5.0 out of 5 stars Straight to the heart, 7 Oct 2008
This review is from: Little Wild One (Audio CD)
I got this CD because it had been announced as her best work since Relish, but it turned out to be a far superior product in my opinion... Vocally, Joan is simply enchanting and seems to sing from the heart rather than the vocal chords. Lyrically, the songs are not literary masterpieces by a long shot, but once again they shine in their directness.
LWO comes across as a love declaration of sorts to Joan's New York City, Brooklyn more precisely, and most of the songs are suffused with delicate melancholy, especially Cathedrals (can't get it out of my head!), Little Wild One, To The One I Love and Daddy-O. If you liked Ladder and Lumina from Relish, than you should love this one too...
Interspersed among the smouldering ballads are perkier numbers such as Sweeter Than The Rest, Rodeo and Can't Say No, on which her powerful vocals really come into play.
An excellent album that I can't stop playing and will become one of the favourites in my collection. Go and listen some previews, and then buy the whole thing!
