Format: Audio CD
Loook, I take this reviewing thing seriously. Someone may choose to part with their hard-earned money based on something I might write, so I say to you -- fully cognizant of the my responsibility to you, undecided consumer -- that this is a fantsatic album and your life will be greatly enriched by purchasing it, downloading it, or borrowing your neighbor's copy forthwith.

The album is very reminsiscent of a music box -- amuisc box for women in a noir story. A music box for babes in a contemporary wood. Basically, these are lullabies for grown-ups. Wistful, insightful, haunting, and so eerily *true*. "Beautiful" is one of the real-est songs I've ever heard.

Eleni Mandell is a genius, a genius swimming in the sweet syrup of the warm and gooey sauce of awesomeness. OK, let me state at the outset that I am a big fan. I love ALL her previous albums, but Miracle of Five is now my favorite. I've always been awed by Ms. Mandell's way of mixing sharp insights with soft, visceral imagery. Her lyrics and singing are always so incredibly evocative. She also has an uncanny way of articulating and illuminating things I've thought and felt. Her music is full of wonderful melodies and hooks and resonance. Her lyrics are incredible. Her voice is nimble and expressive and sultry and smart and sassy.

"Moonglow, Lamp Low" feels like my soul's theme song. "Girls" makes me think Eleni has read my mind (again). "WIngs in His Eyes"a nd the title track perfectly express how I feel about my new sweetheart. And "Perfect Stranger" -- been there. I could go on and on.

Suffice it to say this is a great album with great songs and atmospheric music that perfectly fits her lyrics and voice. Trust me; get it. Seriously. You'll love it.

Miracle of Five is Eleni Mandell's new album.

If you like a bluesy, sultry, country, exotic voice that is remuniscent of the sixties, with an original slant- this is the album for you.

Waited six weeks to get it locally, gave up, recieved it at my door in four days from Amazon at the same price. Am I happy? You bet.

I have absolutely loved this album since I bought it a couple months back. I literally got mad at myself for not knowing about its existence for the past 3 years. I've been mostly listening to the CD in my car but got a pleasant surprise when I slipped it into my home theater system and my OPPO blu-ray player detected that it is a HDCD. For those unfamiliar, HDCDs play the music back at 20 bit resolution instead of CDs 16 bit resolution when the player can support it (check your owners manual). The increase in digital data is audible. Her voice sounds rich and the instruments really come alive. This album is beautiful in its spaciousness and the increase in fidelity only adds to that. If you can imagine, the sounds is actually more relaxing than the CD version. Oddly, the HDCD designation appears nowhere on the this site or on the packaging. I guess it is an easter egg. I highly recommend the CD and, if you own it, I recommend you try to listen to it in HDCD mode.

This CD combines charming lyrics with the relaxed, sensitive singing style of Eleni Mandell and an accompaniment skillfully woven in by an outstanding group of musicians. Each song is an individual treat.
