Product Description

Music Of Centro America ~ Wreck Of The Day

Amazon.com

Twenty-year-old Anna Nalick is the rare artist who makes you want to grab pop music's wheels by the spokes so they'll stop spinning so fast. "Wait," the 11 songs on this debut disc say collectively to the newly initiated, "there's something substantial here." An onslaught of substance is more what it feels like, actually, and it grabs hold early. Though each of these songs is distinctive enough to avoid congealing with the others into a gorgeous glop of introspection, heavy sighs, and reflection, leadoff track and first single "Breathe (2 A.M.)" works small wonders as a flagship song. Its simple, lonely piano swirls into guitars that stop just short of rocking, allowing plenty of room for Nalick's unaffected voice to spill in. When it does, the music turns forest-thick and dreamy--influences run the Tori Amos indie singer-songwriter gamut, with streaks of Jewel and Alanis Morissette spiking out--but there's a naturalness and urgency to her singing that saves every chorus and verse from clouding over. Now that she's cautiously alighted into pop territory, sophisticated listeners will do well to dust off their welcome mats. --Tammy La Gorce

Wreck Of The Day (2006). A re-release of Anna Nalick's debut album.

In 2005, female singer-songwriter Anna Nalick released her Top-20 charting debut, Wreck Of the Day. It showed that there was more to pop than money-raking MTV rap stars and emo boy bands clogging up radio time, and it showed that Anna was truly a force to be reckoned with. Only one year after WOTD's original release date, this album already gets re-released. How did this turn out? Read on for my review...

Well, as another reviewer here put it, I didn't expect Anna to put out year-old material and repackage it just to grab more money from her fans. This is essentially the same album as last year, with three unreleased demos and a new spin on the title track. If you haven't bought the original, stop reading and BUY THIS NOW. This is the ideal version to own.

To fans of the original, however, is this worth buying again? Well, I don't really think so. The new spin on the title track is faster and more pop-driven than before and loses the desperate, towering feel of the original. As far as the demos, "Drink Me" was already released in Japan, so that leaves the other two tracks, "Soldier" and "More Than Melody". Despite leaving promise, they're still....demos. They lack the production quality and direction that the previous songs do.

In any case, those wanting to check out Anna or are REALLY itching to drop another $15 on the extra tracks should probably go for it. Those looking for new material should just wait; latest news has Anna announcing that she'll be heading back into the studio come November.

A Kid's Review on August 15, 2006
Format: Audio CD
I bought the original wreck of the day about a month after it was released and it is AMAZING. I was so excited for new songs that I bought this album too. Don't get me wrong, the new songs are REALLY good too. I just wish I would have known you can buy them on iTunes.

My advice:

If you do not own the original Wreck of the Day--buy this one instead

If you DO own the original--buy "Wreck 06" "more than melody" "drink me" and "soldier" off of iTunes. (the album artwork is NOT worth your money).

Also...

If you like "Breathe 2am" and are not sure if you should buy an Anna album at all, my advice is DO. Breathe was the only song I had heard from her (and I only heard it once) before i bought the album

The latest in a line of moody, deep female vocalists, California native Anna Nalick claims the influences of Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, The Cranberries, Blind Melon, John Mayer and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Pretty heady stuff for a 21 year old, who got her big break by knowing the right people at the right time, and having a demo tape handy.

In my opinion, she sounds like a mixture of Alanis Morissette and Sara McLaughlin, with the youthful buzz of Avril Lavigne in ballad mode.

Slower and more introspective than current pop offerings, her eleven song debut album sounds like something from a much more seasoned performer, not unlike fellow youngsters Joss Stone and LeAnn Rimes.

Nalick wrote all the songs on the album, blending haunting melodies a la Ms. McLaughlin with spiritually uplifting lyrics. The best songs on the album are "Breathe (2 AM)" where she sounds very similar to Alanis Morissette; "Citadel" a song that would fit in on any Sara McLaughlin album; "Paper Bag" which as you might guess sounds like an Avril Lavigne ballad; "Satellite" my personal pick; and the very Cranberries track "In My Head"; but they're all pretty good.

A young talent with a bright future.

Anna Nalick may not stick out on a rack of CDs. She's another young, beautiful singer-songwriter. But, there is more substance to her album than most artists have in a single song. There are extremely catchy songs, extremely beautiful songs, but all are extremely well-written. There are no weak songs on this album. Every single song is a gem. Most of the songs can be grouped into one of two categories - folk/soft rock or pop in the style of Michelle Branch. Anna writes and sings both kinds beautifully, and it is important to note that her voice can be overpowered by her amazing songwriting. But, she does have a very pure, beautiful voice. If you've only heard "Breathe (2 AM)", the entire album isn't like that. There a few similar tracks, but many more are in the same vein as Michelle Branch. So, if you like anything Michelle Branch, buy this album because you'll love it.

1. Breathe (2 AM) - The first single. At first, it was my least favorite, but it just keeps growing on me, and it is now one of my favorites. Great songwriting, both in melody and lyrics. 9.6/10

2. Citadel - My original favorite. A very good song, and a spectacular chorus. However, other songs have grown on me more, but still a great song. 9.3/10

3. Paper Bag - A very Michelle Branch song. Very good, and I think it could be very successful. A good song, but there are better ones. 9.2/10

4. Wreck of the Day - One of my favorite songs on the album. I absolutely adore the lyrics, and the melody is wonderful again. 9.7/10

5. Satellite - Another great song, which I think could be successful. 9.4/10

6. Forever Love (Digame) - A good slow song, but the other slow songs are, in my opinion, more impressive. 9/10
