NO SUGAR COATING FOR KILLING HEIDI'S AUSSIE-POP

Abstract (Document Summary)

"Reflector" opens with the once-heard-hard-to-forget "Mascara." You hear a wall of sound - drums pounding, keyboard soaring, angry strikes across an electric six-string - then the uproar quells suddenly, as if you're stepping out of the edge of a fog, and there is [Ella Hooper]'s beautiful voice - a voice that has the sexiness of CBGB's- era Debbie Harry tempered with the power and passion of Patti Smith. If this musical change-up doesn't blow you away, you just don't like rock 'n' roll.

That's just the first 30 seconds of the first song of this 12- song disc. It gets even better. There's "A Jar Labeled Small" (part two to the Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit"); "Live Without It" (a twist on the Beatle-esque notion that all you need is love); and "Black Sheep" (a bright bucolic shuffle where Ella asks why a lover would be foolish enough to leave her).
