Although it suffers from uneven material, Jennifer Kimball's Veering from the Wave is an engaging debut that suggests she is an adult contemporary vocalist of considerable potential. The best moments on the album are elegant, almost soulful, thanks to her rich vocals, which can even make the weaker moments palatable. Overall, only a handful of tunes are memorable, but Kimball's talents leave a lasting impression. One to watch.
Garfunkel outshines Simon
I was a fan of The Story before Jonatha Brooke and Jennifer Kimball broke up. It seemed Jonatha was power behind The Story. I bought a couple of Jonatha's solo CDs but they never grabbed me. Veering From the Wave knocked me out. It's great from first track to last. It remained in high rotation in my listening mix for years and is easily on my "Desert Island Disc" list. I don't really know why Jennifer's music appeals to me so much more than Jonatha's, but musical taste is a bit of alchemy, isn't it? It seems iTunes has this in the wrong category. It's better characterized as Folk (not country). It's silly that all tracks are "album only," but go ahead and buy the whole album. You won't be disappointed.
Neat addition for the female folk lovers
This is a neat little collection of songs that probably deserved more attention than it initially received. I have to agree with iTunes assesment that it is perhaps a bit haphazard in construction, but there are few undeniable gems within. The opening cut Meet Me in the Twilight and It's a Long Way Home may be the prominent tracks and are well produced, but there are other more subtle standouts as well. I'm not sure why the songs aren't available seperately, but c'est la vie. For fans of Dar Williams, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jann Arden, etc...this may be a valid addition to your playlists.
