Neko Case – Blacklisted

Every song on Blacklisted sends chills up my spine, and makes the little hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Neko’s voice haunts me, imprinting itself on my brain, echoing long after the CD has finished spinning. The music is brilliantly played, understated, perfectly suited to the seductive rise and fall of her delivery, never once interfering or overpowering. But it’s that voice that totally captivates…

I can keep this review brief, sum it up here: If you don’t own this record, do not sleep until you do. And when you get it, play it repeatedly. It will seep into your blood, and soak into your bones. You will fall in love with the incredible beauty herein.

Need further prodding? Blacklisted officially tied with Guided By Voices’ Universal Truths And Cycles as Album Of The Year for 2002, in my books. And I really love Guided By Voices.
