I will give Bonnie Pink’s third album Evil & Flowers points for being a step up from her previous album… for the most part. It starts off a bit slow, but comes into it’s own after Your Butterfly. Still a little dull though, as the only tracks that have any real replay value to me are: He, Eve’s Apple and Quiet Life. I’m not saying the other tracks aren’t good in their own way, they just don’t really stick to me like those three and I wouldn’t pull this album up and play them. Evil & Flowers has a thoughtfulness that was very present in her earlier albums which is what got me interested in her in the first place, because her sound was moody, but in a simple and pleasant way. That’s the best way to describe this album; it’s easy on the ears, yet bland.

I know this is her second album and Blue Jam is her first album; despite it being so short and mini album length. ZARD’s first album is also mini album length, but unlike that one Blue Jam will not be reviewed until much later, gomen. OK, Heaven’s Kitchen is an interesting if not dull listen. It does however stand out a bit more than Blue Jam. Heaven’s Kitchen has a slow pace to it like Blue Jam, but the songs stick with you as oppose to her first album in which the only song I can really remember is Orange and vaguely Curious Baby. This, and Blue Jam are pretty much tied when it comes to least favorite album as her music gets much better and more memorable after these two (well Evil & Flowers was like a tiny step up). Heaven’s Kitchen as well as Blue Jam (I know I keep comparing them) play like pure lethargy, but this is a better kind of lethargy than the former, if that makes sense?
