Little Broken Hearts - BLUE NOTE/EMI
FILTER Grade: 82%
By Jon Falcone on May 7, 2012
Produced by Danger Mouse following their collaboration on Rome last year, Norah Jones’ Little Broken Hearts could serve as Pt. 2, as we are treated to vintage sounds and Jones’ trite, ever pleasant crooning again. Some songs only contain moments of magic from the vocals, though (“She’s Only 22”); others are knock-out wonderful, and untouchable by the lesser likes of Lana Del Rey, et al. (“Miriam”). With Jones these days, you may not know exactly what you’re getting, but you know it’s going to be great.
