"The Voyager" by Jenny Lewis is her best album yet. Every track is brilliantly crafted. No filler here. This album chronicles some personal struggles Jenny was dealing with at the time, like the death of her estranged father and her persistent bouts with insomnia. "Head Underwater" is my favorite track. The song is about depression and ultimately finding your way out of that dark hole. "She's Not Me" and "Slippery Slopes" are about infidelity. "You Can't Outrun 'Em" and the title track are Jenny's moving tributes to her late dad who passed away from colon cancer. "Late Bloomer" and "The New You" are gorgeous songs about rediscovering yourself and reconnecting with the outside world. "Just One of The Guys" is about Jenny's hopeful wish to be a mother someday, and on "Love U Forever", Jenny tries to manipulate her long-time boyfriend into popping the question. "Aloha & The Three Johns" is about a tropical vacation gone awry, but Jenny's "sweet as molasses" vocals make the song not so dreary. "The Voyager" makes me happy even though a lot of the tracks have dark subject matter. Jenny is a very charismatic and multi-talented musician. You can hear and feel the emotion in her voice and there isn't one awkward note on this amazing album. There's hook after hook and she uses real instruments, no "flip a switch" kind of music here folks - just the good stuff. Everyone should own this record because it's got a nice balance of crisp, sunny melodies and brutally frank songwriting. "The Voyager" is one of my favorite albums of 2014. I don't think it's possible for Jenny to make a bad album, she's THAT good! Enjoy.

It's been a number of years since we've been fortunate enough to enjoy new Jenny Lewis material, but in this case boy was it worth the wait. Nearly every single track is artfully crafted and endlessly re-listenable. I love the confluence of contemplative lyrics, harmonious instrumentals, all tied together by the uniquely bell-clear vocals that Jenny provides.

Particular highlights include Head Underwater, She's Not Me, Late Bloomer, and the title track. Only two weaker tracks in You Can't Outrun 'Em and Aloha & the Three Johns - not that they are bad, but not up to the instant classic caliber that the rest of the album provides.

Do not miss this if you enjoyed Rilo Kiley, but this should be a pleasurable listen for pretty much anyone with a functioning set of ears.

Everything I expected and more. I fell in love with Ms. Lewis' songs after seeing Rilo open for Coldplay several years ago. Watching her switch between guitar, bass, organ, harmonica, etc. made it clear that she was going to be a versatile songwriter. I find myself going back and forth as to whether I like the folky tunes more or the rock tunes more. Just a ton of great melodies, great storytelling, and just enough grit to remind people that she can rock. Listen to Late Bloomer as shorthand for the whole record. It starts with a lighthearted acoustic into with sweet vocals, moves into a haunting chorus, throws in a junglebook type section, and then ends with almost a confusing, electric minor fade out.

Jenny let a little more Rilo vibe-in on this one. I love everything she's ever done. So granted, I'm a hardcore, biased fan. But I honestly believe The Voyager will go down as one of her best works (including Rilo). Rabbit Fur Coat is so great. But it's distinct and different from everything else. The Voyager is more a mix of a lot of Jenny-sounds, while staying a cohesive album.
And as always, Jenny's voice is on-point. One of the most under-rated vocalists of our time- as far as pure, angelic, clarity goes. She did it again. Jenny fans will be in love!

What a great album already!! I am really glad that there is not a bunch of reviews saying that this album doesn't live up to Rilo Kiley standards. I myself was all set to say something all the lines of "It's okay, but not as good as old Rilo Kiley..." but this album is fantastic!! I have already heard "Just One of the Guys" a bunch of times and I thought it was a pretty good song and I was expecting it to be the highlight of the album. But there are so many good songs on this album! It's got some country-esque songs, disco-esque songs and plenty of bizarre, ambiguous "Jenny Lewis" lyrics. Thank you so much, Jenny, for another amazing album!!!

I only discovered Jenny Lewis in the past five years, and after falling in love with Rabbit Fur Coat and then Acid Tongue I went through her entire catalog, listening to her great performances with New Pornographers and Rilo Kiley.

I pre-ordered this new album without missing a beat (I ordered on CD because I really like having a physical backup copy) and was nervous the first time I listened to it.... I suspected after having listened to "One of the Guys" that Jenny had changed her sound on this album... and she has, but not in a bad way!

The new album is a little more upbeat than past albums and some would argue that it is just a little more "pop" mainstream... and that's true, some of the tracks (One of the Guys) are a little more pop-catchy... but there are plenty of tracks that have that wonderful Jenny Lewis crooning that we know and love, You Can't Outrun 'Em is my current favorite.

Any Jenny Lewis fan should love this album and want it in their playlist.
