Who can forget the girl who gained fame on Youtube doing an acoustic cover of Rihanna's mega-hit Umbrella? Soon after, Marie Digby signed a record deal with Hollywood Records and released her debut album Unfold which debuted at #29 on the Billboard 200 with sales of 18, 000 in its first week. So far, Marie Digby has had moderate success and back with her sophomore album Breathing Underwater, she's back. Months before its release, however, the whole album was leaked onto the internet. The album-opener Daybreak is okay, and some tunes are rather catchy. But, you know, it's really kind of generic pop that doesn't really leave a deep impression. It's not teen-poppy thank goodness, and her voice has a magic sparkle to it. But I just wish she'd show more range with the album because I do believe she has that, but hasn't really showed it and has stuck to her generic pop sound her debut album sampled. The first single Avalanche is okay, but really, all the tracks sound the same and don't distinguish themselves from each other which isn't really good. Despite this, you have to admit she's gorgeous. She looks really good and the only gripe I have with this album is that she doesn't show enough range. Other than that, it departs from Hollywood Records' list of Disney artists like Miley Cyrus, Demi Livato, Emily Osment, Jonas Brothers etc. And I'm glad this album is more mature than the Disney teen artists.
