Synopsis

Amazon.com
Not a late-to-the party attempt to revitavlize her sound, Rickie Lee Jones acknowledges the fact that trip-hop is a natural medium for her stripe of boho beatnik in the late 1990s. Intriguing, late-night stuff delivered with style and wit on standouts like "Scary Chinese Movie" and "Little Yellow Town." The lyrics are the make-or-break proposition, but you'll have to go to her web site to find 'em. --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

BEG, BORROW OR STEAL!!
George Randle | Adelaide, Australia | 03/23/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Get this album. If you are a RLJ fan and have not got this cd in your collection, do whatever you can to obtain a copy. In my opinion it has to be Rickie's best album and that's saying a lot as I own them all and LOVE every one of them. After a couple of listens this album will take you on a "ride" you will want to experience again and again. From the opening track of "Little Yellow Town" and the upbeat and my favourite, "Road Kill," right the way through the labyrinth of music to the final and subdued "Vessel of Light," every track holds it's own and contributes to a scope of sound you must experience. The album is currently extremely hard to get but according to the RLJ website should be avaiable soon on re-release. When it does, RUSH OUT AND BUY A COPY!!"

"This album has undeservedly become commercial roadkill, but I find it to be among Rickie Lee Jones' best and most original albums; it was surely among the top albums of 97. Critics wrote that Ghosty Head was Jones' attempt to keep up with a trip-hop/industrial trend, but the studio cuts are true to RLJ's sonic sensibilities, and some of the songs are among the best of her current live playlists, which shows that Jones did not create them to keep up with the Cobains or the Reznors. You will want to tell friends about this obscure treasure."
A midunderstood treasure

"Hypnotoic. Haunting. Daring. Challenging. Beautiful. So different from everything else she's ever done, and yet it fits perfectly within her cannon. Grab it if you can find it."
