What I'm listening to...

2003-05-26 , ,

Devil Doll- Queen of Pain. I was browsing CDBaby’s music and looked at what was selling that day. I listened to the clips and bought the album. It’s good- a punk, ska, swing, torch song admixture- but there is just so far an album can go with a single theme. Eighteen songs of heartache and rejection gets tired after a few listens no matter how much fun the musicians seem to be having with tweaking the genres. You get your money’s worth, though. So many CDs have ten songs of which eight aren’t worth hearing the first time but here you have about an hour and a quarter of music and five or six that are worth plucking out for repeat playlisting. The singer has a great voice, edgy and soulful, and the band is tight. I hope the next album branches out.
