MARY LAMBERT: HEART ON MY SLEEVE Review



A few quotes from Mary Lambert

“It’s a statement for me as an artist, but also a statement for me as a human being,” she continues. “I spent a lot of my life feeling really small and worthless, and to put out an album where I’ve gotten to say exactly what I want is gratifying beyond words. It’s a moment for me not to be a doormat anymore and to feel powerful and hopefully inspire that in other people in a way that's fun and makes people feel something. I think that's the message of the whole thing.”

"There is so much shame and guilt in our society, and I think it has deprived a lot of people from living fully. We're all facing battles. We've all had someone who has hurt us, so let's talk about it."

MarksvilleandMe reviews Mary Lambert: Heart on my Sleeve

One thing about being a blogger is that I often get to try out items that most people haven't seen yet, In this case it is listening to music that isn't out for the general public. Mary Lambert's Heart on my Sleeve was officially released October 14th, but I was finally able to listen to the whole album,  and Mary Lambert reminds me so much of my daughter Dennise. 

Dennise made up her mind this year that she doesn't care what other people think and she is going to be herself 100%. I am very proud of all of my children but each day she brings music to our lives, and I hope that one day I will be able to do a review of my daughters album right here for my readers.

My favorite Mary Lambert songs from Heart on my Sleeve are Secrets, My readers know from reading my blogs I don't hold much back, I just run out of time to keep everyone updated with everything that runs through my head on top of caring for my family. Below you can read what Mary Lambert says about Secrets.

Lambert also spells out her mission on the album’s first single, “Secrets,” which is to encourage vulnerability. Set to a buoyant pop melody and hand-claps, Lambert sings: "They tell us from the time we're young / To hide the things we don't like about ourselves / Inside ourselves / I'm not the only one / Who spent so long attempting to be someone else / Well I’m over it / I don't care if the world knows what my secrets are."
