Product Description

2010 release, the third album from the Vermont-based Rock outfit fronted by multi-instrumentalist Grace Potter. The band blends funky Blues, Soul and Rock influenced by bands from the '60s and '70s. Unlike other modern singer/songwriters, Grace has guts, gusto and knows how to Rock with the help of her ace band The Nocturnals.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grace Potter & The Nocturnals party like it's 1975 September 13, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Grace Potter & The Nocturnals self-titled third album has an interesting story behind it. The record was originially supposed to be produced by T-Bone Burnett. They had a few sessions, but Burnett had to pull out of the album at the last minute, due to his already busy schedule. In the past year alone, he produced Alison Krauss & Robert Plant ("Raising Sand"), Robert Randolph & The Family Band ("We Walk This Road"), Willie Nelson ("Country Music"), John Mellencamp ("No Better Than This"), the soundtrack to the film "Crazy Heart" and Ryan Bingham's recent effort "Junky Star". So Grace Potter recruited Mark Batson, who's best known for his work with India Arie, Nas, Anthony Hamilton and Dave Matthews Band.

The album starts off with the first single "Paris (Ooh La La)", a song that is catchy as it is infectious. She offers an inspiring message on the song "Oasis" and gets down and dirty on the recession-themed "Money". The break-up song "Goodbye Kiss" makes a good case for being on radio, with the slight hint of reggae attached to it. "Only Love" bears an obvious early 70's Motown influence, while "One Short Night" has her regretting having an affair. This album alternates between early blues rock and soul music, and even country- as evidenced in the song "Colors". As great as this album is, one can't help but notice how radio-friendly most of the songs are. But as outstanding as this band is, they deserve to be heard by the masses.
