Jones- Not Too Late
Reviewed by Angelique Velez
Not Too Late is the highly anticipated
third release from Norah Jones. This cd includes
thirteen tracks that were either written or co written
by Norah herself. Not Too Late brings back the soulful
sounds and seductive voice that Norah is known for.
These selections are very personal and give her
fans a good insight of her life. With titles like
“Wish I could,” “Sinkin’
Soon,” “Wake Me Up,” “Be
My Somebody” and “Broken,” Norah
shows her fans the most personal side of her yet.
I actually enjoyed the entire album so much that
it’s hard for me to pick out some of my favorites.
“Sinkin’ Soon” has a unique sound
from the 1960’s that stands out, combine this
with Norah’s voice this track will be a definite
hit. “Not Too Late” and “Broken”
show us that Norah goes through the emotions that
many of us do at one time or another: heartbreak,
love, losing and gaining relationships and finding
a sense of hope. Not Too Late shows us
that Norah is very much like a normal person and
that she experiences things just like the rest of
us. In life we all go through different experiences
that lead us to change our emotions. We can be happy
at one moment and completely depressed at the next;
this junior album from Norah Jones portrays this
perfectly. She lets her fans into her head and shows
us that it’s not so clear and clean cut. Each
song provides a different side of her and when they
are all put together they represent life, not only
the life of Norah Jones, but a life that many of
us can relate with; one full of change and adaptations.
Not Too Late will help you relate with
a very talented artist and will make you feel as
if you are a part of her world. Don’t miss
out on the experience.
