Having seen the fantastic Vonda in concert last year I felt compelled to complete my collection of her CDs. This one has all of the quality that she brings, without being in the style of the Ally McBeal albums. It really is Vonda pretty much at her best, and no fan should be without this one. Without picking out any particular tracks the whole album is a great listen.

I recently purchased this item at a Vonda Shepard concert and it lives up to the high expections i had of it.
The music and lyrics reflect day-to-day life and has been thoughtfully copmposed to capture the feelings and emotions of everyday living following the tradition of Vonda's music. All in all an excellent album and well worth the money.

HASH(0x99d2dbdc) out of 5 stars I still like It's Good Eve, but Chinatown is awfully good 17 Nov. 2002
By terpfan1980 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I think I still prefer Vonda Shepard's older works, which seemed a little more introspective perhaps. Having said that, the lady has a beautiful voice, and produces great music always. Like others, I was introduced to her work through Ally McBeal and the upbeat tempo title tune for that show. It was a great tune, and only scratches the surface of the talent that Vonda Shepard has.
I've seen her live (a few years ago in the ballroom at Trump's Marina), and would catch her whenever I could. She's currently making appearances on a schedule that can be found at her official site: ... She put on a nice live performance to sample songs from Chinatown and didn't disappoint the crowd, who wanted to hear a little of the tunes she's done on the Ally McBeal soundtracks.
Warning to potential buyers - if you are looking for Ally McBeal pop tunes, don't buy this CD, buy the soundtracks from that show instead.
If you want to hear great tunes of her own that Vonda Shepard has done, then by all means pick up this great disc and enjoy it.

HASH(0x99d2dd2c) out of 5 stars Totally Amazing! 18 Oct. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
4 months ago, I saw Vonda in concert in Paris... SHE was totally amazing!!! That day,she played 3 songs from Chinatown (Lose My Way, My Whole World and Rainy Days) And I immediatly fell in love with those songs! And NOW I have CHINATOWN...and I can say that all the songs are really GOOD... BEAUTIFUL MUSIC AND LYRICS!!! "The Sunset Marquis" and "Rain Or Shine" are to me, the best songs! Vonda shows us AGAIN that she's really talented! Let's listen "Chinatown"!!
I'm sure you won't be disappointed!

HASH(0x99e451e0) out of 5 stars Everything Right 5 Feb. 2003
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Vonda Shepard does everything right on "Chinatown," her first post-Ally McBeal CD. The songs are interesting, melodious, catchy, with arrangements and vocals to match. "Remember all these rainy days; we saved them up, but tomorrow never came," she sings on the opener "Rainy Days." The title track is a catchy driving track whose intricate lyrics become more fascinating with repeated listenings, "Miles away there's another world; I know I'm the luckiest girl; found my heart in Chinatown." "My Whole World" has spent much of the winter in my personal top ten, my favorite track on the CD. Mitchell Froom's minimoog and keyboard touches keep this track pumping, "My whole world comes down to this, to live in inspiration without checking off a list." Vonda's insistent piano displays the soft reflective melody of "Lose My Way." "Every night apart you were in my heart; so don't you worry cause I'm ready for this love to restart," she sings on the gorgeous "Rain or Shine." Froom takes Shepard's beautiful "Downtime" and makes it sound Beatlesque with harmonium and hammond flourishes. Wild rhythmic touches and keyboards make "Gyroscope" unique & fresh. "In July" is a lovely dreamscape that gives a feeling of timelessness. "The Sunset Marquis" is an excellent song; it tells a story with a pretty melody line giving Vonda a wonderful jewel as songwriter and performer, among her very best. Vonda gives a great sense of strength amid romantic breakup on "7 Days." The CD concludes with the soft "Promising Grey Day." Throughout the CD, Vonda unifies the set with images of rain and cloud. Her personal and professional linkage with Mitchell Froom has given creativity free reign. "Chinatown" is an excellent set. Enjoy!

HASH(0x99d2dee8) out of 5 stars Vonda does it again! 27 Mar. 2003
By Nuclear Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is a must get! I admit I'm a huge fan of Vonda. She doesn't dissapoint with Chinatown! If you enjoyed by 7:30 you will love this! It's hard to pick a favorite track on this one but Rain or Shine is it for me. A very special song, one of her balllads to be remembered. My husband and I had the awesome pleasure of seeing her this past weekend, what a show she puts on!We also talked to her afterward. She is such a classsy lady. See her if you can! And get this CD!

HASH(0x99d33060) out of 5 stars Vonda's best 11 Oct. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD, to my ears, excells all of Vonda's earlier non-Ally albums. It's a shame that most people in England only know her from Ally McBeal, and think that she's a nostalgia supper-club act who doesn't write songs. While I admire Vonda's work on that show, it's on her independent self-written albums that her magic is most potent. Chinatown is beautiful - wonderful, catchy (but never trite) songs, gorgeous singing and piano playing, and great production. I can't fault this album - I don't skip any of the tracks, and I feel like it takes me on a colourful, moving journey.
