After awhile the album can become a little bit of a blur as the songs blend into each other quite well, but the songwriting is strong and the unique vocal sound and pleasantness of the songs give the album some kind of dimension that makes it no surprise the reception of the music is good all over the world.
There is definitely room to grow, expand, develop, etc. but Amy Macdonald’s pending breakthrough is a deserved one. “This Is The Life” is an album that is filled with promise. The songs are written and performed with care and feeling and without a doubt this young singer/songwriter will develop herself into one of the leading artists of the genre.
