five star: simply the best debut release ever. in my opinion the best conceived album since neil young's "after the gold rush" and george harrison's "all things must pass"

This re-release contains three demo songs by 22-year-old Anna Nalick. Until this release, "Drink Me" was only available on the Japanese Import and the other two were just buried in her library of songs. Did you know that she wrote Drink Me after reading "East of Eden" when she was about 16 or 17 years old? That might help you get an idea of how eloquent and mature this young lady is. She is wise beyond her years, and she admits that she would have fit in better if she were born in the early 1900's. She writes music in a way so that 50 years from now, her grandkids won't say "Oh, Grandma, that's so 2005" but so it will be as timeless as the Gershwin tunes she loves to listen to. I purchased the original album when it first came out in April of '05, and I haven't been able to put it down since. She is such a humble, down-to-earth person, and it is refreshing to see. After almost every show, she sits for as long as the venue lets her (and sometimes even after the lights go out) to sign autographs and meet her fans. Her live shows never disappoint, as she interacts with the crowd as if she'd known them for years. She's not afraid to share her stories, and her honesty is one of her finest qualities. This re-release is a must have for any fan of the "singer-songwriter" genre. Fans of Sarah McLachlan, Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, Alanis Morissette, John Mayer, etc. will truly appreciate this album.

I purchased this CD about 2 weeks ago and its been in my cd player ever since. I love every song on it and I've recommended it to everyone I know. The lyrics are beautiful and really touching. Buy this CD. Anna - Keep up the good work!

If any of you saw the 2-part bomb episode on Grey's Anatomy that started immediately after the Super Bowl, this song is played at the end of the 2nd part. That's as far as I'll go if you saw it, you KNOW where it was played. If you didn't, watch it this summer, they would be stupid not to repeat it. Anyway, I can't help thinking of this scene when I hear the song come on the radio. It's a disservice to the song since it's so good.

I've been waiting for this CD since I heard "Breathe (2am)" on the radio. I couldn't wait to hear soundclips online. And I just went out on my lunchbreak to buy the CD. Nalick's voice is just beautiful, clear, and honest. There is just enough instrumentation to lend itself beautifully without being overbearing or so meandering as to be pointless. Great first CD for Nalick.

Anna has recently put out one of those albums that you don't push the seek button while you're listening to it! She's become the artist that you listen to whenever you want music...no matter what mood you're in!

Granted that this isn't my usual genre of music (I'm not even sure what to call this genre), I couldn't help but love Anna Nalick's debut CD, "Wreck of the Day". Her single '2am' appealed to me on a rather personal level: I work nights, and I heard this song at about the time of the title. Moreover, it captured my mood almost perfectly; a thin line between hope and despair, aware but powerless, detached but compassionate, afraid to love or not to, afraid to speak but too moved to be silent. I have found the other songs on the CD to be just as powerful, although none struck such a personal chord with me. I eagerly await Ms. Nalick's next CD.

I love this CD because its one you can listen to from the first song to the last. I played it twice in one night. Its great. Anna is new and fresh and I like that when I buy music.

I can't wait for this album. Of her three new songs, I've heard Drink Me and thirty second previews of the others. I can't wait to hear them! This album is such a great birthday present for me. 7/11 is officially the greatest day ever!

Anna writes her own lyrics, and she's actually good at it! She's not the girl who sings these fluffy songs with a "la la la" chorus focusing on an old boyfriend. From fragile songs "Breathe (2 AM)" and "Catalyst" to more rockier tunes "Consider This" and "Paper Bag" Anna sings beautifully and has made an album that you will never want to stop listening to!

Ashlee Simpson, Jessica Simpson, Pussycat Dolls, Anna Nalick one of these things is not like the others, one of these things doesnt belong who is it? Anna Nalick. Why, because, unlike the other "talent" listed here, Nalick has actual, measureable talent!!! Miss Nalick has created the best, most insightful recording since Alanis Morrisette's Jagged Little Pill. In listening to the words that Nalick pulled mostly from her personal dairies, she has opened herself up from the get-go, hiding little, if anything, from the public eye, and ear. But, unfortunately, since she hasnt linked herself with any Hip-Hop producers or "talent" (there's that word again!), she has in some ways been overlooked, other than the smash "Breathe- 2am". While a solid effort, there are other stronger songs here "Satellite", and perhaps the best, "In the Rough", despite one reviewers claim that it was "overproduced"..this probably coming from a person that listens to "Chipmunk Rock" on a daily basis, "Rough" shows Nalick's ability to turn up the tough girl volume, while still displaying an innate sexuality and vulnerability. If you havent taken a moment to listen to this effort, one of the year's best... you're missing something special.

Though I bought Anna Nalick's CD for her hit song "2 am", I ended up loving it for the title track "Wreck of the Day". This is a great "headed home from work" CD to listen to and decompress with. One thing I liked about her voice in particular is she sounds almost as though she could have done Country music but opted instead for a more soulful and fulfilling sound (in my humble opinion).

Every song is artfully arranged and performed. Give her a try.

Anna Nalick has great singing skills. I loved a lot of her songs like: Wreck of The Day, Breathe (2 a.m.), and Satallite, and Paper Bag. How could anyone NOT like this hot-shot album?

This is some of the best music I've purchased in a long time. Anyone who likes Nalick's song "Breathe" from its radio play will enjoy the rest of the CD even more.

My daughter and I watch Joan of Arcadia every week together and in the last couple of episodes we've heard Anna's music and fell in love with it. We're getting her CD ASAP.

I had never heard of Anna Nalick before my wife and I saw her perform live as an opening act for Rob Thomas. I was so impressed with her energy and raw talent that I purchased her CD. The girl writes her own lyrics with insight beyond her years. This is definitely a CD I would recommend to anyone.

I really like her. She is a great singer. I also like how the music flows

She has this voice that's wise but relatable, strong but kind, its actual music. Hearing the song breath (2a.m.) reminded me of why i listen to the radio.

What's not to like about Anna Nalick? She's superb! I can't even put into words how much I love this CD! She captivates me with each and every song. I listen to this CD over and over again. I pretty much breathe it. I have only met her twice, but those were the two most memorable times ever. I was so nervous each time because I couldn't believe I was going to meet the woman whose songs fill my head with every moment. Each time she was down to earth. The first time I wasn't even supposed to meet her because I didn't have some radio ticket, but she came on the other side of the gate anyway! And each time, she took time to talk to not only me, but everyone who had something to say. BUY THIS CD! It's already gold, and now we have to make it platinum! Peace, Love, and Happiness. Courtney
