Editorial Reviews

'Masts of Manhatta' is Tracy Bonham's best and most personal record to date, and reflects the singer's peripatetic lifestyle, moving between tango-influenced rhythms, Tom Waits-inspired Klezmer folkpunk and pastoral country with multiple pit stops in between. Produced by Tchad Blake (Elvis Costello, Bernard Fanning) and featuring Smokey Hormel (Beck, Johnny Cash). Romance, love and heartache make their appearance, but where Bonham's early vocal efforts displayed a rebellious snarl, the singer nowadays takes a softer, if no less direct, approach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great October 28, 2010
By Trevor
Format:Audio CD
Her musicianship is simply amazing. I feel that the lack of production with this album only adds to the character of the songs. You truly hear what was meant to be heard. Nothing more. Nothing to hide behind. Many artists try to pull it off but fall short. Not Tracy Bonham. She executes it perfectly.

Great singing, and every song shows a different mix of musical influences. My wife kept saying things like "oh that track sorta reminds me of..." naming a different performer with each track.

I doubt this album will get anything like the sales it deserves because it doesn't fit any marketing niche -- and she clearly did not care about fitting into any slot. Wikipedia says "alternative rock," which is correct as far as it goes, but doesn't begin to capture the mix of influences including folk, Middle East, Classical, and Klezmer that can be heard on this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars She's awesome! September 5, 2010

So talented, especially with the different instruments she plays and adds to songs. I like this "slower" album...less "rockish" than her earlier ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tracy Bonham Improves By The Album August 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's odd to hear that Tracy Bonham gets smacked with a folk label and gets compared with Sheryl Crow. First, she doesn't use any form of voice shaping tools--where one can hear the Glee-Tunnel-Noise from that Crow person on every song. It is clearly not her voice that gets compared.
More, since album one, this young lady has kicked ass on every album she's done. And improved. And the recordings get better. And the all-encompassing-experience improves CD by CD.
She's more a Regina Spektor than an annoying Crow.
This newest album is long in the coming and you feel the variation in the years she wrote each song or recorded them--that said, she managed to put them forth as a whole experience and make them all a cogent whole of a listening experience. Her earlier albums didn't have that. They staggered from tune to tune--all good, but none near each other in feel.

This album is her best so far... I put a Tom Waits label on her music--as she seems to want to follow his path of growth--if not his alcoholic-stupor and then growth.
It may be that marriage has offered her a clean and simple ability to move back and forth from NYC to Woodstock and live a combo-lifestyle that few get the opportunity get--but she does so with aplomb and it shows in her music.

This album belongs in your top 25 rotation.

Tracy Bonham is and will be a going and growing keeper for albums to come.
Buy her music. Be glad that as good as Mother, Mother was--she's saving her voice for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music for Manhattan August 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was a gift for my daughter, who lives in Brooklyn and loves all things New York (but still misses Austin, TX!). I preordered it because I loved the artist, even though my daughter has never heard of her. She is now a new convert and ordered the CD for one of her NY friends! An ordering must for folky New Yorkers!
