CD : Klin Patoomma กลิ่น ปทุมมา - poo chai khon raek

What a great debut this is, and one of the best albums of the year. Klin Patoomma's album is full of great songs with rich vocals and a great backing. Lukthung with a rock/pop edge is the order of the day but there is lots of real feeling in her vocals such as on the opening title track with it's big chorus and scorching guitar chords.


"Luem ai bor wai" is another slow-tempo lukthung song with rock flourishes, with superb vocals which cut through the electric noise in the background like a hot knife. One of the better songs of the last few months for sure. "Pen dai kae sai sorn" opens with some harmonica and some big guitar chords but is another passionate lukthung-rock number.

"Yark dai yark dai" is a very different song, a little faster and a lot more traditional in feel and instrumentation. No less good though, a very catchy song. Much of the album is like the following "Jai ar worn", big slow lukthung rock ballads. Read a few of my reviews and you know these kind of songs are my favourite so i have no hesitation in saying this album is absolutely fantastic.

Rating : 9.5/10

Favourite songs : Poo chai khon raek, Luem ai bor wai
