Synopsis

Amazon.com
An album that never spawned hits on the magnitude of "Bring Me Some Water" or "I'm the Only One" from her debut, Melissa Etheridge's sorely overlooked third effort is a gold mine of poetic contemplation, sensual declarations, and emotional pleas. Of her first five albums, Never Enough is the one that best shows her range. Stepping away from electric guitar-based rock and blues and toward such exploratory tunes as the piano-backed "The Letting Go," the beat- and sample-driven "2001," and the uncommonly poppy "Dance Without Sleeping," Etheridge proves she's not a one-riff musician. She seems to push through her stylistic fears a bit, yet stays comfortably within the boundaries that her raspy belt can reach. Never Enough offers a healthy dose of Etheridge's trademark soul-twisting rock in the form of "Ain't it Heavy" and the angry, possessive of "It's for You." But the addition of pattern-busting songs makes this album a particularly mature, rich, pleasurable listen. --Sally Weinbach

CD Reviews

Many may not gree, but this is a fine album.
J. J Lima | walnut, Ca. United States | 07/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Here Melissa tried to do something a little different. Incorporating dance beats was a risky move from an emerging rocker,but somehow, in my opinion it worked. This is Melissa having fun and it really shows. You must be crazy for me and Meet me in The back are just total fun, but she wrote two of her most beautiful songs on this album as well; The Letting Go and Keep it Precious. A great album, largely dissed by the critics. What a shame, because it was only a glimpse of what was yet to come."

(5 out of 5 stars)

"After the insane success of "Melissa Etheridge" and "Brave and Crazy," Melissa Etheridge apparently decided to vary her style just a bit on "Never Enough." This album is filled with everything from industrial drumming ("2001") to intensely emotional lyrics that hit home ("The Boy Feels Strange" "The Letting Go"). Etheridge fans who are new to the scene will probably love this album, as it seems to be a critical turning point in the rocker's incredible career. If you've not checked out this album by now, give it a spin as soon as possible. It's definitely worth it"
HER SINGLE BEST ALBUM YET, PERIOD.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"To all previous reviewers; God only knows why the average rating for this album woudl be only 4 stars. I suggest you listen to it more often! Though virtually all Melissa Etheridge albums are of a very high level, this one clearly stands out in my opinion as the best she has made so far, due to the consistently high musical and emotional level of the songs on this album. Whereas her other albums tend to have several outstanding songs, but often also several less noteworthy ones, this whole album is excellent. Personally, I would also consider 'Keep it precious' for the title best pop-rock song (composition) ever. (Another one on my list for that title would be Bonnie Raitt's '(Goin') Wild For You Baby', to add some perspective.)"
