ALBUM REVIEW: Eliza Doolittle “Eliza Doolittle”

Label: Parlophone
Release Date: 21.06.2010

Following her second single release “Pack Up”, Eliza Doolittle is set to release herself eponymous debut album upon the summer ears of the UK.

This album really could become the soundtrack of summer 2010, laced with its blissful melodies that will have you humming and whistling for some time after…even after only listening to the record once. Doolittle’s voice lends itself perfectly to the album, which seems to shift and switch almost every track to a different genre. This does showcase Doolittle as a greatly ranged singer, adapting to each genre with ease and maturity for such a singer of her age. However this constant shift does make it hard for the album to flow from one track to another or create a sense of a journey.

Nevertheless there is no doubting the talent offered from young Doolittle. Whilst the more down tempo tracks such as “So High” and “Nobody” show off a vulnerable innocent voice, you can’t help but feel that other tracks like “Track 1” and “Go Home” will sooner rather than later be snapped up by some advertisement king and used for a mobile phone or broadband advert.

For a debut album, this is a really strong effort from Eliza Doolittle, especially when we are in a world where it seems like everyone is copying someone else in the music industry. Here we have something a little different, whilst still maintaining its mainstream appeal and familiarity. I look forward to the next single off the album (so long as it’s not the questionable “Mr Medicine”) and expect to hear a lot more of this young talented singer.

Rating: 4/5
