Melanie Doane is one of the names that i came across as i randomly
wandered through Amazon.com's music shop, following the references to
related artists that appear on the left side of each item page. A
number of reviews and some sound bytes persuaded me to take a chance
and order her CD through zShops. Having heard the album a couple of
times, i am pleased to say that she made me a believer.
"Adam's
rib" apparently is the second release by this Canadian
singer/songwriter, her 1997 debut being the oddly titled
"Shakespearean fish". Her style may be described as acoustic
based poprock with something of a country flavor, due to the prominent
role of her instrument of choice, the violin. Although the way she is
portrayed on the booklet's front and back cover suggests otherwise, i
found no mention of her playing guitar in the individual song
credits. Six-string duties are primarily performed by producer Rick
Neigher and one John Shanks. Melanie Doane features on vocals, violin,
piano and mandolin, while the keyboard end of affairs is handled by
Kevin Savigar. Their names sound only vaguely familiar, unlike those
of contributing guitarists Tommy Emmanuel and Tim Pierce.
Title
track "Adam's rib" is a perfect opener, with a refrain that
instantly nestled in my mind and stuck with me ever since. Melanie's
pleasant voice on this wonderful tune is supported by splendid harmony
vocals, deft violin chords and an excellent guitar solo. Although this
is my favorite song on the album, there is still plenty left to enjoy
on the 11 remaining tracks. All of which at least partially flowed
from her pen.

From the opening drum beats of the lead-off first single ("Adam's Rib"), Melanie Doane captures the listener's attention and never lets go throughout. Strong, mature, well-crafted lyrics combine with a rock influenced, acoustic roots feel to create one of the most well-rounded, underrated CDs released in 1998. The music here is simply stunning - creative, unique and a great pleasure to listen to - ALL the way through to the end. Stand out performances include the title track, "Happy Homemaker", "The Space Between Us", "Goliath" and "How You Cried". However, this CD is a must have because of the brilliantly crafted "Waiting For The Tide", a solid rock song driven by unique background music, wonderful lyrics and a great chorus. Upon first seeing Melanie live in 1994, it is an absolute joy to see her grow and receive some recognition (a Juno Award in 1999 for Best New Solo Artist) for her craft. Sony Music Canada - don't let her get away. Throw away Celine the powderpuff - Melanie is for real. This is one CD you will never regret buying and never tire of listening. Great job Mel.

Words cannot describe the kind of talent Melanie Doane has. To say that she is mystical would be a gross understatement. There's a power to her music that carries through each and every one of her songs. Adam's Rib was my first encounter with Melanie and I have since then been, without a doubt, hooked. After hearing this CD I was compelled to track down her other releases (Harvest Train, Shakespearean Fish and her most recent, Melvin Live) and each one is filled with the thorough, consistent quality of Adam's Rib. Now if only she'd play more US tour dates ...

I happened on "Adam's Rib" at the Tower Records lisening post in San Diego and decided to buy the record. Holy Moley!! This is such a cool CD!! Why is it not all over the radio?? Every song is so catchy and cool. Happy Homemaker is a smash, so is Adam's Rib. I tell all my friends about Melanie Doane and they think I'm nuts. Then I play the record and they all agree. My roomate is also hooked. It's like a cult or something!!! Anyway, I'm so glad to see other people digging Melanie Doane here too. - just buy the damn record and you'll thank me.

I happened to catch the title track for this album courtesy MuchMusic back in 1998 when it was first out in Canada...the video was intriguing...the song was even more intriguing. On the strength of the title track I hunted down the CD...I had to buy a second one because my wife constantly had the first copy in her car player...excellent stuff from start to finish. Sure, there's a temptation to compare her to Sarah McLachlan. Dio yourself a favor and forget for the time being that Sarah is as wildly successful as she's been and put the headphones on. This album is full of greatness...lyrically and musically. Melanie's violin and a silky smoothy voice make for a totally different experience than that of Sarah or any of the other female success stories from Canada. This album was released the following year in the US, and whoever was in charge of promoting it dropped the ball because by all rights Melanie Doane should have a Grammy collection to go with her Junos and East Coast Awards (she comes from Halifax). "There is No Beautiful", "Goliath", "Happy Homemaker", "Tell Me How You Cried", "Good Gifts", and any other song on this album...pure enjoyment. It's shameful this album never got its due in the US. Spend some time listening to Canadian radio and she's regarded as the star she is in her home country. After this album, pick up her latest, "You re What You Love," and if that doesn't convince you as well, get her "Melvin Live" CD and hear what Canadian audiences have known for almost a decade...that Melanie Doane is a Canadian treasure. BUY THE CD...you won't regret it.
