The album is very reminsiscent of a music box -- amuisc box for women in a noir story. A music box for babes in a contemporary wood. Basically, these are lullabies for grown-ups. Wistful, insightful, haunting, and so eerily *true*. "Beautiful" is one of the real-est songs I've ever heard.
Eleni Mandell is a genius, a genius swimming in the sweet syrup of the warm and gooey sauce of awesomeness. OK, let me state at the outset that I am a big fan. I love ALL her previous albums, but Miracle of Five is now my favorite. I've always been awed by Ms. Mandell's way of mixing sharp insights with soft, visceral imagery. Her lyrics and singing are always so incredibly evocative. She also has an uncanny way of articulating and illuminating things I've thought and felt. Her music is full of wonderful melodies and hooks and resonance. Her lyrics are incredible. Her voice is nimble and expressive and sultry and smart and sassy.
"Moonglow, Lamp Low" feels like my soul's theme song. "Girls" makes me think Eleni has read my mind (again). "WIngs in His Eyes"a nd the title track perfectly express how I feel about my new sweetheart. And "Perfect Stranger" -- been there. I could go on and on.
Suffice it to say this is a great album with great songs and atmospheric music that perfectly fits her lyrics and voice. Trust me; get it. Seriously. You'll love it.
If you like a bluesy, sultry, country, exotic voice that is remuniscent of the sixties, with an original slant- this is the album for you.
Waited six weeks to get it locally, gave up, recieved it at my door in four days from Amazon at the same price. Am I happy? You bet.

It's easy to dismiss this disc as pop or jazz or some other category on first listen, but upon second or third time round quite a few nuances appear. Read morePublished on June 13, 2007 by Taoist Monk Yunrou
