Hold tight EQ’s, I’m going to pour out or maybe that
should read – “paw” out this week’s Lady Gaga-alike / Madonna-alike /
Britney-alike from the inbox. Yep not a week goes by that a newbie artist or
two – both guys and gals present themselves to us and wave at us in our mail
box’s with mostly Lady Gaga stars in their eyes. For the most part I sit here

Track side, I do certainly have issues with the auto-tune
and the vocal leans in weak, but overriding these factors and my reasoning for

Eurythmics “Sweet Dreams” and Jace Everett’s “Bad Things” aka the True Blood
Theme song, is quite working for me.
The finished product here falls short of the mark for sure,
but it has the potential to be quite good if only the vocal lost some of that
cringe worthy auto-tune, because when Chelsea’s eau natural vocals briefly ring
