For those who have heard Marie's music through her YouTube videos, the first comment that I will make is that the record sounds nothing like the acoustic/ coffeehouse style/ stripped down versions that exist online. This record has all the makings of a slickly produced pop record, with some extra gloss thrown in for good measure. The record is extremely refined, and sounds, well, like a pop record in terms of production. With that being said, that does not take away from Marie's beautiful voice, amazing songwriting abilities, and gorgeous looks. I would have, however, preferred a record that sounded a bit more organic in terms of production, but you can't have it all I suppose.
One highlight on the record is the extremely catchy hook of "Traffic", a song that I first fell in love with from her online video. I still prefer the acoustic version better, but still a great track nonetheless. The raw emotion that Marie' expresses through her autobiographical tune "Miss Invisible" is evident in the recording, and is absolutely brilliant. "Unfold", "Beauty in Walking Away", "Better off Alone" and "Voice on the Radio" are other tracks that are must listens.
Marie's keeps it simple with respect to her songwriting, sticking to autobiographical story telling in her lyrics paired with simple melodies. Beauty in simplicity. Overall, a great record by a great artist. Marie' deserves all the accolades in the world, and she has put together a great record here. A record that stands on its own two feet when compared with other in the pop-rock genre. A must listen.
The first song, "Fool," with its acoustic guitar by Miss Digby herself sets the pace for this album.Read more ›
"Under my umbrella ella ella/eh eh eh"
not once but *four* times! Other songs such as "Girlfriend", "Stupid For You", and "Miss Invisible" are garden variety songs that won't find much interest beyond the middle and high school girl demographic. It is disappointing that Unfold seems to be targeted at such a narrow audience. Digby does, however, avoid some of the instrumental trappings that many of the CDs for this target market fall into. She does not overly rely on the monotonous bass line or electronics that many of the club oriented teen pop feature. Rather she features piano, acoustic, and electric guitar that are arranged pretty well throughout the CD. Overall, Unfold shows Digby to be an artist of promise that is still somewhat unmet. With some better song choices/songwriting she has the potential to be an artist to be reckoned with.

Best possible first effort. Hope to hear lots more from her. I can't understand how her version of "Umbrella" didn't displace Rhianna's. It's stunning.Published 7 months ago by 348

I like this album. She has a sweet voice, with sweet simple music. It's very much chick music, but I'm a chick, so I can listen to it as much as I like.Published on November 10, 2013 by A. Almeida
