5.0 out of 5 stars Come Lie with Holly, 27 Mar. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Holly Palmer (Audio CD)
Holly Palmer's debut album is an overlooked gem that will hopefully find a bigger audience when the follow-up ("Tender Hooks") is released later this year. She sounds like a softer, more melodic Rickie Lee Jones, with hints of Fiona Apple, and will appeal to fans of either. The songs are sensitively written, varying from the playful "Scandinavian Ladies" and "Different Languages" (perhaps the best track on the album), to the quite beautiful "Safety Belt" and "Come Lie With Me". It is a little patchy in places, (but what album isn't?) but the high points comfortably outweigh the few overly-contrived pieces. Get hold of this album if you can and you'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Holly is always welcome, 31 July 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Holly Palmer (Audio CD)
A friend recommended this for me and, trusting his judgement, I bought it. Since then it has remained one of my favourite albums. The mix of moods and styles is great. The songs are well-written and enjoyable, without exception. Easy to listen to, hints of Fiona Apple and even Patti Rothberg, but with a bit more softness. I recommend it to YOU!

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'MUST HAVE' CD, 6 Sept. 2003
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Holly Palmer (Audio CD)
THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST CRIMINALLY OVERLOOKED ALBUM'S I HAVE EVER ENCOUTERED, SUCH IS THE QUALITY OF THE MUSIC.THE HARDEST THING ABOUT BEING A FAN IS THE WAIT FOR NEW MATERIAL, THIS CAME OUT IN'96 THE NEW ONE IS DUE THIS YEAR??. IT CAN BE COMPARED TO HEATHER NOVA, FIONA APPLE AND MANY OTHER'S,BUT THAT WOULD BE A COP OUT AS THIS IS SUCH A UNIQUE COLLECTION OF SONGS. THERE ARE MANY INFLUENCES ON DISPLAY HERE, SUCH AS JAZZ AND POP, BUT IT HAS IT'S OWN IDENTITY, TOPPED OFF WITH AN AMAZING VOCAL THAT AT VARIOUS TIMES BOTH WISPERS AND SOARS AND EVERYTHING INBETWEEN. IN SHORT, YOU NEED THIS ALBUM.
