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!

Madeline Peyroux has a beautifully unique and charming style that permeates every track. This album is great for a cozy fireside day and equally suited as ambient background music.

Vocalist Madeleine Peyroux is an acclaimed performer with a dusky, lyrical style and a bent toward covering jazz and blues standards along with her own folky originals. Bursting onto the international scene in the '90s, Peyroux drew favorable comparisons to Billie Holiday. While her intimate sound certainly owes a debt to Holiday, Peyroux has carved out her own distinctive stylistic niche, balancing a modern pop sensibility with a respect for older vocal traditions.
