Tara Slone’s voice might sound familiar; she was the vocalist for Joydrop, the quasi-famous band behind the hits “Beautiful” and “Sometimes Wanna Die.”

Just Look Pretty and Sing is Slone’s solo debut and most of the songs are her own. She collaborated with Jordon Zadorozny, who is best known for working with Courtney Love.

Tara Slone knows how to rock; her vocals don’t disappoint.

Her voice is like a chameleon, changing noticeably on each song. The album’s cover track, “Suffragette City,” is as enjoyable as the rest. Stone’s “Wham, bam, thank you ma’am!” would certainly make David Bowie proud.

If the album has one low point, it’s the French version of her first single, “My Little Secret.” The translation sounds forced and the track seems pretentious and lame.

Overall, Just Look Pretty and Sing is an impressive debut likely to launch a successful solo career.
