KAM (female) has been on stage in plays such as All Men Can't Be Dogs. Well, what do you think? Can all men be dogs? Errrm......Naaaa, I don't think they can be: dogs are dogs and men are men. KAM's voice projects well, I can understand her being used in staged plays, it has an edgy rock'n'roll quality to it - that Patti LaBelle has been an influence on her is easy to see. For the opening track KAM gives us her version of Maxi Priest's "I Just Wanna Be Close To You". I think it's true to say that all the elements for a good album are here, but the mix (and sometimes the playing) lets the CD down; it doesn't quite sit right. So much could have been done with the components of this recording; there's been some work at the recording stage but less at the latter stage. The kick and lower frequencies don't hit me like they should, yet the treble instruments poke out that bit too much. KAM is an interesting songwriter, her song "Hush And Stop Complaining" is funky and has an important message, however the playing lets the track down, it's not quite tight. "Gotta Say Thank You", again written by KAM, is a fine song. KAM has started the recording process of her career; I'm hopeful that future releases will iron things out. In the mean time I'm off for my walkies.
