CD REVIEW: Marly Hornik – Say You Do
By Ben Ohmart - 08/08/2002 - 04:09 PM EDT

Artist: Marly Hornik
Album: Say You Do
CD Review: First – the music. Marly sounds like the offspring of Alanis Morissette and Sheryl Crow while retaining Jewel’s gift for beauty, both audibly and physically. She delights in the genre that today must be called pop, though really it’s lite alternative rock.

When the words of ‘Say You Do’ start, you begin thinking, hmmm… this could be something wonderful, something of a class act. Then by the time the 4 minutes have passed, ending with the smooth rock vocals at the end, you know it’s true. ‘I’m tired of sittin here workin for the landlord’s money in the bed everyday is the same old story I try to smile but I mostly just worry.’

Next – the story. This NYC singer was one of many people wiped out (in several ways) by the Sept. 11th events. But she didn’t let that stop her or the music. And neither did the fans, who donated over $10k to get this cd made. That doesn’t happen every decade. If it does, I never hear about it. It’s amazing. And works. Say You Do is an album with a fresh and professional feel, and is a delight thru the entire 10 tracks.

Oh, and the fans? For their donations, they got some neat stuff and music for their kindness. Something to think about, eh, artists?
