Non-Prog CD Reviews

Anne Simone

Bittersweet

Review by Gary Hill

The vocals are what really sell this EP. The truth is, though, the music is intriguing, too. At times this is very electronic. At times it is more organic. It ranges from more dance styled music to the more rocking end of the spectrum. Either way, it’s good stuff.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2015  Volume 1 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Digitize Me

Suitably electronic in terms of music, this is basically a modern, computer age love song. It’s bouncy and fun.

Gone So Long

As good as the opener was, this is even better. It’s packed with emotion. It is still electronic in tone, but almost more symphonic. If I had to guess, I’d say that the song is about someone helping another person beat addiction.

Let the Heart
There is a bit more of a rocking groove to this cut. The overall concept isn’t altered all that much, though. This tune really works well, though.
Bittersweet
More piano based, this is more organic than a lot of the music here. It has a more classic sound. It’s one of the highlights, making it a great choice for title track.
Unsaid
This has a more classic sound, as well. The piano does a lot for the piece. It’s energized and seems more like a modern take on 1970s soft rock balladic music.
Fire Rainbow

Perhaps the best way to wrap this set up, this number seems to be almost a middle ground. Where the first part of the disc was more electronic and the later portions more organic, this seems like a cross between the two.
