iTunes Review

Tift Merritt is one of those especially talented young singer-songwriters who in another era would’ve been a natural superstar. Her vocal talents are immense. Her ability to convey emotion with the least amount of hyperbole makes each song sound like an intimate affair. Sure, a cover of Kenny Loggins’ “Danny’s Song,” popularized by both Loggins and Messina and Anne Murray in the ‘70s, is an easy way to draw attention — and the Emitt Rhodes cover of “Live Till You Die” shows her discerning taste — but nothing beats the simple heartbreak in the melody and the delivery of “The Things That Everybody Does.” “Six More Days of Rain” continues the forlorn gallop. Producer Tucker Martine keeps things simple and dry, knowing full well that a well-placed piano and a gentle pedal steel guitar assist from Greg Leisz is all Merritt needs to make the air change around her. Jim James of My Morning Jacket throws in a vocal on “Feel of the World” and horns, strings and keyboards occasionally layer the sound. But, really, all you need is Tift singing from her heart and you’re hooked.

Customer Reviews

disappointing

Slow and uninspired. I long for the life that we heard on Tambourine and even Bramble Rose. See You On The Moon and Another Country are mostly dull. I bought them out of respect for her first two. She's an opening act in Los Angeles soon. I thought this was going to be another album to inspire me to buy tickets and forget the headliner. Instead it inspires me to do the laundry or dishes, something more exciting than these songs.

Better than "Another Country", but still nothing like she used to be...

This is better than "Another Country" for 1 reason: The first song, "Mixtape". Clearly a great song, better than the stuff on her previous release. So when I heard it as a single, I assumed that every song would be like that one with the awesome quality and all that. But no, none of the other songs were anything like that. "Engine to Turn" is an okay song, "Never Talk About It" is an okay song, and that's about it. And seriously, if she had released this 5 years ago, I would have been horrified. I would've even thought that "Mixtape", a great song, was the worst song on any of her first two albums, "Tambourine", and "Bramble Rose", is it was on one of them. So Tift needs to write more songs like that, more rock sounds with great quality and a strong voice. Screw everything else.

see you on the moon

Love her !!! Her voice reminds me of the singer from Lone Justice...very soulful...makes want to hear more !!!
