Little Voice

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Lymangrover
For her first major outing, Little Voice, Sara Bareilles puts forth an intimate, emotionally charged album that sounds remarkably polished for a fledgling self-taught songwriter/performer. In fact, her voice even stands up to professionally trained pop divas like Christina Aguilera. Her only potential downfall is that she fits so perfectly in the adult contemporary female pianist mold that comparisons are inevitable -- Bareilles' vocal range is similar to Fiona Apple and she bears a striking physical resemblance to a merged composite of Vanessa Carlton and Michelle Branch. Despite the plethora of comparable looking and sounding artists, she still manages to stand out....

All Music Guide - Jason Lymangrover
For her first major outing, Little Voice, Sara Bareilles puts forth an intimate, emotionally charged album that sounds remarkably polished for a fledgling self-taught songwriter/performer. In fact, her voice even stands up to professionally trained pop divas like Christina Aguilera. Her only potential downfall is that she fits so perfectly in the adult contemporary female pianist mold that comparisons are inevitable -- Bareilles' vocal range is similar to Fiona Apple and she bears a striking physical resemblance to a merged composite of Vanessa Carlton and Michelle Branch. Despite the plethora of comparable looking and sounding artists, she still manages to stand out. The songs are sultry and generally upbeat, and delivered in a soulful manner with polished production and arrangement, but her X factor is in her ability to make it all sound unforced and very, very easy. Unquestionably, she's a natural with a huge voice and personality that shine through with spirited energy here. Perhaps the best and most original track is the ultra-peppy think "Benny and the Jets" "Love on the Rocks" not to be confused with the Neil Diamond number. With a warm wah-wah guitar and meandering Motown-esque harmonies, it makes for a perfect summertime love song. Undoubtedly her expertise is writing love songs like this, evident by song titles like "Love Song" and "One Sweet Love," but there are enough uniquely spun takes on the subject to make it interesting. In "Fairytale," children's stories are used as a metaphor for escapism and dealing with depression, and with the moody ballad "Gravity," falling in love is compared to getting caught in an inescapable gravitational pull. In the latter tearjerker of a tune, she shows off her chops with a song-stopping vocal crescendo, further proving that she has a style that's something special, even among all the stiff competition.

    Perfect

    The whole CD is really great, which I was crossing my fingers about since the only song I had heard before I bought it was Love Song. I love every song, and even my boyfriend likes the CD (after I forced him to listen to it). CD doesn't get old, just gets better every time I listen to it. If only the media celebrated talent like Sarah's, the state of the music industry wouldn't be as pathetic as it is now. I'll take Sarah over Fergie any day.

    Never Overplayed

    This is one of the few CDs that I can Listen to over and over again and never get sick of it. Love Song and Fairytale are two songs that I usually play everyday. Not only is are the lyrics mind blowingly insightful but the use of the piano sets a beautiful undertone. These are the type of songs that inspire other people to write songs.

    LITTLE VOICE?

    There is nothing "little" about this singers talent. Her songs are easy to listen to but its her voice that really grabs you. You can feel her emotions when you listen to her cd. By that i mean when she singing about love lost you believe she has lost love. that she knows what she is singing. And in a wold of carbon cut outs she seems to me to be an orginal. I bought this cd on a whim and i'm glad that i did! i listen to it everyday: on my way to work, at work, and even before i go to sleep. Its safe to say that i'm hooked. i cant wait for her to release another cd.

    I can listen to every track....

    And I can't say that about many albums. Well, actually, now that I think about it, I'm not sure I can say that about any other albums. I love every single one of her songs. Some more than others, such as Between the Lines, City, Gravity, and Fairytale. But all of them are not only listenable "questionable spelling/whether it's actually a word", but extraodinary. I mean, there's no other way to word that. The melodies-- haunting-- and yet, she's actually singing. Who knew that was possible? My definite favorite singer right now.

    Bought it for one song, but enjoy all the others

    This is a great CD. Perfect for a long drive or just to listen to while relaxing. While I am partial to the first 5 songs on the album, the whole thing is enjoyable. To me, her voice and style is reminiscent of Fiona Apple's first album "Tidal" but with a lighter vocal quality.

    It's very rare to find a CD where every song is good. I first heard it in Starbucks and now I can't take it out of my car.

    You couldn't ask for more!

    I got this CD for my birthday, by request, because I was hooked on "Love Song" and it only got better from there! I love every song on the CD, but in a very different way. I have used this CD to chillout, to dance to with my kids and to stayway in the car while driving at night. How many albums can you say all those things about?!? Sara has something to say and she has a way of makeing you want to listen. I tell everyone how great this album is...Sara you have a new #1 fan!

    "Love Song" is what makes you buy it, "Bottle it Up", "Fairytale", and "Gravity" is why you keep it! I don't buy cds very often, so when I do I expect them to be great, and this one surpassed my expectations. Very poetic in lyrics and reminiscent of Norah Jones, this CD is perfect for Pop and Jazz lovers alike! I can definitely expect Sara to when a Grammy this year!

    5 Stars, Amazing.

    "Little Voice" is one of those albums that comes out of the blue and gives you hope for the music industry. Sara Bareilles demonstrates that she is an artist to be reckoned with on songs like the beautifully constructed pop-tune "Love Song," the soulful-beyond-her-years "Many the Miles," and the gritty, angry "Come Round Soon." Do yourself a favor and buy this album.

    "Little Voice" is poignant, catchy, and brilliant!

    If you're looking for original songs sung with soulfulness, then be sure to check out "Little Voice!" This album is sure to move people to the core! It contains songs that are poignant and upbeat songs that will have you moving! I can attest that Sara is a true musician and songwriter! I had music classes with Sara back in high school. This album is sure to move people! I predict many awards too! Congrats Sara!
