But not for fans of Céline, Britney, and the rest of those "belters-no soul-whatever-country Idol" insipid singers. But if you like gentle melodies, light arrangements and intelligent writing, this is for you. These are songs with melodies that linger in your mind. And pearls of writing.
Listening to Feist's voice is a little like listening to an alto saxophone - both in tone and phrasing. The music has some jazzy undertones, smooth, cool, yet very warm. It just flows ...
And her cover versions of "Secret Heart" (Sexsmith) and "Inside and Out"(BeeGees) and "Now at Last" are special.
Feist is one who'll be around for a long time. This CD will not be out of place 10 years from now, and it wouldn't have been 10 years ago.
For those who like Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones, Katie Melua.
