  1. The darker, more mischievous mood at work is perfectly complemented by arrangements that are as inventive as they are austere.
  2. This collection of quaint, feel-good numbers is not going to set the world alight, but it offers something warm and comforting to come home to.

    The majority of Not Too Late hums with a placid darkness and neurosis which is as delicious as it is unexpected. [Feb 2007, p.104]
  4. Yes, there could be more new ground broken in this material, but this does not necessarily equate to artistic diffidence.
  5. Sonically, at least, the album takes only a small step away from the latte-lover mainstream.
  6. Norah's most personal collection of songs to date.
  7. That voice is still "that voice," but gravity was never what made it fly.

    Not Too Late, the third release from Norah Jones, still showcases her beautiful voice, but I think the lyrics could've cut a little deeper than they did. Expand

    A little too much guitar and not enough piano. 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. Expand
