TOM ODELL – Songs From Another Love


Label: RCA Records/ITNO

Release Date: April 30, 2013

Rating: 8.5/10

Reviewed by: ToddStar

EP’s can be the easiest way to determine whether or not you would be interested in a full length release from certain artists.  “Another Love” opens the debut from this artist and the song, while mellow and contained, makes the most of the time and really opens the door for Odell.  The piano and vocal dance is well done and enhanced by other instruments, but the real magic is in the vocals and writing.  This is also true for the next track, “Can’t Pretend.”  This song features soaring music during the breakdowns and bridge.  The vocals pick up the tempo and energy a little during the breakdown and choruses.  “Sense” brings the tempo down a bit, but the song showcases the voice behind the vocalist.  The emotion is huge and carries this song.  The piano is simple and contained, but seems like more than it really is due to the vocals.  “Hold Me” opens with a cool piano riff and vocals that keep the energy up.  The band accompaniment is confused at first, but once the song hits its stride, the song crescendos into another track that demonstrates the diversity in the signer/songwriters abilities.  All I can say is bring on the full length.
