DELTA GOODREM – I HONESTLY LOVE YOU
Starring as Aussie icon Olivia NewtonJohn in a TV mini-series was simple not enough for diva Delta. She’s now hopelessly devoted a whole album to Livvy classics including Grease’s iconic You’re The One That I Want. First single, Physical, has Delts tackle ONJ’s spicy ode to getting down and dirty at the gym (remember the gay twist at the end of the original video?) Yet, Delts hasn’t updated the sound at all. In fact, the whole production on this album plays too safe, too close to karaoke. Perhaps that was the intention. If so, it was misguided. For a grittier Livvy, check out ’90s indie darling Juliana Hatfield who’s just released a tribute album of her own, Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John.
