Editorial Reviews

2007 debut from this singer/songwriter. From waiting tables in NYC to five million You Tube views (and counting), word of mouth has hand-selected her as 2007's ultimate find. The album is written by Terra and produced by Paul Fox (10,000 Maniacs, XTC). A 12-track tour de force of heartbreaking vocals, vibrant melodies and immaculate lyrics, it's another stage of the US chanteuse's inspirational ascent. Featuring string arrangements by David Campbell, Beck's father, it's a truly defiant album that demands attention. Island.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terra Naomi - The Album September 21, 2007
By Paolo
Format:Audio CD
Well, I have to admit that I have come across Terra's music relatively late, late enough not to find all of her previous and never realeased CDs and EPs and demos. So, after I had listened to them with some friends' help, I felt in love with Terra's enchanting world of music. I spent lot of time with her songs on my stereo and now I have a real CD in my hands. She had to reach the UK from the USA to see her songs produced but it's worth it. I don't mind if these songs wear different suits and arrangments on this album. I don't mind if some of them sound more radio friendly. Who cares about it after reaching such a great goal? If you never heard about Terra's music, about her story, take a look at her stuff on Myspace and on YouTube and you won't be disappointed. "Say it's possible" is a masterpiece as well as lots of these songs, such as "Not Sorry", "Up here", "I'm happy", "Something good to show you", etc. Well, it's hard to find my favourite song here and if you agree with me, spread the word to support Terra's music. Unfortunately, if you don't live in the UK you won't be allowed to access the exclusive online content.

5.0 out of 5 stars MERAVIGLIOSA TERRANAOMI October 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Ho scoperto Terranaomi un'anno fa su youtube e ho sperato veramente che arrivasse il giorno in cui avrei potuto comprare il suo CD. Finalmente e' arrivato. Questa cantante e' semplicemente fantastica. Una voce bellissima che accompagna melodie meravigliose e magiche. Una vera artista. Non guasta neanche il fatto che sia anche una ragazza bellissima ma cio' che colpisce piu' di tutto e' la bellezza delle sue canzoni e la magia della sua voce. Da tempo non sentivo una cantautrice cosi'. Wonderful!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terra Naomi's 'Under the Influence' is awesome September 5, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I actually wrote a review of this album for [...]and [...]
. So i'll post that here too.
Sifting through the flowery bells and whistles of Paul Fox's production, Terra Naomi's first widely released album "Under the Influence" delivers on expectations. However, expectations were humble when you consider this singing sensation in the mold of Alanis Morissette and Patty Griffin remains on the outskirts of the mainstream music scene, despite releasing multiple albums prior to this 2007 LP, including her self-titled debut in 2002.
She has created a core fan base by playing clubs, as well as some larger venues, around the world. She has also become a Youtube phenomenon, drawing millions of views. As a singer, songwriter and musician (guitar, piano), her talent is unquestionable. However, the mainstream buzz hasn't been easy to come by.
Again, this record tries to do too much in an attempt to fit the paradigm of pop music instead of showcasing Terra's immaculate voice and beautifully damaged lyrics in simple piano ballads and acoustic tracks as she does in her Youtube videos. Many pop stars need all the extra musical trimmings. With Terra, who is anything but a pop artist, less is more.
"Say It's Possible" sets this regrettable precedent with a cluster of breezy chimes leading into the track, and then returning for the chorus. Since the album's release, Terra has posted an acoustic of "Say It's Possible" that is far superior and truly shines as a stand out single in her arsenal, something that cannot be said for the album version.
These presumed "mood setters" continue until "Flesh For Bones," which appeared on her first album, finally delivers what I was looking for; that is a 5:35-soft-spoken acoustic that allows Terra's voice to shine and swiftly overtake your imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazed I got this! June 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
So I brought this not knowing who Terra was at all...I have to admit it was in the clearence bin and I just couldn't stand the thought of this cool looking cd sitting in there so i purchased...from the second I pressed play I fell in love with this album. The music is well produced, organic, deep and a little pop. Catchy lyrics that actually have depth, well crafted piano (courtesy of terra) swirl through this album.

Fave tracks have to be Not Sorry (I have my own person in mind when I listen to this), fave line is "I've got some words of comfort, she's better off without someone who doesn't want her"

And of cause Vicadin (the hidden track) is god damn brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this! November 16, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this album a while ago and I was never more happy. I never pay more than $10 for a CD, but this one I got from England and paid more than $25. That tells you how good it is. YouTube her and see what she's about. You won't be sorry.
