I had $8 NZ left at the airport when leaving Christchurch, NZ this January. There was a table of CD's, priced at $8.00 So, I asked for a NZ artist and the clerk suggested this album, What to Do with Daylight.

This was such a pleasant 'find'. I really enjoy Brooke's style, and her music. She has a soulful voice, and seems to pull from many styles. I would classify her work as a bit of Sarah McLaughlin, Louise Goffin and similar.

I like Save the World the best, followed by Lifeline.

I have, without a doubt adored this girls music from the moment she set foot in the NZ charts...followed her and devourered her music.

So the time comes where it is unavoidable, I must, I must purchase her album. And by gosh, I'm glad I did.

OKay, a few things that annoyed me as a New Zealander is the fact that I knew most of the songs on the album. But ofcourse thats not a problem for most...

I love, love, love arithmetic, with is classical influence and clever lyrics. And absolulty adore Better, with is more pop influenced sound. "Without you" is gorgeous, one of my major *turn up* songs as of now, Saving the world....again, love it! But one track that has been failed to be mentioned in all other reviews is "Indelible". An eastern-style into leads you into the first minute of the song. Gracefully its takes you on to her soothing vocals, and wonderful lyrics, sheading the light on a lovers doubt.

Personally I dislike "Still in love" as i dislike the seeming acid-jazz influence. But thats just me. "Reviere" is another that somewhat disappoints me. But again, thats just me, its a bit too happy-poppy for me. Not that her stunning voice doesnt make them enjoyable.

All in all, i think this Album is going to burn a hole in my cd player, cas it is Hot! (cheesy but true).

This album is by one of New Zealand's best. Better is a truly touching song with an absolutely divine lyrical content. For anyone who likes nice, relaxing music, this is a must have! Go and buy it now!

This is a great collection of songs and very uplifting and inspirational. All of the songs are beautifully written and sung by Brooke Fraser. I listen to it over and over again. If you want to hear something fresh and inspiring, have a listen to this one. It's a must have.

Crafting an album can be a most difficult task to take on-board I'd imagine. The record label funding studio time, the artist(s) working with the producer(s) to select the right tone, beat and structure of the tracks in question, not to mention the artist themselves working out which coveted selection of musical cuts they have to choose from. Then there's all the promotional work to barter, along with marketing the final product; well, you get the idea.

So for a debut release to be as excellent as this is, it makes you wonder. Is there is any room for improvement? The answer is yes.

Enter, Brooke Fraser and her very outstanding view of what musical notation, harmony and lyrics should really sound like.

The whole medley of the album itself can put you in various scenes as you "Waste Another Day" in your life, because the beats just feel so right.

Case and point; the first track, "Arithmetic" almost sounds as if you've endured from the storm only to reflect back out your window and ponder questions of loved ones.

Track six, "Without You" has that café thing happening, where you could be sipping Lattés with your partner late on a Thursday afternoon, surrounded by the coolest of social cats.

Tracks three and seven, "Still In Love" & "Reverie" while still retaining the buzz that is society coffee, have elements (well, I thought so) of old school Acid Jazz similar to that of the Brand New Heavies' Brother/Sister album. The only things missing on some of these cuts were the lack of horns, but in retrospect we aren't reviewing a Jazz artist so I'll move right along.

On a recent trip to New Zealand I was introduced to Brooke Fraser's music and absolutely loved what I heard. She has a wonderful voice with extensive range and her music is truly refreshing.

First let me say that the CD contains some really good songs and a couple of great ones ("Lifeline" and "Mystery" are personal favorites). But when I bought the CD, I thought all I was doing was saving a couple of USD over the $8.99 cost of the MP3 album. Turns out the CD is "Abridged" (thus the "ABR" over Brooke's name in the lower right corner) and contains only 8 of the 11 tracks on the MP3 album. The most notable omission, in my opinion, is "Indelible" (the other two, "Still in Love" and "Reverie," are nice but not favorites). If I had noticed the "Track Listings" section just above "Editorial Reviews," I might have gone ahead and simply bought the MP3 album. My recommendation: Feel free to get the CD while supplies last, but definitely buy the MP3 album.
