Album Review

Brenda Weiler finally hit her full potential on this, her third release. With a move from Fargo to Minneapolis and from Fargo's Barking Dog Records label to her own independent release, Fly Me Back is Weiler coming into her own. Much of the credit must go to producer John Hermanson who fleshes out and gives added life to Weiler's songwriting. Her first two releases, while still being good listens, sound like simple demos when compared to the full sound of Fly Me Back. Weiler has often been compared to Ani Difranco. If that comparison is accurate then Weiler is now in her latter Difranco period, experimenting with genres and production styles. The sample-like beat of "Sunray," along with the 12-string guitar, strings, and mellotron touches, give this album the sound that was meant to accompany Weiler's voice. She is superb as a solo performer, but she comes to life most when she has a big set of drums backing her up, and this album gives listeners more of that than any of her previous work. Fly Me Back is a three-dimensional sound for a three-dimensional songwriter.

Customer Reviews

Excellent singer/songwriter and vocal talent

Weiler's third album found her expanding beyond her earlier albums' teenage/adolescent angst and into more adult territory. It also features more instrumentation than the earlier releases which focused on acoustic guitar. It is amazing to view the progression in her music and this album is a highlight of her catalog. "Fly Me Back" and "Better" are amazing but the whole album is definitely worth picking up.

Seriously, Johnny H. (of Storyhill) may have ruined our Brenda

Too many drum machines and not enough Brenda. What we love about Brenda Weiler is her BEAUTIFUL voice. When it's Brenda and the guitar, all is well. But as we all know, Johnny produced this album, he added too many synthetic noises and made Ms. Weiler plain. And we all know, she is not plain.

Best of Brenda

This was the first Brenda Weiler album I ever heard, and I still think it's her best. It's the perfect music for a mellow summer afternoon. Almost every song is a homerun. I especially recommend "You Sweet Thing," one of the most romantic songs I know, and "Boston," a perfectly controlled yet rocking expression of rage.

Biography

Genre: Pop

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Brenda Weiler started taking an interest in music when she was at the age of ten after getting an ear full of Tracy Chapman and Paul Simon. Picking up the guitar not too long afterwards, Weiler started playing out her brand of sentimental folk to her native of Moorhead, MN, while still attending high school. Accompanied by her lyrical dealings of personal relationships and self-identity, Weiler would eventually capture this emotion...
