Norah Jones: Not Too Late
On Jan 30th 2007 Norah Jones released her third album entitled “Not Too Late”. All 13 songs were written or co-written by her—making this her most personal album yet. The lead single is “Thinking about you”. Jones blends her usual combination of soul, folk, country, jazz and pop on this album. Her thinly veiled political criticism perhaps makes this a more serious album than previous efforts, but it is just as enjoyable.
My only criticism is that it is easy to listen to the entire album without noticing that the songs have changed. I find her voice beautiful and calming, but quite often the songs sound very similar and one seems to blend into another. This isn’t always a bad thing and it does lend to some wonderful background music, but I just didn’t feel that any particular song stuck out on its own.
