I am so ecstatic to receive this music album. I have heard Mary Lambert's song "Secrets" on the radio and I really love it. After listening to the full album, I have to say that I just adore her voice and her style of music. Her voice is so mesmerizing and reminds me a little of Sarah McLachlan with that gut-wrenching hit-you-in-the-heart-while-it-hurts kind of way. She has a way with words that brings out emotions. She makes you feel [truly, madly] deeply.
"Secrets" really resonated with me. I think I can totally relate to most of the words because I feel like it's my life. It would have been a great theme song for when I was younger when my [original] family was truly dysfunctional and I had just become a new Mom.
Aside from her hit song "Secrets" (my fave), the other songs that really moved me were "When You Sleep", "Monochromatic", and "Wounded Animal". I love slow drawn out make-you-feel deeply type of songs. Maybe it just depends on the mood I am in but these kind of songs make me so emotional. I guess sad songs will do that to ya. There's just something about depressing songs that I connect with so well. I didn't always look at that glass as half full!
"So Far Away" is pretty catchy as well. I think that would be my next favorite song. I really liked her version of "Jessie's Girl". Such a great rendition of a classic song that I grew up with. "Dear One" is a great lyrical poem. I can totally imagine her acting it out on stage on mic night or something.
Mary Lambert is just adorable. After she became popular on the hit song "Same Love" with Macklemore, I was hoping she would come out with her own radio hit and now I am so happy for her. I believe she's just doing fine on her own. :)
