New Music - Imogen Heap's Ellipes

Flipping through the pages of a back issue Wired magazine, I stumbled onto a music review. I recognized the name, someone suggested her music on Twitter. Former Frou Frou front woman British artist Imogen Heap.

She's earned herself two Grammy nomination's for her work on the first Chronicles of Narnia soundtrack and the album Speak for Yourself. I've heard a little of Frou Frou and I was unimpressed and compelled to dig deeper. I've given Heap a chance simply because it seems everyone else has.

This was supposed a review, I thought I was really going to like it, but now this really isn't a review. Ambient music is simply not my thing. No, it is not. It doesn't move me or speak to me in anyway. It just sounds like a bunch of little sounds that sound kind of pretty... and sparkly-ish...twinkle-y....

Her lyrics, though, are kind of interesting. But I'm not going to but the CD for the lyrics.

I'm not a fan. That's that. I'm happy she's caught fire though as she is unique.
