Overview

Following in the wake of dozens of promiscuous pop queens and wannabe good girls gone bad, Delta Goodrem's presence in the music industry is a refreshing change. From the title of her album to its cover image, Innocent Eyes reflects a mature yet clean display of true vocal talent in the slush of today's overproduced pop. With an entourage of live instruments (as opposed to synthesizers), Goodrem's piercing voice washes through the meticulously penned and planned tracks. Her style bears a cute chill that satisfies the ears and teases them for more at the same time. On poignant ballads like "Butterfly," Goodrem's emotional depths arise in a Mandy Moore style; while during "Predictable," Goodrem's devilish side trickles through one of just a few aggressive pop tracks. The songs don't feel dated, they're more Celine-classical, which gives them staying power for many years to come. The ballads, and there are plenty on this album, aren't overly schmaltzy and don't seem to weigh down the upbeat numbers, partially due to Goodrem's ability to infuse personality into some of the lazier tunes. Highlights on the album include "Longer," "Born to Try," and the title track, which are pop gems in purest form. With five smash number-one singles and several co-writing (or sole writing) credits, the debut release by a bright future pop star is a more-traditional creamy creation, with layers of talent that should keep listeners pleased for many years.
