Solo artist Dream has a knack for writing solid material that is downbeat and dramatic. She has enlisted players, particularly her guitarist, who deliver beautiful, dynamic support. On the downside, Dream herself is not blessed with a voice whose power, tone and resonance can bring her songs to the level that’s needed. As it stands, the production quality of the recordings, such as “Screaming In Silence” and “In The Air,” does no favors for her lead vocals, employs no tactics to prevent her voice from flatting and sometimes screeching. The briskly paced “Dream a Dream” is perhaps her best outing as a singer, but we advise Dreamto redirect her career objectives and place more focus on her songwriting talent.
