Editorial Reviews

Rachel Yamagata has reunited with Happenstance producer, John Alagia for her third album Chesapeake, the follow up to her heralded 2 CD Set Elephants...Teeth Sinking Into Heart.
Praised by critics for her intimately confessional songwriting and arrangements, Rachel released her last album, Elephants...Teeth Sinking Into Heart on Warner Bros. Records in October 2008. Entertainment Weekly called her delivery Gorgeous and Rolling Stone said her soulful, cigarette-scratched voice and melancholy lyrics recall Fiona Apple and PJ Harvey. She toured extensively in support of the album playing to crowds throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. Songs from the album appeared in various television programs and films including Gery s Anatomy, Private Practice, Brothers and Sisters and more. She also made an appearance in the season finale in 2009.

Yamagata emerged in 2005 when songs from Happenstance and her self titled debut EP turned up in such films and television shows as Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, In Her Shoes, Prime, How I Met Your Mother, Nip/Tuck, One Tree Hill, and The OC, on which she made a guest appearance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rachel's best December 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Chesapeake is, by far, the very best CD that Rachel Yamagata has issued. The songs reflect her continuing love of "heartbreak" subjects, but there is enough variation in the songs so that your interest is maintained, no matter what type of music you like. The second song on he album is entitled Starlight, and I believe, it is the very finest song Rachel has written to this day. I have listened to it repeatedly and find its cadence to be unique and spiritually uplifting.
Buy this album, you will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Al last her new record!! January 21, 2012
By Jose
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For someone who has been following Rachael Yamagata's solo career, Chesapeake has those lyrics and melodies that made her two previous records so memorable. She has a great talent to translate feelings and relationships into a song and this new effort is not different in that side. But this one has a lighter feel that mades it more accessible, not in a commercial way, but in a way it's easier to be in the mood to listen to it instead of her two other records. For listening from begining to end, this is her best.
If you already know Rachael, listen to Chesapeake and support her buying it, it'll be as worthy as always. If you don't know her, you are missing one hell of a talent.
Im'm eager to hear the two bonus tracks from the Uk edition (Heavyweight and It'll do).

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what needed to happen November 4, 2011
By Allen
Format:MP3 Music
Okay, we enjoyed Happenstance and dodged around the waters of Elephants but THIS is really what the RY fan has been waiting for - a much more approachable album that shows the range of talent, yet doesn't leave you wondering (too much).

I had the pleasure of hearing it live last week in Northampton, Mass., and both Rachael Yamagata and the exceptional band played most of the album and it is exquisite. The story behind the adventure of making this truly Indie record gives it the license for enjoyable listening. There's a definite degree of fun in the sound as well as the edge and the sultry depth.

This one is a winner and a keeper, whether in the car, home, or just chilling anywhere. The lyrics and songs are all solid here. And you'll want to play it more and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sort Of Hippie April 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rachel Yamagata has a very heartfelt and soulful voice which is perfectly reflected on this album. A specific song doesn't immediately come to mind, but it's a beautiful compilation of lazy carefree days at the beach staring at a far expanse of ocean. One of the best in the genre of folk music.

She has a very nice voice with such a smooth and soothing sound. Nice to listen to to relax or play as background sound at a party or gathering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to that Sound that we love about Rachael November 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have all her albums and while the previous release was good, I was happy to see her style of music to back to something a little closer to Happenstance. Right now, I'm listening heavily to the first 5 tracks (out of 10). I'm sure the other tracks will grow on me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous March 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you fell in love with Rachael when you heard her first album, this album is for you. If you've never heard of Rachael Yamagata, give her a try. This is a wonderful album and I love it more each time I listen to it.
