Mary Margaret O'Hara - where have you been and where have you gone? This (nearly) second album by the elusive Canadian who penned one of the all time great Albums - Miss America - is also a fine fine record. Buy, love.

How can you resist wanting to hear new songs from MMO'H? 21 Aug 2004
By K. C. Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you're a fan of MMO'H and always wanted her to make a follow-up to Miss America, then this album is for you, with some reservations. This soundtrack album was recorded on the cheap; the liner notes tell of Mary Margaret and friends (many of the same players from Miss America, including guitarist Rusty McCarthy) jamming free-form while the movie was projected on the wall. I wish I could have been there to see it!

There are a few songs here that are as good as anything that appeared on Miss America, especially Was You, Have You Gone (terrific, near-operatic wailing from Mary here), and the heartbreaking I Don't Care. Most other songs have the experimental feel of free-form jazz sessions, all of which are interesting and some are quite funny: in Scary Latin Love Song, MM "scats" lustily with a phony Spanish accent over a flamenco beat; on Chez Le Nez Suite she does more scatting but with a faux French accent; Never Came Back Again starts out as a bluesy romp, then MM dives mid-way through into vocal expressions that sound like she's imitating Elvis imitating Bjork (that's the best way I can describe it, anyway). The gorgeous Rain is all wordless vocalizations, and is one of the prettiest songs I've heard from her.

A few caveats for those who are thinking of buying this CD. If you are expecting a fully-formed "singles" type collection, you might be let down a little bit. The production quality is low, though the players obviously made the most of what they had to work with. Also, this CD is hard to find - the prices here on amazon are a bit high, but good luck finding it in a used record shop.

But anyone who loves Mary Margaret will definitely want this - just hearing her expressive, beautiful voice on some brand-new songs is a real delight. I just wonder if these sessions inspired her enough to want to make another studio album, the real follow-up to Miss America that I'm still waiting for ...

If you liked Miss America, then you'll probably like this. 16 May 2004
By Andrew Stewart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a soundtrack to a movie and as such had different requirements than just producing a set of songs that all fit as a coherent whole. But if you like the vocal stylings of Ms. O'Hara then get this CD. There are quite a few outstanding songs that equal the best found on Miss America. I bought the movie as well and didn't expect much of it. I was surprised, the movie is pretty funny and worth a rental. Problem is renting is out of the question unless you live in Toronto. It has practically no distribution that I could find outside of one DVD/CD store in Toronto.

a human theremin machine 27 Mar 2012
By Eric - Published on Amazon.com
For those not wanting to dip all the way into this idiosyncratic album, but who have long loved the unique vocal gifts of MMO, let me suggest the following tracks for individual download:

"Rain"
"Dream I Had (1)"
"I Don't Care"
Chez Le Nez Suite
"Dream I Had (2)"

These are the most fully realized as songs, the most in the vein of Miss America (her landmark 1988 CD), the longest (sounding less like film cues) and the most pop (some of the other tracks verge on world music). Save for the Suite, which is mostly crazy scatting as only Mary Margaret can do, with a few snatches of French here and there.

Can't help it I love her singing. 1 Mar 2014
By Steven R. Severance - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you love the idiosincratic Mary Margaret O'Hara than you probably are suffering over how little material there is by her. This is a must have movie sound track for all fans just because it exists. It is not as good as her studio album but way better than than your average singer songwriter.
