Vonda Continues Her Magic!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"After the Ally McBeal nonsense, I was hoping Vonda would not give it up and return to writing her own brilliant personal compositions and voila, Chinatown hits a home run! It's beautiful, creative and eloquent. The overall production is terrific and clear - as usual you can easily pick out the various/variety of instruments she typically incorporates into her recordings which prevent things from ever getting stale(HEY VONDA WHEN ARE WE GOING TO GET A LIVE CD, A LIVE DVD AND A SONGBOOK?). In summary, yes, Vonda is my personal favorite of the music I listen too. I've seen her 2X in concert and was knocked out by her performances. The true test of any recording artist is the live show. To me, Vonda remains one of the most underrated composers, singers, pianst' and talents in the industry. I compare her to James Taylor, Bruce Hornsby, etc. And I could listen to her sing all day long. She is not mainstream; perhaps her songs are too complex for the masses, but she endures, because, in the end, there is no substitute for talent."
Vonda does it again!

"This CD is a must get! I admit I'm a huge fan of Vonda. She doesn't dissapoint with Chinatown! If you enjoyed by 7:30 you will love this! It's hard to pick a favorite track on this one but Rain or Shine is it for me. A very special song, one of her balllads to be remembered. My husband and I had the awesome pleasure of seeing her this past weekend, what a show she puts on!We also talked to her afterward. She is such a classsy lady. See her if you can! And get this CD!"
Starts out really great......

"I have been a fan of Vonda's for a few years now, and was very excited when I came across her new CD. In the store I used my "first three tracks" rule, which basically means that if it is an artist I already know and like I will listen to the first three tracks to see if they pass my listening test. Well, I was quite impressed with the first three, and being a fan I went ahead and purchased it. Once in the car however, I quickly grew disappointed after the third track. It was like she had this great spark of inspiration that then just sort of gradually fizzled out as the recording wears on, (and I do mean wear). Each time I go back to listen to this CD I keep thinking, why couldn't the whole CD be like the first three tracks. Vonda seems to have often been haunted by an uneveniness in her music that sometimes leaves me feeling frustrated. While I really like the first three tracks I would say that unless you are a die hard fan you should seek out other recordings by Vonda before buying this one."
