Wonder Wonder

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Shawn M. Haney
Wonder Wonder is a fresh and genuine peek into the progressive evolution of talented and notable Chicago singer/songwriter Edith Frost. Her third album is by far her most focused, and her approach is both innovative and charmingly poetic. As the songwriter, Frost breathes new life into her material with introspective lyrical messages and catchy, creative chord changes. The title track is a somber look into her life as a touring singer. "Further" is so fresh and natural that its sweeping melody easily finds its way into the listeners' subconscious.

All Music Guide - Shawn M. Haney
Wonder Wonder is a fresh and genuine peek into the progressive evolution of talented and notable Chicago singer/songwriter Edith Frost. Her third album is by far her most focused, and her approach is both innovative and charmingly poetic. As the songwriter, Frost breathes new life into her material with introspective lyrical messages and catchy, creative chord changes. The title track is a somber look into her life as a touring singer. "Further" is so fresh and natural that its sweeping melody easily finds its way into the listeners' subconscious. One of the most requested and highly acclaimed songs of the year rested in the track "Cars and Parties," which prides itself in its deeply infectious groove, pleasant vocals, and a message detailing surviving life in the hustle and bustle of a big city. The sound of the album as a whole is in greater debt to Frost's backing band, composed of a mixture of several Chicago-area musicians of indie bands such as Eleventh Dream Day, Pinetop Seven, and the Sea and Cake. Frost's unique voice intertwines with the texture and subtle musical flavors of the group to create a sweeping, acoustically panoramic setting, much to the delight of the listener who appreciates fine album production. Wonder Wonder is a work of creative ingenious by one of American's growing songwriters, an album so heavenly in its production quality and musicianship that surprises can be found just around the corner with each and every listen. The songs are simple and natural in feel, and with the budding potential of Edith Frost at the mic, the material can be deemed all the more noteworthy and special.
