Album: Amidst The Chaos
Release Date: April 5, 2019
Sara Bareilles has been one of my favorite songwriters since I first heard her hit "Love Song" back in 2007. Her ability to capture emotion in her words and music makes me want to be a better songwriter myself. In fact, her song "The Light" from the Kaleidoscope Heart album is one of my all time favorite songs, so when I saw she had a new album coming out I quickly pre-ordered it.
After the departure that was What's Inside: Songs from the Waitress, which was a Broadway play, I was looking forward to the return to form. While I enjoyed the last album, it wasn't really what I think of when I think of Sara Bareilles. Amidst the Choas is a wonderful return to that songwriting that I fell in love with, and the vinyl package is pretty cool.
