I would be a shame if this album didn't got Platinum and a REAL SHAME if it didn't go Gold.
It grows on you, though. Song by song, you'll discover the range of this girl's talent and catchiness. The next song I grew to enjoy, "Blindsided", is a fun enough song, but Im not sure why I grew to enjoy it. Probably one of the most mediocre songs on the album.
"Trust Me (You Don't Want To See This)" is an AMAZING song! I can't get over it. It's funky, interesting, and very clever. The guitar in the beginning is what drew me in. See, a bit of background about ME (which won't really help you understand the music any) is that I listen to music while I sleep. Usually while I'm in the process of drifting towards being awake, if there's a song on I don't know, I'll typically love it. I don't know why I do this, but it happens quite frequently. It happened for this song, and now I am addicted to it. She is basically warning a potential lover to cover his eyes while she sows her wild oats. It's a fun song!
"Is This Hollywood" is my current Lucy Woodward trip. This song is powerful in it's own right. She moves across country and disjoints her life in an effort to get over a scorned love. The chorus is beautiful, haunting, and addictive.
To be honest, I haven't given the rest of the album a whole lot of listen because I dwell on those songs. I guarantee that I will soon find another song to love, just give me time.
Oh, and yeah...pick this up.
None of the songs pack the same punch or deliver the message harder than "Dumb Girls" and "Blindsided". The songs, to me, are the best on the CD. They are R&B influenced and very catchy, with "Dumb Girls" being about getting dumped and trying to move on, and "Blindsided" being about being in love with someone and wondering how it happened.
Lucy Woodwards voice is surprisingly, a powerful, soulful mixture of Sheryl Crow and Pink (more of the latter) with just a drop of Christina Aguilera. It seems to me that musically, her influcences are Jewel and all those other female singer/songwriters and maybe some R&B artists. Lucy's lyrics are unique but definetely not as enigmatic and puzzling as Nelly Furtado's or No Doubt's.
However, Lucy does fall victim to some songs that sound like other artists. Mostly "Trust Me" which probably will remind you of Avril Lavigne's "Complicated" and "What Good For Me" which will also remind you of Michelle Branch's "Everywhere". Both these songs fall into the alternative/pop category.
These mishaps shouldn't steer you away from buying the CD since her voice makes up for it but be aware that while it is an excellent debut, it will be hard for her to distinguish herself from the Avrils/Vanessa Carltons/Michelle Branches/Pinks/ etc.
1) DUMB GIRLS 5/5
2) BLINDSIDED 6/5 (THE NEXT SINGLE)
3) TRUST ME(YOU DON'T WANNA SEE THIS) 5/5
4) IS THIS HOLLYWOOD 6/5
5) THE TROUBLE WITH ME 4/5
6) WHAT'S GOOD FOR ME 5/5
7) STANDING 5/5
8) THE BREAKDOWN 4/5
9) ALWAYS SOMETHING 6/5
10) GETTIN IT ON 5/5
11) DONE 6/5
*her three ballads (SOMETHING ALWAYS, STANDING, AND DONE) are all amazing, i am never really attached to ballads but i am soooo attached to these beacuse they are just so beautiful and awesome. i have never seen such ballads so beautifully written*

I do appreciate Lucy Woodward's debut - enough that hearing "Dumb Girls" twice spurred me to eventually chase down the album. Read morePublished on December 18, 2004 by Lavender
WHILE YOU CAN is one of my all-time favourite. This girl has talents. Her voice suits the songs incredibly well. Reminds me of Natalie Imbruglia. Read morePublished on July 29, 2004 by C. Liew
