Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

After two fairly straight-ahead (and platinum-selling) rock records, Amanda Marshall lets down her not inconsiderable hair on Everybody's Got a Story. Working with producer Peter Asher (Linda Ronstadt), songwriter Billy Mann, and young beat-master Molecules, the Toronto-raised Marshall has come up with a groove-oriented pop record combining acoustic guitar, hip-hop beats, strings, and the true star of the show--the singer's own multi-octave, Joplin-esque voice. At times the new, more boho clothes fit--the title track is ideal radio fodder, the party tune "Sunday Morning After" is a hoot, and "Red Magic Marker" is hooky pop. At other times the combination sounds forced and synthetic, especially when in service to uninspired melodies like those of "The Gypsy," "Brand New Beau," and "The Voice Inside." The biggest surprise may be "Marry Me," a soft ballad written by Marshall with her bassist and paramour Rob Misener. More than any other track, "Marry Me" demonstrates the singer has learned to tone down her often overpowering vocals when necessary--making her story a lot more interesting. --Shawn Conner

5.0 out of 5 stars hey DJ! jack the volume i love this cd!!! Feb. 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
this cd is amazing!! i love it! I have all her albums and i love them! she just keeps getting better and better!
Sure this one is different from her other 2, but isn't that what makes it so great?? you can't keep doing the same thing forever.. it'll get boring after a while. So i think it's awesome that she wanted to try out something new! And she did a really great job of it! :)
There are soo many fantastic songs on here.. the voice inside, love is my witness, dizzy, double agent..etc.. And inside the tornado is really cool! it's acapella and it sounds amazing! I would love to hear more like that! :)
i was really dissapointed with all the negative reviews i read about this album! It's really not that bad.. i don't see why there were so many people that didn't like it. I think its awesome and everyone should definately get it!!
Amanda you rock!! Keep the music coming!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is her story. Aug. 20 2002
Format:Audio CD
Amanda Marshall has a style very different from many other artists. When she reformed her style for this CD, many people gave her a hard time. But if you ask me, it's an improvement!!! This is the first CD of hers I bought (not the last) and it was far from a disappointment.
It's hard for me to choose my favourite songs because I like every single one. But I'd have to say "Colleen" is definitely up there. It doesn't strike you at first because it's slower, but the lyrics are honest and engaging. Another favourite is "Double Agent", which is quicker and fun to sing along with. Amanda has added some pop flavour to her style without overpowering her voice and detracting from her charm and the honesty of her lyrics. If you want my advice, don't hesitate to buy this CD. It just gets better every time you listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top-notch story-telling July 14 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have had to do with very little available material from Amanda when buying this album. I bought her second album upon hearing 'Believe in you' once, afterwards I bought her first album blindly, without having ever heard a single. Same way around for her third album, I bought this blindly. There has never been a single release over here (the Netherlands) from that third album.
Admittedly, I had to get accustomed to the new style she has taken into use. If you are a fan, you will hear a totally different Amanda. But, I also have to admit, that after hearing the album twice or three times, the songs started to really grow on me. They have done so in such a manner that this is now by far my favourite album of her three.
What I find most astounding, is the fact that she can get away with making such an album. We knew her with her rock-edge from those first two albums. In this album, most of the guitar work is in the song 'Sunday Morning After', which is one of my favourite tracks. The pop and even R&B sound she is trying out here also seem to fit her voice.
Personally, I think that the entire album is great and not a single song is bad, from the catchy 'Sunday Morning After' to the R&B-like 'Double agent' to the almost hauntingly beautiful 'Inside the Tornado'...
As said in the title, if this is story telling time for Amanda, I hope she writes a book with as many pages as the new Harry Potter!

5.0 out of 5 stars Give It A Chance June 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
Amanda Marshall originally released this album in Canada on November 13th, 2001 with a different album cover, but this one has the same tracklisting. There is a significant difference between this album and her first two, which might shock some fans. The album combines different elements. First we have textured and layered background vocals, which create this effect on most of the songs. Then many of the songs have hip hop beats mixed with jazz on some tracks. Amanda worked with NY DJ Molecules on this album.
This album is definately a grower on you, but it's worth it, as this album really does have some substantial material on it. The title track is a piece of pop heaven with a great underlying message, to look beyond the outside to the inside of people, because we don't know what happens day to day in other people's lives. "The Voice Inside" might seem a bit silly with its lyrics, but its also another message about not letting other people dictate you, and listening to your own voice inside. "The Gypsy" really had to grow on me, the violin intro is really unnecessary, but the song is actually quite pretty with a message about letting love set its own course and not rushing it. "Colleen (I Saw Him First)" is a song about two best friends who go after each other over a man. "Double Agent" is the album's third single in Canada, and it's one of the most poignant songs on the album and very telling of who she is, talking about her heritage.
"Sunday Morning After" follows the drunken hangover and tries to recall what happened the previous night, its a delicious piece of music. "Love Is My Witness" is classic Amanda Marshall, a stirring ballad backed with some fierce vocals.
