This is a tough record to pin down. I'm not sure I even like all the songs on here. I think I don't like "My Name is Trouble", I'm more sure I don't like "Sugar Mama". That's two out of ten, so I should give the record 4 out of 5. But. If I don't like songs on an album I'd usually skip them, but I can't here. It is weirdly compelling. These two songs still definitely have their place, it wouldn't sound right starting from "Run with you", "My Name is Trouble" sets the scene. And "Sugar Mama" skips off in a different direction in the middle of the record which makes for a good change of pace and tone.

The production is terrific. It reminds me a lot of Air's soundtrack to the Virgin Suicides. A great record and one, based on "101", that would've sounded a lot better if Keren Ann had produced it. This has a full, lush, soundtrack feel, like for some vaguely 70s folky film noir with a sense of fun. Her voice sounds really rich too, a huge improvement on her previous record, every vowel feels beautifully upholstered, no expense spared. For me her previous records have suffered now and then as she doesn't have the most expressive voice, over an album there can be a sameyness of tone (there's a fine line between understated subtlety and blandness), but she's never sounded better than here. There's nothing bland about "101".

I didn't really get much of a connection with "Keren Ann", her previous album. It just felt flat. Maybe I should go back and listen again. "101" feels very different. It's not often I get to the end of a record and want to go back and listen again straight away. Best record so far this year.

Bought this after hearing My Name Is Trouble on Radio Paradise and I'm so glad I did. A varied and interesting CD I'll be playing for quite a while.

I am not a Keren Ann fan. Far from it. I have a few of her previous albums and I seriously dislike them (I have more than one because I bought them all at the same time). She specialises in slow, muted, subdued, barely there whispery music that drives me up the wall with frustration. I just want to shout, "OH GET ON WITH IT AND ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING", at the CD player. She is not the provider of cheap thrills.

So I was fully expecting to sit 101 out and let it pass me by. Then she blindsided me by releasing an actual pop song. And it wasn't dreary and slow. It had an actual pulse. A faint pulse in comparison with Lady Gaga etc, but definitely a pulse.

The song, My Name Is Trouble, started okay. By the end I thought it was sublime. Just amazing. It was very unexpected to say the least.

I showed the music video to a few people who had never heard of her before. They all loved it. One of them even claimed that they watched it six times in a row.

This is a seriously good song.

Unfortunately I knew that it had to be a fluke, or a song made under orders for the record company. I couldn't imagine she would have any interest in pushing her muse in that direction for further songs. It was highly unlikely that there would be anymore pop songs on the album, and that it would be dull, boring, business as usual singer-songwriter stuff for the remaining tracks.

I was partially right. There are three pop songs (1, 4 and 7) and one rock song (10). To my pleasant surprise the business as usual singer-songwriter songs (2, 3, 5, 6, 8 and 9) were a bit more bolder, solid and quicker paced than on her previous albums. At least I can listen to them without wanting to shout at her to get on with it.
