Tell Me The Story Again (Album)

 

Of course, ‘Tell Me The Story Again’ is not a record for everyone; quite traditional and heavily focused on its lyricism, it will find its core audience into dreamers and philosophers, offering perfect scenarios for deep thoughts and existential reckonings.

She moulds the songs in ways where you feel like you’re almost involved in its construction. It is light as a feather, yet feels heavier than a sword. It is true that the pen is mightier in this case, for feelings like this only come from the heart.

Räisänen osaa luoda näennäisen vähästä hurjan paljon, pienten painotuksen muutosten johdattaessa tarinoita kuin luonnostaan eteenpäin. Niin kappaleen sisällä kuin kokonaisuudessakin. Hieno uusi alku, joka ei liiaksi itseään selittele.

As the album was playing, continually rising in gravity and tone, I was wondering how on earth you go about finalising an epic, such as this. Well… there you have it, Jenny Räisänen comes out with the title track and blows all of my expectations out of the water. The song sums up the album; it’s bold, brave, human and full of endless emotion. ‘Tell Me The Story Again’ is unforgettable

The vocal prowess in this single is astounding. Though mainly consisting of three elements, these elements are so masterful that they form one cohesive sound, made solely to strengthen the vocal. It’s punchy, powerful and full of harmonies that will get your hair standing to attention.

Sending shivers down my arms, the creepiness of ‘A Bird’ pierces your heart and seeps into your soul. What I find intriguing is how the complexity of the song’s theme and sound falls within a simple acoustic package.

Tutta l'ambientazione ci riporta ad un nuovo feeling con la natura, un'esperienza quasi mistica, in cui anche noi, immersi nell'ascolto della voce di Jenny, possiamo sentirci come un uccello che sorvola il male in un pomeriggio malinconico all'imbrunire.

As for Jenny’s voice, it’s a work of wonder on its own. I’m a sucker for techniques…and Jenny has a lot of them. Jenny begins the song with a (seemingly) easy chest register singing in a low alto range. You can notice a distinctly dark colour in her voice, but she doesn’t overdo the darkness effect, on the contrary actually, she has a lot of open vowels and lightly sung closing notes that make a great transition and add to the emotional delivery.

To craft a song that’s equal parts folky/traditional and yet still poppy and accessible like this is a very delicate balance to achieve. Jenny’s music theory knowledge as well as her love for traditional Finnish folk sounds. I really love how she managed to reach that delicate balance with that particular sound…combining her vision and how she wanted the song to be with the elements that please the fans and listeners at the same time.

How she makes the lyrics come to life is a craft that was etched in her, how she is able to sing on such an instrumentation is something that cannot go unsaid.
