KELLI ALI - "TIGERMOUTH" 2003

KELLI ALI 


 "TIGERMOUTH"

2003



INFERNO HIGH LOVE - Formerly lead singer of The Sneaker Pimps, Kelli's debut album opens with this pulsating high tempo Electro track.  Think of Madonna, add a few background searing guitars and an Alternative Rock style and this is it.  Great opener!


 

TEARDROP HITTIN' THE GROUND - Another Electro Rock styled track, and again a catchy chorus.  It is basically Trip Hop rocked up to the hilt! Superb song.


KEEP ON DREAMINGMesmerising, atmospheric Trip Hop that reminds the listener of Kelli's previous band and the classic album, "Becoming X".

ANGEL IN L.A. - A nice enough slow Electonic Pop ballad but its not as punchy and attention grabbing as the first three tracks.

HERE COMES THE SUMMER - This is a beautifully sung New Wave Pop ballad with a little Electronica and Trip Hop.  One of my favourites, melodious and Kelli's vocals are sweet.

FELLOW MAN - Another hint to The Sneaker Pimps' style, atmospheric, mid tempo Trip Hop which really engages the listener.  Memorable chorus again.

SUNLIGHT IN THE RAIN - This time Kelli embraces the Madonna style, and this could be from the Queen of Pop herself.  An almost anthemic slight Dance and Trip Hop ballad that just sounds lovely.

BEAUTIFUL BOY - A weird but good experimental track.  This incorporates a few genres, Trip Hop, Electro, Dance, Funk,Rock and Pop.  It isn't ctchy as such but it keeps you attention.  Unusual but brilliant.

QUEEN OF THE WORLD - A quirky and sweet track that has a slight jazzy and soulful feel.  Sounds very laid back and summery.

WINGS IN MOTION - Slow, probing backing with a cute whispered vocal from Kelli.  Easy listening Trip Hop.  A moody one that (no pun intended) you have to be in the mood for!

THE INFINITE STARS -A surprising track that is a welcome shock.  Straight up New Wave Punk Pop, Transvision Vamp style.  Awesome song.

KIDS - Epic 11 minute track to finish the album which basically incorporates all the elements of this album cleverly intertwined to make a moody effect laden Trip Hop/Electronica track.  Great debut and should have been bigger than it was, criminally ignored.
