Incidentally, it's not due in the States for another couple of weeks, but it's out in Europe today, and the reviews from the UK press are all raves.

I'm still dismayed that my epic interview with her about Hadestown went unpublished. Someday I'll write it up and post it to my blog.

I agree. It doesn't have the narrative continuity of Hadestown, but the songs are very well written. It's a very fine album.
Sorry, Christian-- I'm just now seeing this. My short answer is that I think the album is very good, and almost (but not quite) on the level of Hadestown. So if you're only going to buy one Anais record, Hadestown is the one I'd recommend, but if you have it and like it, you will surely enjoy the new one too.

A Venti Frappuccino (Mocha Cookie Crumble) is better than 99.9% of all recorded music. Anais' album is perfectly fine, but not that fine. Good call.
Sorry, but I already spent my $5 on a venti Frappuccino.

I would've linked that in our more recent Anais threads, but the concert, which was posted a week ago, refers to Young Man in America as her latest CD. I'm listening now, and am guessing the music is mostly from Young Man and earlier, not from the newer projects
