This album really sees Case come into her own as a songwriter. While previous albums have included one or two great original songs and plenty of others that were simply very good, FCBTF contains only great songs. From the tale of inequality and envy of the opener Margaret Vs Pauline right through to the touching tale of a lost companion of the closing track The Needle Has Landed the album is shot through dramatic imagery, dark humour, and emotive sentiments. Aided by by a stellar cast of musicians, the tracks are realised to fantastic effect.
Really, even if you are put off by the country label, you should check this album out. It is, put simply, brilliant. Almost indecently so.
As with 'Blacklisted', Case co-produces with Darryl Neudorf, composing all the songs, and with an able supporting cast including Calexico (Joey Burns and John Convertino - formerly of Giant Sand), The Sadies, Howe Gelb (Giant Sand), Kelly Hogan (more of her sexy background vocals!), Paul Rigby, and on several tracks, Garth Hudson (formerly of The Band and contributor to records by Mercury Rev, Norah Jones, & The Secret Machines new one!).
I've only listened to 'Fox...' a few times, but like certain records - Cat Power's 'The Greatest', Laura Veirs' 'Carbon Glacier', Emmylou's 'Stumble from Grace' - all of which feel like relatives, this is one of those undeniably wonderful records. Highlights thus far...well all of it, but the ones that stand out for me are 'Star Witness', 'Dirty Knife', 'That Teenage Feeling', opener 'Margaret Vs. Pauline' & the title track.Read more ›
1.Margaret Vs. Pauline - I honest can say i thought this was so cheesy for some reason. A song about two women with a grudge for each other always tryna out do the one another as much as they argue or what have you they envy each other a cool song but not accessable as some of the others 9/10
2.Star Witness - Now this is a song that i loved straight away it's a great one and a clear favourite it's also the longest clocking just over 5 minutes to me maybe this song is about a man who is a witness to a horific car accident and keeps it to himself. I can't stress enough how great this song is 10/10
3.Hold On, Hold On - It just reminded me of Mama Cass (from the mama's and papa's) it's not the greatest song but it can be quite enjoyable the lyrics dont really jump out at you and beg them for you to listen 6/10
4.A Widow's Toast - It's so short but so great one of the best songs it's an tribute to dead husbands Case taps into the darker parts of the psyche.A very haunting and touching piece of music thats so simplistic thats very much acapella with only a few strokes of the guitar every now and then 10/10

It could be seen that 'Fox Confessor...' returns the more traditional flavours of 'The Virginian' and 'Furnace Room Lullaby' - there's more old-time country and gospel here than 'Blacklisted.' Those who don't appreciate the more traditional side of things may not like this so much, though there's plenty of Daniel Lanois-style Americana (think 'Wrecking Ball', 'Oh Mercy') on the title track. & Like Cat Power's great 'The Greatest' there's plenty of soul too - 'Star Witness' being a key example of that. Perhaps Ms Case has decided to emphasise the more traditional side of her sound to distinguish her solo career from her parallel studio career with The New Pornographers (they have a different female vocalist live).
Alongside the aforementioned Lanois/Emmylou Harris, there are reminders of Kristin Hersh, Mary Margaret O'Hara and the McCarrigle sisters - all good stuff.Read more ›

Neko Case's voice feels like it lives in a realm of its own. It's such sheer magic to listen to. However, the songs are just as engaging. Read morePublished on 9 Sept. 2006 by L. Omelasz
