Review of Melissa Ehtheridge's CD - Breakdown

Melissa Etheridge*** Breakdown (Mercury) Since the unveiling of her debut album in 1988, Melissa Etheridge has sold more than 25 million recordings worldwide, won numerous auspicious awards and millions of fans with her performances. But the all the way “out” lesbian hasn’t had to tinker with her folk/ rock/pop sound to achieve this greatness, nor has her preference hindered her dynamic progress. Breakdown, her fifth work, showcases the singer’s sultry growl as did her four earlier discs. There’s not much new here: Etheridge’s proven recipe of mixing passion and compelling lyrics with perseverance speaks for itself.
