WOW
SJW | Maine | 12/05/2009

"Rickie Lee Jones once again serves notice as to why she deserves to be considered one of the most prolific and visionary songwriters of our time - every one of these tunes are meticulously crafted as songwriting once was and the musicianship is impeccable....Contrary to many aging songwriters who have written their best long ago, Rickie Lee Jones just keeps getting better and better - this record will be debated as perhaps being her very best ever!"
Balm, indeed, in Gilead

"Another beautiful album from Rickie Lee Jones, as expected. She is a consummate poet and musician. Simplicity is beautiful, and she is deceptively simple, but so powerful. Some how she always manages to get my sentimental emotions stirred up, especially when she does the song her father wrote. And with "The Blue Ghazel" not only does she do it with only the music, but she had me go to the dictionary to find out what a ghazel was, and I learned something in the bargain. Of course, I'll buy anything from her because its always new, and she's been one of my favorite artists/poets for close to thirty years now. Buy this album!"
An excellent set

"The albums by Rickie Lee Jones from the last decade suffer for a lack of direction, and most of all for a lack of many good songs; even her two previous albums are miles away from the beauty of her firts efforts (from 1979 up to the mid '90).
This album in a pleasant return to the sound of her firts albums, and there's a lot of atmosphere here.
Worth buying."
