I’m not really sure if Norah Jones has a place anymore in this musical age of Adele. Her crooning has now been replaced with a peppier and a hipster note thanks to Danger Mouse on her latest ‘Little Broken Hearts’.
My fav song is ‘Miriam’ – it’s powerful and vindictive wrapped up in a pretty bow. Listen to the lyrics…this is an excellent example that Norah is not the same girl we knew. I love the music box/nursery rhyme genteel feel to this song.
One thing I like is that she’s brassier on this album. I think deep down this is really who she is. The album has some pretty powerful break up songs. Like Kathleen Edwards – this album is an emotional post-mortem of sorts.
