Great album. So varied, if you don't like one song, wait for the next. Heard reviewed on NPR Saturday April 24th. Bought it right away.
I like new and exciting women singers, they bring a brightness to the music world.

I saw Gaby with the Milk Carton Kids in Pittsburgh on 10/6/11 and immediately fell in love with her music. This album is an electic mix of blues, soul,jazz, bossa nova and traditional latin music that's a little folky with some pop thrown in. Gaby's sound is really unique and unlike anyone else making music right now. The album is half English/Spanish, but not inaccessible to non-Spanish speakers. My favorite tracks are "Mean Old Circus," and "Intento." If I had to boil it down I'd say she's like a Guatemalan Edith Piaf with soul, but she's really a lot more than that description gives her credit for. She's a joy to watch perform as well--her stage presence is very soulful and she's charming to boot. I strongly suggest getting this album and seeing her play if she comes to your town. She'll sign the CD for you, too.

This music is all over the map in the best way possible. Gaby wears her influences on her sleeve, old school and gritty new school. Look out Adele! Such variety and engaging arrangements with so many winks and nods to Beatles, Delaney and Bonnie, XTC, and the folk tradition. This is music that is immediately gripping and will take a long time to dig into.

Reviewing music is kind of strange because everyone has different taste in music. I will just mention that if you're the type that likes an artist who writes a variety of music genres, who blends different styles, and is fixated on the 20s and 60s (as Gaby Moreno said in other words), then this is for you. It's clever and it's potpourri. Gaby is Guatemalan so she sings in both Spanish and English, with an accent. She also said that she's not a blues singer, but she loves the blues. She incorporates all these different styles into this little gem of an album. You can hear it in the previews here and full songs on her page on YouTube before you buy it. It's all quite charming. If you don't understand the Spanish lyrics you can put them on google translate, but her songs are well written. Her later album, Postales, shows some growth and has wonderful songs in it as well. They are a pleasure to listen to in the background while working, dining, driving, talking... or listening to for the sake of listening. This Illustrated Songs, and her other albums, don't contain pop songs and I know this kind of music will leave some people scratching their heads not knowing what to think of it. That's probably because this takes you out of the norm.

Gaby's music comes from the heart and you can sense the absolute passion for her music on each song as she takes you in a journey back in time while she manages to keep you grounded in the present. Her voice is truly a pleasure to listen to. This cd is worth every penny! Highly recommend all her music.
