Album Intro:

Katie擁有一種獨特的嗓音,如果硬要把她當成「英國版Norah Jones」,還不如說她更接近Eva Cassidy。多變化的歌聲和情緒起伏剛好和專輯要呈現的老藍調和Jazz調調的歌曲吻合,而她擅長的吉他也有莫大發揮,加上Mike Batt的多首創作,使得《Call Off The Search》原創味道濃厚,其中她翻唱英國藍調英雄John Mayall的64年經典曲〈Crawling Up A Hill〉流暢的演繹和歌聲的掌握都讓人驚艷不已;到了俏皮的〈My Aphrodisiac Is You〉,Katie又化身成一位柔媚歌姬,把Lyrics中的復古性感飆到極限,而不管是著名經典〈Learnin The Blues〉或是Randy Newman的曠世名曲〈I Think Its Going to Rain Today〉,Katie的版本同樣不遑多讓。當然,也有如首支單曲〈The Closest Thing To Crazy〉這般浪漫至性的戀曲,以少女的口吻娓娓道來,加上絃樂的編曲,那種舉棋不定的不安自然征服人心。我特別喜歡的是〈Blame It On The Moon〉,復古的感覺,如果搭配一個落寞的愛情電影畫面,會挺棒的;〈Tiger In The Night〉則有份清新的告白。

不過,要說整張專輯最讓人深深動容的加分歌曲,絕對由〈Faraway Voice〉拔得頭籌,這是Katie特別向偶像Eva Cassidy致敬所獨自創作的歌曲,從歌聲和風格都可聽出她受Eva影響至深,歌曲一開始的吟唱馬上讓人回想到Eva歌聲風采,那濃烈的想念靈魂叫人不忍卻也要堅強,也看到了一位年輕歌手怎樣朝偶像的步伐前進。

Are you over those hills?

Do you still hum the old melodies?

Do you wish people listened?

Over here with me...
