I've been a Mindy Smith fan since her first CD. Preordered this one based on her previous releases. The first track, What Went Wrong, is a disaster......it is distorted and seems to be mastered at an excessively high volume level (compression????). Mindy's previous CDs were beautiful in their simplicity. This one is sometimes over-produced and Mindy's wonderful vocals sometimes get pushed back in the mix.....with ?drum machines? and other unneeded racket in the forefront. This recording style, which worked great for Beth Orton's "Daybreaker", produced by the Chemical Brothers, sometimes falls flat on this CD.

That being said, there are five tracks on "Stupid Love" I'll be keeping on my playlist:

1. If I Didn't Know Any Better
2. Telescope
3. Surface
4. Disappointed
5. True Love of Mine

Mindy, if you read this, it's your voice we love. Please let it be the lead instrument on future releases and think about going back to your earlier recording style. Or, try recording with the Chemical Brothers so this style of music is done well.

I'm a huge HUGE Mindy fan and think this is her best work yet. I think I already know all the lyrics to this new album and it's only been out one day. I hear her music in my sleep! She is so talented and her music speaks to me like no other artist. My favorite track is "Surface" - I just GET it! If you love a truly talented artist with lyrics that are simple but deep, she's the one man!

I have received (download) and played Mindy Smith's "Stupid Love" many times, on the computer and while riding in the car. I would give it between 4 1/2 to five stars. I would have sequenced the tracks differently; and I wish the 1st and last track had better previewed and retrospected the other 10 tracks of the CD. Having said that, let me assure you that Tracks 2-12, beginning with "Highs And Lows" all the way through "True Love Of Mine" are among the best I've ever heard on any CD, anytime, anywhere. What I love about them, besides the songwriting and vocalizing, is that the are perfectly "seasoned," production-wise. Too much production, as you know, can overpower a song -- just like too much seasoning can overpower the taste of food. These songs are produced -- excellently seasoned -- as well as any you will hear. You will absolute LOVE them! Of course, her lyrics (which stick like velcrow in your mind) and her vocals (incredible -- hard to characterize accurately but so easy to enjoy and adore) occupy front and center stage. Plus, you will personally identify with what she is communicating. She's spot-on when it comes to painting a picture of life in a fallen world where stupid love is more fact than fiction. You will feel both the hurt and the hope in each song. I cannot honestly tell you with any degree of accuracy just how excellent tracks 2-12 are. In fact, those songs are all nothing short of amazing. Is it worth buying / downloading? Yes and Yes! BOTH! Support this young lady! She's special -- a national treasure!

If you purchased Mindy's first 2 CDs, you are familiar with her gifts. Her 3rd CD "Stupid Love" will not dissapoint. Mindy brings up the tempo on several tracks and seems to have a bigger sound. If you are a Mindy Smith fan this will be an easy purchase.

I've been a fan of Mindy Smith's since 2006 when I first heard her song "Falling" on Smallville and ever since the folk/country singer has had a profound affect on my tastes in music. I don't like folk music. I don't like country. Yet somehow, I love Mindy Smith. It seems you either don't know about this artist at all, or you completely love her.
In her first outing, One Moment More, the thing that grabbed me was the sadness and longing and love showcased in the lyrics, but also accompanied by some extremely moving and original melodies. I didn't find I related quite as much with her second album, Long Island Shores, but after a dozen or so listens I'll grant it still has a touch of what makes Smith's music so relateable. I don't want to include My Holiday in this grouping as it's not 100% original.
I was excited long before Stupid Love was released. Ever since 2007 I kept checking up on the websites to see when she would be releasing any new material. When Stupid Love did finally appear, I downloaded the song "Telescope" first, something which strikes me as ironic now given it's my favourite track on the album.
Somehow, Mindy has managed to take what amazing originality she had from her first album, add a lot more colour and wonder, take out a little bit of the sadness, replace it with beauty, and has released it to the world. I love this album. Every few years an album comes along that you're able to listen to from start to finish without stopping. This is one of them. I just like the style, and the path the music goes down. The melodies are so incredibly attractive it's a wonder Smith isn't more famous, and the lyrics aren't just lyrics either. They're stories about, well, love that may sound silly to others, but means a lot to the individual.

I've been a fan since Mindy's first release and I have loved every one. "Stupid Love" is no exception. She has become one of my favorite artists. The voice of an Angel who can stir deep emotions in the listener. My favorite tracks are "If I Didn't Know Any Better", "Love Lost", "Couldn't Stand The Rain" and "Surface".

I do admit the sound quality is a bit more muddy than the others, but that hasn't stopped me from loving this disc.
