Editorial Reviews

Catching A Tiger, predominantly recorded with producer Jacquire King in Nashville, TN, is every bit the vibrant debut promised by last fall's Why You Runnin' EP, which introduced the heartland native, California transplant Lissie. Why You Runnin' amasses praise from Paste, Nylon, Filter, Marie Claire, Bust and The Boston Globe just to name a few. Catching A Tiger and it's advance In Sleep EP have already been earning rave reviews for this young songwriter across the pond in the UK (where the album released June 21st), with coverage in The Sun, The Sunday Times, The Mirror, The Big Issue and on the BBC. Lissie's UK press run was capped off last month with a transcendent performance of the hymn-like 'Oh Mississippi' on the legendary Live with Jools Holland. Catching A Tiger also follows her 10-shows-in-4-days sprint at this year's SXSW festival, a run that caught the attention of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Perez Hilton and Aquarium Drunkard, among others.

FINALLY! And yes it does deserve all caps. This album is so refreshing because the songs are so original and they are written so well. I agree with the previous reviewer in that she sounds kind of like Fleetwood Mac. I loved that group early on. But its not really her voice but the almost orchestral building to a crescendo of the songs that remind me of them. Only a few other bands, that I've heard, have this quality. I think of early U2 and Coldplay. I have some classical training and it is so great to hear modern music with actual quality to it. Buy this album!

Lyrically, tonally, and musically this album is one of the best I have heard in a while. It doesn't do much in terms of reinventing the genre, but Lissie breaths new life into the alt-rocker chick scene. She brings such a passionate resonance to her performance, that you can't help but feel yourself being affected.

In all honesty, this album speaks for itself. Just lay back in the sun with your headphones on and bathe in her warmth.

Listening to Lissie's major label debut is a familiar experience, in that she's not the first artist to surrender the organic qualities of her roots in the process of aiming for a larger audience. Where her debut EP, Why You Runnin', turned deeply confessional moments into arresting outbursts of emotion, her follow-up feels forcedly written, sung and played. Where the debut offered the studio as a space in which Lissie could be heard singing, the album is filled with placeless overproduction that, aside from the quality of Lissie's voice, sounds disappointingly like other pop records on the market. The edginess that made Lissie's earlier vocals so magnetic is lost here as she's forced to compete with gratuitously busy arrangements; it feels as if the producers didn't trust her voice to keep listeners' attention.

The double-tracked "Stranger" does provide a clever modern twist on Buddy Holly and Bobby Fuller, but it's only a moment's respite from the album's banal guitar solos and pop-rock arrangements. The minutes of deep artistic accomplishment belong to the songs brought forward from the EP: "Little Lovin'," "Everywhere I Go" and "Oh Mississippi." On these, Lissie's voice is riveting, the arrangements build tension rather than volume, and the instruments create atmosphere rather than distracting complexity. Lissie's moving, gospel-based homage to the mother river is perfectly set to a sparse arrangement of piano, chorus and distant tambourine, and the spine-tingling emotion shot into lyrics like "danger will follow me, now, everywhere I go" are unmatched by any of the newer performances.

My wife borrowed this CD from a friend & promptly lost it, so we had to order a copy for him. Got it through Amazon, so got an instant download as well. Although the album is not really our style, I have to say that it is a good Pop album. She has an awesome voice that is kind of mesmerizing and without the too often heard vocal acrobatics. The woman is good. If you like pop music, you won't go wrong with this album.

Never heard of her until I caught her performance on Guitar Center Sessions a few weeks ago. If you can get that I strongly recommend it; it's great! She has a powerful, supple and beautiful voice and an excellent band. The album captures that. I plan to buy her 2nd album and will watch for more. (Can you tell I'm a fan?)

My dad loves Stevie Knicks, Fleetwood Mac and other soft rock, I ordered this CD for him for father's day this year because I knew he'd like her, he did! The CD arrived super fast. I love turning people on to new artists. Lissie has a great voice and almost every song on this album is great. Her music appeals to all genders and ages too

This is a perfect example of how the big record labels like Sony/Columbia ruin music. Lissie's first EP release "Why you runnin" was on an obscure label and was hauntingly beautiful and filled with amazing vocals and a raw unprocessed acoustic sound. Truly something very special. So she get's noticed by Sony and they obviously feel she will sell better as a more mainstream pop artist. This is a very good pop recording and Lissie manages to make the pop offerings on this recording very good indeed, but the best songs on this recording by far are the songs that came from her original EP. The big record labels have been ruining music since the 1980's and while it has gotten better with all the indie label competition, they continue to do their formula approach to record making that mostly turns out garbage. This is a very good recording, but it could have been world class had Lissie added 5 more songs with the same style as her original EP. Go listen and judge for yourself.
