  1. There simply isn't another singer working in pop music now that holds a candle to Jones.
  2. This is no more a perfect album than "Come Away With Me," but its highlights again carry the stamp of a singer whose talent is strong and whose vision is true.

    A better record than Come Away--less piano bar, more honkey-tonk. [Apr 2004, p.93]
  4. It should neither shock old fans nor disappoint those hoping to hear her reach for more.
  5. The vibe is more early Bonnie Raitt than early Sarah Vaughan. [13 Feb 2004, p.70]
  6. 70
    Yes, it's an unchallenging and even deeply conservative record. But its class is positively aristocratic. [Mar 2004, p.99]
  7. Feels Like Home is so inoffensive you have trouble remembering whether you put it on.

A loose blend of jazz, folk and country, coupled with her clear, almost breathy vocals. Right from the beautiful surreal cover art, you know you?re in for a treat. ?Sunrise?, the lead off single, opens the cd to good effect. It?s a light, breezy song. ?Carnival town? is an excellent cabaret style number, one of 6 songs penned or co penned by Jones. ?In the morning? is another beauty, with some great bass playing. ?Humble me? is a beautiful song of contrition and forgiveness, almost Gospel like. ?Above ground?, The long way home? (with delightful guitar strumming), The prettiest thing? (very pretty song), and ?Don?t miss you at all? (a tender piano ballad which samples Duke Ellington to good effect), are other standouts from this stark, understated gem. This cd will do your collection no harm. Expand

    Oh yes, a 10 from me. The purest voice on the planet. I have not purchased any CD's ever until I heard this voice. Keep those songs coming!

    Norah Jones: The beautiful, sweet and shy girl, winning five Grammy awards, proves to what came on their second album.
    A record that is not a revolution in the music industry or in Jones's career, but it is extremely satisfactory and better than Come Away with me.
    Feels Like homes still so sweet, as his previous album, exploring jazz-blues melodies and a big part of country, one basically sound and extremely quiet record. It will not offend old fans and new fans can captivate.
    The album reaches the pick already in the beginning, with the soft "Sunrise", the time to fall in love with Norah in "What Am i to You" and excess sugar in "Those sweet words" and "Be Here To Love Me "and the animation in " Creepin 'In ".
    The rest of the album does not appear so, but still very well organized and worked.
    Lyrically perhaps Fells Like Home does not offer much, making the sound more interesting.
    Completing Norah jones is a very talented girl, who certainly deserves the phenomenon of her second album.

    I'm sure I'm not the first nor the last to make this observation, but this album really falls flat compared to her previous one. I'm sure I'm not the first nor the last to make this observation, but this album really falls flat compared to her previous one. Whereas "Come Away With Me" was full of emotive, catchy and brooding songs, "Feels Like Home" feels like background music par excellence: sultry vocals over bland beats and rather pedestrians songwriting. It's too bad, because this singer's got talent. Expand

    Ms. Jones has one of those angelic voices you can listen to all day. This album starts off well enough with the beautiful "Sunrise" using Ms. Jones has one of those angelic voices you can listen to all day. This album starts off well enough with the beautiful "Sunrise" using ever aspect of that voice but then goes nowhere from there. Her first album is a masterpiece but this one falls way short. We can only hope she quickly releases a third album along the lines of her first. Expand
