Product Description

Originally released in 2001, The Triumphs and Travails of Orphan Mae set Laura Veirs on a course for the next decade; the first of five albums recorded with producer Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket, Sufjan Stevens, Tift Merritt) that would culminate (in a circular fashion) with 2010's July Flame.

Very raw. Intimate and personal (4.5 stars) Jan. 25 2007
By A. Nani Moss - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A terrific little album that explores folk, blues, banjos, and beats (one song, track 3, with an electronic beat that reminds me of Beth Orton). Overall I'd say that her style is her own and it's difficult to compare her with anyone specific. The lyrical content is simple and doesn't leave a great deal to the imagination, but her soulful expressivness more than makes up for it. Solid from begining to end, I'd recomend this album to anyone that wants to feel as if they are part of the album they are listening to, as if she is singing straight to you. I don't know what the Polish poster before me said, but I imagine it was very good.

TRULY '' ALT-'' COUNTRY May 11 2013
By M. Northuis - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Until recently I did not know this album existed, I have most of her albums
and must say with the albums Saltbreaker and July Flame my love for her music
sky-rocketed, both are absolutely brilliant. This CD The Triumphs & Travails...
is a re-release of a 2001 album and I was expecting it to be not up to the
quality of her recent releases, but interesting just the same. I have been
pleasantly surprised that with repeated listening TTATOOM has become one of
my favorite LV CDs--it just gets better and better as I get to know it.
This CD is a bit more (or whole lot more) alt-country than her other albums
and players like Danny Barnes, Pete Erikson and Laura herself play with true
inspiration especially on songs like Orphan Mae and Jailhouse Fire.
The best of Laura Veir's music seems to take traditional folk/country/jazz
and other genres and mix & match them into a uniquely new form that is both
intelligent and soulful, this CD lives up to that description.

Laura Veirs April 17 2009

Excellent example of good, almost southern folk rock, with a touch of mountain music thrown in. Consistent style throughout. Good for anyone new to Laura Veirs (her music is a little different everytime!!) A good listen.

Niespodzianka Dec 11 2005
By Aleksy Kopiec - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Szukacie swiezego, naturalnego, oryginalnego kobiecego spojrzenia na muzycznej scenie? Zapomnijcie o Sheryll Crow, Jewel i dziesiatkach innych rownie banalnych "odkryc" ostatnich lat. Debiutancka plyta Laury Veirs przywraca wiare w bezpretensjonalne, szczere dzwieki i slowa. To jeden z tych unikalnych albumow powstalych nie z mysla o sprzedazy czy zjednaniu sobie szerokiego kregu sluchaczy, lecz z naturalnej potrzeby podzielenia sie z wybranymi swymi prywatnym muzycznymi wizjami. Kolejne plyty tej artystki sa doskonalymi przykladami zachowania wlasnej tozsamosci i swiecie ujednoliconego i zaprogramowanego muzycznego biznesu. Warto po nie siegnac by przeczyscic troche swe uszy.
