"It's sort of surprising for me to see that other people rate C'MON MIRACLE as a relatively weak effort, not because I think it isn't true, but because this is the only one of her albums that I've heard, and I think it's fantastic.

From what I understand, the music on this album was influenced by the time that she spent in Buenos Aires, Argentina; this does across in several songs (not only "The Dogs of B.A."), as the songs are generally acoustic and unaccompanied by especially prominent percussion. It's decidedly pleasant.

What's really impressive about this CD, though, is the variety and innovativeness. In "We're both so sorry," for example, two voices (at least one is Mirah's, although they could conceivably both be hers) recite the same monologue simultaneously; in "The Dogs of B.A.," an Argentinian woman talks in spanish about a storm. Both songs are among the best on the album.

Mirah's voice is impressive as well, and her lyrics are generally very good (although she waxes a little preachy on "Jerusalem").

All in all, C'MON MIRACLE is absolutely worth buying, and I absolutely look forward to listening to more of her CDs."
C'mon and buy this album

"At first, I was wary of liking this album and buying into the quasi- cult following of Mirah, but unbeknownst to me, i pretty much had no choice. The brief couple of days I was left without this album, (a friend was burning it) was like going cold turkey from a highly addicitive drug.

i'll grant you that some of these songs are a bit bumpy, but the good ones more than make up for the lapses. The gentle strumming of 'Nobody has to Stay' sets the stage for the album, Mirah's voice is at its best when its vulnerable. 'Jerusalem' is my personal favorite, and probably the most catchy song on the album. Along with its catchiness comes actual substance, a rare delicacy with today's current mode of music.

'Light' is a bit darker and more experimental. 'Dogs of B.A.' takes the culture of Buenos Aires and puts it into song. Some of the other songs may be a bit weak; such as 'We're Both so Sorry', which makes a valiant, if not flawed use of unconventional instruments.

the album as a whole is strong. buy it. now."
I love mirah

"so i JUST got the cd finally, and therefore cannot make a complete analysis of the cd. that said, "jerusalem" was the first song i had heard off the album, which was enough to convince me to buy the cd. "the light" is a wonderful song, when she sings "raaaaiin" and "complaaaaiiin"!!! oh, her voice is just amazing! "the struggle" is a great song as well, but really, they are all good. i think the cd opens with a great song as well, and just takes you on a nice journey. i wish she hadn't decided to go on a year-long hiatus...i can only imagine how great it must be to see her live."
