An exceptional album,
This review is from: Come Away With Me (Audio CD)
I have to strongly disagree with some of these other reviews. This is my favourite album from the last year. I'd heard the singles and seen the TV ad last summer, so went ahead and bought the CD. I don't regret my choice at all. Her voice is sublime, and the majority of the tracks are excellent.
I'm not a fan of country music and although this does have some country influences there are enough other musical styles involved here to make it just a perfect mix. My usual musical tastes range from PJ Harvey, Coldplay, Radiohead right through to Jazz and Swing.
There aren't that many albums I hear that I feel are good enough to justify telling my friends about. I told them about this one without hesitation. I have also taken the time to write this review as I feel so strongly that anyone who hasn't yet heard this wonderful album really ought to. If you like the samples available on this site then I guarantee you'll not regret buying the CD.
