Album Review

On the first two albums by the Story, Jonatha Brooke wrote all the songs, sang lead vocals, and played acoustic guitar. The other half of the Story, Jennifer Kimball, merely sang background vocals. So one might expect that the first Story album without Kimball (and the first with Brooke's name in front of the band's) would not sound that different. But it does, and Kimball's delicately dissonant harmonies are missed. Fortunately, that's not the only thing that's changed. Brooke's melodies are more catchy than ever, and her passionate lyrics plumb the thematic depths of innocence and trust with newfound maturity. The mellow Latin-influenced folk-pop of the Story's past is replaced here with an energetic, glossy full-band pop sound. Brooke's expert backing musicians jump unjarringly from edgy guitar rock to southern Bonnie Raitt-isms to postmodern classical string arrangements.

Customer Reviews

In a sea of female artists, Jonatha Brooke rises to the top

If you haven't had the pleasure of hearing Jonatha, I highly recommend checking her out. Before I go on, yes, you did read that right. Jonatha, not Jonathan as I so often get asked when I tell people about her music. With that out of the way, her songwriting and voice are something endearing to me. You won't find any mass marketing backed by the record lables. Jonatha has gone the way of self promotion on her own label. Also, as some of her older work was done in a group, titled The Story, you will have to look in both places to obtain her entire body of work. And don't let the Folk genre scare you off. Her sound, at times while folk, appeals to more then those fans. If you have ever watched Dawson's Creek, on the WB, one of her songs was featured. Also, in the recent Disney movie, Return to Neverland, she had a featured song titled I'll Try. Definetly give her a listen, you will not be disappointed.

one of my favorites of all time

I NEVER get tired of this cd by this amazing songwriter. If you are new to Jonatha, buy this now and thank me later! I personally recommend "Inconsolable,", "Full=Fledged Strangers" and "Is This All?"...

one of the best

This has got to be one of the best albums of all time. The writing is superb, the vocals and instrumental superb from start to finish. If you've ever had your heart broken "Inconsolable" just reaches down inside and grabs you. I never fails, even years later to bring tears. I find it interesting that iTunes lists this as "folk." Really, the genre is difficult to label, because there are so many different things going on in this. Download it now!!
