This is one of my favorite CD's. I bought it on a whim, and still listen to it 12 years later.

CD Reviews

Passionate, wistful, ethereal music
Aaron Blight | Westminster, Maryland United States | 12/22/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For years I have been about 80% committed to buying this album, but I never actually did. Recently a friend recommended it to me, and that was enough to finally get me off the fence and buy it. I'm glad I did; I really enjoy it.This is really an excellent album. Besides the hits, "I Don't Want to Wait", "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone", and "Me", Paula Cole presents a compelling collection of songs on This Fire. This is not music for the casual listener; you will hear Paula Cole passionately sing about her vulnerabilities, her problems, her sorrows. Some may find such material too heavy, but it's precisely that intense level of introspection and occasional outrage that makes the album compelling. A wonderful surprise is Peter Gabriel's cameo appearance on "Hush, Hush, Hush", which is a beautiful song in its own right but is even better with Peter's distinguished contribution. I would not hesitate to recommend this album to fans of Lillith Fair artists (such as Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, Shawn Colvin, etc.). If you like intelligent, passionate music and can handle heavy lyrics, then you will appreciate this album."
Unusual Style - Not for Everyone

(4 out of 5 stars)

""This Fire" is one of the most interesting albums I own. I originally purchased this album for the pop hit "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone". Other than this song, I wasn't familiar with Paula Cole, but I was sufficiently impressed with the single that it convinced me to buy the album.I found that in addition to the above mentioned song, "I Don't Want to Wait", "Throwing Stones", "Carmen", and all the songs after "Me" all have a pop sound, albeit with a wide range of pop styles and themes.The other songs on this CD offer an interesting span of styles. "Tiger", "Mississippi", and "Nietzsche's Eyes" have some vocal sound effects that remind me of Bjork. "Road to Dead" also sticks out, sung angrily in a style that I associate with Alanis Morissette.There is a lot of art to this music, and I struggle giving it a high recommendation because it isn't the kind of music I usually like. I will say that if you like Fiona Apple, Alanis Morissette, or virtually anyone associated with the Lilith Fair, except Sarah McLachlan, then you may find this music enjoyable. While Paula Cole seems to have the vocal capability to sing in a style similar to Sarah McLachlan, she generally chooses to sing in a style all her own that is different from Sarah.I'm giving this CD four stars because of Paula Cole's talent and vocal capability. However, do not judge the album by "Where Have All the Cowboys Gone" and "I Don't Want to Wait". Much of the rest of the CD is very different from these two songs. This CD is one where I strongly recommend you borrow a copy and determine whether you want to have it forever before you buy it."
