Norah Jones - "Feels
by Linda Spielman
The sophomore effort from the Grammy winner
is a bit of a disappointment. With all the hype surrounding last year's
win, everyone in the industry and fans were expecting a great deal from
It has a lot of strong elements. The melodies
on all the tracks at listen are more developed and prominent on this CD.
Jone's voice seems even stronger on the CD as compared to the first.
However, there is a more light-hearted
feel to this CD. The mystique of the brooding, soulful jazz genre is missing
from this CD. Although Jone's displays a wider range of singing and lyrically
laden track choices, the CD has few musical highlights. Pretty much all
the tracks all in some way remotely sound the same. There are no peeks
and valleys that help keep the listeners interest. Although the music as
a whole is good and well produced. There is little to hold the interest.
For those who love Norah Jones, you'll
probably love this CD. For those maybe just familiar with the releases
off her first CD ONLY, you might be a bit disappointed with the lack of
variety on this CD. I would give it a 2 star rating.
