5.0 out of 5 stars Breath of Fresh Air August 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Eliza Doolittle's debut CD completely changed my opinion of the Jazz-Pop genre, which before I hardly knew existed. Armed with clever lyrics and a good set of pipes, Eliza's music career has definitely burst to life. The day after her album came out and after I listened to some song samples, I searched to find a site where I could buy her self-titled CD on the Internet--I live in the United States.

I cannot evaluate this CD as an addition to Pop-Jazz or Jazz-Pop, because I am entirely ignorant in the subject matter. What I do know, however, is that this CD is extremely well-produced and worth the import price! I can only hope Eliza's fame allows her to breach the US charts, inviting her onto our shores for a successful tour! With such fresh, lively music, an Eliza Doolittle show would definitely be stunning.

Get a hold of her CD, this girl's got it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can listen to the whole thing! January 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's one of those fantastic albums that is actually an album. You can put it on and just let it play from start to finish. Every song has something special and just hooks you. The music moves with an old school intensity and her voice just powers in the mix in all the right ways.

If you're on the fence, fall off and buy it, it's fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT British pop record...NOT JAZZ AT ALL!!! ;) October 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD
More like an English Feist or Nellie McKay, a tad Lily Allen (the artwork is similar to Lily's debut a sign to what's inside), also in the same ballfield as Paloma Faith, Kate Nash, Ellie Goulding, Florence & The Machine & Marina & The Diamonds.

NOT pop-JAZZ??!! Like HUH??? First I read the reviews then got the album and pictured Norah Jones...but nope, got a great sophisticated British girlpop record and I am very happy...looking forward to US gigs as the album is coming here in early 2011.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the Best April 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I'm one of the lucky ones who bought this album last summer when it was out overseas (how did I know about it? I'm also an artist with a video out on MTV, and one day while watching, her video for "Pack up" came on after mine, and I was hooked!) Just coming back from a show in LA at the El Rey Theater tonight and meeting Ms. Eliza, I'm excited that this album I've been living and breathing for so long is now out in the US for all to here. It is, by far, tops on every level: Her voice, the songwriting, the production, the lyrics, the hooks, the neo-retro throwback and sampling. Simply amazing, impeccable album! It would be my dream to go on tour with this lady. My own debut album is on amazon as "When I Don't Sleep.." but it pails compared to hers. Eliza has shown me how high the bar can be for an album, and I'm excited for the challenge to rise to that occasion :) Sinem Saniye

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good, But Not Great Pop-Jazz Album August 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The pop-jazz genre is hard to explain to people. Eliza Doolittle's self-titled album doesn't help that problem. Striking the right balance between pop and jazz is very hard to do, something I'd say only truly accomplished by Jamie Cullum's Twentysomething, and something Eliza Doolittle falls just short of.

There's no doubt throughout the album that Eliza can sing with the best of them (her voice is like a more "pop" version of norah jones) and it shows in a couple of different ways in some very different song types.

A lot of the songs are just plain fun. "Skinny Jeans", "Pack Up", and "Mr Medicine" all fall in this "fun" category, with catchy lyrics and a foot tapping beat, the kind of songs that could potentially get played on the radio. Beyond those songs, slower more jazzy songs like "Nobody" are just really good songs that also have well written lyrics but are more heartfelt jazzy songs.

This range of song type is also what's holding the Album back from greatness. There's no continuity. The songs vary so much between being pop and jazz that you find yourself either being a little annoyed at the very poppy songs, or bored by the very jazzy songs (which is strange because independently they are good songs). It's not much of a criticism, but it holds the album back from being truly great.

Despite this minor criticism, I would definitely recommend this album, especially for fans of Jamie Cullum (who Eliza tours with), Peter Cincotti, Norah Jones (if you handle a bit more of a pop-infused jazz) or anyone looking to get into the pop-jazz genre in general.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little late, but... April 5, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I'm a little late discovering this wonderful album, but better late than never. It's one of the best albums of the last decade, truly original. Catchy songs, wonderful arrangements, and a unique delivery by Eliza. Sadly, her latest is not as groundbreaking, just another attempt to catch on in the mainstream. Stick with this one, and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rainbows and Warmth November 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I crushed major on Eliza. She is bouncy and moody and full of life and soul. Perhaps too much so for American tastes but for me she is like the sun coming out from behind a rain cloud. Everything becomes rainbows and warmth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good album. August 25, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Most of the tracks are great -- very fun, upbeat pop stuff -- but two of the tracks, A Smokey Room and Police Car, are absolutely dreadful. Still, I would have to recommend this album. And make sure you get her second album, which is coming out in October of this year!
