Where the Rain Falls
Review by Gary Hill
This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2018 Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.
|Track by Track Review|
Intricate guitar serves as the backdrop for this balladic number. The vocals are evocative and quite pretty. After the first verse the cut shifts to a movement that has some definite jazz-like qualities to it. It turns more toward a pop rock sound from there as it works onward. After the minute and a half mark it gets even more “oomph” added to the arrangement.
|Show Me Love
This comes in quite jazzy and reminds me of Sade quite a bit. Penton’s violin adds some intriguing textures to this piece. The vocals have a bit of a soulful vibe, but the music is packed full of magical musical elements.
|Where the Rain Falls
There is a bit of a down-home, country music element on display here. The cut isn’t far removed from the previous two overall, though. There is some cool violin work in the instrumental segment later in the track. That movement has some definite fusion built into it. The whole cut gets some of that in the mix as it continues to evolve from there and works back to the vocal section.
Piano and vocals make up the concept on this balladic piece. That format really allows Penton’s beautiful voice to really shine. She is a wizard in terms of her singing skills. If you want proof of that, look no further than this track. It’s an exceptional performance.
|First and Last Time
Acoustic guitar and voice starts this. The cut works outward from there after a time, getting reinforced as it continues. Overall this song probably fits under the folk ballad title.
We’re back into jazzier territory here. There is a lot more energy to this number, and it has a cool groove.
