The worst thing about a hospital other than the constant fear of what may be lurking around each corner is the horrendous WiFi. You’d think one of the best places in the country for health care would have a better connection? That aside, I was in and out of listening to Anna Rose’s latest release, Strays in the Cut. A few words came to mind when listening; sensual, delicate and rock.
We’ll start with that last note. Right from the start I felt this was going to be a Lita Ford like record turned down a just a bit. Anna Rose delivered definite forces with “Force of Nature” as well as “Under Your Skin,” but that wasn’t all she had up her sleeve. That’s where “Bury Me Deep” came into play. A very sensual song that gave way to a whole other side of who Anna is as an artist, it was surprising at first after hearing that rocker side but a delight nevertheless. Then of course there’s that delicate touch. Heard when “Start a War” and “Natural Disaster” came around. With those, it was nice to just hear what Anna could do vocally without all the bells and whistles.
With the WiFi under control, and the waiting room settling, my time with Anna Rose has come to an end…for today. With that, fans that find themselves loving everyone from Lita Ford to Sheryl Crow will want to check out what Anna Rose is all about on her latest, Strays in the Cut, out now.
