You know how it is sometimes, you get something but don't quite appreciate it's brilliance immediately. It was like that with this CD, we got it a few months ago and liked it but didn't quite appreciate how good it is. So lets readdress the balance. This is Takkatan Cholada's second album and she is following in her labelmate Tai Orratai's footsteps squeezing every bit of emotion out of powerful loogthung songs.
I think Takkatan is a little better than Tai on faster paced tracks though like the wonderfully jolly Ji ruk ru ji lork and the bouncey Khon sode prajum concert with it's crowd noises. But where Takkatan really shines is on slow powerful songs like Plai tarng kong kwam kid tung and Mai chai fan tum taen mai dai. These songs show off Takkatan's amazing vocals to the max.
This is one of the contenders for CD of 2007 (or 2550 if you prefer.) Tracks 2 to 5 are one of the most amazing sequences of songs you will hear for a long time, and the rest of the album isn't bad either!
