Priscilla Ahn has finally released her first full length album on Blue Note: A Good Day.  I am really quite happy to see her succeed, she has worked hard the last couple of years playing at the Hotel Cafe in LA basically every weekend, and sleeping on friend’s couches while touring with Joshua Radin.  Somehow I just have a lot of respect for her and her voice is really something that should be heard, it is quite beautiful.

The album has some really lovely new tracks on it, A Good Day (Morning Song) along with Masters In China are really the stars of the album for me, but the lyrics are lacking substance and it is funny because her voice is so angelic that I want there be depth so badly.  The substance will come though as her music continues to progress.  It is going to take some more life experience and getting in touch with her “being”. And I don’t want to sound all intellectually snobby about this but basically she talks about leaving the light on because she is scared of the dark… Hello?  I feel like she can do better than that and I hope so much that she will.  I look forward to it.

    i have noticed that with her lyrics too. very on the surface. needs to go deeper. i have her EP. it actually caught my eye because of the cover art-if you have it and look at it-it is SO me. and i liked her voice.

    i LOVE “a good day”
    what a sweet song to get your mood in a different place. sweet sweet sweet.

    Yeah her EP does have some attractive cover art I agree and as you can see she included Dream on her full length.

    I liked these two anyway. Again, as most people here know I’m biased since she’s my girlfriend.

    don’t judge the depth of the ocean by sight. her lyrics sink deeper than some will perceive. they can mean different things to different people.

    I hear what you are saying Alonis and you can certainly interpret her lyrics differently. I just still was hoping for more on this album…
