Album Review

There was an eight-year gap between the first and second solo albums by Jennifer Kimball, and Oh Hear Us was actually recorded about a couple of years prior to its early 2006 release. It doesn't sound rusty, however; it's literate, versatile, accomplished singer/songwriter music. Those who view her as a continuation of classic performers in the style such as Joni Mitchell will find much to latch on to in that direction, both in Kimball's sophisticated vocal phrasing and the occasionally jazzy flavors. Kimball's also committed to incorporating eclectic instrumentation, though for all the dozen-plus instruments listed in the credits, there's a pretty consistent easy-on-the-ear mild rock flavor throughout the record (albeit with some rootsy folk and country accents). Like many records in this genre, there's an earnest dedication to its tone, but there's a lighter, more winsome quality than the typical such effort in the style. While it's not exactly poppy, songs such as "Is He or Isn't He" boast some respectable bittersweet, country-shaded hooks.

Customer Reviews

Hear This Album

I reviewed Jennifer Kimball's first album, Veering From the Wave, for the Wall Street Journal eight years ago and felt back then that she was one of the most lyrically intelligent and compelling female vocalists around. Her second album is equally compelling and but more musically provocative. She still sings about love, live, death and now, in this most recent release, faith broadly expressed with great insight, humor and modesty. In this regard she is in class by herself and far better than other excellent performers such as Dar Williams, Beth Orton and Anna Nalick. Her music is a gift that should be shared widely.

an inspiration

I have been a fan of jennifer's since she and Jonatha Brooke were in The Story together. The harmonies, melodies, lyrics of that duo are still present in this cd and in Veering from the Wave, two of my absolute favorite albums. Jennifer Kimball is an absolute inspiration to me as a songwriter and as a singer myself. This album is incredible and I recommend it to everyone I know...


I can't stop listening to "Don't take your love away". How can a song say so much? There is a person's entire life in this song. You can take a long road trip with this entire CD as your only friend for days. Or just take a walk around the block with one song. I recommend taking the walk in Somerville, MA.
