Kate Rogers - St. Eustacia (2004) Retail CD
It has to be said that if you are looking for Aim/Rae&Christian style tracks then you might be a bit disappointed by this album. Tracks which have built Kate Rogers' reputation like "Sail", "Fine", "Not Just Anybody" etc (see Kate Rogers vs Grand Central) always had stunning production which set the scene for Rogers' majestic voice. However on 'St Eustacia' things are different, with her opting for a more folky, guitary style. There's a problem in doing this since this propels her into the league of Beth Orton, Dido, Emillia Torrini etc where the market is quite over-crowded. Fortunatley, Rogersmore… manages to hold her own excellently. The tracks are warm and deep while carrying her voice well...and what a voice it is! It's quite hard to describe...it's got the enchantment of Dido yet also a Beth Orton edge while being laced with her own Canadian charm. Quite unique. 'Welcome', 'Not Ten Years Ago' and 'Mighty' represent what the album is about with their moody lyrics, powerful choruses and brilliant backing. Rogers suits more downtempo songs as the high-tempo tracks lose some of her ommph but 'This Collective' (the highlight of Winter Chill '04) and 'St Eustacia' finish the album in excellent style. Some folky singers can be accused of meaningless introspection and useless fiddlings, but Rogers keeps it tight and consistant. I didn't expect a repeat of her earlier work and am suprised how often I've listened to this cd...whereas some cds have those tracks that you skip, I enjoy each song on here and therefore highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the best new voice of 2004.
