5.0 out of 5 stars Like hearing it for the first time December 21, 2000
Format:DVD Audio|Verified Purchase
When Natalie Merchant announced her departure from 10,000 Maniacs, there was much speculation about whether or not she would be able to match the quality of the Maniacs songs in a solo career. On my first listen through the Tigerlily CD in the summer of 1995, I knew for sure that Natalie had come through. Tigerlily was an amazing album. When I popped the DVD-Audio disc in my player and began listening, it was like the first time all over again. It's the same beautiful music and the same incredible songwriting, but the sound is exceptional.
The surround mix adds a quality to the music that can't easily be described in words, and the depth of the sound easily outpaces that of the CD. I found myself noticing subtle elements to each song that I had never heard before. Each instrument stands on its own, with much better seperation than exists in the stereo mix on the CD. Just to be sure I wasn't hallucinating, I listened to a track from the CD and then immediately listened to the DVD version. No contest. This is no minor difference. It's amazing.
As previous reviews have noted, you need a DVD-Audio player to take full advantage of the disc. The disc does contain Dolby Digital tracks, so it will play on a regular DVD player, but you won't be getting the best possible sound from it. This is not a video DVD, so don't expect movies, music videos or anything else. Buy this disc for the music, not for extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 songs February 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This set has the origional Tigerlilly cd and a second cd with 5 songs:
1. Jealousy (REMIX EDIT)
2. Sympathy for The Devil (live)[the same as the B-side on the Jealousy single]
3. Baby I Love You/Son Of A Preacher Man (live)[NOT the same as the 'Baby I Love You' on the Wonder single]
4. Take a Look (live)
5. The Work Song (live)
As a devouted Natalie fan, I had to have it even though it only has two songs I don't already own. The booklet containing the lyrics has the lyrics written in several languages, although the actual cd is in English. The actual cd is completely green, instead of green and orange like the original.
For devoted Natalie fans, it is a must have, still, for those just becoming interested in her, save yourselves the money and buy the original Tigerlilly.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite discs May 16, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I have to say that I LOVE this album. I became a 10,000 Maniacs fan back in 1987 when they opened for R.E.M. at a concert. After that I followed 10,000 Maniacs and continued to enjoy their music, but I was always especially appreciative of Natalie Merchant's soaring, beautiful voice.
Natalie's voice is highlighted on this album. At times she is emotional; at times she is warm and soothing; at times she sounds strong and determined; at other times she simply croons. But whatever the mood, at all times Natalie is expressive. Her outstanding voice and her great songwriting are what make this disc so appealing.
This is not 10,000 Maniacs, and if you are looking for that, go buy a 10,000 Maniacs CD. Usually when a band splits up, the departed member(s) go off to do their own thing that often sounds different from the band's previous work (think of Sting and the Police, for instance). That is probably the way it should be; an artist who leaves a band and subsequently copies the band's previous tunes would inevitably be criticized. Reading the reviews of this album, however, it appears that some people criticize Natalie for not replicating the sound of 10,000 Maniacs.
This disc shows Natalie Merchant's continued growth as an artist - she has left her former band, and here she has the freedom to experiment a little and cultivate her own voice.
The end result is an EXCELLENT album. These are plaintive songs, stripped down, well written and well performed without a lot of fanfare. The radio hits ("Carnival," "Wonder," and "Jealousy") are great tunes, but they sound even better as part of the overall package of songs here. "San Andreas Fault" has all the makings of a great FM radio hit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Growing up--leaving home December 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Tigerlily is a bittersweet progression. I miss the Natalie era Maniacs. I miss the way they could meld exuberance and significance so seamlessly that their music spoke not only to your heart, but to your mind--a part of me wishes she had never left the band.
But listening to this album, I also understand why Natalie had to leave the Maniacs. She had outgrown them, and in this album, she ventures into layers of maturity that the Maniacs never explored. Her music becomes darker, subtler and more personal. Had she stayed with the Maniacs, it is unlikely she could have dragged the band into this kind of territory. It would have been against their natures. After listening to this album, one can sense what Natalie meant when she complained about the constraints of music making by committee.
In Tigerlily, Natalie begins the exploration of the dark places of the soul that she would take so much further in her next album, Ophelia. In so doing, she alienates much of the fan base that followed her from her Maniacs days.
This is music for pensive folks. It doesn't spare the listener any of life's woes. Those expecting more of the upbeat tempos and youthful enthusiasm of the Maniacs will be disappointed. These are songs about the wiles of catastrophe, the death of loved ones, spiritual drift, unrequited love, jealousy, and the disintegration of a marriage. Dark? Yes. Sombre? Very. But also moving, heartfelt and sympathetic.
And, above all, talented. Natalie's voice is rich and vibrant, her song-craft first class, and her musicianship exemplary. Does she skirt excessive sentimentality? Of course she does. Show me a worthy songwriter over the years who hasn't. Such risks are inherent in the kind of emotional territory she wishes to explore.

3.0 out of 5 stars This CD was to low volume.
When I put this CD into the player it is about 3 notches lower than all my others and you have to turn up the volume then down on the next one before it plays.
