I highly recommend this disc with the caveat that it will take some time to get used to.
W. McNavage
The rest of her many talents are well represented as she explores jazzy arrangements, sultry torch songs, and intricate rhythms that pull you into the music.
Allan Gilbreath
So few CD's can you listen to start to finish, you will find yourself playing this whole CD over and over again.

Based on the style of her latest release "Wilderness", it sounds like Sophie has begun a new, happy chapter in life. Songs are bright, rhythms are crisp, and instrumentation is clean (no distorted guitars). She sings in her upper octave register the way she did for much of "Whaler".
Of course, the downside is that you don't get to hear the angst and grit that defined most of "Timbre" and "Tongues and Tails". The Wilderness Sophie doesn't use profanity, nor does she scream, nor does she whisper provocatively, nor does she shred a mean electric guitar, nor does she explode on the drum set. This is the kinder, gentler Sophie.

A VJ on MTV once quoted Sophie B. Hawkins as saying, "I don't know where my music is going". This was circa the release of her 1992 debut album "Tongues and Tails". That set sported material like none other - it was complex ,layered and rich, yet at the same time defiant of genre classification, but it was for all intents and purposes considered pop. Then she made what most considered a sleekly produced "pop" record "Whaler" and ostensibly was mapping a path with her sophomore release,however for all its pop inclinations, there were modern-jazz leanings on "Sometimes I See" - ahead of her time then and even now despite the overwhelming success of the less-musically inclined Norah Jones and Diana Krall.
1999's "Timbre" represented a huge step: the album sported songs such as "Bare The Weight of Me" and "Nocturne" which were not merely jazz-tinged, but modern-jazz numbers, and for all of "Whaler" and its sleek production the set "Timbre" as a whole was earthier and more about live instrumentation. She even started to delve into rockier atmospheres on "Help Me Breathe" and more notably, "The One You Have Not Seen" - a trend which can be felt on her latest release "Wilderness".
"Wilderness" is an apt title for multiple reasons. The set represents the gamut of Sophie's musical leanings without being merely tinged with any one style in any one track. It is a happy curiosity that despite an overwhelming presence of traditional and radio-friendly material, Hawkins seems the most alive and raw as she has ever sounded on any of her previous releases.

About a year ago, I saw Sophie live and she talked about how sweet cantaloupe would come out around Christmas of 2003, and then with several delays and a title change, wilderness formerly known as 'sweet cantaloupe' emerged.
I admit the production is glossy and sometimes Sophie stretches her voice too far, but as a final package, it works. It works in the same way that Whaler workes (my favorite Sophie album) and for that I am happy. I love jazz/pop infusions, and so what if she worked with the Berman Brothers. They created a largly jazz glossy pop infusion. Sophie said people were going to hate the album because it has a glossy sound. Again, it works overall and the finished product at first listen was filled with skepticism from yours truly.
I found myself humming Beautiful Girl for weeks prior to the release practically biting my nails to the bone to hear the rest of the album. My first listen was depressing because I was hoping to hear orgasmic delights such as Damn, or another Right Beside You (thank you Stephen Lipson for this amazing track by the way) or even downright intense tracks such as The Darkest Childe. I didn't put it away...I love Sophie and she has been such a constant in my car, my house and on my iPOD, so how could I possibly dislike this album??
Well, after many listens, I fell hopelessly in love, and I think that is the key to truly connecting with this disc: multiple listens. I didn't just want to hum along to Beautiful Girl anymore, I want to scream it out loud, I wanted to feel Adrienne and SweetSexyWoman, sing along to Walking on Thin Ice, make love to Feelin' High and Soul Lover, and just be left speechless by Angel of Darkness....and ultimately get lost in Sophie's music.

If you are a fan of adult contemporary music, then Sophie B. Hawkins' "Wilderness" is the CD you have been looking for. For fans of her first CD "Tongues and Tails" there is "Beautiful Girl" complete with a great dance beat and that silky smooth voice. For "Whaler" fans, there is "Open Up Your Eyes" featuring Sophie's ability to deliver lighter vocals with power and clarity. The rest of her many talents are well represented as she explores jazzy arrangements, sultry torch songs, and intricate rhythms that pull you into the music. My favorite cut is the light and bouncy "Meet Me on a Rooftop". It elegantly showcases all the reasons we love Sophie's music: clever lyrics, catchy beat, and that fabulous voice.

Wilderness is such a great cd. Sophie is an amazing artist, wonderful to watch live, and it's always a given her cds are going to rock. You won't be disappointed if you pick this one up. The songs Blue and Open your eyes are awesome. I must have listened to Open your eyes on repeat for hours when I first got the cd, it's such a cute, special song.
Sophie's doing her thing on what seems to be her terms and sharing it with the world. Lucky us. Don't miss out on this collection, it's AWESOME.
