Jenny Lewis has a rich and strong back catalogue of albums, recordings and collaborations. Perhaps surprisingly this is just her second official ‘solo’ outing having shared billing on albums with The Watson Twins and boyfriend Johnathan Rice. Much has been made of Lewis’ time to make this record, with recent interviews citing insomnia and personal issues delaying the recording process. Indeed, Lewis was at one stage in the habit of releasing one record each year back to back. The time taken over writing this album has clearly paid off and it is one of Lewis’ most coherent albums, particularly when compared to the still excellent Acid Tongue.

Lyrically, Lewis still has it. ‘Head Underwater’, perhaps one of Lewis’ finest openers, details her personal struggles and battles with insomnia, whilst ‘Late Bloomer’ (a personal favourite) sets out a story involving a trip to Paris, a girl called Nancy and much candour. ‘Love U Forever’ has a lyrical complexity that goes beyond a lovesick ballad and, as ever, Lewis combines a happy façade with darkness. This works well with the up-beat and summer feel of the album, which also sees songs such as ‘Aloha and the Three Johns’, inspired by her touring bands visit to Hawaii on the Acid Tongue tour, pickup from many of the themes on ‘I’m Having Fun Now’ and the latter half of ‘Under the Blacklight’. ‘Slippery Slopes’ even begins in a similar style to Rilo Kiley’s last album. Elsewhere, ‘She’s Not Me’ is one of the best pop songs of 2014 and sounds like an instant classic. Lead single ‘Just One of the Guys’, originally performed during the Jenny and Johnny tour of 2010/11, is infectious and cool, backed up by a humorous video worth checking out.

In my teens,my fav female singer songwriters were Carole King & Joni Mitchell.Now nearly 60yrs old,my fav female singer songwriters are Robyn & Jenny Lewis.These different generation of artists couldn't be more different,but they are just as talented.And this new album of ms Lewis is her best solo work so far.Best song:She's not me.

Just a great collection of well written and well sung guitar pop songs. What more do you want? Jenny Lewis sings about her innermost angst, relationship breakdowns etc and still has a way of making the overall feel of the collection upbeat. Highly recommended!

By Red on Black TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 July 2014
Format: Audio CD
Jenny Lewis has infuriated, enchanted, annoyed and charmed in equal measure over an illustrious career. The former Rilo Kiley front woman is always worth checking out. When she gets it right ("More Adventurous" and "Rabbit Fur Coat") she is the top of the premier division. In this new album "Voyager" she has enlisted Ryan Adams in most of the production duties although Beck and her love interest Jonathan Rice are also present.

The result is a bright and colourful as the rather lurid trouser suit that Lewis dons on the cover. This is a warm slice of Californian pop music typified by the bouncy "Aloha & The 3 Johns" which could soundtrack a summer vacation. Lewis voice throughout is at its expressive best although the album cannot quite work out what it wants to be. There some great songs present not least the sumptuous "Just one of the guys" where Lewis moves into confessional mode charting the steady tick of her biological clock and recognising that "I'm just another lady without a baby". The rocking power pop of "Slippery Slopes" echoes Rilo Kiley of the "Under the Backlight" era, whilst the title track is the sort of sweet anthem that the OC and other programmes of its ilk would have once drawn upon to great effect. The jingle jangle of "Late Bloomer" is also very endearing and will replay further listens.

The doubts emerge on songs like "Head Underwater" which for its pop sheen actually sounds like Haim. Others like "Love U Forever" suffer from lyrics that feel lifted from a primary school poetry competition not least "when I met you you were just a boy and you were tongue tied from wearing corduroy, when you kissed me I was so annoyed".

Just discovered Jenny Lewis through a friend and after seeing her live in Glasgow bought this album. The album is absolutely superb and I'm now getting her back catalogue. P.S if you get the chance to see her live do it! You are in for such a treat.

I love everything about this album. Every song is a gem, and Jenny's voice is lovely!! Bought it less than a week ago, and haven't listened to anything else since. Really glad I bought it, especially as I wasn't really familiar with her previous work!!

I heard her on the radio and had to have the album. I was not disappointed. The performance, the lyrics and production are outstanding.
