Perfection

Not just an album. A piece of art, an experience, a poem. From buddism to desire to loss, everything is here...and yet it is the least self conscious Meg album yet in many ways. Old school folkies may struggle at first with the new edge and effects, but this is folk at its avant-gard best if you take the time to immerse yourself.

An artist who just keeps growing

I suppose my answer to anyone who misses the “old Meg” on this album is that there's plenty of the old Meg here, but an artist has to keep stretching or else things grow stale. I think that explains what sounds different on this album. My conclusion after listening to it all day: a beautiful collection of songs that grows on you the more you listen and begin to see how carefully the music and the words have been stitched together from beginning to end. That it’s her first album that is mostly piano-based likely explains why she has experimented with a different sound in places. There’s also more use of repetition, both in the lyrics and the music. She also does some things vocally that I don’t recall from previous albums. What’s remarkable, as always, is the range of lyrics and musical styles, from the more up-tempo and life-affirming title track to the meditative and lyrical poetry of “Everything More Beautiful” that comes near the end. Like her previous work, it’s a deeply personal album, ranging from songs about newly found love to the ways in which coming through dark times has led to a greater awareness of the light. I’m sure I’ll be listening to it all day tomorrow as well. And while I'm at it: why aren't more Meg fans submitting ratings & writing reviews? iTunes pays attention to this stuff, not to mention potential customers.

Exquisite

I have listened to and followed Meg Hutchinson since 2002. I remember being so intrigued by her lyrics and her unique vocals way back then. She has always been a supremely talented poet. What I have loved, however, is being a witness to her growth. Each album has captured parts of the arc of her story, and this album continues to do so. Every piece of its fits so perfectly into her story. To me, this album is perfection. It is the perfect companion to moments of quiet, cups of tea, gentleness, compassion, and a will to grow as people and transcend to something greater all at the same time. Thank you, Meg, for this wonderful gift.

Beyond That, Meg Hutchinson
