iTunes Review

Singer/songwriter Kathleen Edwards moves beyond roots-rock on her fourth release. Lush production and a full, robust sound give Voyageur a different scope and feel than her previous work, with her usual stripped-down arrangements replaced by layers of organ, tremolo guitars, and thick vocal harmonies. Her songwriting is equally ambitious. There’s palpable weariness in these songs but also a desire for catharsis. The delicate “A Soft Place to Land” and “House Full of Empty Rooms” deal directly with heartbreak, while the music's urgency in “Chameleon/Comedian” and “Going to Hell” contrast the vulnerable vocals. The forlorn “Pink Champagne” features hazy ambient noise, the orchestral “Change the Sheets” builds to a full-blown chorus, and “Sidecar” and “Mint” come closest to the guitar-based Americana she’s best known for. Coproduced by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon, Voyageur does carry some trademarks of his sound (namely the sonic density), yet it’s clearly Edwards’ show.

Genius!

awesome!!

every track is amazing!

Good Album

I gonna state from the get go that I'm no fan of Bon Iver, and his production here, at times, can be a little overbearing with a few exceptions(Change The Sheets being one of them , where it really works for this particular song), but enough of Kathleen's trademark style and sound come through to keep mr happy. This album is good, but to me from a production standard, Failer, Back To Me, and Asking For Flowers are great albums, whereas Voyageur is good.

And for the record rigger417, no question Colin Cripps is the man, except he nowhere on this album! Kathleen and Colin split 2 years ago, and Bon Iver is here current boyfriend. Hence why she has jokingly referred to Voyageur as her "divorce" album. Go back and listen the lyrics on most of the songs, pretty evident there. It's about their split. The guitar work is than of Jim Byrson and Bon Iver.
