I like Jane Siberry and I love some of her music. "Hush," though, is an indulgent mess. There are one or two pieces that I like, but they're not enough to justify purchasing the CD. Because, sadly, at least 50% of the cuts are so unbearable I can hardly sit through them. To be precise, they're INTERMINABLE. I have tried to appreciate them, but all I can do is yell at the CD player, "End already!"
The repetition, the layered vocals, the largely absent music...I appreciate minimalism and modernism but this is ridiculous. There is a point where the producer has to step in and say, "Whoa." That didn't happen here.
