Editorial Reviews

2012 release, the fourth album from the acclaimed Canadian singer/songwriter. Produced by Justin Vernon (AKA Bon Iver) and Edwards, Voyageur is less of a departure than it is a journey, and like any transforming trip, it demands that we let go of any preconceptions about the destination. Voyageur evokes a spectrum of overwhelming feelings within the atmosphere of a lucid dream. Edwards' characters speak to the grief, loneliness, shock, and confusion that come with endings as well as the hope and irrepressible joy that accompany new beginnings, but the stories are told with a seductively quiet strength. Aided by the musical support of fellow travelers Justin Vernon and Norah Jones, Voyageur features standout tracks such as "Change the Sheets," "Mint," and "A Soft Place to Land."

This is one great album that works so well together that it is hard for me to listen to just one song. Unlike her past records, this is not roots music, its music with so much texture and feel from the way its presented. The arrangements and the atmosphere of the songs and the sequencing really make this album a delight. With so many people predicting the death of the album, this comes as a wonderful statement that a well conceived album is greater than the sum of its parts. I am a fan of Americana music and Ms. Edwards is known for that. I really loved some of her early material but actually thought her first album was a bit of a disappointment. I did enjoy her last album quite a bit, but for me this change in musical direction has been a hit. I love her voice and the music and arrangements seem to compliment her songs and voice very well. I can say right now that I will not be too surprised if at the end of the year this is my favorite album of 2012. Do yourself a favor and listen to the entire album several times. In my opinion the beauty comes through when its listened to as a single piece. Cheers to KE for making such a wonderful record.

This is physically a beautiful CD. The packaging is gorgeous. The artwork by Darren Booth is really lovely. The music - well, I consider myself kind of a fringe KE fan. I love her voice but don't quite connect with the songs.

Kathleen Edwards has one of the most distinctive voices in popular music - hot and smoky. To me it sounds like she is still trying to find herself as a songwriter and an artist. She is good at the one-liners but I haven't yet found a KE song that I consider great from start to finish. The best songs on this CD are two of the collaborations, Pink Champagne with John Roderick and Sidecar written with Jim Bryson. Sidecar is the liveliest song on the album, and it is perfectly placed, just when I was beginning to think the whole thing was a little sleepy.

Most of the buzz around this album revolves around the fact that it is co-produced by Justin Vernon AKA Bon Iver, KE's current significant other. I hear his influence particularly in Pink Champagne - in fact, I read a quote by KE that if it wasn't for him, she would have given up on the song and it would not have appeared on the CD. That would have left a definite hole to fill - there are only 10 songs on the finished product. Vernon plays on most of the tracks, sings on a few, and unmistakably leaves his imprint on the overall sound of the album. Edwards has moved away from the alt-country sound of her earliest albums, into a Bon-Iver-like gauzy landscape. I think it suits her. I am not totally in love with this CD yet, but I expect it will grow on me. Definitely worth a listen, and a look - really one of the prettiest CDs I have ever seen.

Have been looking forward to this release and it does not disappoint.

I was a little surprised that it is such a change from her earlier albums - much more polished and produced than I had expected.

However, the lyrics, some of the tunes and just the way it sounds overall leaves it with sufficient ties to the past to please long time fans while hopefully opening the door to a lot of new fans.

Overall it is definitely Kathleen Edwards and it is a great evolution. She deserves all the success that this new album will hopefully bring her.

This is a good album. But it is different, she is leaving her slight country sound behind. The general feel of the songs are most definitely Kathleen Edwards, but slicker and with a little less of a rock edge.

If you like KE, you'll like this as well. I prefer her previous albums, but this one is still a keeper.

Well, this is a big leap forward for Edwards. The only other album I have is "Failer" from 2003. While I liked the album I wouldn't go so far as to call it great. This one is. Edwards voice is still soft and sweet as I'm sure she is, but aided by Bon Iver himself, Justin Vernon, some new punch has been added. Famed bassist John Dinsmore and singer Norah Jones add to the mix. Vernon is all over the place, playing what ever is left over. My favorite track is "Change the Sheets." This is good stuff.

I HAD to get this album after hearing Kathleen Edwards on the radio program Wits. She was a guest together with Tig Notaro. Both her music and voice are excellent, I'm looking forward to wearing out these MP3 tracks listening to them over and over.

Kathleen Edwards can do no wrong in my book. Her lyrics are honest and draw me in.
Her music is simple and complex and acoustic and on this album they bring in new sounds.
I love this cd!!! I had it on repeat for quite sometime. After having met her after one show
here in Detroit i can tell she is incredibly nice and a bit of a potty mouth. Witch I dig!!

Kathleen Edwards latest album just doesn't live up to the last three, which I really enjoy. Sure, there are two really nice, catchy tracks but that is it. I can listen to Asking for Flowers over and over again (and I have) without it getting old. Just 3/4 the way through this CD I turned it off, not sure if I will give it a second spin. Maybe she has said all she has needed to with Flowers, Failer and Back to Me? Or maybe I have changed? She gets 2 stars just because I respect her previous work so much. A quick note on the recording: playing this through a very hi-end system, the recording is a bit harsh and compressed sounding. Sure, most rock and pop doesn't really sound all that great as compared to say a good jazz recording, but I don't recall Asking for Flowers sounding this bad. For new fans, go straight to Asking for Flowers and Failer, you won't be disappointed.

Edited 2/17/2012: Ok, it's growing on me....added a star - still not her best work....
