orianthi, based on the material she's showcasing here. Elsewhere, tracks like the soulful ballad "How Do You Sleep?" and the funky, R&B-inflected slow jam "How Does It Feel?" also showcase Orianthi's growth as a vocalist. This is a more gritty, less pop-oriented album than anything Orianthi has done before, and in that sense, it may appeal to an older, more rock-oriented audience.

The whole album keeps the level, with variety, good sound and, of course, a great guitar performance. Maybe the style is a little teenager for me, but yeah, it’s still a good choice. Recommended.

Deemed "seriously ass-whoopin'" by Carlos Santana, female guitarist Orianthi burst on the scene in 2009 thanks to the killer trifecta of Carrie Underwood, the Grammys, and the King of Pop. Born in Adelaide, Australia, Orianthi Panagaris was only six when she fell in love with the guitar thanks to her dad's record collection. Legendary names like Clapton, Hendrix, and Santana influenced her to take lessons, and she spent five years on the acoustic guitar before switching to the electric at the age...
