Emmy Rossum's Sentimental Journey Album Review

Emmy Rossum's Album Sentimental Journey was just released on January 29, 2012.  I am a member of One2One Network and have been given the opportunity to review the album.  I have been listening to this album for the last few days.  Honestly I hadn't ever heard of Emmy Rossum before I was sent this CD to review.  I really enjoy her music.

On Sentimental Journey, the multi-talented actress and singer brings her stellar voice to songs popularized by some of the most beloved artists of the last century.   Emmy's 12 song passion project is an emotional musical journey with each song representing a month in the year.  This is an awesome idea to me and I really enjoy the sentiment.

"Each song needed to either lyrically or emotionally reflect the corresponding month," Emmy explained. "Some songs were obvious fits, like Summer Wind for June, and Pretty Paper for December. Others songs were less literal fits. I chose Nobody Knows You (When You're Down and Out) for September because, to me, the plaintive melody and lyric emotionally reflect the cold weather creeping in and the sense of melancholy we can get in the fall months." 

Rossum is also an acclaimed actress who currently stars in the Showtime series Shameless with William H. Macy. She also stars alongside Emma Thompson and Viola Davis in the upcoming feature film Beautiful Creatures, which hits theaters on February 13th.
