Breath from Another

All Music Guide - Tom Demalon
The first release from the Toronto duo Esthero, Breath from Another blends a number of musical styles into a hypnotic, and a bit unfocused, potpourri of sound and texture.

The music is heavy on programming, but also makes good use of horns on several tracks. There's a breezy air to the whole affair on tracks like the jazzy, lounge pop of "Heaven Sent" and the subtle, percussive feel of the Latin-tinged "Half a World Away." The best offerings are "That Girl," which wouldn't sound out of place on a Swing Out Sister record, and "Country Livin' The World I Know," with its lovely vocal melody and gentle keyboard washes. Breath from Another is too scrumptious sounding to be ignored, even if nothing truly sticks with you after the fact.

    Try It, You Might Like It.

    I'm on my 3rd copy of this album. It's comfortingly melancholy, but also quirky and makes odd phone calls late at night. Funky, mellow, soothing, odd, trip-hoppy, pretty. The rapped parts on the first song took me by surprise, and it fits right in. The chorus on Heavensent is kind of toes-out rawk. Sounds of horns and string instruments, good beats.

    I would give it more stars...

    My second favorite CD ever. Just an amazing peice of work, genius almost. Esthero's voice is so entoxicating and comfortable, that it's easy to feel like you're in a bed full of pillows and sleeping heavily. Superheroes and Swallow Me are two of the most wonderful songs I've ever heard. This is some good stuff.

    simply good music

    when i first heard this CD, I wasn't very impressed. The songs seemed too much alike. But after listening to them a few times, each track brings out a totally different world of its own.
