Overview

'78

After 10 years fronting the gossamer orchestral sounds of Pink Martini, vocalist China Forbes returns to the folk and country sounds that she largely left on hiatus. Intimate and warm where Pink Martini is cool and arch, Forbes's songs are shaped by Gregg Williams, producer and drummer for Sheryl Crow, The Dandy Warhols, The Wallflowers, and others. Pink Martini fans will be especially beguiled by the concert favorite "Hey Eugene," presented as Forbes originally wrote the song.

China Forbes, the flamboyant frontwoman of Pink Martini, is sure downbeat on this solo CD. Really downbeat. Sleepy, even. This CD is bland adult contemporary pop, the songs forgettable the minute after you hear them, except the lame lyrics will get stuck in your head ("I wish I had a replay to do it over/I know I could do better"...wow, deep). Skip this.

An amazing voice and delightful lyrics. Not as 'boring' as some so-called musicians seems to think. Give her a chance.

Pretty much every song on this CD was made to be featured in the montage sequence for an episode of an hour-long television drama series. If you picture an angsty/thoughtful/tearful protagonist driving in her car or performing some mundane task after the episode's climax, these are the songs you imagine accompanying these images. In fact, I look forward to hearing some of these songs in the ending credits of shows like Gossip Girl, Smallville or Grey's Anatomy. I mean, China Forbes did take a step towards independence from Pink Martini, so kudos to her for creating a different sound, but in the end, this CD is just a little bland. With her amazing voice and talent, though, I hope she finds her niche and her sound with her next album.
