5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Success, 19 April 2010
This review is from: Leave Your Sleep [2 Cd] (Audio CD)
I have to say, from the start, that i'm a big fan of Natalie Merchant. Therefore my review is not without bias.

Saying that, i'm confident there will be few who will be able to argue that this is anything but a superb album. It is impossible to ignore the obvious quantity of work which was put in by Merchant to collate the details for the insert book alone. Every track has been carefully put together and considered. The choices of music style for each piece is almost as important as the words, both working to create a beautiful collection of musical poems fro which she should be proud and we, grateful.

As previous reviewers have mentioned this is not an easy listening album and whilst she claims to have got much inspiration from reading poems to her daughter, i'm not sure it would be well received by children. I hope i'm wrong.

Should anyone be reading this having not previously heard any of Merchant's work, i promise you won't be disappointed, however one of her earlier albums, 'Tigerlily' or 'Ophelia' may be considered an easier introduction to her more pop/folk contemporary work.

I thought you might be pleased to know that every child that has come to my house and heard this album has fallen in love with it and some have even managed to persuede their parents to buy them a copy! It is tragic to see its most popular review has defined this as not being for children1
