Emmy Rossum Sentimental Journey CD Review

As a member of the One2One Network, I was recently given the chance to review Emmy Rossum's CD, Sentimental Journey. 



Have you ever heard of Emmy Rossum before?

I didn't recognize the name at first but when I saw her face I remembered who she was. I had no idea that she not only acts but also sings!

If you watch the very popular show on Showtime called Shameless, starring William H. Macy and Justin Chatwin, then you probably recognize her.She was also in the movie The Day After Tomorrow and Poseidon. She's also starring alongside Emma Thompson and Viola Davis in the upcoming feature film, Beautiful Creatures, which will be in theaters February 13th (something I actually really want to see).  She was also a guest on Conan yesterday, will be on Chelsea Lately today, and will make an appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on February 6, 2013.



Well, anyway, she is pretty multi-talented. Her CD, Sentimental Journey, which was actually released today, is a collection of classic covers that takes us through songs from the 20s to the 60s. According to Emmy, she says,
"Each song needed to either lyrically or emotionally reflect the corresponding month...Some songs were obvious fits, like 'Summer Wind' for June and 'Pretty Paper' for December. Other songs were less literal fits. I chose 'Nobody Knows You (When You're Down and Out) for September because, to me, the plaintive melody and lyric emotionally reflect the cold weather creeping in and the sense of melancholy we can get in the fall months."
Emmy's twelve song 'passion project' is supposed to be an emotional musical journey, in which each song represents a month in the year.


Here is a list of the songs on her CD: (If you're into music from the 20s through 60s, you might recognize some of these songs and musicians. Each song is a cover sang by Emmy)

  1. Sentimental Journey (Les Brown, Ben Homer, Arthur Green)
  2. The Object of My Affection (Pinky Tomlin)
  3. I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover (Mort Dixon, Harry M. Woods)
  4. These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You) (Eric Maschwitz, Jack Strachey)
  5. (I'll Be With You) In Apple Blossom Time (Albert Von Tilzer)
  6. Summer Wind (Heinz Meier, Johnny Mercer)
  7. Many Tears Ago (Winfield Scott)
  8. All I Do Is Dream Of You (Nacio Herb Brown, Arthur Freed)
  9. Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out (Jimmy Cox)
  10. Autumn Leaves (Joseph Kosma, Jacques Prevert)
  11. Things (Bobby Darin)
  12. Pretty Paper (Willie Nelson)

My personal opinion of this CD?

I'm going to be completely honest with you all--the music is not the type of music that I normally listen to. Now don't get me wrong, she is really talented! I just normally listen to a completely different style of music. I did decide to give the CD a chance though, and I listened to every song. I even recognized a couple of the songs such as "I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover" and "All I Do is Dream of You". I think I heard them in a movie before?
The songs on this CD have a very slow, sappy, classic and romantic feel to them. I do think that there are a lot of people out there who would love to relax with a glass of wine and listen to these songs alone or with their significant other. Perhaps it would be good music to play at a wedding or even just on a romantic date?

Did any of the songs stand out to me?

Like I said before, I'm really not a huge fan of this type of music but for some reason, "Autumn Leaves" was a song that I couldn't get out of my head. It had really sweet lyrics and I like it.

If this sounds like something that you think you would enjoy listening to, you can purchase your own copy of her CD right here: Sentimental Journey

You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new!
