"WAITING TO FLY" (Part II) -- Danielle has the ability to switch adopted influences with almost every changing song on "Elements". In the opening track “Caught In A Landslide”, she co-opts the lilting vibrato of Ronnie Spector, as she opens lyricly with the concern, “Too much illusion in the air.” She successfully layers her multi-registering voice behind, above, and below, weaving a nuanced, pleasing audial tapestry. “Got No Go” has an evocative tenderness that adopts a synthesis of beauty and pain with lyrics like, “Used to think that starry nights could make me shine.” It displays the melancholy effect of the conclusion of a mature mind resolving the anger of one’s youth. Both songs “Hold A Candle” and “Hurricane” curiously and separately deal with religious disillusionment and/or disengagement, made possible by the discovery of romantic love. While “Candle” adopts a jazzy, slight Sade sound, “Hurricane" brings us the grooved soul of Aretha. #
