By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 30 July 2013
Format: MP3 Download
This is a very fine album. I haven't heard Alela Diane before and a friend recommended her to me; I am mightily impressed.

The songs here are intensely personal, generally analysing and describing relationships as they begin and end (hence the title) and I find them exceptionally insightful, poignant and haunting. They remind me rather of Joni Mitchell even though they don't really sound like her, in that they have an individual sound and enduring quality and although they aren't especially catchy or instantly singable, they are musical and tuneful. They also have a depth which means they stay with you long after you have finished listening to them. That's an impressive attribute in a song and a lot of these, like Colorado Blue, the title track, Lost Land and Hazel Street among others do it for me.

Alela Diane has a lovely, slightly husky and haunting voice and can really give meaning to a song. She plays fairly simple guitar which is very effective and the production is excellent, with fine, subtle harmonies and delicate use of strings and other instruments which add real atmosphere and never swamp the songs.

I am now off to investigate Alela Diane's previous albums. If they are anything like as good as this I shall be delighted, and I recommend this very warmly to anyone who likes a thoughtful and often very beautiful song, very well performed by its composer. It's terrific.

HASH(0xa052e300) out of 5 stars Different Direction from Previous Album, but Still Excellent 7 Aug. 2013
By T. A. Daniel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 2011, Alela Diane released the excellent Alela Diane & Wild Divine -- Diane's typical singer-songwriter fare was elevated by the addition of Wild Divine, her backing band. Diane's music was full, rich, and even experimental ("White Horse" is one of 2011's best tracks). Many of the tracks on Alela Diane & Wild Divine were co-written with Diane's then-husband, Tom Bevitori. Perhaps it was Bevitori's involvement that pushed Diane's music in exciting new directions, but at any rate, the two divorced shortly after the tour for the record. Two years later, Alela Diane is back but without Crazy Horse, so to speak; this is a breakup album, and it feels and sounds like one. About Farewell is stripped down and melancholy compared to her 2011 release, but the main attractions -- the voice and the lyrics -- haven't gone anywhere.

About Farewell's first track, "Colorado Blue," feels like the most thoughtful song in this collection; lyrically, it's one of the most touching, and musically, it hits all the right notes. Beginning slow and soft, Diane's lyrics are specific and immediate; Diane's lyrics are often best on this record when she is at her most descriptive. The song starts as a poignant love song, but it changes tone (literally and figuratively) after two minutes as Diane recalls the separation of two lovers: "Then you headed east/ And said her name/ I read between the lines/ I called a plane to Denver/ Your eyes had turned to stone/ From that cold apartment window/ I saw you fade into the snow."

The album sags slightly in the middle; songs at the heart of About Farewell are fine but mostly unremarkable. "Lost Land", "Before the Leaving", and "I Thought I Knew" are decent tracks, but they lack the heartbreak and melody of the album's better cuts. Closing track "Rose & Thorn" doesn't have the polish or layering that other songs have, but it's one of About Farewell's best because it sticks to the basics. Its guilt-ridden, confessional lyrics are short, simple, and effective.

Alela Diane's move back into solo artist territory is a strong, solid album, but it's not likely to serve as a breakthrough. In the transition, she's lost some of the folky trappings, and that's a shame. The hints of Northwestern country that Diane used to work with suited her well and distinguished her from the plethora of other singer-songwriters. "The Way We Fall" sounds like something from Alela Diane & Wild Divine, and it's one of the more memorable tracks on About Farewell. It's possible that Diane's voice just works better when it has a full band surrounding it. This wasn't a record that was created to top the Billboard 200; About Farewell is about capturing the moments of heartbreak and loneliness that come with a divorce, and on that front, it's a success.

HASH(0xa029f00c) out of 5 stars Amazing. 15 Sept. 2013
By Alex Shep - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
Alela Diane is one of the most talented, poetic singers I have heard. I find that I enjoy each and every song she puts out. Wether it be The Rifle from Pirate's Gospel to Suzanne from The Wild Divine. No matter how much she changes her styles... I find myself growing a deeper connection with the song. The thing is... this isn't some pop bubblegum girl singing about clubs or boys. This is a beautiful women singing about very spiritual things that stretch from her mother getting cancer, murder, God, or divorce. I highly recommend buying her albums and taking a listen. She is one of a kind.

HASH(0xa04c73a8) out of 5 stars Haunting and beautiful 28 Jun. 2013
By egk - Published on Amazon.com

I love Alela Diane. Love her voice, her music, her poetic lyrics. I have all her albums -- loved them all - and this may well be my favorite. It hearkens back to her earlier albums in the spare construction of her songs. It's GORGEOUS, sad, and earthy.
HASH(0xa07f948c) out of 5 stars Darker than earlier albums but true to spirit; very intimate breakup songs; earlier albums a little better 24 Jun. 2016
By James Mckenna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
We love Alela Diane and have two of her early albums. I bought this expecting it to have more of the same soulful, lyrical songs. Soulful and lyrical, yes, but not up to the level of Pirate's Gospel or To Be Still. These are breakup songs and feel quite intimate. That's her style and I'm fine with that. Earlier songs are more uplifting and inspiring but not saccharine, being about enduring love, fortitude, loyalty, etc. These are a bit of a downer, but true to her spirit. An artist isn't responsible to meet expectations based on the past. Growing and moving forward are part of the job. If you buy, however, know that this is a dark album.
