Most reviews of this album have concentrated on the fact that its protagonist is, apart from being a fine singer/songwriter in her own right, in a relationship with Justin Vernon, the man behind Bon Iver. The important question then is, will this romantic and musical tryst have an effect on Kathleen Edwards the artist ? It's true that Mr Vernon's fingerprints are all over this album. He sings, plays guitar and other instruments but it's fair to say that die-hard fans of Bon Iver would be hard pushed to recognise his contributions as they do not really conform to any style he has previously presented on his records. It seems that he has chosen to fit in with the prevailing style of Edwards' previous work rather than imposing his own on the record and this comes as something of a relief to longer term fans of Edwards' work

The overriding impressions of the album is that this is a set of very well crafted, very radio friendly songs with tunes that will stay with the listener long after the CD has been ejected. It's not in any way a criticism to say that this music fits very neatly into the daytime Radio 2 formula; songs that have great hooks, tell stories but don't require too much cerebral effort. The opening "Empty Threat" typifies this style, bringing to mind the likes of (a gentler voiced) Neko Case combined with The Sundays "Here's where the story ends". And this is a style that prevails throughout. All is light and breezy, summery in many places but with enough distorted guitars and little lyrical weirdnesses to ensure that the sunlight doesn't fall into all the dark corners.

I loved Kathleen Edwards' previous 3 albums but having read some mixed reviews for Voyageur I was unsure whether to buy this one.
I am so glad I did.
I was unsure on the 1st listen but having played it a few times I love it.
It sounds different from her previous albums, more of a polished pop sound.
But this doesn't make it any less of a great album.
Kathleen's voice is as lovely as ever and there is not a weak song on it.
Change the Sheets, Sidecar and Mint are great catchy country/pop songs. Soft Place to Land and House Full of Empty Rooms are lovely ballads with some gorgeous harmony vocals.
Highly recommended.

I've been a fan of Kathleen Edwards since first hearing Failer back in 2003 and love that and Back To Me unreservedly, but although I felt her third album was good I didn't really think it was any advance on what she'd already done.However, for me this beautifully melancholic album is a big step forward and I'd highly recommend it to any of her fans.Her lyrics have always been very evocative and there's no drop in quality here, but musically there is far more depth to it,albeit with a somewhat softer edge.I suppose it helps that I am a fan of Bon Iver and can appreciate his input here,but I must say I'm surprised at the reaction his involvement has sparked amongst some reviewers,because this is still very much a Kathleen Edwards album and I think most listeners who were unaware of the connection would just think that events in KE's life had left her with a softer,sadder viewpoint.So, no it's not as rocky as the early albums, but it feels like the album of someone who's growing and maturing withpout becoming bland and predictable.I think I'll be playing this one as much as I did her first two and I'd highly recommend it.

I have loved Kathleen Edwards since I first heard her on Bob Harris Country and I have all her records.
Here's my view, taking into account other reviewers' comments:
Would I have known Bon Iver was a big influence ? No
Is it a huge departure musically? No
Is it more 'pop' ? Yes

It's a great record with very strong songs and Kathleen's voice and lyrics are as powerful as ever

Simply great...

This is a wonderful collection of songs from start to finish. A Soft Place to Land, House full of empty rooms and Pink Champagne are personal favourites but the album as a complete work oozes class and finishes on a high. For the record...this is brilliant.

A great collection of accessible songs with the added bonus of Justin Vernon as producer. I cannot get into his Bon Iver, but just listen to the intro to "Mint". The terrific guitar riffs and the occasional one note from the organ. Perfect.

Kathleen Edwards has made a really good CD, Voyageur. The songs and music are really good. She has a good and sweet voice. And thank you for a great concert in Copenhagen - Vega, march 10, 2012 with your band.
