The first taste from Sissel's overripe album is here, at least in a promotional edition. And all said, it's become an adult, accessible and streamlined ballad which will rush onto all the sales lists. Great!
But is this all we can expect from the much heralded big album, from the extensive team around the country's perhaps most beautiful voice? How can it take so many years to find a sound which the Koreans found with "Hand in Hand" long before the Olympics in Seoul? The same sound which Celine Dion has reigned with for many years, and which Disney producers played with throughout the '90s?
"One Day" is a mixture of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" and Dion's "My Heart Will Go On." And the best that can be said is that vocalist Sissel holds up step for step with both of them. Sings better than either of them, perhaps. And don't be afraid, investors, there will be money made.
But in spite of Sissel's voice shining with quality, "One Day" doesn't leave any expectations of an attention-getting and creative album.
Actually, I'm quite surprised that the production team dares to clothe the voice, which could take over while Celine Dion has taken a break, in Dion's old clothes.
But as long as Sissel's priceless voice does what it does, we still wait patriotic and suspenseful for the rest of the album.
