The exquisite "Opposite Island" is one of those songs that keeps beckoning back for another listen just to prove, again and again, that, yes indeed, it's as great as we think it is. Written and performed by pixie-ish L.A. songstress Jenny O., the track is part bedroom piano/pop simple (for anyone with a piano in their bedroom) and part stunning theatrical showstopper, a pin-drop quiet ballad that's transformed into what we've described earlier as "something beautiful beyond words." While Jenny's girlish vocal charms play up the song's tender lyrical confessions of "a long day" and "a bad night" leading to something hopeful, "Opposite Island" is a song that resonates as a deeply affecting modern pop standard.
