    A Huge Disappointment

    If this CD enjoys financial sucess, it will only be because (like me ), thousands of Diana Krall fans bought the thing with well-founded anticipation of another example of her unquestionable genius. Unfortunately, this offering features compositions by Elvis Costello that ( typical of his generation ) have absolutely no value in the repertoire. Elvis Costello has not contributed one meaningful piece of music in his entire career, and none can fe found here. A huge disappointment.

    What a Snooze!!!!!

    It is late at night and I'm listening to A Girl In the Other Room and I can barely stay awake. I have all of Diana Krall's CDs - some I play round the clock - others I never play. This latest CD will sadly fall into the latter category. While her voice is absolutely fabulous, the songs are lifeless, draggy and horribly unattractive. I have tickets to see Diana on June 20 - I hope she sings her "regular" bill of fare and none of these songs.

    Girl in the Other Room

    Definitely not the Diana Krall we've heard before. The CD has potential, but dies off quickly. Very dull to say the least. If I had one word to describe it - BORING!

    Girl in the Other Room

    There are two songs that jump out as the old Diana Krall, but for the most part this recording is dull. You can pick the two songs once you listen to it. As a huge fan of hers I was very disappointed with this CD. It sounded like she was bored for the most part. Her format differs here as her husband Elvis Costello must have influenced her arrangements. I'm not an Elvis Costello fan.

    Very Slow, Very Blue, Very Depressing

    I am a big Krall fan. However, this CD was a big disappointment to me. Not one song gets my toes tapping like her previous CDs. I like a good blue jazzy song every once and awhile, but not every sing song on the CD.
