Beautiful , but a little bit too 'more of the same',
This review is from: Feels Like Home (Audio CD)
If you expect Norah Jones (and the handsome band... such a lovely name) to sound radically different in Feels Like Home , you're in for a disappointment. The album has the same groove, with light folk/country touches (especially in the brilliant duet with Dolly Parton Creepin In - a real gem) here and there. So it doesn't have a breakthroguh or an exodus - what it does have is a bunch of excellent songs, written and performed at the highest level popular music has to offer. Not bad for a day's work. Songs like What am I to You? and Toes really give you more of the same wonderful feeling of Come Away With Me. Most of all, it has a lot of soul. Tons of it.
I don't particularly like the low-key mild execution of the songs, but that is the just one blemish, and I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel for it. That says it all.
