Rachael Lampa
Human EP



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 7 tracks: 23 minutes, 5 seconds
Street Date: January 5, 2010


It's been over five years, but Rachael Lampa has finally released a new recording. Known for her incredible vocal talents and uplifting lyrics, Lampa delivers Human, an R&B tinged release that is truly Rachael Lampa. Unfortunately, it's only an EP, but this will definitely quench the thirst that fans have had for so long.

The album opens with the "Human Intro." It's a strange and unnecessary way to start off the album, especially since it is dark and the majority of the release is light-hearted. The first real song is "Loving You," a fantastic pop track that features easy-going acoustic guitar melodies. It's reminiscent of something Jordin Sparks would do, and would undoubtedly perform well at radio.

"Mr. Somebody Else" is a quirky, sassy addition to the EP that features Rachael telling off a boy about how much he has changed. The next song, "Avalanche," is easily the best on the album. The piano-driven base perfectly backs up Rachael's vocals that eventually build up into a peak of musical glory. It is a lot like Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love" or Rachael's own "Blessed."

"All the Way Down" is another guitar based pop song that is bouncy and fun. The chorus is extremely catchy. "Close to the Sun" is a mid-tempo contemporary song that is relaxing to listen to.

The album ends with the title track, an interesting and intriguing song that features Johnny Lang's smooth vocals that compliment Rachael beautifully. The lyrics are deep and reflective and make it a highlight on the album.

Overall, Human is a fantastic EP, I only wish that it was longer. Where are the finished demos that Rachael released on MySpace two years ago? "Summertime," "Look Up," and "Does It Have To Be Tonight" were all great songs that many people have been waiting for. Oh well, I guess we'll just have to be satisfied with this near-perfect pop release.
