Cd Review: Katharine Mcphee - Unbroken
This is an incredible sophomore effort from Katharine and the song selection here, and the maturity of the lyrics - is a big leap forward from her first CD. It is a must have for any fan of soft rock and adult contemporary music like Sara Bareilles and Vanessa Carlton.
This album is excellent. Katharine is finally headed in the right direction in finding her niche as an artist. Each song on the record suites Kat's voice perfectly and she brings them to life with her emotional presentation of the lyrics.
This album is a perfect sound for Katharine and it suits her voice perfectly. It also shows how much of a talented songwriter she is, as she co-wrote 6 of the 12 original tracks. What makes this album so great is its maturity. The lyrics are mature, beautiful, inspiring and catchy (a major step up from her first CD); and the production is superb; nothing is overdone!
9 out of 10 stars
