I first found out about Heather through the Dawson's Creek soundtrack. The album has many strong points including the amazing Paper Cup which manages to capture perfectly the hurt and pain of leaving someone. Other highlights include the uplifting London Rain and I'm the girl. Heather's vocals are often haunting and especially beautiful on such tracks as Heart and Shoulder and What a Feeling. Comaprisons to Tori Amos and Alanis are bound to be made by critics but Heather really stands apart as a raw and unique artist. I love it and her first album, Oyster, though not contaning as many enjoybale tracks as Siren is still well worth the money. If you're looking for an album that you can call your own and are looking for a different folk/alternative sound then this is the one for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly something for everyone! 19 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Siren is in every way as good an album as Oyster. Like most of Heather Nova's work, it requires at least a few listens for full appreciation. On first listening to the album, the standout, most catchy songs are London Rain, Heart and Shoulder and Widescreen - these are the types of songs most likely to be released for the charts. They are good, but by no means the most aesthetically pleasing songs on the album. In my opinion, these are Blood of Me, I'm Alive, What a Feeling, Paper Cup and Not Only Human, which is as good a song as any that Heather Nova has released. Definitely the best track on the album. However, Siren's not all reflective, thoughtful broodiness. The upbeat I'm the Girl and the grunge-like Make You Mine, are brilliant too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talented girl 15 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Heather Nova is one of the best female singer/songwriters around and it is amazing she hasn't enjoyed more success. This album is the first of her albums I have purchased and I was a little dubious given I hadn't heard too much of her, and on first listen I thought, well there are a few good tracks, but not a great album, but something made me give it another chance and after a few listens you really get into the album and now there isn't a track on it I skip, it's one of my favourite albums.
London Rain - probably Heathers best known track from this album, a fantastic opener, it has an accoustic poppy feel, really makes you feel good.
Blood Of Me - When this kicks in you realise theres more to the album than folk/pop, this track is meaner and quite angry. Fantastic track.
Heart and Shoulder - Another up tempo track, great words.
What A Feeling - Slower track, piano led, beautiful
Valley Of Sound - Mid tempo, Heathers delivery on this track is great.
I'm The Girl - Quite a Fleetwood Mac sounding song, really picks up the pace of the album.
Winter Blue - Really gorgeous track, lovely words, a real love song.
I'm Alive - This track reminds me of Sheryl Crow, in the 'Riverwide' kind of mould. A real grower.
Widescreen - Up tempo, suggestive lyrics, you can't feel bad when you listen to this.
Papercup - Quite a lilting track, nice words.
Avalanche - Really love the words to this one, one of my favourites.
Make You Mine - Again a pick up of pace just when it's called for, a very up front track, both music and lyrics.
Ruby Red - An interesting verse, rythmn wise, nice chorus.
Not Only Human - A cool track to end on, you'll definately identify with the words.
Summed up: Heather is a fantastic singer and an amazing songwriter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical talent at it's best 1 May 2002
Format:Audio CD
I first bought 'Oyster' and was recommended 'Siren' by a good friend. Whilst 'Oyster' took a while to find it's way to my liking, 'Siren' was a winner. It is a fabulously crafted gem of an album, demonstrating different styles and themes. It is beautiful. 'London Rain' is a loud, up-beat song that you will want to sing along to, 'Heart and Shoulder' is somewhat of a lament sprinkled with reassurance, 'What a Feeling' is slow, with mellow tones, almost heart rending, 'Valley of Sound' demonstrates powerful guitar and instrumentation 'Winter Blue' is one of my very favourite songs, a lively, cheerful but passionate love song, gloriously arranged it gets played over and over again! 'Avalanche' begins quite slowly but livens up in the chorus and is incredibly catchy. 'Ruby Red' is quite quirky but has an excellent sound, and whinig lyrics...great! 'Not Only Human' is contemplative, but gorgeous. This is very definately one of my favourite albums, and a great epitome of Heather's striking talent which isn't given the publicity it deserves. It is so refreshing to hear a singer with huge musical talent and a beautiful voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible 12 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
Second studio album of this highly talented musician. I like it even more than her first one. Incredible, how she can express the life of her soul. Again all songs are written by herself. My favourite songs are „London Rain", „Heart And Shoulder", „I'm The Girl", „Make You Mine" and „Not Only Human". After I have assigned ten stars to the first album „Oyster", now I guess I have to give eleven stars for „Siren".

1.0 out of 5 stars Am I listening to a different CD?
I bought this for the 'London Rain' song which I love. I couldn't find one other song on this album that I actually didn't mind, they were all pretty blah. Disappointed.

How do you describe this voice? It can certainly capture a mood and an emotion, and a bunch of pretty good songs carry this album off. Read more
