One1even (one-eleven) has evidently not stopped to rest since the release of her debut album 'Pluto' in 2009. Her appropriately named sophomore album is a huge step from the first. One1even 2.0, so to speak, fills in the blanks left by the first album, and everything seems stronger- piano, complexity, songwriting, and especially the vocals. Although 'Sophomore' is certainly more eccentric than 'Pluto,' which is evident from the opening track, it has a more authentic feel to it- each song is filled with personality. 12 24 39 41 44 49 (The Fortune Cookie Song), for instance, was written out of an attempt by One1even to prove to herself she could write a song about anything (in this case, lucky numbers on the back of a fortune cookie.) She experiments with a wide range of styles: Dear Diary introduces a new bluesy sound, Qualified is reminiscent of some old rock-and-roll songs, and Love Has No Lyrics flaunts her piano abilities. Her lyrics are sincere and heartfelt, and will hit home with listeners, young and old. Above all, be sure that if you buy this album, you're prepared to walk around singing it, because every last one of the songs can and will get stuck in your head. That much hasn't changed. Whether you've never heard of One1even, or whether you know all the words to her first album, 'Sophomore' is definitely worth a listen. One1even has come out of her shell, making it so that this album marks not only the result of her sophomore year of high school, but also the triumphant return of an up-and-coming songwriter.
