CD Reviews

Too Long Gone
David Cady | Jersey City, NJ USA | 04/22/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"What a nice surprise to go to iTunes yesterday to find a new Oleta Adams album! It seems like forever since the last one, and while listening to old Adams is still a pleasure, new material is always welcome. To be honest, I'm not crazy about every song (and wish "Don't Explain" weren't a purely instrumental track), but what's good about "Let's Stay Here" is very good indeed. The album kicks off with a solid, soulful rendition of the standard "Feelin' Good," and finds its way to some great feel-good pop tunes (like "Picture You the Way That I Do") and two or three beautiful smooth jazz ballads (of which "No Way to Love Me" is the best). Oleta's voice is as rich and mellow as ever, although at times she goes into a somewhat unsteady head voice that I don't recall her using before; regardless, it's better and stronger than 9/10ths of the voices out there today. So, welcome back, Oleta! I sincerely hope we don't have to wait another 8 years for the next one."
I've been waiting 8 years for this!

"Man oh man I hope Oleta does not make me wait this long again! I just got done listening to the album and I say this time and time again, unlike most recording artists, Oleta is consistent with her music. She isn't like your typical artist who puts out one or two very nice albums and then starts to sink underneath with all the popularity. Oleta however does the complete opposite, she keeps striving with better music each time! To anyone who reads this review - BUY THIS ALBUM! I promise you it is totally worth it 5 FREAKING STARS!!!!!! :-D"
Great return for Oleta!

"I have loved Oleta Adams since I heard her with Tears For Fears. This cd is amazing, classic Oleta. The voice has not faltered. The songs and arrangements are faultless. Please check this one out. I'm am so glad to have her back, making this kind of music. Only a few artists are still makings music like this (Anita Baker, Will Downing, Phill Perry, Regina Belle, etc). I love it!!!"
