On any given Friday night here in Portland, every other club and coffee shop has an Americana band playing, most of it good.

Black Prairie stands out of the crowd for several reasons but my favorite is Annalisa Tornfelt's vocals. She hits this ethereal, melancholic, angelic tone that I can't get enough of.

This album showcases her voice more than the first one.

But Black Prairie is more than her voice -- the band does lots of great instrumentals. The Decemberists, one of Portland's great bands, makes up the heart of Black Prairie, giving them a strong performing confidence. It's kind of like, "Screw this! We'll play what we want. We've got a hit band if the public doesn't like this one." So they play what they want, and we are all the better for it.

Bottom line: if you like the Americana genre, you will probably like this album. If you like Tornfelt's voice, you'll love it.

Black prairie is full of talent.....love their first album with a capital L. But this album's also great music was overshadowed by 2 particular tracks. One which has about 5 minutes of presumably intentional silence at the end (lame) and another that has closer to 15 minutes of silence which grows to an odd and loud snoring, or mooing, or whale grumble noise (really lame). I get that their artsists and their music is unparalleled but forget the gimicks and stick with what you're amazing at. I could have better spent my 10 bucks downloading he album as seperate songs effectively avoiding the 2 pieces of offending junk.

I agree with all the positive reviews on the content of this album, but I wanted to comment on the vinyl. This is a 2 disc album (even though the Amazon description says it's 1 disc) and, although there is no indication on the album cover or anywhere else, it is 45rpm. I found this out when I first played it at 33 1/3 and it sounded as slow as molasses in January (as my mom would say). Once I corrected the speed, I was amazed at how incredible the LP sounded from the perspective of frequency response and sound stage. If you've ever wanted to hear what it's like to have the band in the room with you, get this album and you'll find out in spades.

If you are a fan of The Decemberists, I think you will be pleasantly surprised by this sibe project by some of the lesser know members of the band. What I enjoyed most was the emphasis on the calming music, especially the string instruments used. This is a great addition to any playlist you may have for listening to wind down after a stressful day.

Great harmonies, great musicians, great music all together.
I originally found Black Prairie on Youtube for "How do you ruin me". I could not get the song out of my head so I bought the entire album hoping I wouldn't be disappointed. I was relieved. The whole thing is really good. I highly recommend it.

This is a wonderful album so far. Lead singer reminds me of the lead singer for HEM, which isn't a bad thing in my opinion. Definitely one of the best purchases I've made in awhile. It's not really bluegrass or folk, but a mix of both, with some zydeco here and there. It's a blend of genres I love, but can only listen to for awhile. Their own take makes it interesting throughout the entire album.

Occasionally an album comes out and at first you don't appreciate the quality, this is one of those cases. The more you listen, the more you understand their message. Light, backwoods, lyrical, harmonies and old time instrumentals enchant the listener to looking for more.

This album has some great songs on it as well as some esoteric ones. The long silent gaps on the last song are not necessary, but the John Hartford song, the Richard Manuel song, the one about Massachusetts and especially the song about addiction are great!
