iTunes Editors’ Notes

On her first solo recording since 2004, and fourth overall, Mirah has crafted an engaging work that's more diverse and textured than anything she's released before. There’s a lot of instrumentation and dynamics at work here, even to the point of sometimes overwhelming her delicate delivery. Mostly, though, her gorgeous, feathery voice is a tender match for the orchestra of violins, cellos, koras, and other sounds, and her fluttery, soft melodies make you want to lean in closer. Then, just as the pace settles in, she picks things up a notch in the middle of the recording with the propulsive snare and bass line of “Country of the Future,” the electric guitar drive of “The Forest,” and the horns on “Gone Are the Days,” all of which provide a nice counterbalance to the many softer moments. Her lyrics, so nakedly revealing in the past, are more subtle and shrouded in metaphor here while losing none of their dramatic power. (A)spera is a moving and memorable step forward for this talented musician.

Customer Reviews

yes, of course

thank the heavens for mirah, her rhythmic compositions remind me of the tides waxing and waning ever so beautifully, the pull of spring is near and so i must make my annual pilgrimage to the sea..

AHHHHHH!!!

Wow it's Mirah! I literally started screaming when i saw that she had a new album out! (Just ask my friend Caryn lol) This is a beautiful effort from her and I can't wait to hear more!

over produced and boring

This album is incredibly disappointing. (A)spera has some good songs, but the recording itself is way too polished...who made the decision to put the effects on her voice?
