So in love with Vanessa 6 Nov. 2005
By Zengrrl - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I have no idea why it has taken me so long to write this review.

First of all, let me make a bold statement - this is easily my favorite CD in my collection, which I must admit is quite considerable in size. I have had this CD for some time now, four or five years, and have listened to it easily over a 1,000 times and have not tired of it in the least. Vanessa voice, as well as the sensual music simmering beneath it, is incredibly sexy and raw and will strip your inhibitions naked.

I am embarrassed to admit that I knew nothing of Vanessa until I stumbled across one of her songs on an episode of Dawson's Creek. I know, I know, but at least it brought Vanessa's music into my life - well worth the hours of guilty pleasure spent on the WB many years back. I am a complete trip-hop freak, so I have no idea how I managed to miss out on Vanessa for so long.

I have since bought all of Vanessa's CDs, including her single "A Little Bit of Pain", as well as any other Daou recording that I can scavenge from Amazon, iTunes, wherever. I was even able to procure an autographed copy of "Make You Love" from Vanessa's website a few years ago. Needless to say, it is a prized possession. Each CD easily ranks in my top 20, most in my top 10. I am sure a review of my iPod's most listened to list would confirm this fact.

From Vanessa and Peter Daou's musical interpretation of Erica Jong's writings on "Zipless", to "Slow to Burn", "Dear John Coltrane", "Plutonium Glow" (thank you, Vanessa for the song "Alive" on this CD), to this immaculate offering, "Make You Love", Vanessa consistently delivers the goods.

Personal favorites on "Make You Love" include "You", "A Little Bit of Pain", "Mess Around", "Make You Love", and "Juliette". This is music for the sensual life - an intimate and leisurely gathering of friends, that wandering afternoon drive to nowhere in particular, or a passionate late night session with the one that you love (or simply lust).

Get a little bit of Vanessa in your life, and into your headphones. My life hasn't been the same since she came into mine.

Vanessa, please keep doing what you do. Your music is a bastion in a world that rewards the offensive and talent-devoid offerings of the likes of Britney Spears and Ashlee Simpson.

Sleek, sexy, sensual 27 Mar. 2002
By S. Morales - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I really love this album! Now an album review is hard to do seeing as how everyone's taste in music is different, but I'll do my best.
I never really like female artists too much especially cause they're too "romantic," or "clean cut" for me, but this girl really hits the spot that even the most savage beast can fall in love with. I like 9 out of the 12 songs on this album, thus the 4 out of 5 stars, it's not perfect for me, but I LOVE those 9 great songs! The music is soft, cool, sensual, classy, sexy but still maintains that touch of raw nature. Her voice is absolutely gorgeous.
This is one of those rare CD's that realy opens up your imagination and can keep you soothed for hours. Buy it!

made me happy 6 July 2001
By kevin h. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I applaud her for teaming up w/ Erica Jong again on 'Aphrodite' & 'Honey in a Jar.' Vanessa's own writing has improved and doesn't pale much in comparison to Jong's. 'thinking of everything, but where is the mind...thinking of air, but where is the wind...' Come on - a little high-school Zen? 'Make You Love' is much better than 'Dear John C.' & 'Plutonium Glow,' fortunately.
musically, 'Slow to Burn' is her (his) best - it's only more 'commercial' because Jong didn't write the lyrics (which is ironic, per se, considering Jong is 1 of the most commercial feminist writers); lyrically, 'Zipless' is the strongest. A word/2 to describe each of her albums (a free association kind of thing): Headmusic - raw, funky (definitely get it if you can!); Zipless -classy, SEXY; Slow to Burn - sultry ('This Blue Hr.' is 1 of my favorite songs of all times); Plutonium Glow - spacey, ambient (even self-referential); Dear John Coltrane - hypnotic; Make You Love - sweet
Outstanding songs on 'MYL' include 'Mess Around,' 'Show Me,' 'Lovechild,' & 'Honey in a Jar.' Play it sipping wine, driving (not at the same time), or when trying to seduce someone into bed, but buy it: you won't regret it.

BREATHLESS 23 April 2002
By "northernshemisphere" - Published on
Format: Audio CD
When I first heard "Zipless", it was by far, one of the best cds I've ever heard, and I haven't heard anything else since then to equal or surpass it, untill now. "Make You Love" immediately picks up where "Zipless" left the listener wanting more. From the first track, " You ", a hypnotic, slick groove immediately grabs the listener's attention and sets the tempo for the rest of the cd. Standout tracks include;"YOU" , " APHRODITE" , " BITTERSWEET ", and the haunting, " MAKE YOU LOVE" . Vanessa's silky voice marinates the listener's soul and leaves the listener breathless. This cd is by far one of the best cds I've ever heard.

Gets even better with each listen! 27 April 2004
By ms maggi - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Since Amazon tagged my "so you'd like to.." guide with the cover to her superb and sultry "Zipless" , I felt somewhat compelled to get more familiar with Vanessa's other work. I chose "Make You Love" as my next purchase and was extremely impressed. Her incredibly sexy breathy vocals aren't the only highlights of this album. The production of this entire piece of work is thoughtfully and painstakingly crafted... from each percusssive hit to the touches of reverb to the level of bass and where it sits in the mix. Her take on Jane's Addiction's "I Would for You" breathes interesting new life into a classic song. "A Little Bit Of Pain II"'s bassline is a groove delight entwined with luscious vocals. "You" is a perfect opener... pop-laced and upbeat. A phenomenal c.d.!!!
