Even Closer (2002) is the second album of Goapele. It was produced after revising and enriching her first album, Closer (2001). Each track has its own character and posturing.
“Closer” combines sensuality, serenity and optimism. From the very first note it develops a balanced environment and brings us in contact with the inner calmness of the artist as a result of making a dream come true, quoting lyrics “Closer to my dreams” . It is indeed an ideal song in the sound of which one can bask in his felicity.
“Catch 22”, as the meaning of the phrase itself, develops unavoidable but sweet melancholy due to the restrictive particulars of such a situation. For the ones that have experienced a relevant condition it is easy to become part of the lyrics and fully participate mentally until the end of the song.
In general the album is easy listening and therefore optimum for a relaxing music experience.
