One eskimO

While I love staying in communication with the rest of the world via my blog, another favorite part of blogging is freebies!

I recently received a copy of One eskimO's self-titled debut album (in stores now) to review. I asked for hubby's opinion too, so here's a little of what each of us thought of the eleven tracks.

Hubby's first comment was that he was not fond of the synthetic drum beat in Hometime (the first track). Luckily it wasn't as big a deal to him for the rest of the cd. Having worked with a little bit of music and stuff with a friend who writes songs, he said he was surprised that as strong as they seemed with everything else, the synthetic drum just cheapened that song somewhat.

Personally, I enjoyed the cd. I had heard Kandi on the radio the week before (not surprising, since it was the Starbucks 'Pick of the Week' back in September, and spent 20 weeks on the New Artist chart). Besides Kandi, a few of my other favorites were Chosen One and Amazing (which I'd heard a week earlier on a digital mothers' day card).

If you haven't heard anything yet, check out this video from One eskimO's appearance on the Ellen show on March 17:

I'm been able to review the album now. I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more from One eskimO since their song Kandi has been licensed by the TV show BONES, and their Hometime song is featured in the 2008 Toyota Prius commercial!

Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
