"A Perfect Dream" CD
Genres: pop, adult alternative, alternative
Jan 13 - 19 2003
Fimm (seraphim - get it?) specializes in an enjoyable blend of
dark, moody pop that, while surprisingly original, still manages to be
completely accessible. While she is responsible for the songwriting,
vocals, and piano, she also enlists the talent of numerous other
back-up musicians, including ones on bass, drums, guitar, trumpet, and
sax. As well, a large portion of the music is electronic, with
numerous synth sounds going on in the background.
A Perfect Dream is her second album so far, and it is a very
enjoyable one. "Wrong Side Up" is an excellent example of
what she is capable of. It starts out with some sparse piano keys, but
quickly moves into a warm groove by way of percussion, bass, and Fimm's
voice. "Alien Boys" is a similar tune, except without the
bass and percussion. Fimm's voice stands up surprisingly well
with the piano accompaniment - the blend sounds very reminiscent of
some of Sarah McLachlan's work.
Altogether, A Perfect Dream is a very nice album that will
appeal to pop fans in look for something a little different. Targeted
at older audiences, specifically the "adult alternative"
camp of music fans, this is definitely worth a shot if you're looking
for something to relax to.
