5.0 out of 5 stars A different side of Norah Jones February 22, 2004
By Abby
Format:Audio CD
The latest album from Norah Jones, "Feels Like Home" shows us a different side of a singer who clearly has some diverse tastes. Where her debut "Come Away With Me" was reminiscent of Jazz singers like Billie Holiday and Rosemary Clooney, "Feels Like Home" has more of a Gillian Welch sound to it, a feeling that's only enhanced by Jones' duet with Dolly Parton on the bouncy track "Creepin' In".
But that doesn't make it any less spectacular. Jones' voice is still beautiful, her piano playing is lovely, and her backup musicians, The Handsome Band, are amazing. Fans of "Come Away" won't be disappointed, despite the change of style.
Something else that you see on "Home" that you didn't get before was more of Jones writing her own songs. Most of the tracks here are co-written, but Jones did write one track, "What Am I to you", herself. I will say that Jones is no lyrical genius, but the lyrics take a backseat to the still hauntingly beautiful instrumental work, especially on "Carnival Town", which has a nice string arrangement by the album's co-producer Arif Mardin.
So, to sum up: "Feels Like Home" is quite different from "Come Away with Me", but it's no less great. Jones maintains the casual, relaxed quality of her music, and leaves fans more than satisfied. I can't wait to see what she comes out with next. Judging from this album, she can continue experimenting with whatever style she wants, and she'll still produce a wonderful work of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious, seductive musical rapture... February 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I was in the bathroom of this quaint little fish market with a converted restaurant when I first heard Norah's voice. I remember standing around in that humid little red bathroom through almost 3 tracks (not exactly good protocol on a date) totally enraptured by the the "not quite raspy, not quite silk" quality of her voice, the seductive cadence in her rythm, and delicious instramental accompaniments.
I was an immediate fan and bought her CD the next day. Norah singlehandedly branded my entire summer of 2002 as "romantic" with her first major work.
So with nervous anticipation I had my first listen of this CD tonight, and without further ado, I'm so happy to report that "Feels Like Home" (in my opinion) is as good or better than "Come Away With Me". Thank you Norah!
From what I know of Norah Jones, she got her musical career really moving when she moved from Texas to New York City. I'm guessing here, but if I had to ascribe a dominant geographic influence to each album, I'd say Come Away "leans New York" while Feels Like Home seems rooted more in Texas. Perhaps that's why this new album is named what it is...?
The only song on this CD I didn't immediately love is "Creepin In". It moves fast, is definitively country (I'm fairly certain Dolly Parton is singing along, but I don't have the album cover), yet it's very catchy and fun (as testimony, I found myself humming it tonight in the shower).
Below is a list of songs that (if you love her past work) you'll immediately adore:

Sunrise: I got an advance listen to this track a couple of months ago and fell in love with it at first listen. I think it's one of the loveliest songs on the album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable music, but very questionable software installed February 21, 2004
By Slugg
Format:Audio CD
I bought the CD retail and brought it home, inserting it in my PC to play while I worked on the Mac.
Imagine my shock and anger when I discovered that by listening to this CD on my PC using Windows Media Player I had unwittingly installed Bandlink software on my hard-drive that was now collecting and attempting to communicate information on my music listening practices to Bandlink and other commercial entities via my internet connection.
I think that kind of software's called Spyware, isn't it?
When I e-mailed Bandlink to get the uninstall tool [it isn't provided with the Norah's CD that installed it], they tried to convince me that allowing them to collect information on what I listen to was in my own interest. How George Orwell is that?
While Norah Jones continues to create and record enjoyable music apparently with great artistic integrity, both she and Bluenote should be ashamed of themselves for associating themselves with Spyware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Norah Shows her Country side February 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
When first listening to norah jones' 2nd album, the first thing that struck me is that it's very different from her first, the celebrated "Come Away With Me". Come away with me was bluesy and mellow in a pensive sort of way. "Feels like home" has a much more upbeat, and (generally) more fast-paced tunes. As other reviewers noted, it is strongly country-influenced. This is not to belittle it, just to it's nothing like her other music. In fact, after 3 or 4 listenings, I'm enormously satisfied, and increasingly confident in Jones' ability to continue producing stellar albums.
The album opens with "Sunrise" which was released a little more than a month ago. This is one of the more catchy tunes, and I suppose it will be played on the radio a lot. It's definately a beauty, and is a kind of segue between her two albums.
Next is "What am I to you" which norah wrote herself. Again, this song will be another favorite with its enticing and powerful words and its awesome vocals.
"Carnival Town" is kind of creepy in its slow and sad tone. It creates the same depressing but beautiful ambience as in "One Flight Down" and "I've got to see you again". This tune is one of the most emotional on the album, and, again, is reminiscent of her first album.
"Be Here to Love Me" (Townes Van Zandt)is also also a high point. It is a very folk oriented song and has the characteristic "norah" appeal
My favorite song on the album is definitely "The Long Way Home". I believe it ranks among norah's best vocal performances, and has an incredible quality to it that truly makes it stand out.
Finally, I'd like to mention "Don't Miss you at All".
