5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER STEP IN HER ARTISTIC GROWTH, January 5, 2010
This review is from: The Fall (Audio CD)
I asked for this cd for Christmas but was a little unsure about whether I'd like it after reading some of the reviews here. A lot
of people seem to miss the "old Norah", and by that I guess they mean
the young girl with the mellow moody songs on her debut. I loved that
cd but I'm not interested in hearing her repeat that formula over and
over. Do we really need "Don't Know Why Version 23"? I for one have
a lot of respect for Norah. Each album she's recorded has followed
a slightly, SLIGHTLY different path than the one before. This one
knocked me out when I first played it. Her voice is still gorgeous and expressive, the melodies are stronger than ever, the lyrics are
wry, knowing and occasionally funny and the production and tone of
the album are a perfect fit for her style. I wonder if a lot of people bought the first cd as mellow background music and now they're
not sure what happened to their girl? I hate it when musicians do the
same thing over and over, pleasing an ever-dwindling bunch of fans.
I like the sort of alt/indie/whatever-rock style you'd call this. She
sounds to me like someone who is spreading her wings, and I love it.
Listen with an open mind and see if you don't agree. Bravo, Norah.
