CD Reviews

This is Holly Cole's most accessible work to date!
A. Peters | Near Chicago, United States | 09/01/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"From first listening, this album is immediately likeable. Her treatment of Lennon/McCartney's "Norwegian Wood" not only covers it, but redefines it. To many, though, the highpoint of the album is "Make It Go Away" (which was aired on the TV series "Due South", on which she made appearances as a club singer). Each of the titles on this album are excellently executed, giving a balance between the instrumentation, arrangement and Ms. Cole's voice. If you are going to buy one album by Holly Cole, this should be the one. You will NOT be disappointed! (Of course, "Temptation" runs a very, very close second, especially if you appreciate the songs of Tom Waits!)"
She sings a Joni Mitchell song better than Joni Mitchell!
John S. Harris | Memphis, TN | 03/02/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A lovely pop album! Her cover of Joni Mitchell's "River" bests the original! A bit of a departure from some of her jazz-y work with the Holly Cole Trio, "Dark Dear Heart" is a remarkable effort. The choice of material probably doesn't give afford her the best possible showcase for her voice, but this disc will make you hungry for more of her work, past and future."
She Makes it Better

"Holly Cole's voice and words went straight through me. I never knew she existed and was introduced to the CD when traveling in a country far from home. I made love that wasn't love to this music, but it made it better. Her emotional voice and deep understanding of the songs indeed make her versions in several cases better than the originals. She doesn't have to choose between jazz and pop. She can just come in and softly claim space."
