  • Summary: The New Pornographers singer (and accomplished solo artist) offers up a live set of originals and eclectic covers, backed by The Sadies.

  1. A breathtaking 35 minutes. [12 Nov 2004, p.122]
  2. It's not a Case overview, but a standalone country-rock classic.
  3. Tigers cannot compete with an actual Case show, of course, and after Blacklisted we don't really need to be reminded of her talent, but, hell, why not?
  4. About as good as a live album can get.
  5. The only problem with this crackling sampler is that it clocks in at just 34 minutes.
  6. Case is a singer first and a songwriter second, and The Tigers Have Spoken is afflicted with the same malady as Blacklisted: Many of its songs are too short, clocking in under two minutes.
  7. It never sounds like much more than a bar band playing songs for friends.
