Lips Decision is australian singer/songwriter Miranda Barber's debut album and was the second album to be financed and professionally produced via music investment website, Slicethepie. Once Miranda raised finance, 15,000 contracts (shares) were made available on the slicethepie trading exchange issued at £1.50. Miranda's contracts are now averaging just above £2 per contract after being featured in a blues review in rock 'n' reel magazine.
Miranda Barber has a very strong jazzy style to her music, mainly made up of solemn melodic piano and spicy sounding vocals. The dynamics musically of Lips Decision are very impressive at times in both the piano and the singing. And Miranda's sound and style is unmistakable and very distinct.
Beginning with The Num Num Song, a bit of a cheesy title, but the track proves to be the perfect introduction to the rest of the album. A lot of the songs are very calm, mellow and slow paced tracks with a strong emotional theme that touches you somewhere deep down inside. King Of The Island and Bad Man are two other tracks that come to mind.
The best tracks on the album for me though, are the more upbeat faster tempo songs such as Paprika Haze, Eliza and Too Damn Hard. These all have extremely catchy basslines and extra tuneful vocals and a fantastic authentic jazz sound. Although every track on the album is probably a masterpiece in itself, these are the songs that stand out the most for me. They are addictive and irresistable.
