I first heard Inara George while listening to the Grey’s Anatomy soundtrack. Being one of the best songs on the record, I knew I had to check her out. I am so glad I did. Inara’s tranquilizing vocals have a peculiar resemblance to Bjork in her first track “Mistress,” though the music is nothing the same. “Genius,” with its drumming keyboard beat and sharp strokes of the guitar knocks you out of the daze you’ve been put in by her soft vocals and easy strumming in the previous two songs, and makes you remember that you were actually doing something before being lulled into its dreamy, bluesy sound. A number of tracks fall somewhere between these two worlds of under-water composition and new-age pop. My favorite of all the songs is the dark, seductive “Turn On/Off” with its tantalizing lyrics and intoxicating sound. Although Inara George had created a great sound of her own, bits and pieces sound as though Norah Jones and Fiona Apple meshed together. So, if you like either one of those artists, or are a fan of the music on Grey’s Anatomy, pick this album up. Even if you aren’t, you might be captivated by this genre-escaping work of art.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
