Editorial Reviews

Authentic. That's the first word that springs to mind when you encounter Brandi Carlile. From her rootsy bell-clear voice to the palpable emotion that seeps through every song on her stunning debut album, everything about this 23-year-old from rural Washington state is the real deal. The album is a showcase for Carlile's expressive voice, which can turn from a tough, bluesy growl to a vulnerable, aching falsetto on a dime. The catch in her throat before she launches into those alpine high notes is reminiscent of her idol, country singer Patsy Cline. Red Ink. 2005.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Since the Sixties June 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I have not been as moved by a singer since the sixties, and I'm in my sixties. Brandi Carlile has a voice and a soul that could render any song fantastic. When people see this old dude with headphones in the airport or someplace they will probably think I'm listenting to Frank Sinatra or a self improvement mp3. Man, they don't even know. I recommend anything Brandi Carlile has for sale, and you gotta see her live.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful voice, addictive songs June 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I first saw Brandi Carlile open for Jamie Cullum at Town Hall in NYC. I'd never heard of her, and sometimes opening acts struggle to get the attention of the audience, but many people in the sophisticated crowd were digging her bigtime. I'd missed the intro so had to ask around for who this young woman was with the powerful voice, incredible range and emotional delivery. She knows how to get loud and when to get soft. I then saw her headline at an intimate show downtown (at the Bowery Bar), and she was both riveting and charming, with songs from this album and gutsy covers like "Folsom Prison Blues" and "The Times They Are A'Changing." The album is addictive--I can listen to it over and over again. I'm bummed that I don't have the bonus tracks. I'll probably try to download those somewhere rather than buy the album again. I love the way she phrases the lyrics, which read like poetry, sort of like a Leonard Cohen song: "Hold out I know you feel it getting cold out/Without the blanket for your soul now/Before you know it you'll be frozen/You have to see this through/There's no one here but you" is from "Follow." Speaking of Leonard Cohen, Brandi does a mean live version of "Hallelujah" (not as good as Jeff Buckley's, but then his is about as sublime as could be). Here's another sample from "Throw It All Away": "When you're near me I have no fear/When I'm untrue you see right through me/You know me as deep as the sea goes/Calm my head whenever the storm blows...This love branches out like an oak tree/Reach for the sky and roots to the sea/So when you're shaken down and broken/Find some peace of mind in knowing." I love the unusual, unexpected rhymes, like "broken" and "knowing" in those last two lines and "hold out" with "cold out" with "soul now" in the first quote. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't stop listening to it July 18, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I hope people don't start getting suspicious about all these glowing reviews from Brandi's home town. I'm really not a relative or friend of hers. In fact, I had never heard of Brandi Carlile until an article was written about her last week in the local paper. On a whim (and the fact that she looks adorable on the cover) I picked it up and was completely blown away by her amazing talent. She's a little bit Bonnie Raitt, a little bit Indigo Girls and a little bit KD Lang. But she's all original. Her voice is wonderful and listening to her gives you chills the first time you hear her. I just wish the CD were a little longer since I'm finding myself listening to it 2 or 3 times a day. I can't wait for more from this talented young lady. She's destined for stardom.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Debut January 16, 2007
By Buffy
Format:Audio CD
The entire album is good, but I'd give it five stars for the tracks "What Can I Say" and "Throw It All Away" alone. They are fantastic and unlike anything I've heard in a while. Brandi Carlile's music is an interesting mix of country, rock and folk that is very appealing and she has an outstanding voice. If you like Mindy Smith, Sarah McLachlan or even Jewel, and especially if you like all three of those artists, I highly recommend this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really, REALLY good October 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I got tired of all my music CDs and so I went looking for more. Assorted searches on Amazon and following the leads for "customers who bought this title also bought..." brought me to Brandi Carlile's CD. I'd never heard of her, and the cover photo was a bit misleading (when it arrived, my husband asked if I was now buying punk music), but I ordered this based on the snippets of song samples--they sounded like what I was looking for.

As another reviewer stated, I can't stop listening to it. I bought several female vocalist CDs in a period of about a week, but this is the music I always reach for. Every song is great on its own, and the more you hear them and get to know them, the better they get.

Buy this CD!

4.0 out of 5 stars On the rise February 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A strong debut. Clear voiced. I always appreciate substance over flash. Every song is a pleasant listen, but it is the songs that are a little more pared down--those that the record execs probably view as less-commercial--that showcase her range and talent. Would prefer more than 10 cuts/37 mins. But perhaps this is the most compelling point; the disc was over and I wasn't ready to be done listening to her. Recently, I had the opportunity to see/hear her in a small venue. She exceded my expectations.

Format:Audio CD
I recently bought BC's new album (The Story) and I liked it so much that I decided to buy this one too (the version with 2 'bonus tracks' - so, strictly speaking, this is not her first album). I think we all have artists, whose voices we find so appealing, that we will go out and buy almost any of their albums; for me, Brandi Carlile is one such artist. In fact, I suspect that if she made a recording of 'The Amazon Terms and Conditions of Sale', I'd probably buy this too - it's that bad (my addiction, NOT her voice, I should hasten to add). The superlatives accorded to 'The Story' (also reviewed) are no less applicable here, so I won't bother repeating myself; instead, I will concentrate on the differences between the two albums (at least, as I perceive them) :

'The Story' combines some songs which are fairly dramatic (sometimes climactic) with others that are gentler and which have a strong 'folksy/rootsy' flavour. By comparison, on 'Brandi Carlile', although these influences are also present, many of the song structures and melodies are more conventional (more 'mainstream'). I'd say the songs have slightly stronger melodies with 'hooks' which give them more of a 'pop feel'; on the other hand, they don't seem to have quite the same intensity ('Sixty Years On' being one obvious exception) - but I think this has more to do with the types of song rather than any lack of commitment by BC.

With the possible exception of a couple of songs, the overall mood on 'The Story' is moderately sombre and this is reinforced by the absence of any up-tempo songs; however, on 'Brandi Carlile, there is much more variety in mood and tempo.
