NATALIE IMBRUGLIA / Left Of The Middle [1997]

With explosive success of the single "Torn", Australian actress Natalie Imbruglia cemented herself a spot in the alterna-pop music genre side by side with the likes of Garbage and Alanis Morissette.  The only problem is the rest of her 1997 debut album Left Of The Middle isn't very good.  I realize I'm not the target audience here but it's fairly easy to pick out uninspired songwriting.  There's a small handful of great tracks but for the most part it's just filler.  Imbruglia's got a bold voice complimented with beauty & brains so it's nice to hear her improve in her later albums.
