Fortune Cookies

Lead Performer: Alana Davis; Producer (group): Elektra

Despite her warm, sensuous voice, this soulful singer-songwriter’s sophomore disc is equal parts groove and snooze. Her subtly funky, love-child tunes aim for emotional immediacy, but with their uniform moods and tempos, they end up being as ho-hum as a Lifetime movie. Still, Davis has promise: ”I Want You” succeeds as a palpable expression of desire, and the salvation-seeking ballad ”I Don’t Care” will make even Davis doubters give a darn.
