2007 reissue of this album from the acclaimed singer/songwriter, originally released in 2002. With her voice more to the fore than on previous albums, Blacklisted is a step in the more traditional direction: stripped down and buck naked. Mixing Blues, Jazz, Country, Folk and Pop may sound awkward in someone else's hands, but Case makes it sound so easy.
Neko Case's third solo effort is a moody, atmospheric affair that both satisfies and mystifies. Recorded in Tucson with a stellar band that includes Calexico's Joey Burns and John Convertino, Blacklisted charms you with its haunting, reverb-soaked songs, most of which were written by Case herself. The lyrics are impressionistic and, at times, inscrutable. "Fast train, where do your passengers wait?" she sings in the title song. "What's at the heart of your engine's rage?" While it's not always clear what Case is getting at, the overall mood of the album is one of loss and melancholy. Soaring above it all is Case's remarkable Patsy Cline-meets-Judy Garland voice, which she uses to great effect on the album's two torchy cover songs: Sarah Vaughan's "Look for Me (I'll Be Around)" and Aretha Franklin's "Running Out of Fools." --David Hill --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"Reverb-soaked"?? More like "reverb-inundated". The songs are interesting but the overall sound is muddy, boomy and, ultimately, irritating. Read morePublished on April 16 2004 by John Manning
Just buy it already! It took me a couple listens, as does pretty much any cd, but my lordy- this album makes me weep! It is unreal, truly- the album is absolute perfection. Read morePublished on April 4 2004 by E. Davis
Throw your Faith Hill and Dixie Chicks in the trash right next to your Britney Spears. This is what what true, soulful, talented female singers were meant to sound like. Read morePublished on March 11 2004
Actually, that's not true. I like Lyle Lovett and Johnny Cash, but that's been about it. Until now.
Neko Case's haunting vocals paint vivid pictures in my head that STICK. Read more
There's a dark, scary underside to country music, explored only by brave souls like Johnny Cash, Hank Williams... and Neko Case. This is a marvelous album. Read morePublished on Feb. 4 2004 by Dave Stagner
My only complaint would be the homogeneity of song structure and key throughout much of the album. On one hand this lets the songs flow into one another, on the other hand it... Read morePublished on Jan. 21 2004
Neko Case has a voice that is as warming as a shot of firewater on a cold winters night. And her songs have a bite to them that sneaks up on you. Read morePublished on Dec 10 2003 by Trevor S. Platcow
