MY xINNA REVIEW (CD 2)
New Double CD out now on Magic Records (Poland).
It comes in a fantastic luxury tri-fold Digi Pak sleeve with full lyric insert. Very nicely presented indeed. Easy enough to get from the UK (eBay is you friend) plus the usual Polish online retailers who ship overseas.
As per usual this is my personal review and does not reflect the views and/or opinions of the other EFUK admins.
I have decided on this occasion only to cover the 4 tracks on CD2. I have made my views pretty clear in the past on how i feel about Ewa's Jazz direction so there is little point in repeating it here. I did manage to listen to CD1 all the way through and have no intention of repeating that experience again any time soon.
So anyway lets get on to CD2.
It contains 4 tracks. 3 new and one not new but unreleased on this format before. Approximate English translations of song titles.
1. TU (HERE) - Lead track and accompanied by that great video clip. It's a fantastic piano led 'semi' ballad and in my opinion is one of the best songs that Ewa has ever performed. It's up there with her very best and is destined to be a favourite for a very long time.
2. NIEKONIECZNIE ( NOT NECESSARILY) - Fairly nice little Pop song. Mid tempo. Not bad at all. Nothing really special but a reasonable enough effort.
3. NA OSTRZU (ON THE EDGE) - Another pretty good, standard Pop song. More up tempo than the others. Nothing wrong with it but it seems to me to be a 'by the numbers' song? Ewa's vocal is a bit subdued here but it's not a unpleasant listen.
4. W SILNYCH RAMIONACHI (THE STRONG ARMS) - Duet with Lubert. I fully admit that i know nothing whatsoever about Lubert but i do like this song. It has a very strong chorus with great vocals from Ewa.
So a little taster then of some new material and a successful one at that. One future classic track and 3 more pretty good ones.
Signs are positive for a new album whenever it may come.
