[ALBUM REVIEW]Count On My Love – Tessanne Chin


FrontSo this is my first album review ever in my blog, hope I managed it good :p

Buat Kamu yang ngikutin kontes menyanyi, The Voice US, Season 5 tahun 2013 lalu, pasti masih ingat sama Tessanne Chin ini. Penyanyi asal Jamaica ini ada di #TeamAdam. Salah satu jagoan saya yang akhirnya berhasil keluar jadi pemenang, setelah mengalahkan rekan satu #TeamAdam nya, Will Champlin, dan dari #TeamXTina, si cantik Jacquie Lee. Thank God, Rekor menang tiga kali berturut-turut nya Blake Shelton bisa dihentikan oleh kemenangan Tessane Chin ini. Btw, yang mau dengan performance kontestan The Voice US Season 5 bisa tinggal cari di Youtube ya. 😀

Semalam, setelah beres tugas menjadi juri @Starvoices episode 3 “Audition”, di Twitter, saya ingat, kalau The Voice Season 7 akan dimulai 22 september nanti, dengan dua juri baru; Pharrel Willliams, Gwen Stefani, Menggantikan Usher dan Shakira (Usher berhasil menang dengan kontestannya, Josh Kaufman). Anyway, saya jadi penasaran, ingin dengerin album Tessane, dan akhirnya menemukan album Count On My Love ini.

Total ada 10 lagu, “Tumbling Down”, lagu yang ditulis oleh Ryan Tedder (One Republic) ini menjadi ‘hadiah’ atas kemenangannya di The Voice. Sangat kental terasa taste dari musik One Republic di lagu ini. Selanjutnya “Everything Reminds Me Of You” lagu abis putus, kalau saya bilang, mah.  Entah kenapa lagu ini mengingatkan saya akan ambience di lagu-lagunya Anggun C. Sasmi. Lain lagi di lagu “Count On My Love”, sangat Reggae, mungkin karena berasal dari Jamaica, jadi beberapa lagu dibuat dengan ciri khas seperti ini, misal, lagu “Always Tomorrow” dan “I Heart U”.

Track ke-5, “Lifeline”, dan Track ke-9, “People Change”. Nah, lagu seperti ini yang sebenarnya saya ingin dengar dari album Tessanne Chin. Power yang mumpuni, jadi ciri khas dia, seperti saat menyanyikan lagu “Try” nya PINK di kompetisi The Voice US. Di lagu “Heaven Knows”, Tessanne seperti menjelma menjadi Celine Dion, setidaknya menurut saya lagu ini memberi kesan begitu :p. Satu-satunya lagu yang ditulis Tessanne sendiri adalah, “One Step Closer”.

Favorit saya? Track #7. Best. Song!

“Loudest Silence”

I hate to feel like a stranger in my own house
Now saying words but my eyes are cursing you out
And youre no better cuz Im quite
And in my mind Im thinking that in youir mind you say : Go to hell!
And now Im just walking right by you fliping my hair
And youre just walking right by me …nothing
And when Im getting anywhere, anywhere at all
And the only sound of my house is coming out of these four walls
Is the loudest silence that I’ve ever heard
All the way not saying any word
But tension in the room, its cutting pretty deep
And Ill give anything I mean anything just to hear you talk to me
Talk to me, talk to me, baby, baby can you talk to me?
Talk to me, talk to me, baby, baby can you talk to me?
Cuz the loudest silence that Ive ever heard
And when not even speaking any words
If you already know baby know whats right
So we both just really keep quite to keep our pride
And youre too stuven to give in
But the funny thing is bout tommorow morning when we gonna be fine
But for now Im walking right by you fliping my hair
And youre just walking right by me … nothing
And when Im getting anywhere, anywhere at all
Cuz this elephant in this room its to hard to wait on
Is the loudest silence that Ive ever heard
All the way not saying any words
But tensiune in the room, its cutting pretty deep
And Ill give anything I mean anything just to hear you talk to me
Baby if you only knew, how bad I wanna talk to you
How I give anythingjust to give just to hear you say something
I just wanan work it out, I dont even really know are we fight back
Ooh Ill do anything to hear your voice baby
Talk to me, talk to me baby, baby can you talk to me
Talk to me, talk to me baby, baby can you talk to me
Cuz this is the loudes silence Ive heard
Cuz Im even speaking
