Synopsis

Amazon.com
The Welsh-raised, Dublin-based thrush delivers a slow-growing album that can hook deep if you give it a chance. "Smile" is typical of her strengths; the chorus suggests Linda Thompson, but she shifts on a dime into a full-cry Sinnead. "One Hell of a Life," "Venus" (not the Shocking Blue number), and the towering opener "The Battle of the Trees" are also ideal for an audience that finds the Alanis generation a little too shrill and/or shallow. --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

Like getting hit in the face by a frying pan. In a good way.
Ger Lee | 03/22/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Katell Keineg's voice and songwriting power smack you in the face like a heavy chunk o' cast iron the first time you listen to this amazing disc. The good news is it doesn't wear with age, the CD holds up to repeated plays, because there is an emotional depth to Ms. Keineg's music that goes way beyond the norm. One of my absolutely favorite CDs, five stars simply isn't enough. Not to be missed."
Wonderful Katell
Ger Lee | Ireland | 07/01/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The previous reviews explain it pretty well. So I guess I'll add a little bit as I feel its my duty to. Katells voice is able to bend so quickly from dry/raw to softly/sweet; this is a gift that not many have besides her and Liz Frasier. The songs approach the likeable zone on first listen, then be prepared to be consumed as you take on that third listen. Also she has choice musicians playing an interesting array of instruments.Enjoy it!"
Gently Possessed
Te Diem | NYC | 05/11/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Katell Keineg is possessed by a gentle demon that makes her crazy. There is some of that on Jet, but more on her earlier "O Seasons O Castle." Jet shows much richer songwriting, fluttery voices and an aching in your throat when you listen. I've been playing this alot since 1997, it's that good. Recommended for people who like Happy Rhodes, Coctaeu Twins, Tori Amos or Throwing Muses."
