This is definitely not where I thought it would go. In an age of jaded pop artists, I couldn't blame her for going more mainstream by playing for a different market. However, Elephants is a journey into a mature, darker place within her heart, tingling with being jaded and aching to show a different side of her.
Elephants definitely warrants a second listen through, if not to appreciate what she's done: Instead of diverting herself to the mainstream, she's turned inward to become an artist and a musician. I get the feeling that I'll be listening to this more than Happenstance.
Musicians like Rachael Yamagata don't come across very often, and I can't wait to see where she goes next.
Now you have.
`Elephants' starts off the album with a bold and blunt outlook from this fragile looking creature. Her outer beauty is offset by her inner melancholy; both facets of her person elevating the other to create something truly beautiful to comprehend. Speaking of haunted past lives and blood-soaked jaws, Yamagata paints a vivid picture that one will not soon forget; and the instrumental version that appears in the center of the album only brings those memories back to life, full force. `Sunday Afternoon' may seem daunting at nearly ten minutes long, but don't be afraid; the track never wanes and is one of the best on the album. With a delicate introduction that leads way to a robust center, warming up to a fragile conclusion, `Sunday Afternoon' is a brilliant track that is the definition of a `full circle' or `complete' song.Read more ›

She is so amazing. Her voice is so different than anyone else I have ever heard. Worth every penny and you should check out her other CD'sPublished on March 2, 2013 by Cazbaz
It works fine, but it came with soft cover (paper cover).
I am not sure it is official CD from the company...
In the middle of the CD, there is gap.
I couldn't be happier! This CD is amazing and exceeded largely my expectations. It's one of the few CD's in which I love every song. I'm totally blown away by Rachael's voice!Published on October 16, 2012 by eamv
