Courtney Yasmineh “Beautiful Lonely”

September 27, 2009

I had trouble getting into the beginning of this album, but my defenses were worn down enough to really get into “Daydrunk.” It has those fine pop sensibilities that the kids are always talking about.
“Stars” has good musical accompaniment, but it is crying for a remix. The original version is just a little too slow for it to get going.
“Prison” gets the tempo going, and the results are worth a listen. It’d be nice if the rest of the tracks had the passion and rhythm found here.
Otherwise, there’s nothing lame about the record, but it all runs together, and there’s not a lot memorable to speak of here.
