I've always thought that people at the top of their game should branch out and try other things, and in this regard I salute Norah. Her soothing, accessible jazzy croons are unequaled, and it is nice that she at times ventures into country music, with results that are acceptable.
So now if Norah wants to experiment she should take up archery or search for the Higgs Boson or something. Norah is no Alanis Morissette, and her attempts at tearful bitterness and heated vengeance result in hackneyed rhyming patterns and monotonous melodies.
I admire you for your effort, Norah, and I hope the process was cathartic. But this one didn't quite come together, so channel your impressive creativity down another avenue next time. And feed us fans another one of your traditional albums once in a while as we cheer you on.
