CD Reviews

Another criminally underrated singer/songwriter
Christopher Ingalls | Massachusetts | 04/15/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It's an all too common situation in the music business. Why are monumental bores like Celine Dion and Linkin Park flooding the charts when talented artists wallow in obscurity? Tanita is one of those obscure artists, and if the world were a fair place she'd be a household name. "The Cappuccino Songs" is her most recent release, available only as an import on these shores, but well worth the extra money. Tanita started releaseing albums in the late eighties. The first couple were of a folky, Suzanne Vega-like sound, but by the time of 1993's "Lovers in the City," she transformed her sound to a more cosmopolitan one. That album (hard to find, but grab it if you see it!) was a stirring mix of soul, folk, and eccentric orchestrations. This latest release is in the same vein, but a little simpler. Think Bjork meets Van Morrison. I know, it's a strange combination, but there's really nothing conventional about this extremely talented woman.She sings a lot about relationships, often with a sprinkle of euro-funk, tempered with acoustic guitars and piano. It's a unique mix and as you can tell by this review, rather difficult to describe. You have to hear it for yourself. For the budding musician, the enclosed lyric sheet even includes the song's chords. How cool is that? And if you like what you hear, check out her "Best of.""
Keep Listening!

"Tanita's first album was a big smash, and eventhough she continued to record, she wasn't on "spotlight". I admit that half the times I can't make out her lyrics. But with the addition of her music and husky voice, she does create a special mood. This disc was a pleasant surprise, optimistic more than usual eventhough the darkness of her lyrics. My favorite tracks are the first and last: stop listening (great, great, great)& I dont want to lose (the same). Worth a listen."
An ignored masterpiece
Jacques BENOIT | Paris FRANCE | 10/21/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tikaram's last (released) effort still continues to bewilder me, each time I listen to thses Cappuccino jewels. Not only this artist has developed a coherent career with the release of records any other singer-songwriter would be just happy to have written and composed, but after five majer CDs she at the tilme came back with what seems her ultimate masterpiece, that the critic vastly underrated or simply ignored. What seemed to be aimed as Tikaram's great "retour en force" has degenerated into a polite welcome back at best, fierce and unfair criticism sometimes, indifference mostly. This is not only unfair, this is a failure from the critics, and a mistake from the audience. It's still time to mend it, get this record and whether you're a Tikaram addict or not, I guarantee you'll ove every minute of it. Listen as priority to "Light up my world" and "I like this", two particularly brillant and moving gems among all the other pearls tha this album counts. You'll see, no wondr that if you"like this", this will certainly "light up your world" just as much as it did light mine"
