Non-Prog CD Reviews

Juliette Jules

Black Crow EP

Review by Gary Hill

Everything on this EP is mellow. It has a lot in common with dreamy alternative pop. Comparisons to ladies like Jewel are also warranted. This is quite effective. Nothing really stands out a lot, but rather there is sort of a blanket quality to the set.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2014  Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Johnny Was

Folk, Americana and modern pop music all merge on this compelling number. It’s mellow, but has a lot of energy. There is some jazz in this mix, too.

Black Crow
As much as I liked the opener, this one is better yet. It has a great balance between extremely sedate and understated music and more powered up stuff. The mix has some great symphonic elements, too. This is pretty and powerful.
The Game
Jazz and folk music and more merge on this bouncy little number. Somehow this one feels more organic and a bit more vulnerable. It’s also more playful.
Hallelujah
There are no huge changes on this song. Still, the vocal performance is evocative and powerful and it’s one of the best tunes here.
To the Mountains
Anyone looking for something drastically different would be disappointed. Still, this is dreamy and atmospheric in a lot of ways. It might be my favorite song of the set.
