Eleni Mandell - Miracle of Five Review

by Ashleigh Hill

.
Five previous albums have more than earned Eleni Mandell a reputation of grandeur and Miracle of Five in no way waters down that accomplishment. Beginning with the faultless "Moonglow, Lamp Low", which holds just the slightest stitch of a Billie Holiday thread underneath the achy horns moaning through a "true love just like sugar in my coffee", Mandell only improves as Miracle of Five goes on.

Highlights include the short and sweet swaying interpretation of the typical self conscious feminine thought process with "Girls" in which Mandell slyly proclaims, "I am the pennies that come in handy", the likable pop of "Salt Truck", and the carousel effect of an amusing "Make-Out King".

"My Twin", a sultry, eerie four minute question of the future promotes a slight dance number from anyone choosing to listen and "Miss Me" mellows out the end of the recording in an immediately familiar yet original fashion. Others have managed to fit themselves as the sexy red dressed singer on stage in the back of a packed, dense nightclub, but Mandell does not just command the stage; from the silky bar to the smoky atmosphere, she is the entire room. Between her uncanny vocals and alluring instrumental compositions there's only enough room for a listener to sway back and forth, maybe raising their hands, definitely smiling.
