I love her musical styling, voice, and lyrics.
Malvin L. Miranda
I'd say almost every song on it is good just like on "Feels like Home."

I really like buying MP3 downloads, and this is a good album.

For fans wanting more from last year's Rome, which was an interesting soundtrack concept album for a fictitious 1970's-era Italian movie (honest!), by Danger Mouse, Daniele Luppi, and Norah Jones, this ain't it. There are a few stylistic teases, and the collaboration partially returns with Danger Mouse's co-writing. But "Broken Hearts" comes across first and foremost as a Norah Jones album, and you get the sense she has now had her break out debut, played the field while sowing her musical oats, and is settling into a style she wants to define rather than the other way around.

This is a solid atmospheric effort that has grown on me. It is not straight up chill by any means, but many of the tracks can put you in a mellow groove as long as you listen to the music more than the lyrics (if "Broken Hearts" is a soundtrack about anything, it is for the story of a relationship's very bad end). Overall has a very vintage sound, but not an outdated one. I wish I had bought it on a LP as opposed to CD, I sometimes got the feeling it may have been mixed more with vinyl in mind.

Other reviewers may be giving the album knocks for not having super stand out tracks, and I agree, I don't see a lot of big hits coming off of this. But I'd still have to say this is her most complete package to date, even though many of the songs are short and you can listen through the entire CD rather quickly. "Out on the Road" and "She's 22" are the only songs I think I'll skip entirely, but it's interesting to wonder what double meaning might exist when she sings on one "I'm holding on to a thing that's wrong...but you like my songs and made me happy".

Norah Jones new album is an utter masterpiece to me. It is what "Rubber Soul" was to the Beatles; a complete change up in musical direction for the better. I've always respected Norah for her talent and unique voice but I could never find myself being deeply devoted to her albums until I heard this masterpiece. While I enjoyed her first two albums, the farthest I could ever go as far as listening to them is to just check her out occasionally. This is due to the slow tempo of her early work. In other words, I can't see myself listening to Norah Jones on my way to work or as i go on my daily jog because her music was too slow for me. The only time i could listen to her is when I was reading my morning paper and having my coffee in the morning. Before this album came out I always said to myself, "One day this girl has to make an album that rocks." Finally! It has come.

I came about hearing this new material when I was at the the Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco 2012. I went to see Norah perform telling myself, "I'll listen to 4 songs and then go to another show because I know she tends to be a little mellow." Mind you, Metallica and Stevie Wonder were also performing and they were more of the energy I was looking for but when I went to see Norah...SHE COMPLETELY ROCKED THE HOUSE!!!

First she started off her show with the classics from her first two albums then she declared, "We're going to perform some songs from my new album...produced by Danger Mouse." I thought to myself, "Danger Mouse? That guy is an amazing producer and one of the last good hip-hop artist around (contemporary hip-hop is a disgrace to music and poetry). Loved his album with MF DOOM. Can it be? Is Norah going to rock the house?

I thought it was a good album and enjoyed most of her tracks. Something different Norah chose to do and I tip my hat to her. Has a vintage sound to it especially on her vocals and the overall ambiance of the record. I think if you are a Norah Jones fan and don't restrain Artists to a limited little box you will enjoy it as well. Grows on you. Give it a chance..

I always enjoy Norah Jones' singing, and I like what producer Danger Mouse, a.k.a. Brian Burton, has done with her sound on Little Broken Hearts. However, only three songs on the album really stand out for me: "Good Morning," "Say Goodbye" and "Out on the Road." The rest of the material has a sort of ho-hum quality that always threatened to move it into the background of whatever I was doing as I listened. Still, Burton deserves credit for an excellently produced album. He added little subtle bells and whistles that spice up the sound, plus some equally artful adjustments to the vocals (a hint of reverb here, a smidge of double-tracking there). The musicianship is also quite good throughout, including Ms Jones' own work on keys and guitar. Ultimately, though, what undermined my pleasure with Little Broken Hearts was that so many of the songs, all co-written by Jones & Burton, are completely unmemorable. Perhaps Norah is suffering a bit from "Ryan Adams Over-Productivity Syndrome." Maybe with all of her side projects (Little Willies, the Rome album, her acting), the focus on her own solo work was diluted. Whatever the reason, this new album is very nice-sounding but otherwise undistinguished.
