Label: New West Records Releasedate: 06-03-2020
American Singer Songwriter Caroline Rose is releasing a new album. It follows up the 2018 debut “Loner”. It is called “Superstar” and is available now.
One would easily say that between a loner and a superstar there is a world of difference but it may not be that dramatical in the world of Caroline Rose. If you listened to the first release, you recognize a lot of it on this new one. Popsongs, catchy and not too wild.
At first the album seems ok. It has calm music that is easy to listen to. A song like “Do You Last Forever” is one that sticks out. Refrains that are maybe a bit predicatable but for a feelgood sound it works well. Now, when listening a bit further you start to notice the lack of variation. The whole album is quite alike and therefore you grow a bit bored with it. “Comman Z” for example feels like we heard it a couple of times before. No, that last part of the album you may find yourself looking at the clock thinking how long it would take before the album ends. If you have the intention of sitting it out of course.
Maybe we are the wrong medium for this artist, but the album just did not interest us too much. The beginning is fine but then you heard it all. We hoped for a bit more spice at some point but it just appeared too flat.
