"Priceless"; Christina Gaudet
Christina Gaudet delivers a fabulous musical effort from wire to wire with her new release entitled "Priceless". Her clear and firey vocal performance commands attention, while it evokes excitement and amazement. Like her previous album "Wild Things", Christina captivates her listeners with an intoxicating formula created with passionately explosive vocals, exciting rock music compositions, great musicianship, and captivating recording production atmosphere.
The thirteen tracks of the album "Priceless", showcase a high octane performance from beginning to end; with only a slight downshift to an exhilarating high throttle groove in preparation for the song "A Million Years"; a wonderful ballad about a lasting love.
The album provides material for energetic dancing pleasure. "Girl Anthem" is created with an interesting arrangement and an infectious beat. "Look Here" is expected to thrill and encourage listeners to enjoy their dance experience. The song "Revolt" shows good song structure and is boosted with an earnest delivery provided by Christina's sparklingly clear voice.
Throughout this release, Christina's voice thrills, delights, and soars with mellifluous precision; as indicated by the title track "Priceless", and the song "Diamond Light".
The original music that Christina composed is infused with artistic precision and craftsmanship provided by a complement of musicians who exhibit technical aplomb and outstanding instrumental execution. Eric Johnson is an excellent drummer, who is ably supported by the remarkable Nate Stevens on bass. Effervescent guitar embellishment is provided by guests Trevor Sewell, George Varghese, and Dave Rockower. Stoking the fires of artistic excellence is John Zych on keyboards. The band provides a sterling example of tight spectacular musicianship.
Choosing a favorite song from this fresh and exciting collection is a difficult task. "Love Is Fire", and "Heart Of My Heart" evoked sensations of explosive delight and ecstatic pleasure seldom experienced in a work with so many tracks of original Rock/Pop song creations. It appears that the best thing to do is to play this collection again, to enjoy the splendor of Christina's clear, soaring, and enchanting voice with its passionate and sincere delivery; while also enjoying some great supporting rock musician expertise. Christina's work effort on this new release is spectacular and "Priceless".
