This is a hard album to review. It's wonderful and has some really great songs but because of an interfering record company, Heather has been forced to make a more comerical album in order to get a hit. Sure, there's nothing wrong with a change of pace and Heather does deserve more success, but beneath the layer of sound and in some of the last songs...you can really feel Heather's original vision of the album burning away.
The album opens with "If I saw you in a movie." a sweet little song about how, as people, we connect to the characters in movies and love them and their story, but sometimes the true heros are the ones next to us and if we saw them in a movie "doing all the things you do for me" then "I would fall in love with you.". As always, her sweet and powerful voice is a real winner. Next up is "Talk to me" (probably my least favourite on the album.) Still, her vocals are delicious. Track 3, lead single "Virus of the mind" shows us a breezy and cool Heather talking about the pressures of being put into specific boxes (Ironic considering the sound of the song is being managed by the record company.)
"Like lovers do." reminds me of old Heather Nova in a new Heather Nova style. It's sweet and sounds lovely, but it wastes Bryan Adams voice, as he can hardly be heard and her voice is far too powerful for any backing singers. The theme behind "Waste the day" also reminds me of older Heather Nova but the way it's written is much simpler and the sound of the song can feel akward. "Heaven sent" is a highlight of the album. True, it sounds poppy, but on the chorus her vocals soar and I quite like the lyrics.
"It's only love" is nice, and could probably have fitted on her last album, Siren, without people noticing.

I'm a huge fan of Heather's - her previous albums
are nothing short of stunning. This one, however,
is a mixed bag of tricks indeed. Unlike some
of the people here, I actually think that
"I'm No Angel" was a perfect single release
(it's clearly the "radio-friendliest" track on
the album) and I thought it was an interesting
turn for Ms. Nova to take (the first time she's
really gone for an out-and-out poppy track and
it works wonderfully - my single of the year 2001).
Hoping for some more tracks like this (you can't
plough the same furrow album after album - it
kills any chance of longevity), only "Virus of
The Mind" came close (and would be my choice for
the second single, if there's ever going to be
one).
The ingredient that's actually missing from this
album is the usual wondrous mixture of Heather's
ethereal voice coupled with outstanding melody
and lyrics. The bottom line is that not all the
melodies are memorable here. However, a slightly
disappointing Heather Nova album means that it's
better than 99% of the albums that did make the
UK Top 40 this year.
If you're a first time buyer of Nova's goodies,
try "Oyster" and then "Siren" ("Wonderlust" is
a very good live album, but it's arguably too
close to the studio versions). Once you're
hooked on Heather, you'll do like I did and
seek out her entire back catalogue.

I was really looking forward to the release of this album, having been introduced to Heather Nova's music in April 2001, with the excellent 'Siren' and rocky 'Oyster' I had really begun to enjoy her sound. However, I do have to admit to being somewhat disappointed with 'South' it feels more commercial and has a much more 'pop'sound which is a big shame. There are some catchy songs on this album such as 'If I Saw You In A Movie' which isn't really Heather's usual style, 'Like Lovers Do' is a duet with Bryan Adams, which works well, 'Waste The Day' is also quite a lively compostion but a bit too 'pop' orientated. 'Only Love' is moving, probably the most Heather-like track on the album, and lovely. 'Gloomy Sunday' is somewhat depressing, 'I'm No Angel' is quite a good song, although straying away from usual Heather territory, the other tracks really didn't appeal to me, and after listening to this album, I can honestly say I prefer Heather's earlier work.A change can be good, but in this instance I think it's probably best to 'stick to what you know'.

You can clearly see that there's been a certain shift from Rock to Pop in Heather Nova. And the result has been some pretty trivial songs, in my opinion. It's a pity because her 2 previous original albums production and song-writing was very good and some songs were authentic gems... I seriously suggest everybody listening carefully to this cd, before deciding to buy it, if you're buying it just because you liked her previous albums: "Oyster" and "Siren". The album is not a complete waste, but only some songs like "like lovers do", "help me be good to you", "heaven sent", "gloomy sunday" and "just been born" seem to be really interesting. "just been born", and maybe "it's only love" too, seem actually to be the only real link to her previous work you can find in "South". You could also say her previous albums were much more darker and this one is much more lighter and happier. The kind of album to play in the background if you have your friends over to your place...
