A Fine Frenzy – ‘One Cell in the Sea’

Maybe the world doesn't have room for another sensitive piano-playing chanteuse, but it's going to have to open up some space for L.A.-based singer-songwriter Alison Sudol, who records under the moniker A Fine Frenzy.

Maybe the world doesn’t have room for another sensitive piano-playing chanteuse, but it’s going to have to open up some space for L.A.-based singer-songwriter Alison Sudol, who records under the moniker A Fine Frenzy. Her debut “One Cell in the Sea” is radio-friendly, piano-driven adult alternative fare sure to please fans of Sarah McLachlan and Keane.

Although the CD features some fine piano work from Sudol and a solid backing band, the real star here is Sudol’s haunting voice. Her wide range adds immeasurably to a song, even when the track itself has worn out its welcome.

The main problem with “One Cell” is its oppressive length. Fourteen tracks, most of which run past the five-minute mark, are just too much to take in, even in multiple listens. There are no main offenders, simply too many.
