Learn “How To Run” next as this number will be running through your mind
and ears all day. On track three, “Ursa Minor”, Burton draws you in
vocally as she has a unique quality to her voice. You will be saying to
yourself “Give It All To Me” as the flow is nice and the vibe is just
right. The listener will be asking themselves “Baby Why Are You So
Angry” as Sarah Burton pours her heart out and delivers a powerful
performance. Burton is expressing her innermost feelings and
frustrations with the utmost sincerity on “Baby Why Are You So Angry”.
If “You Say You Want More”, then be prepared to be pleasantly surprised
with tender and delicate vocals and a soft touch musically. Track
seven, “I Thought We Were Having Fun”, has an unconventional song
structure that catches your attention right away and keeps your ears
glued to the speakers. “Love Is Not Enough” is next and I have to say
this song is performed wonderfully as one may find him or herself asking
“Does Love Have Your Back”? I say long live rock and roll as Sarah B
belts out “Why You Gotta Kill My Dreams”. The whole mood is fun ‘n’
lively on “Why You Gotta Kill My Dreams”, so I say play on Sarah and
don’t let anyone stand in your way! It’s time for “Another Mistake”
however there is no mistaking the fact that Sarah B is fully in charge
and on point here. Prepare to be “High By The Beach” as distinct notes
come crashing in your eardums. This song has a heavy impact on the
listener, so kick back, relax and soak it all in. Jump in because the
musical waters are fine as wine on “High By The Beach”. Sarah Burton
decides to go out on a high note on “Today Is Gonna Be The Day” where
she delivers a gripping performance. “Today Is Gonna Be The Day” that
Sarah B shines bright like a star in the sky.
