PEYROUX MADELEINE

Top Customer Reviews

By Angel Delta TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 April 2013
Format: Audio CD
The magical quality of this album depends upon the sublime interaction between Madeleine's voice, Vince Mendoza's string arrangements and a tight band of Hammond B3, piano, pedal steel, bass and drums. Of course it helps that the songs are among the very best in the country canon but haven't fallen prey to over exposure through endless cover versions.

The album has been compared to Ray Charles' "Modern Sounds In Country & Western Music" but it is less a combination of genres and more of a demonstration of how a great voice, great songs and great musicianship can transcend genres to create a work that is original, timeless and satisfying in equal measure.

If there are any doubts that Peyroux is an intuitive and versatile performer her dramatic reading of Leonard Cohen's "Bird On A Wire" should dispel those doubts. From the Everly's "Bye Bye Love" to Buddy Holly's "Changing All Those Changes" and Cindy Walker's "You Don't Know Me" this is the sound of a singer bringing new dimensions to some well loved songs.

But it is the final cut from which the stuff of dreams is made. Warren Zevon's masterpiece "Desperadoes Under The Eaves" opens with epic and majestic strings that fade away to reveal a world where jazz, country, lyrics, melody, voice and music blend into a glorious, unforgettable symphony. There can be few songs that convey so well the despair that loss and loneliness bring and Peyroux delivers straight from the heart.

I know other reviewers don't rate this as highly as some of her previous recordings and may be it isn't as good but I love her work and her 'worst' is streets ahead of so many other artists 'best'. I am really glad to have it as part of my Madeleine Peyroux collection.

This CD arrived very quickly and was listened to just as quickly. Wonderful voice although quite a few oldies to get her vocal cords around but great backing and production quality. Heard about the new CD on the Terry Wogan Radio 2 show on a Sunday morning and was not disappointed with the CD at all.

This is possibly one of my favourite Madeleine Peyroux CDs after 'Dreamland', 'Careless Love', and 'Half The Perfect World'. It is also a wonderful and sparkling tribute to Ray Charles and the Blue Room bar which is still standing and in use still. This album was recorded there partly and the arrangements and production values are of the top draw. Madeleine Peyroux is back with her usual sound of soft languid tones which sing the songs like snow gently falling. That's how this album makes me feel. Her previous effort 'Standing on the Rooftop', although a nice and pretty good album, was not quite her usual high standards she set herself with the others. This album finds her back at the top of her game.

I couldn't possibly pick out a single favourite on this album so I'll choose all 10 tracks. Madeleine Peyroux's voice breathes a new spark of life in to these classic tracks made famous by the great man, Ray Charles, in the 60's and 70's. Also there's a track originally done by The Everly Brothers, 'Bye Bye Love'. All in all, I really enjoy listening to Madeleine Peyroux. Her voice just takes the listener away from it all. Wonderful and magical to hear the songs on this spellbinding album. I could just listen to this album all the time without getting bored.

Beautiful and delicious. This album comes highly recommended by this reviewer and it is very much well worth a listen. You won't be disappointed. I certainly wasn't. Big thumbs up!!

Lovely choice of songs, beautifully sung as usual by the lovely Madeleine. Easy to listen to anytime whether sitting with a glass of wine or cooking at the Aga

I am delighted with this latest Madeleine Peyroux album. Her velvet voice with its French inflections rendering classic CW and Ray Charles songs creates a magical combination. It seems appropriate that at some point she should go back to the roots of her own background of the southern States and this album perfectly pays homage to the songs and singers she grew up with, but she gives such an original flavour to these songs that she makes them her own.

This is a lovely late night or car journey listen, something to relish alone, letting her honeyed voice pour over one's mind and soothe the worries away. Delicious.

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 April 2013
Format: Audio CD
Madeleine Peyroux has assembled a bit of a dream-team around her for
her new album 'The Blue Room'. With Larry Klein producing and Vince
Mendoza arranging the string section (both peerless collaborators with
Joni Mitchell) and a slick instrumental ensemble (Larry Goldings, Keys;
Dean Parks, Guitar; David Piltch, Bass and Jay Bellerose, drums) at her
side you know it's just going to sound great even before you hit "Play".

The spirit of Ray Charles informs Ms Peyroux's muse in this collection
of beautifully performed songs and she is a fine interpreter of the
great man's material. A few sidesteps enrich the mix : a tidy exposition
of The Everly Brothers 'Bye Bye Love' and a gloriously downbeat take on
Randy Newman's 'Guilty' perhaps best among them but it is Mr Charles who
sits closest to her heart. Her utterly sublime interpretations of 'Born
To Lose' and 'You Don't Know Me' are alone worth the price of the album.

Blue has rarely sounded better.

Highly Recommended.
