Hey guys, I just got Hayley's new album today and I think it's fantastic. She has such an amazing voice. It's like, just when you think she's gotten as good as she can get, she surprises the heck out of you.
The songs I like the most are, Abide with Me, Summer Rain, and one that stood out is Summer Fly. Not stood out like stood out in a bad way, just different. It's something I've never heard from Hayley before.
I think your choice of three songs from Celtic Treasue is pretty much spot on Kimmie. Hayley, I think, does one experimental track on each release. Pure brought us Wuthering Heights, Odyssey brought us I Say Grace, and of course we get Summer Fly from Celtic Treasure. Of the three I must say that Summer Fly is the most interesting in my opinion.
I might add that Hayley is only 19 - and her work load concerns me somewhat. Having said this, there are a lot of people who dont even take a singer of this kind of music seriously until they are 25. If she doesnt blow a vocal chord, there is the distinct possibility she could get a lot better.
Nothing in life is perfect - and I thank God for that. When we say that something is perfect we are also saying that there can be no growth because any change must be for the worse. In the end, it is our errors which declare and affirm our humanity.
Maybe it is because I am old, but as much as I have loved all of Hayley's CDs I think Celtic Treasure (or Treasure) is her best yet wwith the wide variety of music. I thank God everyday that I listen to her music (which is every day) that He has given us a wonderful young lady, with loving support from her family and her sharing this gift from God with all of us.
