Truly Talented. | Posted June 03, 2008
"Albertine", by Brooke Fraser, is an incredibly well crafted album, sung by an incredibly talented singer/songwriter. At times her sound resembles Nichole Nordeman, sometimes Sarah McLachlin, and still at other times a bit like Sara Groves - which is nothing to balk at. All three of those ladies have an immense talent for writing thought-provoking songs and then delivering them in a way that always leaves me hitting the repeat button - and now, so too does Brooke. Her sound is a wonderful combo of alternative/folk/adult contemporary, and is artistic yet fully accessible at the same time.
I thought I had only just recently heard of her, but then realized I was already a fan from her songs, "Lead Me to the Cross" and "None But Jesus", which were penned for the Hillsong team. Surprise, surprise - just goes to show I should read the liner notes more often. :-)
The standout tracks for me on this album are, "Shadowfeet", "Deciphering Me", "Albertine", "C.S. Lewis Song" and "Hymn".
I highly recommend this album to anyone who loves artists who seamlessly blend art and faith, and do so with heart!
