The more ambitious she gets, the better. Now we can see an artist with an almost unlimited horizon, who continues to grow with phenomenally rapidity. Sellers of Flowers and The Trapper and The Furrier are the standouts here, as she adopts an almost Jacques Brel - like intensity and power. Melodies are theatrical, surprising and complex. Her voice has the power of a firehose and she has a left piano hand with the power of Beethoven. The other songs are no slouches either, as she comes out with her most even album yet. Let's hope her anti-folk fans will follow where she leads.
