Editorial Reviews

This collection reveals a woman settling into her role as a solo artist, peeling back some of the layers of her last album ("11:11") to reveal a more organic sound. "Lynn Teeter Flower" mixes together soaring guitars, bubbly electronics, feathery farfisa organs, and sugary layers of vocals into the sweetest confection of an album you'll hear all year. Taylor's voice is as smooth and sweet as honey, spinning marvelous, insightful tales of the world around us with much aplomb.

Maria Taylor's 11:11 is one of my favorite albums. So I had was a bit worried Lynn Teeter Flower wouldn't live up to my hopes.

I went to see the Taylors play last week at southpaw in Brooklyn and this was my first introduction to her new songs.

To be honest, I am not crazy about the whole album, but it is growing on me.

From the start, I love the tracks "smile and wave", "clean getaway", "small part of me", "replay".

Maria's voice is so beautiful, her lyrics are precious, the whole experience of listening to her music is captivating and in a way, chilling.

If you have a chance, go see her play live, it is an amazing experience.

I would say definitely by "11:11". If you fall in love with that album, buy this one as well.

The simplicity and gorgeous melody of Maria Taylor's music is not to be denied! You can really hear her stretching here, too. She actually SINGS now, as opposed to the gentle croon of her earlier music. I ADORE this disc. The emotional standout here is definately "Clean Getaway" OH WOW. "A Good Start" is such a LIFTING track, and it's title seems more than appropriate.
I would have actually rated this 4 1/2 stars, because i feel that the slight rap in "Irish Goodbye" is ill-advised at best. The dude has a clean flow, it just feels a bit planned, you know?
"My Own Fault" is another gem that comes to mind here. This album is much more focused than Maria'a solo debut, 11:11, another gorgeous slice of goodness. Get it. Now.
thank you Maria, for sharing your voice.

this is my introduction to Maria Taylor, besides the bg vocals with bright eyes.... and i don't want to turn this record off. i can just let it play and play and play.

this is a record full of atmosphere, emotion (but not slushy), and fun. it is fun and melancholy all at the same time- the record contains variety, but is consistent. folk to trip-hop. just good music.

enjoy. i am.

::: this is for fans of portishead / beth gibbons, over the rhine, and beth orton

I was recently introduced to Maria Taylor when Paste magazine included her song "A Good Start" on a recent CD sampler that comes with each month's issue. I purchased the Lynn Teeter Flower album as a result of the sample tune, and I was not disappointed.

"Good Start" is easily the best pop song that I have heard this year, and really, there is not a bad song on the album. Maria has a terrific voice: clear, sometimes haunting, and the songs (all written or co-written by her) have great lyrics. I do agree with a previous reviewer that the rap bit is not needed in "Irish Goodbye," the song is strong enough to stand on its own and would be excellent without it. (So, make my rating 4 1/2 stars instead of five, too.)

The last track, and the album's title "song," is actually a recording of Maria as a child and is a bit fun.

Bottom line: one of the best albums of 2007.
