Performance:   Sonics:
A little over-rated!
Difficult to get through the whole album, the songs start to resemble each other.
The clarity and tonality of voice and instruments is great, but this is the only sacd I cannot listen to in 5 channels: Her voice is distributed throughout the channels, and the instruments cannot be positioned in the soundfield either!
Actually, I use this to show friends how surround music should not be mixed.
In stereo, it's worth the effort... play it in the background, fairly quietly, and pretend you're in a piano bar, but don't expect more than that.

Performance:   Sonics:  
I was a big fan of hers before she started to play and sing in commercial frame...very good piano player and singer...during her trio years ALA Nat King Cole...I thought... great...!! now we have a new generation performers to pass on the classic styles to the youngesters....for me she started to decline begining her last two albums....may be she is great for some new audience she has found...good for them...but a big loss for jazz's interesting she is trying to find new pop listeners with uninteresting songs..( most of these songs were written by her husband Ellvis Costello)...and... cross the ocean Rod Stewart is trying cross to the jazz listeners with the American Song Books ...what Diana used to songs on this CD can not survive more than few playing times...recording quality is okay...looks like there were too many people at the mixing board trying to decide what to do...because..the sound mix is just never know what is what...? another good performer left the real music sad...

Performance:   Sonics:    
OK, this is the last DK album I will ever buy. I've given her a chance based on all the rave audiophile reviews. And I bought this album because it was "more intimate, immediate, and emotional." Hahahahahahahaha! It's more elevator music with a touch, and I mean a touch more emotion than previous albums (which I've given to friends). But really now, if you want female vocals pls listen to Eva Cassidy, Norah Jones, Alison Krauss, or even (and I'll lose many of you here :) Madona... at least she sounds like she cares. Listening to this album is like making love to a fridged woman.
