  1. With a surfeit of samey country-rock ballads, Not Too Late ultimately proves rather a long haul. [Feb 2007, p.98]
  2. It's pretty music, beautifully performed. But Norah Jones has more to offer than this.
  3. Norah's most personal collection of songs to date.
  4. Its ragged, unfinished nature illustrates that she's more interested in pursuing her art than recycling Come Away with Me, and if this third album isn't as satisfying as that debut, it nevertheless is a welcome transitional effort that proves her artistic heart is in the right place.
  5. While Not Too Late is a shade darker than her mega-selling, Grammy-winning template, it's highly unlikely to win all that many new converts, and fans may find this album a little bit of a slog in places.
  6. That voice is still "that voice," but gravity was never what made it fly.
  7. 40
    Again, the results are a mutant virus of gorgeous and bland, grainy and slick. [Mar 2007, p.135]

I know she was trying something new and for that she is to be commended but sticking to what worked so well on the previous albums would have been a better choice. Full Review »

    I agree, this cd is very boring. Never before in my life I regretted more that I bought a cd. At least on Soul Mining from The The there is I agree, this cd is very boring. Never before in my life I regretted more that I bought a cd. At least on Soul Mining from The The there is one good song, this album has none! It sounds lame, I wish I could return it. Full Review »
