"Are you Happy Now" unfortunately may not have been the best single to kick the album off with. Not to say that the track isn't a great one, but it simply doesn't correspond with the feel of the album. The The kick-off single may give the wrong indication of what this album is about. The album is practically pop perfection...her debut album being an incredibly good one (tracks such "You Get Me" and "I'd Rather Be In Love" being outstanding pop songs), but her sophomore album is Michelle Branch at her best.
It's too bad she hasn't out another album since this one...
Here is my track to track review:
1. Intro---she could've chosen something better then circus music, but whatever.
2. Are You Happy Now---very good song, but not the right choice for a kick off single unfortunately. The strong is assertive and powerful, without being pretentious.
3. Find My Way Back---good, but not a great track. It's a good filler.
4. Empty Handed---delicious song, one of the best tracks on the album. It's something you would walk around Central Park listening to.
5. Tuesday Morning---GORGEOUS, gorgeous, gorgeous song. This is especially true three-fourths into the song when Michelle's voice soars with the song.
6. One of These Days---the weakest track on the album.
7. Love Me Like That---not a bad song, but not a great song either. Sheryl Crowe and her do a good job trying to save the song, but it doesn't exactly work.
8. Desparately---another great song...simple, but honest.
9. Breathe---what can I say about this song that hasn't already been said? The song is such a picker-upper, it's ridiculous. It's definitely one of the best tracks on the album.
10. Where Are You Now?---a good song, definitely high quality album filler.
11. Hotel Paper---ironically enough, the second to weakest track on the album. It's like a bad diary entry...not to mention a boring one.
12. Til I get Over You---this is the best track on the album. It's absolutely beautiful...it barely beats Tuesday Morning as the best track. You listen to this track, and all you wanna do is cry over you x boyfriend or girlfriend.
13. It's You--right up there with Tuesday Morning/Till I Get Over You/Breathe...this is such a gorgeous way to end the album...it's just her voice, a guitar, and the beautiful melody.
