Review by Troy Johnson
October 2010

Sara Bareilles attacks the piano like a pestle and mortar, pounding pop songs out and adding original lyrics that turn frustration into music. In her much anticipated second studio album “Kaleidoscope Heart,” released this past September, Bareilles shows that she is not just the girl who recorded “Love Song” but a musician with a long career ahead of her.

Judging by her online following females are her predominant fan base but as far as mainstream pop music is concerned I feel not just comfortable but hip when I bump her tunes in front of other people.  “Machine Gun” is an instant hit with me even though it’s clearly from a female perspective. “Maybe nobody loved you when you were young/Maybe, boy, when you cry nobody ever comes.”  She has the ability to take sad ideas and lyrics and mix them with energetic music that you can dashboard drum to.

The album is produced by Neal Avron who is a musician that has made his way in the industry by making chart topping albums for bands such as Linkin’ Park, Fall Out Boy, Weezer, and Yellowcard. When listened to in its’ entirety it is difficult to predict which songs are going to be radio singles off of Kaleidoscope Heart. “King of Anything” is already getting a lot of play time on radio stations and is prototypical of her catchy style. She is also witty and full of meritorious quotes on her Facebook and twitter pages.

Bareilles is touring this fall and plays at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee on November 5, 2010.
