Edie At Her Best 14 Jan. 2011
By SpaceCat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hardcore Edie Brickell fans have been enjoying the music she has been sharing with us the past few years over her Myspace page and her website. We've been blessed with almost two records worth of material, most of which I always felt were worthy of mainstream releases... so the time has finally come! I did not think those demos needed any tinkering because I loved how immediate they felt - all were very well written and introspective. So I am very pleased to report that the songs I have been lucky enough to hear in their early incarnations are not overly-produced here. A couple are exactly the same, while others have had arrangement changes that have only enhanced the original. Plus, half the songs I've never heard. Lyrically, Edie is at her best. "Pill" is an easy stand-out. It's very clever lyrically, and questions our society constantly looking for quick fixes... "they've got a pill for that," but reminding us of the side effects. "Always" is very upbeat with great piano playing. My favorite of the `newer' songs are "Bad Way" and "Waiting for Me." I'm still waiting for a couple of my favorites to get an official release, but the whole album is definitely worth a purchase or download. I hope she releases two CDs every year!! By the way, if you are looking for other recent Edie Brickell CD's, search for "The Gaddabouts" and "The Heavy Circles."

Hey cool, a record with well-written songs! 12 Jan. 2011
By Jarman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What's wrong with albums today? There's a shocking lack of music in most music. It's more personality than artist, more image than talent, more substitute than substance.
Didn't know this record was coming out today and I saw it featured on iTunes and then checked Amazon MP3 ($2 cheaper!). After listening through 2 song samples, I was hooked.
Loved her Ghost Of A Dog record with TNB in the early '90s, and this has a lot of the same sensibilities - great melodies and flowing, confident performances.
Think Norah Jones meets Aimee Mann meets a T Bone Burnett production. Charlie Sexton produces with a ton of tasty players throughout.
Anticipate being one of my favorite albums of this year even though we're only 11 days in!

By Far, The Most Under-Rated & Under-Appreciated Singer/Songwriter of My Lifetime! 14 Jan. 2011
By Paul Gongola - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Edie Brickell is often thought of as "out of the scene" or a "one-hit-wonder". It's a shame. She has made more music since she has been "gone", than most of the artists that remained in the spotlight. And even more amazingly, she just keeps getting better and better.

Edie could release all of her demos and every little project she takes on and it would be all worthy.
More people should take notice.

Many of these songs have been floating around the internet for years, but most people have never heard them. It's about time they had the chance. "Pill" is an instant classic, showing Edie's sense of humour mixed with her natural ability to make catchy fun songs & melodies. "Give it Another Day", "Been So Good", "2 O'Clock in the Morning" and in fact every song on this album make you wonder why more people aren't familiar with the gift of Edie Brickell.

Not her best work, but nice effort... 21 Jun. 2011
By Laurentvp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is definitely not Edie Brickell's best achievement but it's still pleasant and the average quality of this opus far exceeds that of her previous album, 'Stranger Things'. You'll find pleasant high-quality titles like 'Give it another day', '2 o'clock in the morning', 'It takes love', or 'Bad way', alongside with more insignificant songs like 'On the avenue', 'You come back', 'Been so good'. We're a long way away from her immortal first few albums but this is still far above the average stuff you'll hear on the radio, which is a good enough reason to get yourself a copy! The original true fans will probably relate a whole lot more to Edie's magnificent recent work with The Heavy Circle (on the album creatively called 'The Heavy Circles') where they will find some amazing songs like the addictive 'Henri', 'Maximo', or the atmospheric 'Confused' and 'Oh Darling'.

Beat's So Lonely. 12 Feb. 2011
By Jason Stein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In 1988, Brickell came to prominence with "What I Am", and unlikely radio hit, followed by "Circle". Then she and the New Bohemians promptly disappeared from public consciousness. Thus began the long career of Brickell releasing album after album with no public adulation. With the exception of marrying Paul Simon, Brickell has not had fame and fortune come easily to her like other artists.

What makes Brickell so intriguing is not only her distinctive vocals, but her musical choices over the years. If you have read any of my reviews you will know that one thing I appreciate above all else is a sense of flexibility and adventure, and that is exactly what Brickell has given her listeners over the past 25 years.

Her self-titled album, again produced by Charlie Sexton, as was 2003's "Volcano", is pure musical enjoyment. You can easily hear from the first track, "Give It Another Day", that Brickell is a truly underrated talent in the business. "Pill", "Always", "On The Avenue", "You Come Back" and "Bad Way" are all exceptionally subtle melodic tracks that stick with you after listening. "Been So Good", "2 O'Clock In The Morning", "Waiting For Me" and "It Takes Love" are not quite as good, but still very strong. At ten tracks, "Edie Brickell" is pure pop heaven, and one of Brickell's most enjoyable albums. Producer and guitarist, Charlie Sexton, is the right foil for Brickell's musical sensibilities.

The simple artwork of the cover lets you know that the music will be equally direct and pure. "Edie Brickell" demonstrates that there is still hope yet for independently released music. It proves that you don't necessarily need some slick studio wizardry from a big corporate music label to make music that connects with its audience.

I give "Edie Brickell" four stars out of five due to the fact that some songs could have been better. This is a solid album, one of Brickell's best, but not quite classic.

As I normally do, I listened to all of Brickell's previous works in sequential order prior to listening to and reviewing "Edie Brickell", with the exception of The Heavy Circles and The Gaddabouts. Here is how "Edie Brickell" compares to her previous work:

1988 Shooting Rubberbands At The Stars: Five Stars
1990 Ghost Of A Dog: Three and a Half Stars
1994 Picture Perfect Morning: Four Stars
2003 Volcano: Three and a Half Stars
2006 Stranger Things: Three Stars
2008 The Heavy Circles: (haven't listened to)
2011 Edie Brickell: Four Stars
2011 The Gaddabouts: (haven't listened to)
