Interesting hybrid of old genres,

This review is from: Let It Die (Audio CD)
I bought this after reading a good review in a rock mag, and an amazon review that stated that she sounded a bit like PJ Harvey. Feist sounds nothing like PJH to me (her voice is too pretty), and NOTHING like Norah Jones, but the album was not disappointing. Her voice is soft, stunning; a french-ballad voice over a funky 70's vibe on some songs. She does sound like a heavier Keren Ann,(another female french crossover) or a lighter Eva Cassidy. 'One Evening' and 'Inside and Out' sounds VERY Bee Gee-ish, but are captivating. This album also has very 60's sounds; organs, snapping fingers... There are a few french songs; some are ballads, some are swingy numbers. This album is so eclectic. It might not suit everyone. Let's say I was extremely, but pleasantly surprised. If you hate 70's/disco/folk/ballad... don't buy this. If you love female singer-songwriters with talent, buy it. This album is very catchy and well written. It deserves to be heard!

Inside & Out would sound Like the Bee Gee's as it is a Bee Gees record :) But she is good.
