Heartfelt, personal, and representative of a wonderful singer/songwriter from the UK. Love it!
This album is beautifully enigmatic, evident from the track of the same name,
"I'd Like to Remain a Mystery", in which The Glass Child (Charlotte Eriksson) paints herself as a mythical figure who leaves her existence up to artistic interpretation.
Charlotte's voice, if I had to describe it to those not familiar with her, sounds like a perfect mix of Evanescence frontwoman Amy Lee, and Avril Lavigne, (on
the albums' 8th track, "Letdown", in particular).
"Oceans", is a song that both, breaks and mends, the heart, but that could be said for the entire album, in my opinion, though this song really speaks to me.
Eriksson's ability to captivate listeners with poetic tales, really shines in "Creepy Little Story". If Shirley Temple was a punk rocker: that's the best I can describe this tune!
The final track, "Tell the World", summerizes, if possible, the artists' struggles and her triumphant victory over doubters, as she sings proudly:
"Tell the world I’m still alive.
I found a way, yeah, I survived.
Tell the world I’m not afraid,
for I’ve seen yesterday, and I survived."
