5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding debut album
This is unquestionably the best debut album I have ever heard, and I have been collecting records for over forty years. Yes, Madeleine's voice is reminiscent of Billie Holiday, and it is apparent that she has been listening to Bessie Smith and the great blues divas, but she has a shining talent of her own. Listen to her version of Edith Piaf's 'La Vie en Rose' - others...

3.0 out of 5 stars Delta blues with a twist
Madeleine Peyroux has a voice of The Delta, but is a white American who has lived and worked as a Paris street musician. Her voice has overtones of Billie Holiday's phrasing, and she is backed here by a jazz group of some competence. I think her 'Careless Love' CD is better, but as an introduction to a unique voice, this CD has a beauty all its own.

3.0 out of 5 stars lovely, 27 Oct 2009
This review is from: Dreamland (Audio CD)
Overall this is a lovely CD, Madeleine's voice is pure velvet, very reminiscent of Billie Holliday. My only gripe is I would have preferred more original tracks, rather than so many covers.

This review is from: Dreamland (Audio CD)
Madeleine Peyroux makes me want to curl up with a nice bottle of wine, and a solitary candle on the coffee table. Lovely, proper dreamland stuff.
