Perfect Day

by: Cascada

Perfect Day is Cascada's second album of 2007 (although Everytime We Touch was originally released in 2006) and it sounds like she thought she had found a winning formula. The opening track and Top Ten single "What Hurts the Most" begins as a ballad backed by an acoustic guitar for the first 40 seconds, with the only hint of the electro-pop to come being the reverb on Natalie Horler's vocal. But then the drum beat kicks in and indeed you have another Cascada album after all, with Europop electronic beats and the production of DJ Manian and Yanou at the fore, although Horler's voice is never dominated by the music. Avril Lavigne's "Sk8er Boy" and Pink's "Just Like a Pill" have all their inherent anger extracted, and the Cascada versions become pleasant tunes to dance to. As with her previous album, Perfect Day ends with a chillout version of the first single, subtitled "Yanou's Candlelight Mix." ~ Sharon Mawer
