Amy Macdonald - This is the Life

We all have those albums that we listen to a couple of times and a couple of songs jump out at us and we find ourselves listening to just those songs and don't pay the rest of the album much attention. Well, usually that's for good reason cause the rest of the album doesn't catch us. Occasionally we miss out on the greatness of an album cause it doesn't catch us at first listen. Luckily, I decided to give this album a second and third listen before it disregarded the rest of it and I'm glad I did. What I found was a great album by a 19 year old Scottish singer/songwriter that'd be impressive even if she was 39 years old.

Her parents must have known that she was going to be something special when she taught herself how to play the guitar fueled with only the passion to write and play songs. That passion that drove her to teach herself how to play the guitar still shines through in her music.

Here's three great songs from the album:

Mr Rock & Roll - This was the first song that caught my attention from the album.

L.A. - This is the newest single.

Poison Prince - Her first single.

This extraordinary debut cd doesn't have a US release date yet, but it is available in the UK iTunes page with 3 exclusive bonus songs. I'm looking forward to hearing much more great music from this talented lady. I can see her becoming a huge critically-acclaimed worldwide star in the future. When that happens you can let everyone know that you were up on her way back in 2007...

I like Poison Prince the best of these. Though, I have to admit that I don't like hearing the word poison over and over no matter the context.
