Neko Case has crafted an album whose quiet drift only adds to its power; it's hard to say if hanging out with Nick Cave on tour had much of an influence on her, but this disc sounds a bit like Case's version of The Boatman's Call, a personal exploration of the heart and soul that proves sad and beautiful can often walk hand in hand.
JudyDec 6, 2002Fantastic CD! I have played Track #7 about 25 times today.
AdinaAug 22, 2002Run DON NOT Walk to the nearest record store to buy this album! Neko Case is simply amazing!
KellanFeb 15, 2007Neko Case is out of control. This is the third album I've bought, and I just keep getting drawn further and further in by that voice and those creepy, creepy lyrics. I think I'm working backwards chronologically, which is fine by me, as long as there's still more by her out there to get my hands on.… Expand
StephenBMar 29, 2003How could something of such beautiful, lyrical and even nostalgic yearning also seem so pee-in-your pants scary and defiant? This album has left echoes banging around in my head for days now. Holy moses, I think I'm in love with this woman! … Expand
KateBOct 7, 2003I'm With Jenz F - screw Pam W, I have fallen in love with Neko Case. At first I only liked track 11 on Blacklisted, but now I love the whole album. It goes down as one of my all time favorite albums. #5, #1 and #11 are classics.… Expand
WhatNov 2, 2005Neko Case possesses the best voice in music today. So powerful and emotional, yet she can be restrained and wistful and still move me. I get chills down my spine everytime I hear her boom "deep red bells" from the song of the same name, and tears in my eyes during the soft ballad "I Wish I Was the Moon." I'm not normally a country fan, but this is what real country should sound like. Not Shania Twain, Garth Brooks, or Big & Rich (puke), but Johnny Cash. Loretta Lynn. Patsy Cline. Old school. If you're looking for what Nashville craps out onto the airwaves nowadays, you won't find it here. Just a helluva singer singing her heart out.… Expand
JenzFAug 2, 2003Good record, moody and consistent. Case's lyrics and vocal style please me. To Pat W., Maybe Nashville won't bite and thank God for that, it sounds like you bite Nashville's ass anyway.… Expand
