5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Album, November 26, 2013
This review is from: Foreverly (Audio CD)
This album is an absolute masterpiece. I am 28 and grew up listening to the oldies and absolutely love the Everly Brothers. I must admit that I am also a huge Green Day fan. I never really got into the Americana and folk genres, but that has not changed thanks to "Foreverly."

Billie and Norah's voice blend beautifully together. While I don't know that anybody will ever be able to match the brilliant harmonies of the Everly Brothers, I actually believe that "Foreverly" hits the nail on the head even more than "Songs Our Daddy Taught Us." I saw this because there is something that the mature voices of Billie and Norah combined with the dark arrangements of the songsadd to the bigger picture of the album...which is the incredibly dark lyrics. When I went back and listened to the Everly Brothers album, it sounded like young adults singing about all this stuff that they were too young to experience. With "Foreverly," you truly get the feeling that Billie and Norah are feeling the pain described in the lyrics. A lot of the songs actually work a lot better with the male/female arrangement.

The closing track, Put My Little Shoes Away, is the standout of the album for me. It is by far the most simple arrangement on the album, with only a minnimal piano accompiament, but the vocals and lyrics are so incredibly powerful.

I am so happy that Billie decided to pursue this project and very happy that he tapped Norah to be his duet partner. Just as he "stumbled upon" the old Everly Brother's album, he has helped me to stumble upon a genre that I really had no interest in prior to "Foreverly."

Your review is so much more effective than 95% of all the others. You touched on the points that matter - at least to me. And I do so agree with your assessment of Put My Little Shoes Away. Such a beautiful, simply complex gem.
