CD Reviews

A very unique and wonderful talent
J. Lund | 11/13/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bic has a lot of gumption putting a spare, acoustic ballad as the opening track of this album (usually these songs go at the end of an album), but it really works in this instance. Why? Because the song simply shows off her incredible singing and songwriting talent. 'When I See You Smile'--the tune in question--is a gorgeous love song and serves notice that Bic is a musician to be reckoned with. From that point on, the album moves through several decades worth of pop--some 70's inspired songs, an elecontric-tinged up-tempo tune, a country waltz, and a few more ballads. She does it all with style and aplomb.Ignore this woman at your peril. She is amazing!"

"Bic Rungas 2nd album "Beautiful Collison", one of the highest selling albums in New Zealands music history, over 9 X platinum, is a very beautiful album. It definitley is a Norah Jones-ey album, but not hard out JAZZ, she is a very good songwriter, and the music makes me feel happy-ish. But the songs you really have to look out for on this 9 X platinum album...
When I See You Smile
Get Some Sleep
Something Good
Honest Goodbyes
She Left On A Monday
So I reccomend this album to anyone who wants to find a different spin on Norah Jones who has been out W A Y longer.
Try It Out!"

"The latest album by Bic Runga a New Zealand born Maori is a classic example of good music that penetrates the ear with facility, quitting the memory with difficulty. The album is entitled 'Beautiful Collision', which sums up its eloquence and grace in bringing catchy tunes together with tranquil rhythms. The first single from the album 'Get some sleep' encapsulates this format.In the same league as artists such as Dido and Norah Jones, Bic offers a refreshingly eclectic type of music. Songs such as 'Precious things' and 'The be all and end all' illuminate her origionality. One cannot doubt the talents of an artist who can sing, play the harmonica, piano and guitar. Bic also collabrated on this album with Crowded House singer Neil Finn.For a night of relxation or morning of inspiration, this album could allure even the most unfavourable ear. We've seen a surge in instrument playing, melody singing female artists lately. Although this might not be a die hard Iron Maiden fans cup of tea, it offers a twist to a growing type of artist.Not in trend with traditional Maori music, Bic has stamped her mark on the term good music, and justified her name in that bracket. A great follow up to 'Drive' her previous album, a romantic and creative advance can be heard. If you plan on taking a rain check on a clubbing night this week, purchase this CD for a chilled session. For summer evenings or winter nights, you won't be disappointed!"
