    This is her most complete record. All of the strengths honed on previous recordings are brought to the forefront here, featuring tasteful production (as opposed to the underproduced "You Think It's Like This But Really It's Like This" and the overwhelmingly layered "Advisory Committee") and beautiful performances. She cuts the bullshit on "C'mon Miracle" and shows that she This is her most complete record.

    It's not as good as her second disc, which was not as good as her first, but it's still pretty good. If you're a fan of hers you'll still like it. It grew on me quite a bit with repeated listens.

  1. Though C'mon Miracle doesn't have the truly standout songs that made Advisory Committee so great, it is still a consistent piece of work that delivers on quality songwriting and musicianship throughout.

    She creates an atmosphere of such intimate ease, you feel as if she's singing for you alone. [4 June 2004, p.80]
  3. Mirah, it appears, has made the album we've been waiting for.
