Album Review

In the late '90s, there was a revival of interest in the ukulele both in Hawaii and on the mainland. Mainlanders tended to be arty types with a desire to reinvent a notoriously unhip instrument for their own nefarious purposes. Victoria Vox is one of these hipsters, a Berklee graduate and Baltimore resident who has taken the uke back to its Jazz Age roots with a collection of self-penned tunes full of sprightly melodies and arch lyrics. Melodica, another odd instrument more common to dub reggae, adds a playful touch to "Peeping Tomette," a lighthearted song about a female voyeur that has a light swinging feel. "What's Wrong?!" is a '20s-style pop tune with an upbeat lyric, buoyant uke, and one of Vox's most spunky vocals. "Tucson" is a song of unrequited passion with a reggae-funk backbeat and a sweet vocal that shows off Vox's pure, aching alto to good advantage. "The Bird Song" is another reggae-driven tune, delivered by a simple strummed ukulele with dramatic percussion accents by Mike Tarantino and a charming faux trumpet solo by Vox. Vox also strums her acoustic guitar on several tracks: "Five, Four..." is a clever, gently humorous ode to lost love and implicit self release; "Alone" is a subtly powerful country-flavored ballad that deals with heartache and loneliness; and "Damn Venus" is a dark ode to the illicitly exciting lure of infidelity. All the tunes are marked by a lyrical intelligence and melodic flair that make Vox a talent to watch. ~ j. poet, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Each release better than the last

Hopefully, this is the career changing release for the joyful and exuberant VIctoria Vox. The songwriting is original, crisp, and loaded with clever lyrics and themes. Her voice is exceptional and her upbeat spirit is contagious. As great as this album is, you must see her live to get the complete picture for what a wonderful picture it is.

High Recommendations

This is Victoria’s best album. Don't get me wrong Her earlier works are exceptional, but this album reveals this lady’s talent as a singer, songwriter, and musician. It is a real pleasure to listen too. Just listen to my favorites Tucson, Damn Venus, and C’est Noye, and you will be back for the rest of the album (oooohhh and peeping tomette too).

Love It!!!!
