HomeMusicReview: Amy Correia Amy Correia “Carnival Love” (Capitol Records) If you’ve ever been (not been dragged) to a Lillith Fair show, youll probably dig this CD. If you havent, you might like it anyway. Singer/songwriter Amy Correia has a soulful, warbling voice that matches her quirky and somewhat strange view of the world. Correia falls somewhere between folk and pop singer, and the album accordingly alternates a bare, acoustic sound with a more orchestrated, radio-friendly aesthetic. Either way, Correia’s lyrics are the albums main attraction (her unique vocals are a close second). Her talents as a songwriter allow her to manage a variety of subjects equally well. For example, on the title track Correia chronicles the love lives of circus attractions, on Starfishin she whimsically wishes a lovers eye wouldn’t wander, and on the heartfelt Gin she examines the emptiness of the nightlife. Resist the temptation to dismiss Carnival Love as music by a chick for chicks, and buy a ticket for a strange but entertaining ride with Amy Correia. (Or you could get it for your sister- her birthdays coming up).
