ULLMANN - BLOODSUCKER
three-track EP shows potential; Ullmann seems to have a decent
song writing ability and a solid set of pipes. But she’s
badly let down by some rather lacklustre production that stops
lead track Bloodsucker from reaching
the heights it’s aiming for. It feels rather like a demo
than a finished track, and so doesn’t achieve the Avril
Lavigne pop rock sound it needs.
No Good Perfection is a slower and better
song, a decent slice of AOR that perhaps lacks any stand-out elements,
and again is marred by the flat, muddy sound – as is Cry
Alone, a potentially commercial song that is effectively
wrecked by the terrible sound, which allows the backing track
to coagulate into a thorough mess.
Ullmann has definite talent, but really needs to work with someone
who knows how to mix a record. If this is treated as a demo, she
might yet make it, but as a stand-alone release, it doesn’t
quite cut it.
