Keep Changing and Growing, KE,
This review is from: Voyageur (Audio CD)
I wasn't sure what to expect four years after the excellent "Asking for Flowers", but "Voyageur" was worth the long wait. Much has been made of the album's production values and less-rocking nature. I'm fine with both. I think the production on Kathleen's first two records wasn't up to the level of "Asking for Flowers" and "Voyageur." As good as "Failer" and "Back to Me" were, I thought some of the songs needed a little something extra.
And if "Voyageur" is missing stereo-crankers like "Six O'Clock News" and "Back to Me", that's OK. She's already done them, and they'll always be there to listen to. No need to shoehorn similar-sounding songs on this album if she felt there wasn't a place for them.
"Voyageur" is an outstanding album, and I'll be curious to see where she goes from here. I just hope it won't take another four years.
