  • Summary: The singer-songwriter's first recording sessions with a full band were so productive, there was enough material for two albums. 'Shadow' will be followed by the second (and more upbeat) batch of songs in early 2007.

  1. Shadow simply holds together better than recent Jurado efforts.
  2. 80
    There's something curiously inviting about this understated music. [Nov 2006, p.120]
  3. Jurado does downtrodden and mournful better than most, but concentrated strings of songs about being "restless 'til my death," "sadness in her eyes," and a hotel hospital add up to a tearstained emotional assault delivered with virtually no relief.
  4. While Jurado's records often alternate between vanishing ballads and melancholy pop-rockers, Shadow revolves entirely around the former-- the songs are unstintingly slow, delicate, and sparse to the brink of abstraction.
  5. The feel is late night, on the edge of quiet, and full of pathos.
  6. Individually, the tracks are every bit as good as anything else he’s ever written; as a whole, however, the album is too much of the same thing, as one glum tale follows another.
