Linda Sundblad - Pick Up The Pieces

"Everyone in love take a piece of my heart"

Here's an example of a song with pleasant (if not entirely memorable) verses saved by a dynamite chorus. In fact, the chorus here is so punchy that Sundblad skips the middle eight altogether and goes right back for more. I really love Linda Sundblad and was looking forward to her second solo release (her first being one of the best pop albums of the last five years). As a whole it's not quite up to the last one, but it's still full of excellent pop that puts anything released Stateside to shame. But back to that chorus. Of all the new songs, Pick Up The Pieces sounds most at home beside the album's best track (and first single) To All My Girls. It's got a bright, energetic synth sound that's very "80's disco anthem," while the lyrics manage to have a melancholic quality to them that are somewhat at odds with the song's energy. Sundblad does pop in the late-80's Madonna mold. Because of this, her songs have a classic sound to them that outlasts attempts by similar pop divas. Check out the album. Full review coming soon.
