The Music of Corneille

I had a chance to listen to a new CD a few weeks ago so I could tell you about this new artist, Corneille: And his CD--ahem, "album", The Birth of Cornelius.

I have to confess that I'm not a music-know-it-all. OK, I'm a music-know-nothing-at-all. I judge music based on one criteria-- do I like how this sounds? So when I read that Corneille's CD is "
smooth soul and acoustic-based R&B pop", I couldn't really explain to you what that means.

My take on it?
I would call it "easy on the ears". Hubs and I popped it in while riding in the car one day and it was great background music. It's not fast-paced at all (fast paced music usually makes this mom feel frantic!) and his songs tell stories, which I like my music to do. He's very passionate and has a very nice-sounding voice.

Hubby's more into the whos and whats of music than me and he says, "I really like it. It is a good easy listening album, and the words have a lot of meaning."

Alright, he didn't sound that much smarter than me, did he? Here I thought he was gonna share something oddly profound about this CD, The Birth of Cornelius!

Anyhow, we like it.

Exciting News! I have an autographed copy of Corneille's new CD,
The Birth of Cornelius, for one of you! Just leave me a comment and tell me what kind of music you like to listen to. I will choose a winner on Tuesday March 31!
