Product Description

Amazon.ca

Although the music of Norah Jones continues to blend pop, soul, folk, and country with a seasoning of jazz, her third album for Blue Note is the first where she's written (or collaborated on) all the material. Beneath the smooth surface lie darker strains on the album-opening "Wish I Could" (about a boyfriend lost to war), intimations of mortality in "The Sun Doesn't Like You," and the post-election horrors of "My Dear Country." The last seems to channel the inspiration of Brecht/Weill, while the equally bleak "Sinkin' Soon" is set to a jaunty Dixieland rag. Throughout, Jones's vocal intimacy and melodic warmth remain as disarmingly understated as ever. The soulful "Thinking of You," the countryish "Wake Me Up," and the syncopated "Be My Somebody" reflect the captivating style of her previous work. Although too much in the same midtempo mode becomes a dreamy lull, cut by cut, Jones's voice is irresistible. --Don McLeese

Product Description

Norah Jones's third album features distinct traces of Dusty In Memphis-style Southern soul, as well as the kind of sleepy, sultry vocals that have been ubiquitous in coffee houses all over the world since the release of her 2002 debut album, Come Away With Me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A darker shade of Norah Jones Feb. 14 2007
By Louis TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Norah Jones is an oddity in today's music business. Her main calling card as an artist is restraint, which by today's standards is usually the kiss of death. Her music is made by actual musicians, the production is minimalistic, her singing is gimmick-free and understated, and her repertoire is essentially composed of dreamy, romantic and slightly downbeat ditties. In spite of all this - or perhaps precisely BECAUSE of all this - she became one of the best-selling artists of the 2000s, sweeping Grammys and multi-platinum sales along the way. She got away with being different, probably because there wasn't much non-teen-oriented music out there.

"Not Too Late", her third album, continues in the same vein as its predecessors; but if anything, it makes the formula better. The album is more cohesive, more focused and definitely more personal, no doubt given Norah's increased input in songwriting (she has penned or co-penned all of the album's 13 tracks). The tone is decidedly darker, whether she's addressing conflicting emotions ("Thinking about you", "Wish I could") or the state of the world ("My dear country", "Sinkin' soon"). And although the album ends on the hopeful and sweet title track, the album leaves a lasting impression of sadness and beauty.

Some will argue that her self-penned material doesn't always live up to the standards of some of Norah's past covers; while it's true that there's certainly nothing as instantly arresting as her debut single "Don't know why", it's clear that Norah has decided to follow a different path, closer to country, grass and blues. What this album lacks in catchiness, it certainly makes up for with an emotional depth that her other albums sometimes lacked. It will be interesting to see whether her public follows her in such musical explorations, but judging from the number one debut of this album on the Billboard charts, she just might - once again - get away with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars In the wee small hours... Dec 4 2007
Format:Audio CD
Norah Jones's first two albums sold some 17 million and 10 million copies respectively, the kind of diminishing returns that even the flintiest of record company accountants can accept.

Whether that level can be sustained with "Not Too Late" remains to be seen, but the subtle changes to her style here seem like a shrewd attempt to expand artistically without disturbing her core audience, most of whom will still be in the long, deep sleep triggered by her previous albums, anyway.

That lullaby effect continues here - there's even a song called "Rosie's Lullaby" - but it's what's happening at the fringes of the record that's most interesting: things like the unusually intimate string arrangement created by The Kronos Quartet for "Broken", and the New Orleans rumba-rock undercarriage to "Be My Somebody", and its snaking slide-guitar break with the faintest of scorched edges.

There are still plenty of languid cabaret shuffles, piano ballads and neutered blues, but few are as effective as "Sinkin' Soon", where Norah's joined by the simpatico M Ward on a stalking cakewalk of banjo, piano and sleazy muted trumpet.

The highlights of this album, in my opinion , are: "Sinkin' Soon", "Be My Somebody", "Broken".
