The Artist I recently checked out the latest CD from singer/songwriter Molly Thomason entitled Beauty Queen. Thomason is from north of the border - Halifax, Nova Scotia.  


The band The playing abilities of Thomason & her band are pretty solid across the board. I would say they possess intermediate playing abilities & above average writing abilities. Timing seems to be spot on within the indie-alternative rock grooves. Thomason's voice is effective as she delivers many solid vocal performances that match the folk-pop style of music perfectly. The music Upbeat, funny, interesting, thought provoking, melodic, & highly entertaining. Musical textures reminiscent of Jewel, Nora Jones & Sara McLauglin. anything indie & fun. If you like those kinds of artists you will no doubt get a kick out of this CD. The songs Above average songs. Very simple yet effective, conservative, highly original, & passionate It strikes the prefect balance between alternative pop & just a dash of Indie folk. Thomason & company are clearly being themselves as songwriters & this is what comes out of the other end. My favorite song on the CD is "Herpes" Trust me on this one folks. The vibe Great vibe. Perfect for late night college parties, coffeehouses, or even magazine shops. The production delivers a lot of musical variety. Honorable mentions go out to amazing guitar & production virtuoso of Thomason. I give her high marks for not being afraid to let it all hang out musically. Thomason  not trying to be some popish artist striving for mass appeal – she’s just being herself. The CD refuses to try to hard – that’s what makes it so amazing The good Very likeable, marketable record – amazing songs, fun to listen to. The bad Nothing to report. The ugly Nothing to report.


The verdict Beauty Queen by Molly Thomason is a rock solid CD. The songwriting is clearly above average. The production gets it’s point across. Again  the most amazing thing about this CD is Thomason vocals & guitar playing. He’s clearly a premier talent. Fans of carefree Alternative-College Rock will love this CD no doubt.
