Elevate Difference

City Beach

When I first received this album, I already had preconceived ideas. I thought the music would be terrible and the lyrics even worse. I was actually pleasantly surprised. When I put the disc in and started listening to the music, it was very positive with good beats. The singer’s voice is mellow and she reminds me of such singers as Melissa Ethridge and Sheryl Crow, which are two of my favorites.

This is definitely a feel good compilation. It is full of real life lyrics that I’m sure many people could relate with. It is also relaxing and heartfelt and could be enjoyed by yourself and a partner. These songs are thought provoking and image laden and cover the spectrum between soft and hard. I was actually taken back to my younger years while listening to this music, to some of my own relationships.

Some of my favorite songs are “Happy Warriors,” “NYC Boys,” “Eye Candy,” “Love is a Luxury,” “Kaleidoscope” and "Disconnection." This album helped me to relax, remember fond memories and enjoy the music. Give it a listen and maybe you will remember days gone by too.
