I have pretty eclectic taste in music. For years, I have explored many different genres and styles of music, from jazz and classical to world music. Even still, upon first sampling this album on Rhapsody, I have to say that I had never heard anything quite like it. Honestly, the first think that appealed to me was Nedelle's voice, which has an ethereal and soothing timbre. I was enraptured by it. As for the music itself, it is truly unique, with a playful and experimental character. I have heard similar music from other artists where the music goes off the beaten path of music conventions and explores more personal, introspective ideas. I found that much of that kind of music is quaintly interesting but lacks in actual musicality. This album is an exception to that. One song after another is simply a masterfully crafted work of art that flows freely from the depths of Nedelle's personality. This sounds like music that was composed with the soul much more than with the mind. Also, The lyrics are often mysterious yet meaningful. It's hard to decide which track I like the most, but I will say that most nights I put on "Blundering Blood" to lull myself to sleep; I think it's the prettiest and most soothing track on the album. There's not a great deal of diversity of instrumentation; it mainly consists of simple guitar melodies. However, this seems to accentuate the personal nature of the music. There is an elegant simplicity here that, I think, raises this album above her previous albums.
This has now become one of my favorite albums. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes beautiful music.
