Overview

Rumble Doll proves that Patti Scialfa is more than a beautiful redhead with good connections. The 12 songs on the album don't necessarily jump out at the listener on the first listen. Instead, it's more of a slow seduction. Scialfa, who penned all the songs on the album, incorporates a '60s-style vibrato reminiscent of Ronnie Spector; however, the production is low-key compared to '60s girl singers produced by Phil Spector. There's not a bad song in the bunch, and the title track is a gem. Mr. Scialfa is a lucky man to have such a lovely and talented wife.

I read the reviews and they made the CD sound great. Well, I listened to the samples and was completely turned off by this woman's singing voice. She doesn't have the beautiful voice that Sarah McLachlan has. So, if you want the exact opposite of Sarah McLachlan's voice, buy this, because it's very harsh. Please listen to all of the samples and see for yourself.

I bought this a little over a year ago and still play it constantly. I love Patti's writing style, her lyrics are never trite. Each song is graceful and distinctly poetic. Plus the musical settings are a treat for the ears, with all the catchy hooks, nice guitar playing, and sensual rhythms. The best, though, is Patti's voice - soft and sweet and mellow, the ultimate in lovely. Provokes repeated listenings for its great delivery and emotionally true music...in the end, very nearly perfect.

Patti is such a talent! I wish more people had discovered this CD. Unfortunately, most will only think she was able to record an album because of her connections. But she is a true talent in her own right. Get Rumble Doll and you'll know what I'm talking about--she has such a great unique voice and the songs all have such beautiful, deep meaning. One of my absolute favorite CDs.

This CD is my new favorite. Every cut is a gem, from the lyrics to the music. It's rare for me to find a CD where there isn't at least one tune that I skip over. Not the case in Rumble Doll. I think she is one of the music industry's best kept secrets.

This album is excellent. Every tack is great. Patty has an interesting and captivating voice. She has written the songs herself and they are from the heart of real woman. They aren't over-produced and processed. We need to hear more from this talented lady.
