"Jane Siberry is quirky, no getting around it. She is an artist who does exactly what she pleases, which means she sometimes only pleases herself. She is, however, an immense talent, and it is nowhere more evident on this startlingly confident offering from 1985. "The Speckless Sky" is timeless and moving. And very prescient; listen to "The Empty City" wherein Siberry sings of buildings "reduced to teeming atoms and shimmering in the heat." along with mentions of skyscrapers as a metaphor for life and (eventually) death, and try not to think of 9/11. There are other moments of deja vu, as in "Map of the World-Pt 2" when she seemingly foretells the fall of the Soviet Union. "The Speckless Sky" is more than just eerie prophecy, however. "The Very Large Hat" is a joyous romp and so is "Map of the World-Pt 2", despite its foreshadowings. "Meine Bitte" is a brilliant juxtaposition of working for love/money. "The Taxi Ride" is an achingly gorgeous ode to love regretfully lost. All in all "The Speckless Sky" is somewhat miraculous in its emotional diversity, but lands squarely on the side of joy; albeit a bittersweet joy. This is not an easy disc to find, Amazon says they have two. Buy one of them."

"After buying No Borders Here,and listening to it so many times,I felt I just had to check out The Speckless Sky.I wasn't disappointed.One More Colour is definetly a classic,which seems to be a more popular radio tune than Mimi On The Beach.This album is equally as entertaining as the one before it.Another perfect showcase for Jane Siberry's remarkable talent."
