Album Review

Abra Moore opens On the Way with the pop-flavored "Into the Sunset," a warm song filled with lovely hooks. Moore's girlish vocal sketches the fate of a contemporary Icarus, a beautiful innocent who tries to touch the sky, but "it carried him away." The lyric has a nice abstract quality, spun from metaphor, while the melody and easy-flowing pop/rock arrangement lift Moore's words upward. The song's only weakness, and it's a weakness that is repeated throughout On the Way, is that Moore allows "Into the Sunset" to unfurl for four and a half minutes. Toward the end, the overall structure of the song has begun to dissipate and drift, as though no one knew when to end it. This becomes even more of a problem on ballad-paced songs like the title cut and "Sorry." On "Sorry," the trumpet adds a nice touch to the pop arrangement, and Moore's vocal falls into a relaxed, loose groove. But the song circles for over five minutes, and follows the equally sluggish "On the Way." There is great deal to like about On the Way. The mix of keyboards, pianos, guitars, and percussion fittingly underline Moore's confectionary vocal style, injecting the material with an easygoing pop feel. But On the Way never quite recaptures the magic of its opening moments, leaving the listener enchanted but wanting more. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., Rovi

Customer Reviews

Back to her roots

I usually don't write reviews, but I have to say that this album is stunning. I was able to see her perform these songs live a couple of weeks ago and I was mesmerized. Incredible artist with great music. "After All These Years" and "Sugarite" are highlights!! I am so glad Abra made another album. BUY!!! It's worth it!

Beautiful Music from a Beautiful Person

Abra Moore's voice is sweet and the music is ethereal. "On The Way" is full of lush landscapes that, combined with her lyrics, have a crazy way of inspiring. The album is packed with songs that you'd want to hear in your favorite movie or TV show. That makes sense since her music has been all over soundtracks, movie scores and TV shows for the past decade. Highly recommended for fans of today's best female songwriters.

Innovative, emotionally-riveting songwriting

I love how her voice is naive and sweet and womanly and girly and lustrously sexy all at the same time. I love how even her gentlest songs have lyrics that come from a place of strength. "Sorry" is the sweetest most wholesome song you will ever hear that apologizes for standing up a lover. But never mind the lyrics. This album is all about innovative, emotionally-riveting songwriting, and a versatile, jazz-worthy voice. "Sugarite" and "No Turning Back" are my personal picks for top two, but every song on this album has the potential to become a new fav.
