Come the Storm

Come the Storm

by Eileen Rose


1 New & Used Starting at $16.49


Although raised in Boston, singer Eileen Rose made her first two albums in Britain. Now, with her latest record, Rose seems to be influenced by some straightforward American rock & roll on the opening "Last New Year's Eve," which sounds like a countrified version of the Pretenders, with Rose more than capable of hitting notes à la Chrissie Hynde. But she strays from this with the midtempo, Americana-flavored "Never Be the Same," which brings to mind a softer, gentler Kathleen Edwards or Lucinda Williams. Things improve with the midtempo soul-pop of "Stagger Home," which Rose nails perfectly -- and the same can be said for the ensuing softer "Ocean of Fire," which showcases her strong, powerful pipes. However, things get upended with the slow, crunchy rocker "Nothing But Blue," which sounds like a cross between Shelby Lynne and Tift Merritt and is one of the more memorable efforts here. Some songs span five or nearly six minutes, but aren't the type to sag at any point, judging by the pleasing, heart-tugging "Staying In." The low point on the album is the simple train-chugging "White Wave," which picks up steam but really goes nowhere. Rose redeems herself, though, with the hymn-like spiritual "Time to Go"
