Review: The Blessed Unrest by Sara Bareilles

The Blessed Unrest by Sara BareillesSara Bareilles’ The Blessed Unrest is full of tracks telling, no, commanding you to be brave. You don’t need to read the lyrics of “Brave” to know what’s going on. She demands self-confidence here, and promises you that everything will be all right, song by song. I’ve been following her since “Love Song” was released, which has some swagger – “I’m not gonna write you a love song ’cause you need one.” That one was more about love. Her next big single – “King of Anything”, from her follow-up Kaleidoscope World – basically asks you, who the hell are you to ask her what to do? That album is a transition record, leading to The Blessed Unrest‘s aiming for the weak-hearted. Sure, it lacks some variety – there’s a few upbeat tracks, save for “Brave” – but amazing transition, eh? [SY] | 4/5
