Holly Palmer
Holly Palmer (Reprise Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Holly Palmer delivers a style I would label as "Pop-Folk." From folk like tunes like "Five Little Birds," to the current single, "Different Languages." Each song whether it be a shining pop song, or folkish tune, you can sense a combination of the two in almost every track. Take "Wide Open Spaces" for example. It has a folkish tint to it, yet it still has a very healthy pop dosage with it. "Fourteen Year Old Moment is no different." Throw in some funk, and you have a funk-pop tune with roots in folk, and you can help but fall in love with Holly's soothing voice. She has a very beautiful voice that is very pleasant to listen to.

This album is very mellow, and a great album to fall asleep to. Don't take that the wrong way. Take it as a compliment. It soothes your soul and relaxes the mind to the point where if you lay down, you will start to nod off if you want to, yet if you are up and around you can sit there and enjoy the music with no side effects. I would have to give this CD a B+. Although it is a very nice album with deliciously nice vocals, it has some very hooky pop songs, that are followed up by songs that don't live up to the previous track.
