CD : Tai Orratai - song jai mar klai chid

Tai Orratai's CD from the summer of 2006 and it's classic Tai. The title track starts us off with a typical slow and emotion packed tune with Tai's atmospheric vocals. "Yah kid yhung lhai" ups the tempo. Now Tai sometimes does struggle a bit with faster songs, this one isn't too bad and has a good rolling beat. "Bork jai yung ngai dee" is back to classic Tai. Starting off with guitar chords that head off to infinity and then into soaring slow vocals.

"Nang baeb ngarn boon" ups the tempo again and is one of the best songs on the CD. Tai's vocals struggle a bit in the verses but the chorus is glorious and the song roars along driven by a tasty horn section. Its the high point of the CD, after that it all becomes a bit anonymous. Songs like "Nah jor ror sai" for example are pretty good with their sparse but melodic tune and atmospheric vocals though not that memorable. The songs are often good on this CD but the CD as a whole isn't quite there. Don't let the unevenness put you off though, this is well worth having.

Rating : 8.1/10
