What a CD! What a maverick performance!..dont let her ever get near Nashville..record company executives might find out that she really understands that traditional country sounds can be delivered in a new fresh and rocking way..that dont involve the santitized straight jacketed *pop* sounds of a Twain Hill or the like..it will cripple the country music establishment. Where did she come from?I hadnt heard of Neko Case before,I read a couple of reviews and bought this on impulse alone.If you are like me,and believe that country music can evolve from line dancing rural cringe and not end up like a production line of country pop divas,saying nothing more than dont leave me cos my dog died..this is your kind of CD,amen praise the Lord. Can you believe it!!!.. an intelligent emotional collection of gloriously rockin,twangy,heartfelt sensible songs sung by an ex drummer ex punk songstress with an exceptional set of pipes!!! Miss Case would have to be right up there with Shelby Lynn and Alison Moorer,as leading the way for the alternate fringe dwelling country movement that delivers interesting note worthy country for the mature adult. Every song on here is nothing if not an ambitous attempt to capture the history of country past,with a reverence to the style of Cline ,Jackson(Wanda)and dare I say it Springfield and Fitgerald(Ella)..and then it adds an adventureous touch of her own style. This Seattle songbird embarasses the Nashville phonys...big time!!!! Sure..there are flaws and there are some notes that are a little off..but I have no hestiation in saying that this CD is both an accessible bitter sweet melancholy journey and a feel good foot tapping delight...it is simply great!!

5.0 out of 5 stars some real nice modern honky tonk June 18, 2000
By Lanark
Format:Audio CD
You can't start to talk about Neko Case without first stating right out front that this lady has an incredible set of pipes. She can sing. It's like the best parts of Loretta Lynn mixed with the ballsier parts of Rose Maddox rolled into one package. I'm reminded of that Hank sr. quote about Rose and how she could sound like an angel one minute and like she just came out of a cathouse the next. Neko's got in spades. (She's to my ears just about the best country singer to come out of Canada since Hank Snow.) And this Cd showcases it all from torchsongs like "Twist the Knife" to barn burners like "Mood to Burn Bridges" (Althought the highlight for me is the incredibly sultry little "No Need To Cry") This isn't any of that prepackaged Nashville crud (I mean, if the Dixie Chicks sang the same but looked like Motorhead, do you think anybody'd listen?)or that too hip swing revivalist stuff in cowboy hats and shiny shirts. this is honky tonk. Music meant to be heard in a smokey bar with a glass of something in your hand. (having had that pleasure I can highly recommend it if she comes your way.)She sings it like she means it. Has an ace backing band (with Ron Sexsmith and the criminally under appreciated Evan Johns making appearances) and she just rocks. In a just world this woman would be a platinum selling star. See what you can do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Country-Pop Perfection May 5, 2006
By elisa
Format:Audio CD
The cover features a pic of a comatose Neko sprawled out on the gritty floor, red hair pooled around her, as if the victim of a dirty deed. The back features Neko looking guilty, crouching over the body of a knocked-out guy as she rifles through his wallet. Is it any wonder Nick Cave had her open for him on his 2002 North American tour?

Neko's music shares some similarities with Cave in its heartfelt intensity, haunting dark melodies, and occasional rip-roaring debauchery. They diverge at the line between soulful folk balladeer and soulful country pop, the difference between a Leonard Cohen-esque piano ballad and a twanging electric guitar. Neko's "Whip the Blankets" and "Mood to Burn Bridges" are countrified rockabilly rip-stompers. When she snaps "my mood to burn bridges is like my mood to dig ditches," you know you'd better not cross her for fear of ending up in one of those ditches. "South Tacoma Way" is a deeply heartfelt lament for a dead friend or partner that sounds too authentic not to be autobiographical. "Bought and Sold" is a loving but wry look at Neko's hometown of Tacoma, Washington, which has steadfastly resisted development and big-box stores for years. "God bless California, make way for the Wal-Mart," Neko sings, "I hope they don't find you, Tacoma."

Then there's her voice. With Loretta Lynn twang, Patsy Cline throb, and Dusty Springfield soul, Neko has a voice big enough to fill a canyon. The album opener, "Set Out Running," is the most soulful country song about trying to outrun heartbreak that I've ever heard. When Neko belts out, "The springs inside the mattress will cry my dirty secrets; I just can't shake this feeling that I'm nothing in your eyes," it stops my heart every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sweet Spot December 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Since Furnace Room Lullaby's release, Neko Case has released 4 other albums and countless collaborations and appearances (like her membership in The New Pornographers). This album represents a great moment in time when her music moved from old time country recreation (The Virginian, although a great album on its own) to a true development of her own influences from country's darker side along with her own talent for spinning tales from the Northwest. The songs are all steeped in longing and heartache in a way that echoes her influences without merely copying them. Standouts are 'Twist the Knife' and the soulful title track 'Furnace Room Lullaby' along with a heartbreaking song about the loss of her own on 'South Tacoma Way'. Definitely a must have album from her overall catalog!
