Deborah Jordan – The Light Album Review

June 7, 2009

Deborah Jordan’s solo album has been long awaited. Having appeared on albums by Silhouette Brown and Replife, to name a few, the demand for a full length project has finally been answered. The Light will be a favorite in your music players this summer because Deborah’s angelic voice comes accompanied by some of the best producers on the electronic music scene.
Although The Light contains many big name producers, Deborah’s voice is definitely the star on this album. On Breathe, Deborah’s jazzy voice is joined with a broken Bossa beat to transport you to far away exotic islands and later used to get you onto the dancefloor with the stacatto bounce of Let Go. There are few mistakes on The Light, however averaging at almost 5 minutes a song the tracks begin to feel monotonous at times and when the beats overshadow her vocals the album falls flat. The Light contains something for everyone though, offering everything from bossa and acoustic gems(One) to spacy delights. DJ Rahdu gives The Light 5.75 out of 7 Headnods.

Head Nod Scale
1=Don’t waste your time like I did mine.
2=Waste your time like I did mine but I dare you to disagree.
3=Well, there was the single.
4=If it were a hand in spades there’s “two and a possible”.
5=It’s a “good” album. Meaning at least 3 or 4 solid songs.
6=Really Good Project. Has the “Rewind Factor” more than once.
7=The number of completion. Great Album. Instant Classic.
