This review is from: Inside Out (Audio CD)
When I first heard that Emmy Rossum was releasing a record I rolled my eyes and thought, 'Great. Another actress turned "singer"'. However, I was still intrigued enough to buy INSIDE OUT based on the comparisons to Imogen Heap (a favorite artist of mine), and because of her impressive work on The Phantom of the Opera (Two-Disc Special Edition). Fortunately, while the comparisons are warranted, I found myself relieved to hear a mixture of different styles as well. I'd say the sound here is a wonderful blend of Frou Frou, Enya, and Sleepthief. And why would that be a bad thing?
Classically trained Emmy Rossum neither took the route of disposable pop or classical crossover but instead chose a rather relaxing and addictive medium. Her breathy, ethereal vocals are absolutely spellbinding, and the lushly driven beats are quite beautiful and hypnotic.
INSIDE OUT may not be perfect in its lack of originality but it's a lovely album from a promising young singer. I was not at all disappointed; just pleasantly surprised.
