Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

With Wicked Little High, a familiar face looks set to become a familiar voice. A busy actress with a long list of credits--including a recurring role on The West Wing--Kathleen "Bird" York had a bit part in best picture winner Crash. More significantly, she wrote and performed the Oscar-nominated theme song "In the Deep" (an honor shared with co-writer Michael Becker). There's more where that mesmerizing number came from on the striking redhead's seductive Narada debut. Take the title track, for instance, in which York can't resist the charms of a Mr. Wrong who's like "the fifth drink before a long drive home," but "desire is such a wicked little high when the one you want is blind to you." Sounding like Sia's sexy older sister, York wraps her smoky alto around 11 other tales of lust and loss, including the Isaac Hayes-penned r&b classic "Hold On, I'm Coming"--a top 10 hit for Sam & Dave--here reinvented as blue-eyed soul with a trip-hop beat. On other tracks, she assumes the voice of a teenage runaway in the grips of young love ("Open Wider") and an elderly widow grappling with loneliness ("Save Me"). A revamped version of 2003's The Velvet Hour ("Freedom" and "Hold On" replace "Haunting You" and "Never Gonna Find Us"), Wicked Little High features contributions from producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchell, Peter Gabriel) and guitarist Steve Caton (Tori Amos). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensual and healing . . . March 6, 2006
By hr
Format:Audio CD
Whether you heard Bird York's song "In the Deep" in the film "Crash", or saw her perform the song live at the Academy Awards - do yourself a favor and check out this CD. You will absolutely not be disappointed. Bird's music is both sophisticated and at the same time quite sensual. There is also a meditative and even healing quality to many of the songs which I think is why director Paul Haggis chose "In the Deep" to play such a pivotal role in his film.

Two quick notes: - While the song is also featured on the excellent Crash soundtrack CD by Mark Isham - the advantage to this CD is that you'll discover that "In the Deep" is not a just a fluke but rather just one of many incredible songs by Ms. York.

Secondly - many of the songs appearing on this CD also appear on her previous CD "The Velvet Hour", which from what I've read was sort of an earlier version of this CD that she released prior to signing with a proper label. Bottom line - if you want to check out Bird's music - I would definitely start with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Wait to Buy This March 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I had it on my wish list for a couple of weeks before ordering it. That's time I lost with this beautiful music. I love this CD- I'm listening to it over and over. Sultry, smooth vocals, resonating lyrics. The transitions are well done too, you're taken for a ride on a beautiful wave of emotion and harmony. You should have this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFUL MUSIC June 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Truly there are no words to describe the bliss I feel when I listen to Bird York. Discovering her was the loveliest musical thing to happen to me in a long time. I always advise people to listen. She is an incredibly talented woman. Keep on making the music for us Bird, I can't get enough of it!!! The movie CRASH is what brought me to her music but I now own all of her albums. Do not miss them!

If you haven't had a chance to buy this album, do yourself a favor and do so. This is one CD you can play from beginning to end, over and over, and each time find yourself discovering something new about each song. So glad she included the lyrics in the jacket.

Bird York has one of the most soothing voices I've heard, which reaches the depths of your heart, the most profoundly touching writing and a beautiful blend of instruments that make this CD a perfect Lounge CD. If you have found yourself taken away by the song In the Deep, from the movie Crash, you know what I mean.

Of course, In the Deep is one of the many songs in this album that will take you into a world you may, and at the same time, may not know.

My favorites here, besides In the Deep, are:

Track 2 - Remedy - Makes you want to take a long drive along the country roads. Love the acoustic guitar in this piece. The lyrics alone will make you think of that special someone...

Track 3 - Wicked Little High --- Oh haven't we all been there. The lyrics will make you smile and think of that one Mr. or Ms. Wrong in your life: "You're a wrong turn/a big fat No/you're the fifth drink before a long drive home...the bars to my cage, you're all I think about everyday..." A must listen to. You'll find yourself singing that one quite a bit.

Track 9 - Lovely Thing - Perfect song for those of us who have been filled with the wonderful gift of love. She couldn't describe the feeling better: "....I'm bursting with everything.../Love is filling me up/it's taking the edges off my heart../I'm floating just like a leaf in its stream..." A hymn to being in cloud 9.

Track 10 - Come be with me -- Talk about setting the one you love free (hopefully so they come back).

5.0 out of 5 stars CD gets heavy rotation in my CD player June 13, 2006
By Sonsfan
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD (from CD Baby) when it was originally released as The Velvet Hour. Soon afterwards, I bought Bird's earlier self-titled CD. Lyrics aside, Bird's voice and the melodies of the tracks are hypnotic, soulful and sultry. I can't hear enough of it. I'm glad that the extended version of In The Deep (from the Crash soundtrack) exposed Bird's talent and music to so many more people.

This CD is definitely my "desert island disc."

5.0 out of 5 stars Sultry, dynamic, beautiful singer! March 6, 2006
Format:Audio CD
For many years now, I have raved to everyone I know about Bird York. When I heard her sing live, she became my favorite singer of all time.

Bird's poetry is very thought provoking and inspiring. She is truly a story teller, which is proven by the song, "Save Me" alone. This song speaks to what happens when you are with someone for many years, you are old, and your mate dies and leaves you alone. How do you act?

"Had a dream," is a wonderful work of poetry. Here are a few words from that song: "I had a dream that our hearts were like flowers opening up, everytime that we love. And I'm wondering if we just try and risk everything for love how can we ever go wrong."

You will never "go wrong" with a Bird York cd purchase. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond skin deep June 12, 2006
By Tony G
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I will be honest, I hadn't heard of Bird York until the oscars. I heard a voice that was rich and meaningful. I went on Amazon and bought Wicked Little High and her first cd. I listened thinking well maybe one song is cool. Boy, was I wrong. It has stayed in my cd player since. I think she is among one of the most beautiful women alive but her appeal is beyond all that. If you actually listen, she is very honest and sincere in her lyrics. I like to sit at night and listen to this smokey and sexy voice for hours, Michelob Ultra in hand by candlelight.

Bird, keep the good music coming. I love you!
