Rachel Platten - Wildfire Review - 3 Stars
new year starts off great here with Rachel
Platten's "Wildfire." This album is pure
pop-rock, and will get your year off to a good ol' Rockin'
start. All of the songs are strong, and well crafted. Several
could be singles.
only fault with this album is the re-issuing of "Fight Song."
This track is already a year old and is now just a distraction that
interrupts an otherwise very good album. Obviously it's included
here to boost sales, but in the end this inclusion could hurt sales.
Anthemic songs such as "Fight Song" are always better left
off of an album and instead let to be singles. Those songs, no matter
how good become annoying and the fact that this song in particular is
already a year old, may put some off. If you can get past the"Fight
Song" the rest of the album is really enjoyable and should
establish Rachel as an emerging artist that you'll want to watch
of this album is wrapped around ideas that range from hope
to uplifting, and the self empowering. The positive centric
messages will remind you of Katy Perry.
rate this effort at 3 Stars and would have rated it higher except for
the year old "Fight Song" on a new release really put me
best tracks here are "Stand by You" "Beating
Me Up" and "Lone Ranger."
Wildfire you get 12 tracks that clock over 40 minutes and 4 of those
could be memorable singles. So my advice to you is get your copy
today without delay.
