Po Girl - Follow Your Bliss Album Review

Po Girl Follow Your Bliss Album

Review of Follow Your Bliss Album by Po Girl

Follow Your Bliss is the sixth release from Po Girl, offering their latest collection of urban roots music.

Compared to the likes of Tracy Chapman and Norah Jones I would say that is going too far. Po Girl shares similarities in style to Norah Jones but would not come close in terms of tune or charisma. Imagine a life line in with ups and downs, when you hit flat line that means dead, and that's what we have here - It's all on one level. There isn't anything remotely interesting to grab your attention. The album reminds me of a support act where most of the audience chat about the main act instead of paying attention. With an injection of life this could be more.

That said, it's not bad music. The track, 'Kathy', is a beautiful opener to the album with delicate acoustic strings and a raw but soft voice. It just lacks variety and speed.

That definite American folk style is present within the entire collection of tracks. They may or may not be pleased with an American association, but the banjo, accent on Allison's vocals, and country roots all point in that direction.

You have to admire their desire to experiment with new ideas and try to bring what is essentially Americana folk into the modern day. With additions from a rapper, it does start to spice it up a bit.

There are all the right components for something good here, but the album would benefit from being a little more daring!

Hello Laura Johnstone!This is a little message to you!I am personally a fan of these incredibly talented people, and think this album is very well crafted.I also think it has everything you say it is lacking.It is hilarious to me that your "review" contradicts itself a number of times and is very poorly written. (Sorry, it's just funny to me to write so poorly, while slagging someone else's art).I don't really need to go into detail about how bad your review is, it kind of speaks for itself! So, thank you for doing my work for me!From what I understand, you are some kind of artist yourself? Well then, obviously just very unsatisfied with your own art and need to spend more time focusing on your own life.Take good care and all the best to you and your loved ones.xoxB.N.P.S. There is no rapper on this album!!!
