Editorial Reviews

On Mystery Prize, Loebe plays acoustic guitar, and her band includes stand-up bass, percussion, pedal steel, and one musician who can add tenor guitar, harmonica, trumpet, or mandolin. The bass player also adds second guitar and keyboards. Then add guest musicians who contribute accordion, backing vocals, a horn section and a trio of strings. Here you have a recipe either for a sonic mess, or a rich musical pallet. In painting, you would either get an ugly brown blob or Starry Night. This one is closer to Starry Night. Loebe knows just what to do with each musical color; she knows which part of her canvas needs which musical color. But more important, Loebe knows when to leave things out. This is a rare musical gift, requiring confidence and the ability to trust ones instincts

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing February 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD
THE QUICK & DIRTY: Rebecca Loebe's second full-length project combines folk, pop and country to create a thoughtful, honest and oft-catchy collection of well-crafted songs.

THE LOW DOWN:

From the outset this project bursts with creativity. The songs are well-written, well-constructed and exquisitely produced. The centerpieces for Loebe's music are unmistakably her voice cradled by acoustic guitar, and on "Mystery Prize" these elements are also adorned with pleasant production touches and backing instruments (everything from goat hooves to cajon to slide guitar to horns to a string quartet) that always add flavor and never detract from what really matters.

Throughout, however, what really matters is Loebe's voice - so alive and honest - animating songs in a way that only she can. Her vocal expression effortlessly weaves from breathy and vulnerable to sweet and flirty to terse and sassy to bold and soaring, with her beautiful instrument driving home a gamut of emotions and connecting instantly with the listener.

Lyrically, Loebe avoids the folksy gimmick of merely stringing together interesting lines to form a larger opaque statement (a la Dylan). Her lyrics say what they need to, with clever metaphors, efficient storytelling and raw emotion covering everything from confusion, angst and regret to unabashed love.

If there is a flaw with this album, and one has to search for it, it's that some of the compositions are similar in key and structure ("Marguerita," "Meridian"). But the moments of genius that surround this minor miscue are so bright that they easily make up for it ("Mystery Prize," "Land & Sea," "Her in That Dress," "Married Man," "Trenches Dear," "Siren" and "Avalanche").

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome voice - refreshing music. May 25, 2011

Just love her voice and her creativity. So disappointed that she got already eliminated from the voice - BAD mistake Adam going with a forgetable commercial voice instead!Please keep on going Rebecca!
