A CD that spells change, but not for the better

"Those unsuspecting souls who order Lauren Christy's second CD "sight unseen" on the basis of her magical first outing expecting more of the same may be in for a rude awakening. "Breed" is a far cry from the fragile beauty of those delicate, piano/keyboard dominated songs she performed with such passion on her 1993 debut album.For some unfathomable reason she seems to have toughened up her act, throwing her soft-spoken vocal style and gentle touch overboard in favor of an uncompromising, rock oriented approach in keeping with the likes of Alanis Morissette, K's Choice, Sass Jordan and The Cardigans and an all-new rough and rowdy guitar sound. At times she almost had me wondering whether or not i was actually listening to the same Lauren Christy.Once past the initial shock though you may find that there are some pretty catchy songs on here, such as "Magazine", "25 back then" and "Boomerang bang", that the level of the songwriting is still well above average and that her lyrics are as original and intelligent as ever. This disc may take some trial runs before it starts to grow on you.Still, "Breed" will never be as near and dear to my heart as its captivating forerunner. I fervently hope that a third album will see Lauren Christy return to her roots and stop trying to blend in with the happening rock crowd."
Lauren Christy Should Breed!

"With such talent one can only hope Lauren Christy will "Breed" thus providing us ever more talent. This is an amazing CD. While I can only wonder why the sudden change in music style (see her preview album) I soon stopped questions Lauren's motives after I listened to the entire album and realized Lauren is offering more than just ear candy, but some brain candy as well. She offers a wide variety of styles in "Breed" - from the glam-enlightenment of 'Magazine' to the sad truth of relationship disillusionment of 'Burn' - I was thoroughly impressed with this artist and recommend her to everyone! Thanks, Anna!"
Great CD to listen to

"When I first head the song "I Want What I Want" during the carwash scene in "Wild Things", I just had to buy the CD. I bought the Wild Things soundtrack, but "I Want What I Want" wasn't on it but that was still a great album. I looked at the credits and saw this song was by Lauren Christy so I took my chance and bought the entire album since there wasn't a single. I am so glad I bought this album. It has the song I wanted and so much more! This a a great CD! All the songs are catchy with better lyrics than Britney Spears (even though I like her too). They should promote this album a little more, maybe even make a music video."
