"ALISHA RULES THE WORLD"
IRRESISTIBLE U ARE - Album opener, a sweet almost lullaby short song, gorgeous harmonies and sweet vocals with an Eastern feel and childlike kaleidoscope backing.
INTENSE - The most angry and most Rock song on the album, very Alanis Morissette, would not be out of place on Alanis' own "Jagged Little Pill". Great song.
I AM, I FEEL - This was the track that got me hooked, as a fan of Wendy and Lisa (part of Prince's Revolution band), this track did remind me of their beautiful harmonies and melodies and the vocals had a hint of Alanis Morissette's croaky angry vocals, a class song.
INDESTRUCTIBLE - A mesh of Spice Girls and Sneaker Pimps with Kelli Ali, ambient sounds and almost psychedelic backing.
ALISHA RULES THE WORLD - This title track had elements of Motown, pure Pop and was a little like The Bangles, great song.
WHITE ROOM - 70s Psychedelic track with almost Cyndi Lauper-like vocals, a driving rhythm complete with echoed harmonies, also has hints of Prince's Rock Funk.
STONE IN MY SHOE - Very nice ballad, similar to the opener "Irresistible U Are" with sweet, breathy, almost whispered vocals until the catchy chorus. Reminds me a little of Madonna's "Dear Jessie" in its composition.
PERSONALITY LINES - A 50 second 80s Electronic Pop track, starting with a telephone ringing and obviously slating the chat line industry in a humorous little dig.
I WON'T MISS YOU - A Rock track complete with a few "na na na na" angry chants and is a Garbage/B-52s hybrid, love this as the vocals are to the fore and its Electronic Rock at its best.
THE GOLDEN RULE - Another short snippet at just over a minute, an almost mono track with a kind of Swing/Jazz feel and comes with obligatory "doo doo" moments. Fun track.
JUST THE WAY U LIKE IT - This is a lot like Prince, a minimal funky Pop backing and sensual breathy vocals, a touch of class.
AIR WE BREATHE - A lovely track, Belinda Carlisle meets Susanna Hoffs, atmospheric at times, almost Trance backing but a brilliant Pop song, complete with minimal guitars to make it a rocky ballad.
ADORE U - Ends the album and is also covered with a Prince influence. A quiet start building into a crescendo of chorus at the end. The Electronic backing is similar to the sounds Prince was using for his 1999/Purple Rain era. Great track to end a great album.
