Innovate.. don't imitate!
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 28/06/2007 15:40:32
Guys, guys, guys!! Full marks for bravery and I'm sure you had fun making it, but seriously... this is a hobby cd and should not be available for people to buy!!!
Not wanting to come out all 'Simon Cowell' but really... if you are going to take on someone like Annie, then don't simply analyse each song bit by bit and then try and recreate it exactly.... using cheaper production, crap instruments and a singer that would sound better in a Bonnie Tyler tribute band!! You can't do it!! You will lose!! Little Bird was a musical car crash waiting to happen!! 'Why' loses all its emotion and the only chills I got in my heart listening to 'Love Song For A Vampire' were the ones of sheer shock that someone could cock it up so badly!!
Break the mould!, be creative!, mix things up a bit! and it will be a much more interesting listen and I'm sure a much better tribute!! Change the tempo, give the songs your own personal touch... I would love to hear a piano version of 'vampire', 'little bird' sung as a ballad or maybe even rocking 'why' up a bit!
Annie fans... in the unlikely event that you need reassurance as to her originality, talent and uniqueness... then by all means give this a listen!! Other people.... if you like the songs then spend a few extra quid buying a couple of the most well crafted, mature and thoughful cd's you can have in your collection - Diva and Bare. And pick yourself up a copy of Eurythmics Greatest Hits while you're there!!
