Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

An intimate, lovelorn thing, Storm finds the Bermuda-born Heather Nova on reflective form while collaborators Mercury Rev apply the lightest of musical touches. Rife with raw emotional honesty and tender musical subtlety, Storm was largely recorded in Mercury Rev's studio, nestled in the heights of Woodstock's snow-capped mountains. While Heather's voice is as sweet as an angel, she's clearly one that's been to hell and back. Not for her the syrup-strewn lusty love ballad.

Storm rumbles with a guilty intensity that's unrelenting on the likes of "Lets Not Talk about Love" and the haunting admission of adultery "One Day in June". Elsewhere atmospheric soundscapes such as "Aquamarine" are laid next to the stripped-bare simplicity of "Everything", featuring the gentle strumming of Patti Smith's longtime guitarist Lenny Kaye. Carefully crafted, highly composed and not a little uncompromising, Storm is a sublime mix of lush melodies and candid poetic lyricism that is arguably Nova's career best. --Christopher Barrett

Having been a fan of Heather's work for a few years now, I was mildly disappointed with her last outing "South", which was a departure from her more spiritual sound to a more commercial effort, though there were one or two efforts in there that gave us hope.
However, I am glad to report that this new album has Heather back to her true form. From the first play,I knew this cd would encapsulte me, and I have to declare that this is Heather at her most honest and best recording performance so far.
The songs are so very much more intense, more earthy and simple, but yet her voice is at it's most haunting best throughout. Efforts such as One Day In June and the title track Storm, has proved that Heather has the ability to cause fragility in one's heart and mind, while other highlights such as All I Need and Everything, just back up what is a truely inspired piece of work.
I have always wished Heather had more sales success, especially in the UK, but at times, I am glad that she is not this commercially huge music icon, because somethings are best kept and best left a secret, and Heather Nova is one hell of a little secret!

To begin with 5 stars is not a high enough rating for this album.
Heather Nova does not disappoint any of her devoted fans with this latest collection of truly beautiful songs. Track 9 'Thats all i need' is the most wonderful song in the world ever!!!!
It is also a disgrace that the record industry does not rate Heather Nova as the pure wonderful gem she is. Has no one else other than her fans have any real taste?
you could get lost in this haunting album for the rest of your life. Definatly one that you will be listening to in another 10 yrs. How many other albums can you say that about? if her vocals do not melt your heart than there is something wrong with you.
I met Heather a while back and she is so sweet and down to earth. a truly underrated star. Shine on Heather!!
Buy this album. Buy it now and join the few of us who truly appreciate quality when we here it!

After it's disappointing predecessor, 'South' I wasn't sure what to expect of 'Storm', or whether to even buy this album at all. However, this time round, I have not been disappointed by a more commercial pop sound ( like 'South' ). 'Storm' is a gem of an album, and it makes me wonder why Heather Nova remains so relatively unknown, and society favours bubble gum pop, and the all -too- common rubbish which is pumped out by the music industry which masquerades under the name of 'music'.
'Storm' boasts poetic lyrics and sounds indigenous to Heather's earlier work, but with different musical arrangements owing to different producers. It lifts your spirits as it carries you away into a daydream. "Let's Not Talk About Love" is sung with mood, aching with musical expression and emotion. "You Left Me A Song" full of electric guitar rifts, "Drink It In" is so atmospheric, I listened to this album on a long train journey and it flowed so well with the rushing scenery;trees and fields. Heather appreciates the sky and scenery so it fit in well.This track is one of my favourites. "River of Life" sings of disappointments in life, but with a catchy tune, it's almost reassuring. "Storm" echoes a similar sentiment to "River of Life". I wasn't too keen on "One Day In June" a confession of adultery, and somewhat dreary although tinged with guilt. "Aquamarine" is a bit flat, not one of the highlights on this album.
"I wanna Be Your Light" sounds cheesy as a title but lends itself to repetition in your head, it's beautiful and sung with longing and meaning, and flowing soundscapes...wonderful...another favourite of mine. "All I Need" is incredibly catchy, with soaring piano and strings, and emotive lyrics... pure bliss...

I was browsing albums on Amazon and I came across this one. After reading the reviews I decided to give it a go and I am so glad I did. Excellant lyrics and a beautiful voice. The album makes a really strong start which drew me in from the first play. "Let's not Talk about love" kept running through my head after listening to it, it really appealed to me.
Truely Fantastic. Inspired me to buy this album for someone else and I've bought some more of her work. She needs YOU to discover her !

Fourth studio album of Heather Nova. No producer has been involved in the recording of this album. Since no record label would have allowed that, Heather Nova has recorded the album all by herself and gave it afterwards in license to the record label. The songs are not very stormy, despite of the album title, but rather gentle and calm. Maybe one reason for this is that Heather Nova is pregnant and that the baby should not be frightened from the beginning. The intensity, however, is not less in any way. If I would have to listen only to one CD again and again for the rest of my life, I would chose this one. My favourite songs are „You Left Me A Song", „Drink It In", „River Of Life", „I Wanna Be Your Light" and „Fool For You".

Every now and again a record appears that those pundits in the music industry who claim to "know" announce that the album is a "must have". Storm is no "must have", it's a "GOTTA HAVE!!". For here we are treated to the pinnacle of Heather Nova's beautifully understated talent.
A record of remarkable achievement and originality, oozing with emotion and raw, simplistic beauty. It takes real guts and self-belief to produce an album these days that has the minimal production and post production, it is tribute to Nova's genius that not only has she achieved this, but at the same time she has delivered her finest offering to date! There is not one medicore song here, in fact, im sure the tracks are placed in order for the listener to embark on a journey of forlorn love, longing and ultimately, hope.
"Drink it in" is magnificent; inspired by her brother's illness - would have been so easy to make a self-indulgent weepy here, but through the obvious pain expressed in the music the undertone is ultimately one of inspiration - this song makes you WANT to live life! "I wanna be your light" - is another classic, the tune is so, so simple but yet again the magic here is Nova's ability to convey the feeling of the song so perfectly through word and music. I would say it impossible not to feel uplifted by music like this! "Fool for you" is unashamedly a love song, with again that little bitter twist so evident in Nova's work - to me this is what separates her from those lesser beings she is constantly compared with. The only reason why this album does not receive 6 stars (if that were possible!)is this.
