5.0 out of 5 stars Just honest music 6 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Second best effort after This Fire. I keep listining to the whole record every day from first to last song. It's defenitely her most consistent album since...well This Fire. No fillers or weak songs, just beautiful and honest music. Her voice is still on top of her game after all these years and oh God how she can use it! She has definitely matured over the past decade or so. It's still her, her style but better and more organic.

I love Ithaca and Amen, I regard Courage and Harbinger as very good albums too but This Fire and Raven are on another level for different reasons but they're up there with her very best music.

Honestly...it's just honest music...don't ask me what it means...I don't know, it comes from the heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paula Cole's Raven. 14 Sep 2013

Paula Cole is one of those "artists" you tend listen too for weeks and then seem to forget about until a new album comes out which reminds you of how good see is, and this CD deferentially done this to me [again]. Great CD, Well recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raven Soars Beautifully 26 April 2013
By Josh Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Raven, Paula Cole's sixth studio album and first independent release is an exquisite record. I am proud to have supported this album, and could not be more pleased with the result. As a dedicated fan, I can say that this album presents Paula at arguably her very best.

Paula Cole fans will NOT be disappointed.

If Ithaca had echoes of This Fire, Raven may have echoes of Harbinger, but I hesitate to make this comparison, because Raven is so fully realized, with its own cohesive sound.

This is a singer/songwriter's album, and a musician's album. A beautiful -- and at times heartbreaking -- authenticity, vulnerability and strength carry the record beginning to end. There are no weak songs.

That said, stand-out tracks include Manitoba (classically Cole-esque in its mounting intensity), sorrow-on-the-hudson (a beautifully delivered and bitterly poignant ballad) and The Imaginary Man (dramatic -- a contender for my new favorite song of her entire catalog).

If you value genuine, beautifully crafted music, buy this album.
If you appreciate intelligent, authentic lyrics, honest and bold, buy this album.
If you are moved by incomparable vocals that effortlessly glide from tender whisper to unrestrained power, buy this album.

In short, buy this album.

Wonderfully done, Paula!

4.0 out of 5 stars More Paula quality 19 May 2013
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In the past couple of weeks, I've caught up with Paula Cole's post-'Amen' period, and I'd like to say that I'm stunned. But I'm not, not because of a lack of quality, but because she was always going to be that good. 'Amen' to me was a bit of a blip, although not without its great moments - 'Courage', 'Ithaca' and now 'Raven' are all gorgeous, mature, fully realised pieces of work. On 'Raven', my favourites are the opener 'Life Goes On', 'Manitoba', 'Secretary', and the haunting 'Red Corsette'. But that might change - Paula Cole is a subtle songwriter, and the more obvious songs sometimes reveal themselves over time to be something else. My only real criticism of 'Raven', and the reason for knocking off a star, is the lack of lyrics in the electronic booklet... and I really did want to know what she was singing in that thrilling chorus of 'Secretary'. Otherwise - don't stop with 'Raven', just buy them all, and plunge in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another bend in the road for Paula 25 April 2013
By lakeham4 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you are a fan of Paula then you will like this album. It represents her continuing evolution as a songwriter, musician and human being. This album has some older material that had never been released and the newest material. It sounds more like Harbinger if I had to compare, without the production values of Ithaca. So it won't jump out and grab you with catchy empty tunes, it is very subtle and well thought out. You have to let the songs develop, but if you do you get to feel her heart and soul in this music. I think Paula is very underrated and unappreciated but with this latest effort it appears she still has much more satisfying and rewarding music to give us.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterclass in Songwriting & Musicianship 25 April 2013
By Vincent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Raven" is Paula Cole's sixth studio album and the sixth time she has managed to impress, inspire, and move me beyond words (though I'll try here). Her songwriting has always been top drawer, from her first album "Harbinger" to her break-out hit "This Fire," all the way up to her last major label release, "Ithaca." Here Paula is on her own label and her songwriting, if at all possible, has grown even further with some of the best lyrical content I can recall in recent memory. What she is capable of with a whisper is more powerful than some of pop/rocks most recent "hit-makers." When she unleashes her tremendous range, it mystifying to me how she is not respected the way she should be for I know of no other singer like her. Do yourself a favor and pick up this album; and if you haven't already, pick up her other 5 releases.

"Why Don't You Go"
"Imaginary Man"
"Billy Joe"
"Red Corset"

As you can see that's more than half the album; the other tracks are great as well, it's just these instantly hit my soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raven soars 24 April 2013
By elmac35 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Such a wonderful and personal work of art! Raven is exactly what it should be a very intimate and presise album. Paula Cole has taken the reins on this album and I have to say the results have turned out beautifully. Raven has very strong echoes of Cole's Harbinger album. This album is intelligent, smart, catchy, and classic. Paula Cole has an amazing voice and here she is able to let it shine in all it's low whisper and power belting beauty. "Why Don't You Go" is simply pure and amazing. I listened to this song 7 times in a row(and I have never done that to any song in my life). It is achingly emotional and I just love it. Also "Scream" is such a wonderful song not at all what one would expect especially since it is about being at your rope's end! There are ups and downs on this album in a good way, as it goes in life. I think if you are expecting the Paula Cole from This Fire you probably won't find it here except little twinkling glimpses but, if you are looking for an artist who has grown, lived life, had ups and downs, and has learned a few things then this is the artist you will find. You can feel this is not about a hit record or hit song this is about artistry and creating from the heart and I think she does that very well. I hope that Paula gets the recognition that she deserve's for this work. Do yourself a favor check this out and buy this album. We all should support artist who are attempting to stay ture to their art.
