5.0 out of 5 stars You Can See Bliss Too November 2, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
REVIEW by AVRIM TOPEL October 8, 2013

Album: I CAN SEE BLISS FROM HERE Artist: LILI ANEL

I had a flashback today, a real gift, the return of something very, very special. Until this afternoon, I had pretty much forgotten just how beneficial discovering new, great music can be for one's soul. But first, let me back up and set the stage before divulging this gemstone.

Growing up in the 60's, the release of a new record album, especially by a group or artist we followed, was like a religious experience. On the days new albums were released and available at our local record stores, we'd rush out, buy them, and rush home to let the music take us to new and exciting places. We'd study the album covers and liner notes with interest and intensity no text book ever came close to receiving. Indeed, it was one of the highlights of life back then. British Invasion groups like Chad & Jeremy. Rockers like Cream and the Kinks. Poppers like Herman's Hermits and Freddy and the Dreamers. Hendricks. Who in my generation can forget when stereo (and even quadrophonic) music first appeared with the Beatles and the Who? American artists like Simon & Garfunkle, Joni Mitchell, Dylan, and the Jefferson Airplane.

Albums allowed us to follow the lives of our favorite artists and kept us current with their latest creative endeavors. Albums gave us a snapshot of where an artist's work presently was. Often, albums had themes, sometimes intentionally, other times not; a unified body of work with a common denominator. Make no mistake, albums were the número uno venue to both experience our favorite artists, discover new artists, and learn about the gods behind the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lili Anel's Bliss! Best Album Yet!!! September 17, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
Words couldn't be said better than what was written in the liner notes of the CD and I agree 100%. So here it is:

I have been a fan of Lili Añel for years, but with I Can See Bliss From Here, her sixth recording, I have found a new, unexpected appreciation, amid an already multi-layered reverence for her music. Bliss is that album that every artist hopes for--Joni Mitchell's' Blue, Springsteen's Nebraska, the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's--the one that redefines them. This is Lili's breakthrough, a brilliant amalgam of first-rate vocalizing, songwriting, arrangement and production.
Añel, a New York-bred singer-songwriter now based in Philadelphia, was raised in Spanish Harlem soaking up the musical roots of her Cuban-African-American heritage. Professionally, she grew up in the same Greenwich Village circle as Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin and Lucinda Williams. But unlike those singer-songwriters, who had a distinct style that was easy to capitalize on, Añel's approach was more complex and therefore more difficult to categorize.

One set of ears would compare her to Joan Armatrading, another, Phoebe Snow. One listener would say Nina Simone, while another would hear Roberta Flack or Sade. Even comparisons to Paul Simon, one of her musical idols, are rightfully proffered. I can guarantee that if a listener heard the opening track, "Climb the Wall," without being told who the artist was, they might guess it was new, exciting work by Joni Mitchell.

Comparisons can be helpful; they are guideposts. But the truth is that Lili is not "the new Phoebe Snow" or "the next Sade." She is a unique original; a fusion of those familiar signposts, but a talent completely distinctive and matchless. (That said, wait'll you hear her channel Al Green in "Blindsided 2".

5.0 out of 5 stars So Happy! September 21, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
I just received Lili Anel's latest CD, I Can See Bliss From Here and I am so happy! I have been a fan of hers since I first heard Laughed Last on the radio back in the 90s. I have enjoyed listening to her grow over the years with each album release, but this one is completely knocking my socks off. I love the music and lyrics, but her rich, beautiful voice is what draws me back to her music again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a voice – and the production quality matches it. February 2, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Though I live in Philadelphia, I had never heard of singer/songwriter Anel (there’s a “wavy line” over the “n” but my PC won’t put it there. Her name is pronounced AN-yel), who left NYC for “the big Pretzel”, until last night, when she opened for another fine (and funny!) singer-songwriter, Vance Gilbert at a small “folk club”. I was sitting near the back of the long room (Gilbert has a big local following) and from the first sounds of Anel’s voice and acoustic guitar I knew this was something special. The sound system in the club is top-notch and I thought that Anel was right in front of me,; her voice crisp and clear and every note on the guitar was perfect. Her set was only 25-minutes but I got the CD to take home to listen. At 54 minutes, there’s twice as much music as Anel performed in the club and, with additional instrumentation (bass, piano, drums, B3 organ) the sound is fuller. But, even with these additional instruments, it is her voice and guitar that stand out front.

The songs are best described as jazz, often with a Latin tinge (especially the autobiographical “Something To Do”) and I guess most folks would compare her voice to Sade, Casandra Wilson – I want to say Nina Simone, but Anel’s voice is smoother. She wrote all but two of the songs and one of those (Ray LaMontange’s “This Love Is Over” ) gets a new life in Anel’s hands – oops!, I mean throat.

I want to again point out the “sonic quality” of this CD. Alan Silverman, who is listed on the album cover as the person responsible for the remastering, did a superb job. I will point out that miking of the guitar on “The Best Part Of Me” (a song Anel wrote for her son) is so clear that you will hear the squeals as she plucks the metal strings on her guitar.
