★Review
This Canadian duo has achieved major success on the folk-pop circuit by simple means: nice melodies, tight harmonies, and a warm and approachable style. On their fifth album, however, that style starts getting dangerously close to gauzy — and if they aren't careful, they run the risk of becoming insubstantial. The problem isn't that their lyrics are shallow; their songs mostly deal with predictable subjects (first love, social cliques, romantic bemusement) but they do so fairly elegantly and at times they make artful use of genuinely startling and slippery imagery ("Virginia Woolf," "Peggy"). The problem is, first of all, that almost every song on Best Day is soporifically slow and quiet, and second, that both their sound and their songs' messages sometimes border on childishly simple: the slightly off-key piano that plinks around on "Lennon & McCartney," the junior-high yearbook philosophy of "Best Day," the stacked cliches and enervated Indigo Girls vibe of "Life on Earth." There are moments when this approach works very well (such as on the whisperingly lovely "Still Life") and there are moments when the energy level rises nicely (such as on the gently swinging "Great Escape"). But those moments are a bit too few and far between.

Dala,来自加拿大(安大略省)的女声二重唱,Sheila Carabine & Amanda Walther 高中音乐课上义结金兰组成 DALA。2005年夏天, 她们签约了著名的加拿大环球唱片,发行了首张专集“Angels and Thieves”。她俩浑然一体的嗓音定然让你动容,其在吉他和钢琴上的造诣也打响了自己独一无二的纯音乐品牌。在带来精神刺激的同时,也混杂了些黑色幽默,DALA借此赢得了整个加拿大的观众。-----摘自网络
