Hume,Darren: Lightning Woman

Darren Hume has created a story-based CD based on the Aboriginal myth of Bumerali (Lightning Woman). The sound on Lightning Woman is light pop in the vein of Saturday morning theme music to some kiddie show. There isn't any creative explosion going on here, with silly lyrics like "In The Pink Saloon Let's Raise Hell When The Sun Goes Down" being sung in a half-falsetto, the CD just can not be taken serious.

The album is loaded with catchy hooks and quick riffs, but the vocals are average and there is no depth to any of the musical themes. Some of the themes might stick in your head, but like a bad advertisement jingle you will wish they didn't. I give credit to Darren Hume for taking the time to create this vision. It just never really grabbed me.

My Score:

I agree with what Lucy said. I loved the album! I heard Darren playing at the local country festival and enjoyed his music so much I bought the album. I love the rockin beats and the fact that I can sing along to the lyrics. My favourite songs are Love Whispers, Pink Saloon and Proud Warrior - you will love it too if you just give it a chance!

I ENJOYED THE ROCK POP COUNTRY SONGS FULL OF FUN, AS LIFE IS TO SERIOUS THESE DAYS THE SONG GHOST PIANO I REALY LIKED I CAN JUST IMAGINE A GHOST SMOKING A CIGAR LONGING FOR HIS LOST LOVE. THESE SONGS ARE SORT OF LIKE DIRE STRAITS AND THE BEATLES MIXED .
