Sarit Hadad: Miss Music

Vivah Sarah Press writes in the Jerusalem Post:

Israel's self-described pop queen, Sarit Hadad is back with her thirteenth album. Boasting an all-star composer line-up including Zvika Pick, Henree, Yosi Gispin, Kobi Oz and Zeev Nehama, among others, Miss Music is meant to be an album of hits.

From the singles "Bayn Kol Habalagan" and "Bosem Zarfati" to "Hakahal Sheli" - a thank-you song to her fans - Hadad's songs are packaged and produced to a premium.

But Hadad - who hopes fans will start calling her "Miss Music" - goes overboard in places. Hadad includes her signature Middle Eastern beats as the background to her songs, and layers them with electronic and dance club tunes. Either in an effort to appease as many people as possible or to demonstrate her cosmopolitan appeal, Hadad throws in a couple of words in English and Spanish on the songs "Miss Music" and "Im Hapanim Le'maarav." While devoted fans will still enjoy the album, Hadad's offerings here aren't all that exceptional. Any distinctiveness she had on her previous albums is lost. Hadad and her production crew have clearly invested tremendous energy trying to make each of the album's 13 songs a hit, but too much tampering and fine-tuning ruined their chances.

While critics across the board have dismissed Miss Music as an artistic flop, there's no doubt Hadad's star will continue to shine. As usual with a Hadad album, it's as much about the presentation as it is about the content. The Miss Music album cover features Hadad in 16 poses - making it impossible to forget she's a star, whether one likes it or not.
