Magone’s dusky voice is still there, but I don’t remember her range being so stratospheric; she pegs the high notes effortlessly. At moments, her vocal acrobatics are reminiscent of Mariah Carey. Here’s hoping Magone’s newly found pop diva aesthetic will find its way on a full-length album.
Released by Bentley Records, “You’re the One” was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Sam Polizzi, and it’s a splendid departure to clouds unknown.
