5.0 out of 5 stars Great Music Period September 14, 2010
By micdus
Format:Audio CD
Grace Potter & The Nocturnals have crafted a truly thrilling album. The tracks that rock--"Paris (Ooh La La)," "Medicine," "Only Love," and "Hot Summer Night"--do it like an earthquake. Potter may be working a sparkly skirt but her musical heft is all muscle shirt, jeans and big nasty boots. Thus, proving that what you wear ain't the point. This is music that is genuine, tight and has just enough grit to make cries of "slick" confounding. The band maintains equal fire power on quieter numbers like "Colors" and the stunning "Things I Never Needed." Perhaps my favorite track is "One Short Night" which combines a sexy mixture of rock and soul in a way that gets me grooving no matter where I'm at when I hear it. This is an album that is good from start to finish because it is filled with songs that have both structure and passion. These tracks come to rock and conquer and they succeed on every level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Screw the purist "fans" December 19, 2010
By tooblue
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If there is one thing I can't stand it is a purist music snob. Someone who is so stuck on their own wants and expectations they don't let the artist do what they want to do with their own lives/ careers. This is a great album. It has great songs with great lyrics and powerful vocals. I personally commend any artist who tries something different. Who gives a crap if the artist is going for mass appeal. You people wining about the "overproduction" are the same ones wining that there is nothing on the radio worth listening to. Forget you. This cd freaking rocks. The first track, Paris, is sexy as hell. Oasis has beautiful lyrics and a cool vibe. I say Kudos for trying a different direction. I love her early stuff and I love this CD just as much. Buy it. If you like power vocals with power guitar you'll love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't hesitate. September 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Been following GPN for a few years now and have heard many of these songs live time and time again. SO thankful that everyone who may not have heard of this amazing group of talent now has the opportunity to get an album that arguably the best of the year. The band combines strong guitar, voice, and lyrics to create a sound that is unmatchable and straight up awesome. If you are thinking about it, or even reading these reviews...think no more and purchase this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grace Rocks! February 5, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Gawd knows I luv the Blues, but I really like her new album. I own everything this woman has done and she hasn't diappointed me yet. The raw power of her voice seems to shine in everything she does. I can't believe anyone that likes her and her band would be dissapointed in her new album. To me this woman doesn't write bad music. She keeps writing and cranking out quality music. As a singer and a writer she is way under exposed and way under rated. Luv her!
Grace Rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly Addicting February 8, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
I was introduced to Grace Potter and the Nocturnals by my friend who had seen them live. I was definitely not expecting to hear this woman's amazing voice belting out 70's janis joplin style tunes. Low Road, Paris (Ooh La La), and Tiny Light are my favorite songs from this album and I can't stop listening to them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful blues with a touch of pop January 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I fell in love with the pride of Vermont, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, years ago after seeing them open for Govt. Mule in Bozeman.
I was impressed, not only by the beaming smile, magnificent voice and boundless energy coming from this pint sized beauty, Grace Potter, but her prowess on the B3 Hammond organ. And there's nothing hotter than a woman who wields a Flying V and plays it like a pro.

Her backing band were pretty hot players too. And I fell in love with a woman who introduced her best song of the set, which she introduced as her "sex swing song."
So needless to say, I grabbed the two CDs of hers that were available, unfortunately the song wasn't on any of the CDs.

Nonetheless, I was impressed with the gritty organ powered blues of 2006's Something in the Water, but not so much with the more pop feel of the follow-up "This is Somewhere," so I had to scoop up her new self titled CD. And yes it has the "sex swing song" -- the sexy, bluesy groove of "Paris (Ooh La La)" she even played it on David Letterman back in December.

So that makes the CD immediately enjoyable.
Even better, it splits the difference between the gritty soulful blues of "Something In The Water," and the pop of "This Is Somewhere."
The new CD has plenty of Potter's pretty organ playing, which was missed on "This is Somewhere", a little funk, a touch of blues a little of the gospel featured on `Something In The Water," and is pretty much all awesome.
Her voice features elements of Tina Turner's soul, Gretchen Wilson's twang and Cyndi Lauper style '80s pop.
There are a lot of highlights on the CD.

Let me begin by saying that I do really like this band. I personally tend to prefer the earlier albums, but that's just a personal preference, and this album will probably grow on me over time. But its biggest problem is not with the music itself, it's with the production values of the disc. Overall, it sounds terrible to me. It's recorded far too loud, with far too much compression and audible distortion in places. I haven't noticed this problem on any of the other GP&N releases, but this one really does sound pretty awful. Sorry, but it does! What a waste. It could have been so much better.

For the last couple of decades the music industry has been fighting what's now referred to as a "loudness war" in which each album apparently tries to "out-loud" the others. The intent, of course it to make tracks from that album stand out on the radio or when played with other discs on "shuffle play". There is a general, though completely misguided, assumption that louder automatically sounds better. Years ago, when I sold hifi gear for a living, we found that folks almost invariably perceived a speaker that played louder to sound better, even though when the levels were equalized the louder speaker in reality often had inferior sound. Playing off of this phenomenon, the music industry now has a practice of using excess compression and outright loudness to presumably trick people into paying more attention. And the results have been abominable. Some albums from recent years have been almost painful to listen to for this very reason. This is nothing new of course, it's a practice used decades ago on 45 singles to make them sound better on jukeboxes and AM radio. But those days should be over and done with.
