CD Review: Rachel Scott - Blow

Rachel Scott – Blow
2008, Townie Productions

Rachel Scott. Remember the name. She brings her own brand of blue-eyed hip-hop/R&B from Weymouth, England, and it’s worth taking a listen to. On Blow, her second album, Ms. Scott bounces back and forth between straightforward Hip-Hop/Rap to tuneful pop dance songs.

Some of the material here is absolutely infectious, such as Wish You Were Mine or Sugar Pot. These two songs for me are the absolute class of the album. Don’t Dream Away and Everything are also highlights. Rachel Scott is very talented as a singer, writer and producer, and highlights here skills in all three areas here. She uses strong melodies and pretty harmonies to bring out the sugar sweetness in the pop songs here. The Hip-Hop tunes are a little more generic, and the same level of energy doesn’t quite come through on these, but even these songs are an enjoyable listen.

Rachel Scott is an artist following her own muse. You may not appreciate every song depending on your tastes, but you’ll certainly appreciate the musical journey she takes you on. I give Blow a strong recommendation.

Rating: 3.5 Stars (Out of 5)
