Editorial Reviews

Product Description

One of Canada's very finest singers and songwriters! Her previous CDs have drawn universal acclaim achieving near-cult status, but this stunning new CD, her fifth album and the follow-up to her 2003 Juno Award-winning "Unravel," is being called her finest, most realized recording ever. With its rich blend of pop, country and folk sounds, great melodies and production, and intelligent yet accessible lyrics, it is at once intensely introspective and universal, a soaring vehicle for Miles' sweet, melodic and powerful voice.

"Love Sweet Love" again finds Miles teaming up with "Unravel" producer and guitarist Ian Lefeuvre and drummer Peter Von Althen, both of Starling, and Chelsea Bridge double-bassist John Geggie to create a record of complex, visceral material. Rounding out the sound are Prairie Oyster guitarist Keith Glass and violinist James Stephens.

Canadian folkie Lynn Miles has always brought new luminescence to the most familiar topics, and so she does again with an album that maps the thrilling hills, scary back roads, hairpin curves, desolate valleys, and all-flat terrain of love. Picking up where her last record, the Juno Award-winning Unravel, left off, she writes in the lyrical poetry of the wounded ("I've got no strength to move, to breathe, to cry, to scream, to stand and fight"), and moves through the various stages of love, from seduction to paralyzing grief. Miles works in a rootsy style (think Shawn Colvin via Lucinda Williams, especially on the banjo-driven and country-ish "8-Hour Drive"), but she lingers long in the dark reality of the dissolution of romance, most effectively in the elegant pop of "Night Drive," where she attempts to outrun her own racing thoughts. Miles stops on her journey to ponder the complex and mysterious machinations of love's primary organ (the hauntingly melancholy "Sweet and Tender Heart"), and as the most doomed lovers do, finds a hopeful tone and redemption in her pain. Her sadness is our salvation. --Alanna Nash

I like this album even more than "Unravel," and I do like that. In fact, I think it's her best since the beautiful first one, "Slightly Haunted." There are some pop hooks here, but I think that enhances things, and used well, not as filler or a crutch. Her slightly weathered voice (now) is used beautifully, in sync with the lyrics and accompaniment. Miles has pared down some of the complexity of her songs, but if anything they pack just as much, if not more, punch for that. She won two well deserved awards at the Canadian Folk Awards for this album (Including Best Contemporary Songwriter), and you can see why here. The album just moves me a lot with each listen.

The poetess of sadness and North Country chill is back with an album of new songs-her first in four years since the magnificent UNRAVEL. Although not quite up to that high standard (nor that of her equally wonderful second cd, SLIGHTLY HAUNTED), there's lots to love on this new release. In fact, the title cut and a number of others are about the edges of love, the wishes for it, and the walls which keep it out or keep it in. Lynn's way with a melody is as engaging as ever, her almost talking and then singing approach as direct and personal as it ever was, her wistfulness and wishfulness and sadness as palpable as always.

A THOUSAND LOVERS COULD PUT THEIR ARMS AROUND ME

A THOUSAND WISHES COULD FALL LIKE SUMMER RAIN

A THOUSAND MOTHERS COULD SING

"HUSH NOW, DON'T YOU CRY"

THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS WORLD TONIGHT THAT IS GOING TO

TAKE AWAY MY PAIN.

But joy breaks through sometimes or will soon-particularly in "This is the Night" and "Sweet and Tender Heart." You wish that for Lynn. You want the down-turned sides of her sensitive mouth to lift. This beautiful Canadian has done it again. Lovely.

Format: Audio CD
The confessional singer-songwriter is not ordinarily a performer to my taste, but Lynn Miles, whom I am hearing for the first time on this CD, does the style honorably. These are songs of adult experience -- loneliness, heartbreak, sexuality, escape -- that neither cloy nor collapse into narcissistic obsessiveness. They sound real, as in vividly drawn stories and emotions from recognizable life. Miles is a strong, expressive singer, especially effective on nourish excursions such as "Night Drive," "8 Hour Drive," and "This Is the Night." Though I approached this recording with a certain skepticism, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a significant -- if so far overlooked -- talent. Let's hope this CD gets Miles the attention she deserves south of the Canadian border.

GREAT voice and emotion in the singing. Genuine sounding light rock with a folk twist music rather than commercial. Well produced. Some songs are better than others. Sometimes the songs seem to be paced too quickly. Many are a little on the short side and sometimes she tries too hard to make rhymes with her lyrics. Most of all, the album lacks anything approaching guitar solos an/or other nice instrumental play that would make the songs great. On Something Beautiful she's closer in that the songs are consistently stronger and her voice is even better. I'm pulling for her to take it to the next level. If she could add a guitarist who could help flush out the songs, she would be golden.
