Ella, Jesse, Warren and Adam make up Killing Heidi with Ella on lead vocals. Just hearing her, you'd expect a young woman in her mid 20's, but at just 16 years of age she really does make Killing Heidi what they are with her extraordinary vocals and song-writing ability.
1. Mascara - It is easy to understand why this went number 1 on the Australian charts. It's rock intro soon goes into a beautiful pop verse and then followed by a rock chorus. It's a fantastic and clever song. 5/5
2. Weir - This is the band's debut single and reached number 6 on the Australian charts. Again another very high quality pop/rock song. When I first heard it, it reminded me a little bit of Cheryl Crowe. 5/5
3. Superman / Supergirl - A very rocky intro, that changes into a slower powerful song and back into a fast rock chorus. Not as good as 'Mascara' but is still a great song, and again fantastic vocals. 4/5
4. Astral Boy - A much slower song, with lovely vocals. The music almost reminds me a bit of Jewel. 4/5
5. Leave Me Alone - Another very powerful rock intro. Only it doesn't soften, the whole song is quite edgy. 3.5/5
6. You Don't Know - Not a favorite track, it's an edgy rock song, but a bit repetitive. 3./5
7. A Jar Labelled Small - Good rock song, that contains a nice soft section before returning to the fast rock. 4/5
8. Class Celebrities - Very edgy fast rock. Unlike some of the 'harsh' sounding songs, this one almost has a melodic sound to it underneath it's edginess. 4.5/5
9. Live Without It - This is my second favorite track after 'Mascara' and should do well as their third single. It's got more a pop sound to it than the previous tracks. Fantastic song and vocals.
10. Real People - Another of the edgy rock songs. Not a bad song. 3.5/5
11. Jon's Song - Interesting intro, with nice vocals. A calmer song that builds up to a faster rock sound. A really good song, and the recipe of combining the melodic'ish pop, with the edgy rock once again works really well, with Ella's voice strong enough to handle it all. 4.5/5
12. Black Sheep - Fantastic final song. More pop than rock, and catchy. 5/5
Killing Heidi released their debut single 'Weir' in Australia a little over a year ago in Australia. Since then they have become the biggest music act in Australia, with a number 1 single and their album 'Reflector' debuting at number 1, and still remains there after 4 weeks.
In a couple of months they hope to take their music overseas where they will become Australia's biggest export without a doubt. Killing Heidi's sibling couple Ella and Jesse are the true talent behind the band, writing all the music themselves and will without a doubt steal the show at this year's A.R.I.A. awards.
The rest of Australia could have been wrong. Both singles 'Weir' and 'Mascara' shot up to the top of the charts.
But two excellent singles don't make an album. I was willing to give Killing Heidi a chance, and bought the album.
This wasn't an album to base on cover; it's hardly a CD that jumps out at you.
The CD starts with the first two releases, so it was a pretty easy CD to start listening to. Typically as the first unheard track is about to play, one normally hopes it's good, otherwise the CD turns out to be a dud. Nothing worse than having "skip" tracks to ruin a CD.
Reflector has no skip tracks. From start to finish, each track is hit material.
