Wanted (Fervent Records)
by Dara Maclean

FOR FANS OF: Plumb, Brooke Fraser
Rating: 3 Stars

Few pop artists are as diverse as Dara Maclean, whose new album, Wanted, shows off as many facets of her talent as her breakthrough 2011 debut, You Got My Attention. The title track starts out the album with a positive upbeat note reminiscent of Mandisa’s new hit “Overcomer.” “Blameless” keeps up a gospel feel, while “Love Is” sounds like a Brooke Fraser outtake. Elsewhere, Maclean shows off solid rock chops alongside tender ballads in a total package with something for everyone.
