Esthero - Breath From Another
Esthero (of Reprise Records) formerly known as Jen-Bea Englishman jumped into music’s various genres with this album. She incorporates styles of soul, funk, jazz, rock, and hip hop, entangling her dazzling lyrics into the mix. The addition of her blissful and miraculous vocals assembles music unlike any other. Very original. It would be classified as Trip-Hop, and is similar to artists such as Sneaker Pimps, Bjork, Nelly Furtado, etc.
Growing up with the passion of music, Esthero worked her way up from sharing her lavish voice in bars and coffee houses, and merchandising for various bands, until she was recognized. Two years later Breath From Another debuted, and Esthero arose. After the album she gained recognition, becoming featured with artists such as Goodie Mob, DJ Krush, Black-Eyed Peas, Left-Eye, Sugar Ray, Zion 1 and The Grouch, Andre 3000, and many others.
Esthero is driven. This album was the start for her, and she did a very good job of composing it and making it veritable. Songs like Heaven Sent and Country Livin’ ( The World I Know), commence Breath From Another on the note of exquisite? I would say Esthero attacks the artistry of music from all aspects and in an exceptional way.

I'm not a big Esthero fan but this album was alright. There were a few decent tracks like the ones Lynzey mentions above but there is some filler too. Her newer album is crap though.
Nice review Lynzey!
