Several absolutely young but bright personalities have appeared on the stage – and Tina Karol’ is, certainly, one of them. It is even surprising how quickly she passed the way from the first public performance, the first video clip – to participation in the international competition of variety performers. But she did pass it – and, actually, her vocal makings deserve recognition. With music everything is also ok – but it is a somewhat different thing. What Tina Karol’ is doing now is pop music of the international level and appropriate quality. But I hope that it not forever – as with such voice as hers, it is also possible to sing with the same success folk songs, R'n'B, soul, and disco, and try and search for something in jazz. In general, qualitative pop music already contains various elements today, it is normal. But with such characteristics as those of Tina Karol’, I think, it would be rational to try more purposeful, precisely outlined experiments in various directions, styles. Having listened through the album, I suppose, you will also consider that such a bright start is just obliged to have not less bright continuation. The album is, by the way, in English. Not surprisingly – as it appeared right on the eve of Tina’s departure for participation in the Eurovision competition.
