ANET ‘Talented Girl ’
(TB Records) (2004)

Anet has apparently been around as a recording artist since Allanah Myles released Black Velvet, although to be honest Iíd never heard of her before receiving this CD.

Thereís a similarity to fellow Canadian Alanis Morrisette at times,and even Avril Lavigne comes to mind at some points and she has a pleasant enough voice, but all too often the material itself isnít strong enough and is more like aural wallpaper than the catchy pop rock is sets out to be. In fact most of it sounds like it could be from a soundtrack to one of those American Ďthirty-somethingís playing teenagersí seriesí.

Iíd actually got to track 9, ĎI Explodeí before anything engaged me and none of the following songs stood out to me either and after repeated listens nothing else has.

Itís not as if this album is particularly bad, the production is smooth and clear and the instruments are well played, itís just that itís all so bland and you can actually forget that itís playing at times. It comes across as music for people who donít actually like music that much but feel they need to have something to justify their hugely expensive trendy micro system.

Anyone interested in buying this would be much better advised to go out and get a PJ Harvey album instead.

***** Out of this world | **** Pretty damn fine |
*** OK, approach with caution unless you are a fan |
** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
