Miranda Lee Richards, former model and in the late 90s a brief member of Brian Jonestown Massacre (check the outstanding "DIG!" DVD), released one of the most stunning debut albums of this decade with 2001's "The Herethereafter", which was in my top three of the 'best of' albums of that year. Almost 8 years later, that album still resonates with me, with timeless classic tunes like "Folkin' Hell" and "I Know What It's Like". After that album, Miranda took to the road in support of the album, and then... nothing. For reasons unknown, no new record was forthcoming. Finally, in late 2008, Miranda released the "Early November" EP on iTunes, and now comes the long, long awaited second album.

"Light of X" (13 tracks including one 'hidden', 58 min.) starts off with a mesmerizing 1-2 punch of "Breathless" and "Lifeboat", 2 of the best tracks on here, just hauntingly beautiful, and it immediately feels like an old friend is back again. Miranda sounds and feels more confident and comfortable than she did on her debut album 8 years ago. The first half of the album is just STACKED with achingly beautiful tracks, such as "Hideaway" with lyrics like "So lay down your head/And rest your eyes my friend/Cause we're in this life together/Birds of a Feather". "Early November" is a song that should find wide acceptance on commercial radio, if that was still any good (which of course it isn't). The second half of the album starts off with a pensive acoustic "Hidden Treasure" (with strings arranged by Miranda). "Pictures of You" (not to be confused with the Cure track of the same name) sounds like another radio single to me. Nine tracks into the album and Miranda delivers another stunner, "Here By the Window", wow.

First and foremost, this is music you should own! I like Miranda's description of her music as "psychedelic 12 string folk." That it is.

BUT, and maybe I'm not being fair here, this record is not in the same "psychedelic" vein as Richard's first release "The Herethereafter."

"The Heretherafter" without ANY doubt was cut from the cloth of the Brian Jonestown Massacre experience Miranda just survived. And yes, check out Miranda in DiG and you'll see what I mean by survive.

That record, and her association with Newcombe and the BJM was 8 years ago. This new record is a MAJOR stretch in my opinion to call itself psychedelic. Eight years later there seems to be no funky laid back groove. No subtle yet crucial spacy ness. Nothing like "Herethereafter." And here is where I guess I might be unfair, why should an artist be pigeon-holed into making the same music over and over, or eight years apart. I guess the selfish reason is I like "Herethereafter" much more than "Light of X." I wanted more!

Back to my first line, own this music. Despite "Light of X" NOT being up to "herethereafter" it still is a wonderful recording and Richards is a wonderful talent that needs to encouraged and supported!

My hope for Ms Richards is that there NOT be eight years in between releases for her next record AND that she employ Anton Newcombe as her producer, engineer, collaborator and return to the psychedelic fold she fits so beautifully in!

Artfully written, performed and produced, Light of X is a clear musical advance over its predecessor. Miranda's voice, if you enjoy her type of delivery, is about as sweet as it gets. Very easy to listen to; you want to be immersed in it. Several gorgeous standouts, including, Breathless, Early November, and Hidden Treasure with its string arrangement. A young singer-songwriter who has hit her stride. Wish more artists paid as much attention to composition and production. Eagerly awaiting more material!

Psychedelic yet to the point. Great cd. A rockier Nanci Griffith. Depth and breadth. Not a bad song in the bunch. Definitely one of my best purchases.

Miranda Lee Richards has the most beautiful singing voice of anyone I have heard, ever. If only she released more albums!
