What's the story?
New Zealand-born Natasha Bedingfield, just a step or two behind her older brother Daniel Bedingfield, seems to be taking the British pop music world by storm. Her debut album, UNWRITTEN, is filled with appealing, hook-filled pop tunes. Produced with loving care and performed with enough talent and passion to pull it off, the songs themselves don't have all that much to say, but they say it very well.
Is it any good?
The real star of Unwritten is a combination of Bedingfield's sweet, smooth delivery and the expertise of a skillful production team. Romantic and subtle, her ballads work as successfully as her energetic dance tunes, and will resonate especially with young girls thinking about all that love stuff for the first time. Natasha Bedingfield is definitely a bright new star, worth keeping an eye -- or making a wish -- on.
