Identical sisters Chandra and Leigh Watson have always been more noteworthy for the things they've done behind the spotlight rather in front of it. Members of the Silver Lake, CA scene that has spawned such acts as Rilo Kiley, Sea Wolf, and Eels, the Watson Twins' biggest impact in the music world was as the backing vocalists to Jenny Lewis' superb solo record, Rabbit Fur Coat. Their solo work, particularly 2008's Fire Songs, has been marked mainly by a disturbing lack of any definable identity. Enlisting fellow Silver Lake artists Russell Pollard and J. Soda of Everest to help produce their latest might not have been the most refreshing idea in retrospect, as Talking to You, Talking To Me is essentially what the Twins have been doing for over a decade, but for some at first indiscernible reasons it's a much more fully-realized, capable record than its predecessors.

The most readily apparent cause is the Twins' themselves; whereas earlier efforts found each sister sharing the mic on each song, Talking To You, Talking To Me mainly focuses one song on one sister at a time, with the other primarily handing backup duties for the duration of the track. It's a smart move that pays off by not confusing the listener and by allowing each tune to have its own focus, a linear narrative thread not broken up by call-and-response verses. More importantly, however, and something that becomes increasingly obvious as the record continues, is the improved instrumentation and backing music. Too often before in the Twins' discography the vocals were an album's highlights, adorned with only the barest piano and guitar or the occasional woodwind.

Reminds me of Cowboy Junkies, but less depressing. Beautiful voices, and that U N Me song is haunting. It was free, but I liked it so much I got the entire album. I'm not sorry I did.

The Watson Twins make an amazing artistic leap forward with this new album. The beautiful harmonies are still there, but the sound is less dreamy, and more beat-driven, with classic R&B, soul, and funk influences. It's like Neko Case and Amy Winehouse got together and had twins!

I love 'Talking to You, Talking to Me'. My earlier experience with the Watson Twins was with their collaboration with Jenny Lewis. The songs on this album were not completely expected at least in a couple of delights like "U N Me" and "Saving You", but the power and beauty of their harmonies is also completely stunning on tracks "Tell Me Why" and "Harpeth River". I also love "Devil in You", in which they sing, '...well the Devil in you tried to tell me what to do...I don't think so'. What a score for Amazon to have this exclusive! Love those angelic voices...well done, gals.

Talking to You, Talking to Me is a spectacular album, rich and lovely, full of confidence and aggressive, bold strokes. It's a real rocker too, strong guitar-based and hooky melodies. "Modern Man," the opening song, starts with a melodic bass line that brings to mind Scottish postpunkers Josef K: if so, they're listening to some good stuff. The full, womanly vocals - not breathy or girlish - remind me somewhat of Bjork at her personal best, and Tracey Thorn of Anything But the Girl, serious and forthright. But this is original, fully-formed Watsons.
