CD REVIEW: Faith - In Search of Faith
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: Faith
Genre: Pop
CD Review:
Faith, late of the LA Carpool, couldn't've started with a more different style from her previous outings if she tried. She's doing pop here. At least that's how she opens, with the very hip-styled 'Set Me Free'. And of course, she holds her own against the girl groups and Brittany just fine, thank you. 'Listen up needy one I would like to share a matter with you I am me You are you No connection there'. The whole cd is filled with a little bits of life, said differently, with a positive musical attitude.

Sometimes she sounds like Janet Jackson, as in Faith's 'Coolest Drop of Rain'. Then there are those days she's a jazz baby. That's when I love her best. 'Let Me Rock You Down' is closer to pop than Mariah, though I do believe she blends the styles gracefully when still pushing a recognizable tune. (I couldn't hum many Mariah Carey tunes if you pulled a gun on me.)

And of course acoustic rock gets a visit from 'Anytime Is', a smooth ballad high in vocals, soft snaps and all the trappings of first love. 'Oh I can't remember why I even phoned you Maybe this time I thought your words would ring true.' I like that.

You must have Faith.
