  1. The kinder, gentler, safe-for-consumption-by-sorority-girls version is fine, but it's merely entertaining where it used to be enchanting.
  2. Gomez ups the musical ante with A New Tide, a brilliant 11-song collection of lyrical jewels embellished by colorful and unusual textural arrangements that a dynamics-loving jazz band could admire.
  3. There is some nice arrangements here, even if too many of the tracks sound like they belong on some type of chillout/easy listening compilation.
