  • Summary: New husband Elvis Costello co-wrote six of the tunes on this latest disc from platinum-selling jazz vocalist Diana Krall.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 5 out of 10
  2. Negative: 0 out of 10
  1. Alternately poignant and playful. [30 Apr 2004, p.161]
  2. This bold recording is a jazz record made with care, creativity, and a wonderfully intimate aesthetic fueling its 12 songs.
  3. The pretty ballads meditating on the vast wilderness and lonely highways of the great white north provide the perfect showcase for Krall's sultry voice and Costello's classic melodies.
  4. The Girl In The Other Room represents an experiment for Krall, and not an entirely successful one, but at the end of the record, having demonstrated the confidence to explain herself, she comes out with some of her most persuasive music yet.
  5. 60
    Starts strong and finishes weak, but it's forgivable considering the gems contained in this 12-song set. [May 2004, p.97]
  6. Unfortunately, the spell breaks down and the songs grow tedious as the album nears its end, practically running out of a steam like an emotional rollercoaster stranded at the bottom of the tracks.
  7. 40
    For all their craft, the songs are bland and vague. [May 2004, p.126]
