Positive reception for 'Brutal Romantic' album by Brooke Fraser

THE FOURTH album by New Zealand's critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Brooke Fraser, 'Brutal Romantic', released last November in Australasia and North America and now in Europe, has been getting enthusiastic reviews. Wrote JesusFreakHideout, "Lyrically, 'Brutal Romantic' contains some of the most challenging and encouraging lyrics for her listeners. It's this balance that warrants the album title 'Brutal Romantic'. 'Psychosocial' and 'Magical Machine' both provide thought-provoking observations about society's attachment to technology. 'Thunder', 'Start A War' and 'Brutal Romance' testify to the power our words can have, echoing Proverbs 18:21. 'Je Suis Pret' reminds us to be ready for when Christ returns." The project was produced by Fraser and David Kosten and was recorded at Kosten's West London studio. CR
