CD REVIEW: Spring (self-titled CD)

Artist: Spring Genre: Pop CD Review: She might just have one name, but she's got enough talent for 3. From the first strains of electric guitar and Spring singing 'a dog walks, a cat talks', I think you'll be hooked. I like the backing vocals on this one.
'Dazed' paints a good musical portrait. I dig the music and vocal arrangements much more than the simple love lyrics. Says in the cd booklet that all guitars are by J. J. McGeeham, which is pretty impressive.
Spring has an individual voice that is pretty grown-up in what it's accomplished, yet it has that innocent tinge which is bound to have men swooning as quickly as Jewel in a mini-skirt.
The songs are strong. I especially like the upbeat stuff. Why? I don't know. Let's say it provokes an emotional response in me that says - hey. This girl rocks with long, clanging flints. 'Downtown' tells you right where to get off.
By the way, she also thoughtfully included a video of a couple music videos of 2 songs on the cd. Nicely done. Exciting, though I'm not sure if I'll see them on MTV because they don't have the budget of Titanic. But it's great to see the girl in action, and sound.
