Sara Bareilles - Kaleidoscope Heart

First and foremost, that might set a new B Side record for most confusing artist and album title spelling ever. At the very least, I'll vote it most likely to be misspelled. Regardless, this is a Suggestion Box entry from an anonymous person - and asked that I view the video for 'Uncharted' as well. I have since figured out who put this in the box, but I'll keep it unknown. Sara was born in 1979 in Eureka, California. After attending and finishing school at UCLA, Sara decided to play local clubs in the LA area to explore her music career. That was in 2003 and then shortly after in 2004 - she was noticed by Epic Records and signed a deal. And although that original drop didn't produce much thunder for her, the follow up record out in 2007 is certified platinum today. Mainly based on the single 'Love Song' which was a pretty huge iTunes seller. This now being the third studio release for Sara, so far getting pretty solid reviews from critics. Getting through this a couple times now this morning, I'd say it's fairly solid. I'd prefer if it was a little slower and more of a mood record than it is - as there are just a couple too many super uptempo songs for my taste. But getting to the video for 'Uncharted' - it's a pretty cool video. There are a TON, literally one metric ton of cameos in the video. I won't give all the names away, I'd encourage you to check out the video and see how many you can name. Let's just say there are a lot of other artists in the video - probably more than you can name. Give this one a go today, it might make your Friday turn into Friday night!
