iTunes Review

Madeline Peyroux's Careless Love has the feel of an after-hours speakeasy in full swing: As Peyroux croons Leonard Cohen’s “Dance Me to the End of Love,” you can easily imagine a smoky scene, with couples sashaying to its folk-jazz sway. Arriving eight years after her debut, the album, with its covers-heavy tracklist, is all the richer for her interim stint busking in Paris: Her striking, snare-brushed take on Elliott Smith’s “Between the Bars” could stop even the most hurried passersby dead in their tracks.

Still the Best of Madeleine Peyroux

If Billie Holliday time-traveled through the 20th century, mingled with Bob Dylan, borrowed from Leonard Cohen, cavorted with Frank Sinatra, and spoke French, the musical effect would be something like Madeleine Peyroux.

If you like jazz and any of those names I mentioned, listen to her, and start by getting this album. Her voice is interesting, her back-up band has its own flavor of jaunty and sad, and her taste in lyricists is impeccable.

If there is a criticism to be had of “Careless Love” it’s that Madeleine and the band maintain the same mood over too many tracks, leaving many songs drifting somewhere between ennui and rainy-day happiness. But the power and re-playability of her takes on “Dance Me to the End of Love” and “Weary Blues” more than compensates for the sapping melancholy that sometimes creeps into other tracks.

Just get it!

One of the Best Voices Out There

I stumbled upon "Don't Wait Too Long" and haven't stopped playing it and then I came back to buy more songs. Love her!!!!

Fantastic album!

Vocalist Madeleine Peyroux can best be thought of as a Billie Holiday for the 1990s. Like Holiday, Peyroux was marketed as a jazz singer, when what she seems to do best is sing blues music. Though Peyroux may remind some listeners of Holiday, there are differences; she has her own sense of phrasing and interpretation. Her 1996 Atlantic Records debut, Dreamland, is a brilliant recording, as Peyroux's distinctive voice is not hindered by overly intricate arrangements. Most of the accompaniment on the...
