    One2One Network Review

    Posted
    assia

    I received the cd from One2One Network .The debut album from One eskimO boasts pockets of quality from the opener 'Hometime' to the closer 'Amazing'. Probably one of the first band's to include not only one Eskimo, but a monkey, a giraffe and a guitar playing penguin. confused? Well me too. The songs possess simple, yet beautiful lyrics akin to William Fitzsimmons and the album production has the quality of a Tom McRae long player, yet the final product does not have any of the depressive overtones associated with both troubadours. One of the problems with the album is that it may either be described as a laid back offering suitable for the likes of a lazy afternoon on the beach or, as coffee table music which can pass you by before you know it. The first single to be lifted from the long player 'Hometime' is a laid back affair which has dreamy backing vocals and some mellow horn playing. One slightly confusing point is to why this was chosen as the debut single and not 'Kandi'. The third track on the album opens with a hypnotic acoustic guitar line along with some subtle percussion and an inoffensive call and answer vocal lines which immediately drag you into the song. I have to say that my only negative point to the album is that towards the end of the long player you sometimes get angry from thinking that some scallywag has switched your new laidback One eskimO album for a cheesy James Blunt placemat, particularly on track 'Chosen One'.

    One eskimO self titled One eskimO The music on this cd is breathy, laid back, simple, and sultry, all in one. The song Hometime, when I play it, freaks out one of my cats! She starts crying, then jumps around. The song Kandi, is my favorite. The first time I heard it, I thought it was a good song. Then I watched the season finale of the tv show Bones, and I fell in love with it! At the end of the show, it showed Bones & Sealy saying goodbye for a year. They looked into the others eyes, and you can hear the song in the background. You think that they will finally kiss, but they do not. I hit the dvr several times just to listen to the song, then realized I had heard it before. It was in my stereo waiting to e reviewed! And yes, I did receive the cd at no cost to review. So when you listen to the cd, play it a few times, and give it a chance! The band has been on the Ellen show, the song Hometime was in a Toyota commercial, and the song Kandi, is a #1 radio hit song! So I’m sure they will be around for a long time, and I look forward to hearing much more from them!

    Upbeat & Catchy - Beautiful Sound

    I had never heard of One eskimO before receiving a copy of the CD from One2One Network to review. I have to say that I fell in love with this CD and it is now one of my favorites. First of all, I love that they use a variety of instruments in their music. The use of these instruments makes each song beautifully unique and they have a sound that is different than anything I have heard recently. They also have mesmerizing vocals. Their songs each have a slightly different sound to them but all are very upbeat and catchy, begging you to play them again and again. I find myself singing and moving to them when listening and they remain in my head long after the CD has ended. I especially like the pop-rock sexy sound of "Kandi", which is my favorite. This cut has also been receiving a lot of airtime and attention in the media. I also like the softer sounds of "Hometime" and "Astronauts", as well as the groovy pop tracks "Givin Up" and "Chocolate". I definitely believe you should give this CD a try. You won't be disappointed.

    Creative, inspiring and unique

    I happened across this on accident via the One2One network. I must admit that One eskimO is not exactly what I would call your typical adult contemporary or easy listening album. Upon first hearing it was pleasantly surprised, being that generally I am not really a fan of this style of music. There is a cozy ambient feel to the entire album, leaving you somewhat dreamy as you listen. The acoustic guitar gives it a laid back folk feel and at times adds a somewhat fun element. Some of the songs seem to go on, leaving you hanging with no peak, even with all of the elements included in each song it somehow seems somewhat lacking in points. Strangely enough you are still left wanting more. Comparative in some ways to Dave Matthews, Tracy Chapman, and at times Dan Folgelberg, One eskimO offers something new and different to please your ears in a time when music is starting to all sound the same.

    Great CD

    I received a preview copy of One eskimO and after hearing the song Kandi being played on the radio, I was very excited for the opportunity. I have to say that even though I am familiar with and like Kandi, it turns out that it's not one of my favorites from this album. For one thing, I keep thinking it's two men singing. Besides that, there are echos of other songs and voices in this album which makes it very likable. Sometimes some parts of songs remind me of Genesis (in a good way, not outdated), some like John Mayer (without the crazy attitude and personality), some like other popular bands. Although I'm comparing parts of songs to others, the whole effect is unique and catchy. They are a great band and the CD remains in my car CD player (one of 6, so that's a coveted spot considering the 100s I have).

    This album should have been titled, "Amazing"

    For the first time in such a very long time I find myself completely enraptured with an album. One eskimO delivers what so few artists seem to be capable of doing - giving an original sound, and an ENTIRE album full of wonderful, meaningful songs (as opposed to the usual random good song, and then lots of filler ear pollution.) Each song has its own unique flavor, making it difficult to name a favorite song from the album. But if I absolutely had to pick a favorite song, it would be "Amazing." However, listen for yourself and you will see just how difficult a task this really is. All I can say is enjoy!!!

    One eskimO - great find!

    I had never really heard of One eskimO until I had the opportunity to review this album. Since I was going into this with no prior knowledge of the band or their music, I really didn't know what to expect. After listening to the entire album, I was pleasantly surprised - One eskimO has found a new fan in me. Although "Kandi" is probably the best-known song on the album, it was "Chosen One" that really hooked me. They have a beautiful sound that reminds me of Snow Patrol and James Blunt. One eskimO's sound is soothing, distinct, and almost sultry at times. I love it. Overall, this is a great CD - I definitely recommend it! (One2One Network provided me with a copy of this CD to listen to and review. I didn't receive any compensation to share my opinions.)

    Pleasantly Surprised

    Having never heard of One eskimO before, I wasn't sure what to expect. It generally takes a while for new music to grow on me. But, I have to say I was hooked after only one listen through of this CD. The music is very relaxing and calming. It almost reminds me of James Blunt. So, if you are a fan of him, you will definitely enjoy One eskimO. My favorite song is "All Balloons". I look forward to hearing more of their stuff on the radio. I only gave the CD 4 stars because I like upbeat music when I drive. Driving is when I most often listen to my music. As I said, this CD had more of a relaxing effect for me. (One 2 One Network provided me with a CD to review, but my thoughts and opinions are my own and uncompensated.)
