Things Will Be Better: The Best Of David Broza
by David Broza
Released: Apr 2006
Label: Jewish Music Group
This Israeli superstar is kind of fascinating. He grew up in Israel, England and Spain, and his best-of CD is equally cosmopolitan -- covering Malo's low-rider classic "Suavecito" one minute, busting out flamenco chops or alt-country the next. It's a little much. But interestingly, his musical personality seems to shift depending on which language he's singing in, and when he sings in Hebrew, he becomes a truly skilled singer-songwriter. The entrancing "Srochim" and "Yihye Tov" are, together, worth the cost of admission.
