Customer Reviews

breathtakingly beautiful

I would not categorize myself as a fan of folk, but I have to say that this music is so heartwrenchingly beautiful and her voice so magnificent, it really transcends any musical genre. I highly suggest that you buy this cd. Either way, definitely check out the title track because it is fantastic!

A Nice, Strong Folky/Jazzy Album

Jolie Holland’s music is an creative mix of folk, jazz, pop, and some blues. Her voice reminds me a little of Chan Marshall from Cat Power, and the songs are just as nice. None of the songs are loud or in-your-face, but Holland makes it up with interesting instrumentation and peculiar melodies. And too bad winter’s pretty much over, as these songs seem fit for a rainy day. It goes good with jazz or some light acoustic material though. For fans of: Neko Case, Norah Jones, and Cat Power.

Hillbilly Hollan-day

Just listened in to Jolie's latest release. Her voice is a pleasant suprise these days. This release certainly feels more produced. Some who prefer the archaic and rough-hewn tracks on the previous 2 releases will have to adapt. This music serves a perfect purpose, in my opinion. I'll dub it "Progressive Homage". Too many vocalists attempt a faithful reproduction of the greats like Billy H and Peggy Lee and Ella F, yet none have captured the basic, darker perspectives like Jolie. Although rooted in history, I can hear inpiration born from the likes of Mazzy Star, Innocence Mission, Coldplay or Radiohead. I certainly hope you buy this album, but If you don't already have the first two releases, get those first and come back to this when you are ready. She is on tour soon too.
