Album Review

Katrina Carlson captured pop fans' hearts with her debut album, 2001's Apples for Eve, while her smash sophomore set, 2003's Untucked, helped send a quartet of singles into the U.S. charts. Since then, the singer experimented with an edgier sound, but returned to lusher pastures for her third set, Here and Now. "Break My Fall," however, is a sharp reminder of her journey into tougher lands, on a song underpinned at points by fiery rock guitar that singes classic rock territory. "The Secret" is nowhere near as hard, yet still has a pop/rock edge, but these two song's are the exception to the set's overwhelmingly soft and quiet rule. The album's lovely title track and first single is much more representative, a shimmering number filled with orchestral strings that swell languorously into the crystalline chorus. "Daisy in Chains," in contrast, is dappled with '60s sunshine pop, threatening to break from its shackles, and just about does during the anthemic chorus. In contrast, "No One Is to Blame" is deliberately edged with an '80s pop style, a reminder of its past. A Top Five hit for Howard Jones back in 1986, the British star joins Carlson for a cover that nearly bests the original smash. Its downbeat theme fits beautifully within this set, whose own themes revolve around fragile relationships, searches for love, and the need to hold it tight. For Carlson, love is a balm, and the only cure for her own insecurity. Obviously she's not alone in this attitude, giving her lyrics a universal appeal. The music, comforting and comfortable, soft as a summer breeze, and flecked with lush atmospheres and pop sweetness, provides the perfect foil for Carlson's own sweet tones and heartfelt deliveries. The album may be a tad too laid-back for the pop kids, but more mature fans will adore it.

Customer Reviews


I was watching South of Nowhere and heard a song I really liked, "Feel For Me" by Katrina Carlson and came here to iTunes and bought it! Great song! Great CD! I listened to the rest of the songs and decided to buy the rest of the CD in it's entiriety! "No On Is To Blames is awesome, "Here and Now" is sooooooo beautiful, "Be the One" rocks and "Daisy In Chains" is brilliant writing and an amazing groove! Over all I'd have to say this is my new favorite CD! THANKS SOUTH OF NOWHERE!

Great sounds, catchy beats... awesome album!

I purchased Katrina's album after hearing one of her singles, and it's absolutely fantastic - she has a very smooth, melodic voice, while all of her songs are belt-worthy while driving down the freeway with the music up and windows down. ;) I would highly recommend this album!

Katrina Carlson is Here To Stay!!

I first discovered Katrina when her cover of the Cars' "Drive" came out a few years back. The first time that I heard the song I fell in love with her gorgeous voice!! I then went on to discover her "Untucked" disc and found it to be full of sparkling pop songs and gentle ballads. After a long wait, I finally have something new from Katrina!! I heard her cover of the Howard Jones song on the radio last week and got very excited about the new disc. I've listened to it twice already and I love it!! My favorites so far are "Be The One," "Here and Now" and "First To Say Goodbye" - which is a heartbreaking ballad that I could totally see on the soundtrack to a film. Of course Katrina's version of "No One Is To Blame" is wonderful - and to have Howard sing on it with her is a special bonus!! If you love great pop songs and strong vocals - get this disc. You won't be disappointed!!
