Editorial Reviews

Instead of opting for the full-on pop diva route, Cole travels a far more interesting path towards the mainstream that picks up on the vapor trails of "I Can See Clearly Now" and her album of Waits covers. "I've Just Seen a Face" retains echoes of its signature melody, but is otherwise a smart reinvention, and Sheryl Crow's "You Want More" or the slinky Aaron Davis cowrite "Timbuktu" make fine follow-ups. Larry Klein's spartan production shines in particular on the title track. --Jeff Bateman

4.0 out of 5 stars Music with sincerity, depth and great jazz roots September 25, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It took A LOT of doing, but I first heard "Make It Go Away" on a CBS television show. But tracking it down was worth it because the Cd "Dark Dear Heart" is pretty different from any other I own. If you like Diana Krall, Indigo Girls, Shawn Colvin, you will like Holly Cole. I really recommend this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Holly Cole's most accessible work to date! August 31, 2001
Format:Audio CD
From first listening, this album is immediately likeable. Her treatment of Lennon/McCartney's "Norwegian Wood" not only covers it, but redefines it. To many, though, the highpoint of the album is "Make It Go Away" (which was aired on the TV series "Due South", on which she made appearances as a club singer). Each of the titles on this album are excellently executed, giving a balance between the instrumentation, arrangement and Ms. Cole's voice. If you are going to buy one album by Holly Cole, this should be the one. You will NOT be disappointed! (Of course, "Temptation" runs a very, very close second, especially if you appreciate the songs of Tom Waits!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Diverse singer comes full circle December 13, 1998
Format:Audio CD
After years of turning standards inside out and singing the hell out of pop tunes with a jazzy angle, Holly Cole releases an all-out pop release with dark, dear results.
The overall feel is "moody" fitting that Holly recently said in an interview that her favorite color is "dark." Songs like the country-tinged "Dark Dear Heart" and the Sade-esque "Hold On" are intense, consuming listens that boast stellar musicianship and Holly's specialty, an understated vocal. You can still be dark and have rhythm, though, as she proves on the Sheryl Crow-penned "You Want More" and the slinky, David Piltch co-write gem "World Seems to Come and Go." These standouts, while still midtempo, have rhythms that inspire toe-tapping without compromising any of the emotion and depth Holly brings to all of her performances.
"Make it Go Away" is a gorgeous ballad perfectly suited to her voice, and "Onion Girl" is one of the finest pop/rock ballads of recent years; the latter's success as a single should have been no surprise to anyone. But where are those covers Holly is so well known for...the kind that are so personalized, you often don't even recognize them at first? The Beatles' "I've Just Seen a Face" and Joni Mitchell's "River" are ordained into Cole's realm of classics given freah new leases on life, not only two of Holly's strongest renditions but two of the finest remakes ever. That she is able to take classic songs by such high-profile acts as the Fab Four and Mitchell prove what a gifted interpreter she is.
Some fans were up in arms at this album's release, longing for the days when Holly sung 98% jazz standards and wore strapless gowns with evening gloves.

A lovely pop album! Her cover of Joni Mitchell's "River" bests the original! A bit of a departure from some of her jazz-y work with the Holly Cole Trio, "Dark Dear Heart" is a remarkable effort. The choice of material probably doesn't give afford her the best possible showcase for her voice, but this disc will make you hungry for more of her work, past and future.

5.0 out of 5 stars She Makes it Better September 8, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Holly Cole's voice and words went straight through me. I never knew she existed and was introduced to the CD when traveling in a country far from home. I made love that wasn't love to this music, but it made it better. Her emotional voice and deep understanding of the songs indeed make her versions in several cases better than the originals. She doesn't have to choose between jazz and pop. She can just come in and softly claim space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holly Cole at her very best December 26, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I love Holly's adventurous entry into the pop music world. The choice of songs is excelent and she performs them flawlessly. The Beatles cover is superb. "Make it Go Away" is simply astounding and "Onion Girl" is one of my all time faves. Holly?s version of the Joni Mitchell's classic "River" is so heartfelt. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! June 24, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I love Holly Cole and her music is great! I love the second song on this CD, "Make It Go Away". It's so good, most of the songs are so dark and so moody, and such a good quiet listen while you are reading or something. I really enjoyed this cd, and I'm glad I purchased it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The River alone is worth the price of admission! November 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
So haunting are Cole's interpretive renderings that you're certain you've never heard the songs any other way. Both Joni Mitchell and The Beatles would surely find nothing to quibble over. Cole's sad and wistful little girl personae reins supreme here. The plaintive tone reverberates and reinvents the ballads.
