7 Songs, 28 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Breaking the album cycle with a batch of seven songs recorded over a year, Norah Jones makes up for the relative brevity with variety, collaborating with Jeff Tweedy, Thomas Bartlett (Doveman), and others on the multifaceted Begin Again. While bluesy piano and soulful singing remain the core of everything Jones does, the opening ballad “My Heart is Full” stands in stark contrast to the swagger of “Begin Again,” the bare-bones folk of “A Song with No Name,” and the spacey jazz flourishes of “Just a Little Bit.” Though not quite the length of a typical album, this set hangs together, thanks to each song sharing the assured intimacy of a lullaby.

Oh Norah

People call this boring. I call it amazing. She’s always made the most relaxing, spiritual music ever..

Transcends time

The voice of the last 20 years has gotten better and better! Her popularity has gained more and more attention as the age of humanity moved forth. Within the grandiose age of social media human disconnect and millennial entitlement there is a tiny glimpse of hope left...it is found within the music and soul of Nora Jones! We will begin to see major shifts and polarity as the taste of music swings back and forth, her experimentation with sounds perfects itself through evolution and moods. It is the authenticity of the music that integrates all that is awareness of nature soul awakening! Get this amazing album now!!!

As wonderful a voice as Norah has, the album is not cohesive at all
