Synopsis

Amazon.com
Following in the footsteps of Sinéad O'Connor and Tori Amos, Paula Cole is an art-rock singer-songwriter who turns her personal wounds into songs full of facile psychologizing and strained allegory with overwrought, humorless music to match. Harbinger, the debut album from the Massachussetts native, is full of grievances against glamorous romantic rivals, patronizing men, insensitive high school classmates and cross-burning racists--all so broadly drawn that everyone can easily join in the complaint. --Geoffrey Himes

One of The '90s Best Efforts
01/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Saturn Girl" is still a hit waiting to happen, and this is an excellent, unusually nuanced and marvelously sung record that occupies its own unique artistic space. Cole has made a truly great album (this one), a good one ("This Fire") and a regrettable one ("Amen") but she hasn't yet made her masterpiece. So, onward!"
"Harbinger" proves to forcast things to come...

"Paula Cole's debut, "Harbinger" is a little known album that reaches the core of her music. The soulful ballads that are present on this album are some of the most candid and revealing songs in pop music. Supported with Cole's haunting voice, the songs of "Harbinger" resonate through the mind and weasel their way into the subconscious. The simplistic beauty of "Ordinary", along with the minimalist style of "Chiaroscuro" add to the complexity and depth of Cole's music. She is completely unprecidented and unlike any other artist. Original melodies and incredible music lend themselves to create the masterpiece that is "Harbinger". If you love songs like "Me" from her album, "This Fire", you will love this album. "Harbinger" is true to its name, in that it is a warning to stand back and accept the inevitable success of Cole's talent and mystique."
