Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

MADEiLINE PEYROUX

Half the Perfect World

2006-09-04

On her third release Madeleine covers some old ones. Lawrence Welk never heard them done quite this well. Many of the tracks have that slow shuffle wing heard at senior dances. None the less, this womans beautiful voice can breath new life into any old dead tune. Blue Alert is taken from the Leonard Cohen Ajani collaboration that just came out. The sad Joni Mitchell Christmas song, River, is to die for when the two Extraordinary voices ombine, thanks to KD. Of course, She has to include one sexy French pop song. Ive never seen this woman sing but her voice leads me to think she is one of the great beauties of our time. TD
