Natalie Merchant – Ophelia
This is a fantastic CD. No one else sings like Merchant, she’s transfixing. She’s what I’d want Sarah McLachlan to be – she can really sing but doesn’t go in for that voice-breaking, breathy affectation. Yes, she uses a lot of vibrato but that’s not the same thing at all.
Anyway, these are brilliant, uplifting songs. Yes! You’ll know Kind & Generous, for sure, possibly others. It’s jazzy, drift-away music that is sweet without being precious.
Two thumbs way up.
