Hm, looks like it was finally officially released in the US. While I like it a lot too, I think it's a bit overproduced (and let's not get into the whole DR thing)... Haven't listened to it so much recently after discovering many other great singers (in part through here at HeadFi)
Personally I think her "live" studio performances are so much more showcasing her voice and talent:
And even my least favourite track is OK:
But my favourite showcase, even though not the most spectacular one:
Also saw on Amazon that I'm apparently not the only one who thinks that... At least "Plain Gold Ring (Live)" was included on the official EP, of course still compressed. It would have been great to have a Deluxe edition with all the Live tracks on a second disk... the download-only version doesn't either and well, it's MP3s. I eventually ended up downloading the HD versions and extracting the audio for a makeshift "Live EP", something I never bothered with before. Hope this will be officially remedied sooner rather than later.post #2104 of 40909/11/12 at 1:31am
