After many weeks of waiting for it to be available here in Naga, it finally arrived at the local record bars yesterday, Friday. It was worth it. Pretty much.
The songs are awesome, with a lot of soul and personality. Sarah Geronimo's influences for the album were evident, like Paramore's "The Only Exception" and Norah Jone's draggy-but-soulful style. So far, I'm loving every track off it, and in contrast to her previous albums, this one is definitely not tiresome to listen to. Though I'm used to hearing her belt out songs, this mellow album of hers really got me wanting to hear more of this side of her music.
The cover is extremely appropriate too:
She looks so beautiful! If I could meet her and talk to her for a whole day, I would gladly pack for Manila. She's influenced my music a lot, alongside Demi Lovato, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, and Beyonce.
Listen to her music! You'll be enchanted. :)
