iTunes Review

On Rise, British soul singer Gabrielle’s personal lyrics are colored by a slight vibrato and a touch of melancholy. Wrapped in orchestral strings, “Tell Me What You Dream” is pushed forward by strummed bass, while “Should I Stay” rides a churchy Rhodes organ melody. Acoustic guitar frames the introspection of “Over You,” in which she laments never getting over an ex-lover. When she celebrates winning a man’s heart over girl-group backing vocals and handclaps on “When a Woman,” it feels like a triumphant and well-deserved release.

Awesome album

I think Gabrielle is one of the best R&B artists that is somewhat unknown in the US. The UK store has all her albums, but only Rise and Find Your Way make it to us. Out of the two, this is my favorite album. I can see the change and progression in the order in which the songs are numbered. 1-First starts with "Sunshine: that's what you are" an awesome song. 2-Then she switches mood in Rise, based on Bob Dylan's "Knocking on Heaven's door." Now it gets into a remorseful and a sad "I know that I'll get over you..." 3-When A Woman is more of a pop song, which I'm not really fond of here, but gets into "when a woman wants her man..." 4-Tell Me What You Dream: 4th favorite song, with orchestral string and a very sheer and foggy feeling to it, which is really cool. 5-5 O'Clock: 2nd favorite song. Love the beat behind it. 6-Should I Stay: reminds me of one of those hospital beeping things as you can here at the end of the preview. I'm not really fond of it. 7-Over You: reasonable song. "Don't know if I'll get over you..." 8-Falling: 3rd favorite song. It's the fastest song on the album, and I think a really good one for listening the car when your happy or when you feel like dancing :) 9-If You Love Me: Nice song. Pretty slow and mellow "If you love me, let me know..." 10-Independence Day: My favorite song. I love the transition that comes in (listen to it at the beginning of the preview) 11-Gonna Get Better: The mood finally brightens. I don't know why it says explicit, because it's not, just look for the lyrics. So that's my review on the whole album. Hope you know what your getting.

Missing the best songs

This is a truly enjoyable cd from start to finish. It's a nice light soul-pop sound, a bit too adult contempo at times, but all in all one of my fave cd's from the early 00s. Gabrielle's voice is amazing. The two best songs are not on here, though....Rise is excellent, and Out of Reach is by far the most commercial, radio-playable song on here. It's so catchy you find yourself singing it long after it's over.

AMAZING! Such a talented singer and song writer.

British house/R&B vocalist Gabrielle began her career singing for free in London West End clubs whilst temping in offices during the day. Her big break came when she recorded a demo, called "Dreams," based around Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car," which subsequently fell into the hands of an A&R man at London's Go! Beat records. The track was re-recorded without the Chapman sample and ended up in the Guinness Book of Hit Singles as the highest U.K. chart entry for a debut female act, topping the charts...
