There are lots of little facts and tidbits about my life and career that I’m sure can be summed up in a one-sheet, but that’s not the kind of thing I feel like I want to be writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Sophomore Album in YEARS! September 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Easily my top 3 albums of the year! Let's start with that. This album is the most delightful and expansive (style-wise) sophomore album I think I've ever heard since The Score from The Fugees (bold statement... I know). But I seriously cannot get enough of this CD. I've had a copy of it for about three days (I know, sue me). But I also pre-ordered the iTunes version for the pre-order song and ordered a hard copy version off Amazon to make up for my conscience.

From start to finish, this relentless work of beauty captures you early with great percussions (and excellent violin placement on Uncharted) along with the Bareilles-uniqueness of lyrics she always has. Many of the poppier songs take full advantage of the time signature that even my fingers are tapping to the rhythm as I type this review. Another highlight is the actual pacing of the album itself. The album as a whole feels like you've just taken two deep breaths, breathing in being the excitement from the catchy pop songs and breathing out to being the solace you find from the softer, piano/acoustic guitar tracks.

Let's take a walk, track-to-track:

* Kaleidoscope Heart (*/*) - No need to rate the intro, though it is a perfect intro! Feels like a minute of Hide & Seek from Imogen Heap. Definitely sparks your interest for what's about to come.

* Uncharted (5/5) - And Bam! Off we go... catchy simple piano backed with violin work. Simple progression into full band kick-in. Her singing style is great with this song. I simply love how the verse lines each start slow and finish with rapid-fire lyrics. Not only a perfect start to the album, but I also feel this would be a perfect start to a live show for her.

* Gonna Get Over You (4.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Colors In This Kaleidoscope September 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Sara Bareilles confidently sidesteps the threat of sophomore slump with "Kaleidoscope Heart." The album is sugary yet mature pop from head to toe.

Produced with care and empathy by Neil Avron, it breathes easily and organically, resulting in a sunny surface that lets the lyrics and melodies radiate without excess sounds or beat clouding it. This is the kind of record Sarah McLachlan's fans wish she was capable of crafting again.

Lead single "King of Anything" is highly indicative of the album as a whole with its witty observations and jangly, radio-friendly melody. "Uncharted," the first song Bareilles penned for the LP, is a moment of euphoric revelation, propelled with such urgency that it sounds like it had no choice but to escape the mind of its writer. It is just idiosyncratic enough to show Bareilles' texture and individuality yet also has hit potential due to its colorful, instantly endearing hook.

"Gonna Get Over You" is even more solid and well-oiled - a doo-wop-infused slice of relentlessly catchy, hopelessly upbeat piano pop that is radio-friendly all over. The lyrics and melody sound blissfully wed and inextricable. As with most of the songs, not a single syllable is awkward or wasted, and not one moment is excessively noisy or cluttered.

"The Light," with its pastoral, gorgeous, wintry arrangement, is so intense it feels like it might absolutely burst from the pressure built up inside it. The brooding "Hold My Heart," which resembles Beyonce's "Halo" with its anonymous handclaps, is nonetheless similarly stirring with its brooding contemplation and Bareilles' passionate vocals. She moves in-between the high and low notes with mathematical - though never mechanical - precision.

5.0 out of 5 stars a new fan of a great talent September 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I am a new fan. I heard Sara on television today and she grabbed my attention in the middle of a busy morning. I bought the album and love it. In a day when so many performers try to disguise their lack of ability with smoke clouds and laser beams, distracting costumes and an assortment of non-musical stupidity, Sara is a breath of fresh air. She is a wonderful songwriter who delivers her work with power, beauty and authenticity. The album is a true pleasure to listen to. This girl has talent. I don't buy very many whole albums, but this one is worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sara is the real deal! September 15, 2010
By Mike
Format:MP3 Music
Sara Bareilles is the real deal. If her album Little Voice hasn't convinced you, then her new album Kaleidoscope Heart should do the trick. After listening to her new release, I'd rank Sara Bareilles up there with Sarah Mclachlan as one of my favorite female singer songwriters.

I wondered if Sara could top Little Voice, and all I can say is that I wasn't disappointed. This another excellent album by Sara. This is probably one of the few albums that I will listen to all the way through and not feel the need to skip any songs. Stand out songs are Uncharted, Gonna Get Over You, Hold My Heart, King of Anything, Say You're Sorry, The Light and Let the Rain. The songs aren't as bluesy as the songs on "Little Voice," if that's what you're expecting. However, the melodies are excellent and memorable.

There are some great ballads on this album, and the upbeat songs have that playfulness in Sara's voice that I love.

5.0 out of 5 stars "This Territory is Uncharted" September 8, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a great sophomore effort from Sara Bareilles. She had a lot to live up to from her debut "Little Voice" with smash singles such as "Love Song", "Bottle It Up", and "Gravity". This LP does not dissapoint in the slightest. We are able to hear the piano-driven singer along with her witty lyrics and singable melodies once again. However, "Kaleidoscope Heart" adds some new sounds and instruments that we didn't experience with "Little Voice". Here's a track by track review:

1. Kaleidoscope Heart - This a cappella intro is a great way to start the CD. Singing in an a cappella group in college, Sara is quite talented in arranging harmonizing vocals. The lyrics fit well to introduce the entire album and lead perfectly into the first track.

2. Uncharted 10/10 - Definitely one of the standout tracks of this album. Right from the opening piano chords, listeners will be comforted to hear that Sara Bareilles signature-style staccato chords. The upbeat number is quite catchy and serves as the inspiraton for the rest of the album. Her vocals in the chorus (especially the final one) are filled with passion and conviction. This song is a gem from this album.

3. Gonna Get Over You 10/10 - Another one of the best tracks from this LP. This one may very well be a future single. I first heard this song from the "Gravity Tour" when she performed it live. I fell in love with it then and hoped it would show up on the album. I'm so glad it did. The layered vocals, snaps, and driving piano all blend together perfectly to pull this piece together.

4. Hold My Heart 9/10 - The verses and bridge in this song really shine. The claps turned me off at first, but they grow on me with more listens.

Target Deluxe Edition
The online site is offering the deluxe edition and states that version is not available in target stores. I think I will purchase the CD online, and hopefully it has the bonus material.

packaging concern
Well there IS a booklet in it. I know this because I downloaded it from iTunes and I got the digital version.

I haven't seen this album in any store yet though. I originally went to Wal-Mart to purchase it on its release date but they had nothing new for some peculiar reason.

Anyway, I guess... Read More

So what do you think will be the next single.......?
I have to agree with Uncharted being next. The problem is I went to the album and tried to pick the next one. This is so freaking hard. I have to go with Hold My Heart, Say Your Sorry, Gonna Get Over You then Machine Gun. I'm sure this will change when I get to the next track though.

Is anyone else about to explode from waiting for this release?
I heard some of the new songs at Lilith Fair three weeks ago, and they're amazing. She's a fantastic live performer, and she has a killer sense of humor. I can't wait for this new album to drop!
