Synopsis

Amazon.com
The self-empowered diva breaks free of earthly restraints to float in an art-jazz universe of her own cut-and-paste design. Inspired perhaps by her pal Holly Cole, Jane Siberry shapes her surprisingly malleable voice and impressionistic lyrics to a variety of free-form moods whipped up by a skilled ensemble. "See The Child"'s hypnotic verbal and musical motifs make it a highlight along with the propulsive "Lovin' Cup" and lovely "Goodbye Sweet Pumpkinhead." It's challenging stuff for her mainstream fans, but that's okay--this is a bold, noteworthy experiment by an artist who remains bound by nothing but the beauty. --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

Lush, beautiful, oh my my my
John Bale | Toronto | 12/19/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Changing with every album, Jane Siberry makes her most personal and solid statements on this album -- jazzish, not quite jazz . . . not-Jane and yet very Jane at the same time. "Sweet Pumpkinhead" and the twenty-minute "Oh My My" are definitely highlights. Longtime fans may be put off by this album at first (it is difficult), but as time goes by with repeat listenings, the gifts offered greatly outweight any she has before offered. This album has proven to be controversial among fans, but this work will prove to be one of the best of her career."
1995's Album of the Year
John Bale | 08/06/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just love how different the first nine tracks are from the last, and yet they all belong on this album. "Maria" was my clear and away choice for Album of the Year in 1995, and these four years later, I wouldn't change a thing.A masterpiece by an artist who already has two previous masterpieces in "When I Was a Boy" and "The Walking.""
