Carmen Rodgers "The Bitter Suite" Deluxe Edition is beautiful....relationship advice, given in song that hits the heart and lives there, long after the cd ends. Never Again, Better U Than Me, Home and Tell Your Story, tell a story, with interludes in between about love and relationships that we can all identify with. It was the haunting It's Me that got me to buy the mp3 and I wasn't disappointed. When Carmen breaks down that we all have that "bitter sweet" thing going on in our lives and how it prepares you for the "light at the end of the darkness," you are happy you listened in on this conversation of the heart. My other pick for best of 2011. Makes you feel good about the state of music and if you seek the great, you will find it. Highly recommended.

Like the old saying "you're beautiful when you're angry," Carmen Rodgers sounds really good when she's bitter. And she effectively captures the stages of hurt, anger and resignation of a love gone bad on her new EP, The Bitter Suite.

It's been six years since the Dallas-based singer won a sizable number of fans with her debut album, Free, and those fans have been not-so-patiently waiting for more. Rodgers' full sophomore disc, Intermission, a complete story of a relationship gone good, then bad, then good again, will be coming later; but she is now issuing a big chunk of it (the "gone bad" part) with the digital release of The Bitter Suite.

Rodgers lets the listener (and her man) know from the get go where things stand, opening with a defiant tone on the neo-soul midtempo, "Tell Your Story": "Tell your story at the door / 'cause I've heard it all before / and now I'm not so sure if I want this love anymore." By the time of the terrific next song, the acoustic gem "Home," Carmen is more reflective but just as resolved to end the relationship: "You say you want to come home / but home is where the heart lived / and I just want to move on / so should you."

Male listeners be a bit unnerved by the interspersed table talk of a group of women throughout the disc, who verbally lump men into a pretty bad lot of liars and cheaters. And Rodgers feeds on that talk, vowing not to get hurt anymore on the nervous, jazzy "Never Again," another EP highlight. But as the disc approaches its coda, she begins to come around, realizing that there may be some value in all that damn pain, and she finishes in a more pensive mood on the ballad, "Better U Than Me.
