Album Name: Equilbrium
Artist: Alice Marie
Year/Label: 2002 / Independent
Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell
Alice Marie’s debut EP is short, but offers music that speaks volumes. On “Lipstick Diaries” she sings a little bit like Natalie Merchant to a folk backing. The strings on this track are nothing short of stunning.
“So Long” starts out like a piano ballad and then gathers speed. It’s a rock anthem waiting to hit the airwaves.
“Madeleine” has a psychedelic feel to it that is very well handled. Alice Marie’s tale of a haunted girl is affecting. Her voice is lovely here.
“Seasoned” is a simple but sweet song of enduring love.
“Equilibrium” is a great start for Alice Marie and I hope she makes more music likes this.
