One eskimO review and giveaway! CLOSED


Introducing "One eskimo":
One eskimO is a critically-acclaimed English band. They currently have the #1 adult alternative song called 'Kandi' which you may have already heard since it's the most played song on all adult rock radio 4 weeks and counting. Billboard Magazine calls One eskimO's self-titled debut album "...catchy, ambient pop." and Los Angeles Times Magazine hails the song "Kandi" “a beautiful, aspirational track.”

The album release comes in tandem with a full length animated film. “Hometime”, one of the tracks that an animated short was first done with proved to be quite a sensation. It received numerous honors at film festivals around the world, as well as a 2008 British Animation Award.




Review:
I was asked if I would be interested in reviewing One eskimO's album. This was the first I had heard of One eskimO. After listening to some samples of their album, I knew I would become an instant fan. I waited anxiously for the full album, then it came. I loved the relaxing pop feel of One eskimO. This is a great soundtrack to listen to when wanting to be relaxed and calm. I have had it in my car cd player all week. The lead singer has one of those mesmerizing voices. He seems to whisper the words in parts, which I find very sexy. My top favorite songs on this sound track are "Kandi" and "Astronaut". However, the rest of the songs are nothing less than wonderful. The best part is this is an album my children can enjoy with me. It is appropriate for all ages.
