iTunes Review

Recorded almost entirely in first takes without rehearsals, The Firewatcher’s Daughter is Brandi Carlile’s most immediate and energetic album to date. The rocket fuel burning through the uptempo “Mainstream Kid” translates into Carlile breaking free of any second-guessing or hesitancy in her approach. Working with producers Tim and Phil Hanseroth, who’ve been in her camp since her 2005 debut, Carlile approaches this album like it’s her first and no one knows who she is. Not that she throws away her finesse. “Wilder (We’re Chained)” centers on carefully fingerpicked guitars, chilling harmonies, and even strategically placed strings for maximum effect. A career highlight.

Customer Reviews

It's Brandi Friggin Carlile. Of course it's good.

The are very few artists who I'll buy a pre-sale album from, but Brandi is one of them.

The song "The Eye" is a bit of a departure from her other studio recorded because it relies so heavily on the harmonies. Although seeing her live, this would not be unusual.

From a snob

I will admit I am someone who owns all of Mrs. Carlile's albums, however I own somewhere in the neighborhood of 2000 albums by artists in many different genres. In other words I am not biased as a fan of hers , just someone who truly loves good music. Sure, I have my favorite songs, what I consider to be her best work. There is some decent stuff, some very good stuff and even a song I would classify as a "classic". A feat achieved so rarely as to only happen to the best of the best every few years, but in my humble opinion something that she is well deserving of and is why she currently sits at the top of the singer/songwriter mountain. The fact that what I have just heard so far has, in my opinion, surpassed the mastery of her previous work absolutely astounds me. Yet I know I shouldn't be surprised at the same time. These are songs that will still be relevant (and loved) 30 years from now. Well done.


Every album Brandi and the Twins put out just grow in style, diversity, and raw talent. Not only is she one of the best artists to see in person, the talent shines through on her album. This is one not to miss. Every song is so very different from the one before it. This album shows off the talent and diversity of this group. LOVE!

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A literate singer/songwriter whose music splits the difference between pop/rock and folksy Americana, Brandi Carlile was born in the small town of Ravensdale, Washington, an isolated community 50 miles from Seattle. With few neighbors or friends nearby, she grew up learning to make her own entertainment, which included hiking trips in the nearby woods and self-taught vocal lessons. Carlile also grew attached to the classic country music her parents doted on, specifically Patsy Cline, and she made...
