Unspoken

( 6 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lisa Zhito
Long before there was a Christina or Britney, there was a big-voiced 15-year-old named Jaci Velasquez. The young singer's diva aspirations first took Christian music by storm, then the Latin music field, making her a unique crossover sensation. Now age 22 and a music industry veteran, Velasquez has long been ready to leave her sugary pop and superficial "I love Jesus" message behind. So it's refreshing to hear Unspoken, which introduces us to Jaci Velasquez the woman. Her depth of experience and mature vocal style are in ample evidence here, as she blends a smooth-as-butter tone with Sarah McLachlan-inspired etherealism. More to the point is the lyric candor on display ...

Long before there was a Christina or Britney, there was a big-voiced 15-year-old named Jaci Velasquez. The young singer's diva aspirations first took Christian music by storm, then the Latin music field, making her a unique crossover sensation. Now age 22 and a music industry veteran, Velasquez has long been ready to leave her sugary pop and superficial "I love Jesus" message behind. So it's refreshing to hear Unspoken, which introduces us to Jaci Velasquez the woman. Her depth of experience and mature vocal style are in ample evidence here, as she blends a smooth-as-butter tone with Sarah McLachlan-inspired etherealism. More to the point is the lyric candor on display throughout Unspoken. Indeed, the title is somewhat revealing, as Velasquez shares a heart that had previously been camouflaged by glossy production and a superficial message. "I tremble at rejection, I'm scared to be alone," she sings on "The Real Me," one of her seven co-writes on Unspoken. "This is the real me, with flaws and fears of intimacy. Can you deal with the real me?" Hearing her powerful delivery here and elsewhere, the answer is an enthusiastic affirmative. Velasquez is still a vocal sensation, but the nuance on a diva-style anthem like "I'm Alive" shows a new maturity -- even better is her stellar performance on the Tommy Sims–produced "Shine," one of the best cuts on Unspoken, as emotionally deep as it is musically impressive. Jaci Velasquez has long been a star in the Christian music field, but this record reveals the singer as a true artist.

    Jaci is Awesome!!!!!!

    This is a great cd. It's different from the her other cds music style wise, but it's more personal beacuse she helped to write a lot of the songs. The songs are really good. Some really good ones are Something, Lost Without You, and Real Me

    Jaci Velasquez has amazing music

    I love all Jaci’s music. She has such a beautiful and versatile voice. Even though I am just learning Spanish I love to listen to her sing in Spanish as well. I recommend this album (& all her albums)to anyone who loves christian music!!

    Jaci invites you into a deeper, darker place

    Jaci's latest cd delves into a more emotional and, thought evoking mindset than any previous Cristian recording I have ever heard, while still prasing god in the process. songs like "the real me," and "glass house" flesh out her charecter into a more muti-dimentional person. while the title track "unspoken" implys a reference to current international conflicts. Jaci is also displaying more consistency and originality. the track "he" might ceribrally remind one of "adore" from "crystal clear." Another connection to he privious CD is her percived desire to communicate with the listener. Other than that this is a significant depature than her previous album. the ususally upbeat "Crystal Clear" contrast greatly with deep undertones of "Unspoken" especially in the tracks "Lost without you," and "Something" compared to "C.C.'s" "every time I fall" and "Imagine me without you" Overall: an exellent CD, but even more awesome with "Crystal Clear" P.S. If you can get both
