Obviously Jolie Holland is an acquired taste, with a quite unique voice and slurred delivery that you might at first find a little off putting,but which usually repays repeated listens.An obvious analogy would be a female Tom Waits,but with her roots very firmly in Americana and folk rather than jazz.Maybe a Texan Stina Nordensten.

Anyone who has liked her previous albums will love this,her third, as it is a real step up with more complex and interesting arrangements than she has hitherto used.Nevertheless,you can still picture her as part of the houseband in a downbeat saloon in Goldrush era Alaska.

Favourite tracks are ;Springtime Can Kill You,for the whistling;Ghostly Girl,which is really quite jazzy in a Carla Bley way;Nothing To Do But Dream,great lyrics;Please Don't, for the pump organ and sweeping guitar chords...Oh hell,I suppose the truth is a like it all,because it's all good.And it's that kind of good that means you may not want to play it every day,but you will still want to play it in five or maybe fifty years time.I don't know how long she can keep making records without it all becoming to forced and contrived,maybe this is as good as it gets,but if it is it's good enough for me.

For fans of the Be Good Tanyas,Po Girl, Kathleen Edwards,Mazzy Star,Ry Cooder,especially the Long Riders soundtrack,pretty much everyone who enjoyed the soundtrack album of O Brother Where Art Thou,even Beth Gibbons at a push.You get the picture.This is good and deserves a bigger audience than it will probably get,so if it turns out you like it too,then tell a friend,tell everyone you know.

I just want to add a piece about someone you may not have heard of,but who deserves your recognition - Penny Lang.

Jolie Holland's music is like no-one elses, her voice being pretty unique in particular. This is what makes her special i suppose, in that it is utterly refreshing to retreat into the sound world of jolie Holland, where everything's just a little bit different and little bit better. She's the sort of artist that captures you with her unique sound and slowly pulls you in, as you find more and more in her songs to like, even those tracks that you weren't that keen on originally.

I didn't particularly warm to this album at first, and was a little cautious after loving 'catalpa'. However it really is a great album, and i can't think of a track i don't like. My particular favourite's at the moment are 'Crush in the Ghetto' and 'mexican blue' where the whole sound just seems to simmer and swoon, slowly chugging forward.

The only downside to Jolie Holland is that she leaves you wanting more and having such a distinctive sound makes it difficult to find good substitutes for the waiting!

4.0 out of 5 stars Growing on me more every day... 3 July 2006
By A. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The first time I listened to this I wasn't sure what to make of it, but the more I listen the more I like it. I really liked Escondida, this album is a little different, on a lot of songs her voice sounds like an instrument. Sometimes she's all over the place and some of the songs get a little tiresome. But what a voice it is, the songs are beautiful and interesting, overall a pleasure to listen to. Ms. Holland's music evokes many styles and era's, but I think she's more and more sounding like herself.
4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful! 10 Jan. 2007
By Blind Willie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is delightful stuff, with Jolie Holland's wonderfully unique voice. My only gripe--and it's a minor one--is that it gets a little repetitive- sounding if played in a single session, most of the tempos and lyrics much alike. But if you like good newfolk in the "Be Good Tanyas" vein, be sure to get this disk.

Gift for my husband. I actually liked the music and listened to it myself in the car. I would recommend it to someone else.

3.0 out of 5 stars Uneven and The Same 25 Feb. 2007
By Flora - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love Jolie Holland. But on this album (like on Catalpa) the sound quality and pitch are uneven. It sounds like recordings from various performances, rather than a studio recording. That could be good, if done well ... The songs are too much the same, and many are too much like the Escondida & Catalpa songs. I think she can do much better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rainy Day Music 13 July 2006
By Le Forbenaugh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Very mellow music (a few sound like dirges) peppered with catchy songs and hymnal melodies. What an enchanting voice! All in all a wonderful CD, however it is very different from escondida (my fav!) and catalpa -- I think this CD is better than catalpa, which took a while to grow on me.
