Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on January 3, 2017
If you're looking for "We Are Here" It isn't on this cd. As a matter of fact, the cd has no title, just Alicia's face.
It's her most biographical music although songs titled "The Beginning" and "The Gospel"do sound as if they're
related to the Bible,they aren't. She seems to be straddling the line between her personal musical journey and
the tension that most artists feel between giving your heart into your work and working to please a very fickle
public without losing your own sense of self.

Most of the songs are geared towards indentifying with Odysey's "New York City Girl" of the 1980's who's
now a domestic partner,mother,and maybe even grandmother. Trying to keep herself together and her
children alive.Which is why "We Are Here" is such perfect fit but a glarring omission.
I'm happy with what the cd has but annoyed by what it does not have.
