Format: Audio CD
"The Herethereafter," Miranda Lee Richard's first album. The soft, psychedelic-tinged folk rock of the album makes it clear that her musical homeland is obviously the Sixties, Richards is nevertheless one of the freshest-sounding singer-songwriters out there.

With a soft, sweet, sirenesque voice that is both sensual and relaxing, adorning beautiful melodies, her music has obvious appeal, but how about her lyrics? Wistful, poetic, and intelligent, they skillfully set off the delicate aural textures of her music and voice.

While Richards' melodies are mellifluous there is also a strong strain of melancholy in her songs. The hypnotic "Folkin' Hell," is, according to Richards, about a woman whose strength and self-reliance ultimately leaves her feeling lonely. While the song she claims was the hardest to write, the wrenching "Seven Days," was her attempt to write about drug addiction in a way that didn't seem preachy.

Unless you're lucky enough to think life is a beach party, a beautiful blonde chirping away cheerfully about the joys of life can become rather irritating, so this element of melancholy in her music strikes just the right balance. After all, as she said in one interview, "I think that almost all the best songs have that melancholy factor."

Startling... The CD Sheryl Crow Wishes She Could Make Next 22 Nov. 2001
By Paul Allaer - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Wow... Where did Miranda Lee Richards come from with this stunning debut album? This supposed former model (I confess I've never heard her name before) blows onto the music scene with an album that is polished and hauntingly beautiful. The CD is reminiscent of Sheryl Crow's debut album (think "Run, Baby, Run"-style).
From the opening notes of "The Beginner", Miranda Lee Richards takes us onto a journey of despair, love, hope, and life. Among the stand-out tracks are "Folkin' Hell", "I Know What It's Like" (With lyrics such as "I Know What It's Like/I've Been here Before/Please Believe Me/You Know It Breaks My Heart/The Way You Are So Untrusting") and "Seven Years". The album also contains a nice cover of the Stones' "Dandelion", quite appropriate given the overall dreamy atmosphere of the album, as well as "The Landscape", its lyrics based on the French poet Charles Baudelaire's poem of the same name.
In all respects, this is a fantastic album, and I don't know why it has not gathered more attention since its release in August. I suspect that if Sheryl Crow has heard this album, she did a touble-take and wondered how she herself can come up with something as good for her next release. By all means, BUY THIS.

The Herethereafter - Miranda Lee Richards 26 Oct. 2001
By Rick DiMarzo - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the finest CD's I have purchased in years. Her voice, her melodies, her music is absolutely fantastic. An artist like Miranda Lee Richards is rare indeed. She has a beautiful style all her own.
To describe it would be difficult. Something a little like Joni Mitchell but then again, a little like Suzzane Vega. She is without question very unique and very lovely.
This is an outstanding debut album. In fact, I rate it as one of the best debut albums/CD by any artist, in years.
We will be hearing a lot of Miranda Lee Richards in the future.
Each song on the CD is better than the one you just heard. An amazing feat by anyone's standards. As the CD goes on you say to yourself "OK - the next song can't be better than the one I just heard - BUT IT IS!".
Buy it - Enjoy it. You will love it! You will love Miranda Lee Richards.

Eagerly anticipated... 18 Sept. 2001
By cal wilson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
...but slightly disappointing. This was one that I couldn't wait to get my hands on. I was intrigued by her past collaboration with the Brian Jonestown Massacre, and I had heard lots of good things about Richards. Her voice is pretty much as billed, similar to Hope Sandoval's in that it has that same "breathy " quality, but with a bit of a country lilt. Very pleasant.
The songs are well written, particularly considering this is a debut, and a good portion of the material was penned by Richards herself. I also like when a new artist chooses an interesting song to cover-it gives you a better sense of where they are coming from musically. Richards does just that -the album includes a nifty redo of the Stones' 'Dandelion'(which I still don't understand why the hell was not on Satanic Majesties...swap it for 'Sing this all together' and I say that album's a bona fide classic-but I digress).
But despite these positives, and many listens, this album just hasn't grown on me. I think it's just a little too slickly produced for my liking-there are lots of studio bells and whistles going on, including some 'hip-hop' flavored drum machine beats, which I wasn't really expecting. I guess with the kind of indie pedigree that Richards had, I was expecting something more along the lines of Tara Jane Oneil or Chan Marshall, but this album sounds more like Sara McClachlan or Jewel.
All in all, this is not a bad album, just not my bag o' tricks. It just feels so....uh,... adult contemporary.

Pleasant surprise 30 Jan. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
My wife brought home a sampler CD that had 'The Beginner' track on it and I was intrigued. Not enough to risk full price, so I bought this CD used. I was surprised both at the depth and at the range of this debut offering. Most of the songs are either written or co-written by Miranda Lee Richards. Two adapted from poetry. She plays instruments and does vocal tracks. Each track has its owns merits, and I am comfortable putting it on shuffle for long periods (something I don't do with many CDs I own). Her voice is expressive and yet does not come of as chic or falsetto. I don't quite know who or what to compare her to-- she defies comparison or categorization. For some reason, despite repeated attempts, my local progressive radio station refuses to take any interest in playing her. Their indifference is puzzling since they play many quite obscure and even local artists.
Overall, this CD is just very enjoyable listening. Not really what I expected-- much better, in fact.

Who IS this girl, and why haven't we heard more about her? 30 Jan. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is music I've been searching for all my adult life. I'm almost angry that I could have missed it- I was buying another CD online and this title popped up as a suggested selection. I read the reviews, tried a sample and bought the CD. It is one of the most satisfying albums I've heard in a very long time. The music has a great groove; reminiscent of '60s psychedelia, with string arrangements like early 'Stones but not exactly retro- more like Modern Psychedelic, if there is such a thing- with contemporary sensibilities. There is a maturity in Miranda's voice and style that is belied by her little-girl looks. Don't let the looks fool you, she seems fully developed as an artist. That's why I can't understand why she's as yet unknown. I love the arrangements. The remake of "Dandelion" was superb and well-positioned in the lineup. Miranda's own songwriting is even better, though. Her lyrics are appealing- worth remembering. If only she had some fame and notoriety already then this CD would be an easy call as a "classic", but since she's such a newbie on the scene, who would dare? Even so, just for my two cents I'm putting this one on par with the White Album and "Layla and Other Love Songs" for its outstanding satisfaction to my ears. That's crazy to say out loud about an unknown, but in Miranda's words:
"Are you findin' / What makes you satisfied?
"Is it hard to believe / That you got what you need
"When you're singin' / The rhymes of your fate?"
Count me in as a believer; I'm going to wear out this CD.
