Emeli Sande – Our Version Of Events Album Review
June 18th, 2012
The first song that Emeli Sande released was Heaven, which to me is one of the most special songs, as it was my amazing and talented friend Faye De Lanty that told me to listen to it. After driving around Spain with Faye in 2011, she knew exactly what my taste in music was. She observed well.
Since Heaven, Emeli released her super dynamic album called Our Version Of Events. And what a treat it is.
To me, every song on this album is incredibly celebratory. Each of these songs is an event, celebrating something either positive or negative – or however you interpret the words.
There are many artists that will release an album with one or two stand out tracks which are powerful – but Emeli has cleverly managed to make each one of her tracks a personal, sincere and memorable one.
Starting off is Heaven, a heavenly start to a heavenly journey. It’s true pop, produced perfectly for radio and the ears of anyone who loves music. Catchy lines with a sense of heart and soul make this the stand out track on the album. It’s also the track which I have on my fitness playlist.
My Kind Of Love, a song that is spookily deep, with the most exquisite vocals that penetrate your brain so delicately. This song is absolutely stunning and her latest release.
Mountains is the fourth track on the album, but again puts you in a reflective trance, words perfectly chosen to spark and engage your mind – for me it was a smile, then a tear. I’m in love with this track, along with Heaven, I can hear it over and over again. It’s something you’d expect from Des’ree on the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack.
The thing I love about Emeli Sande is her versatility. She can speak, sing, hit high notes, low notes, she can make anything that comes out of her mouth sounds angelic.
For instance, Next To Me is a fun and perfect pop. It is almost an Adele sounding track, but layered quite differently. Plenty of big band participation, finger clicking and foot tapping stuff here.
To finish off the precious production is Read All About It (Part III), which is really a WOW track. “I wanna sing, I wanna shout, I wanna scream till the words dry out…” is the first line of the chorus, which is one memorable chorus. You will be singing it in your head, long after you’ve finished this album. This song is the perfect ending from the perfect start.
Emeli is a classy, pure and intricate artist, she presents herself immaculately, with an edgy style. She really is a forceful artist with magnetic melodies.
I look forward to many more albums by this gorgeous woman.
I dedicate this post to my super-friend, Faye De Lanty. Love you xox
