CD REVIEW: The Alice Project - The Big Number
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: The Alice Project
Genre: Pop
CD Review:
Nope, it's not an Alice Cooper tribute album. The Alice be Alice Leon, scooting her vocals around a bit like Amy Grant in the pop era. While I like the rock/pop opening of 'A Room of My Own' (which seems to me, subject wise, to be a bit of a kid's song about independence), I prefer the wicked tone of 'Bob'. She sings simply, but the spite on her old flame is there like an iced campfire. 'I saw white you saw black / guess that's the reason / we're not going back'. Yep, that would do it! 'Goodbye Old Friend' brings back to me those early 90s days when all the Queen members were doing their ballads to the late great Freddie Mercury. Anyway, this is a gentle rock end song that would be great at a funeral (and I mean that with respect). Some fine pop and rock and a bottle of unplugged suppressed emotions here. Smile!
