Really silky voice, gorgeous instrumentation, at one point during the title track I saw the moon, big and gold, on my walk, and had a bit of a moment. Speaking of Glastonbury, I imagined lying in the sun early on a Sunday afternoon, as these sweet sounds floated over me from the Pyramid Stage, and it was pleasant. But, yeah, pleasant, sweet, silky, but nothing that really hit me for six. As the album went on I started thinking more about my potential scoring system than the music, which wasn't a good sign. I then started thinking the album was mostly parts that sound like music from The Sims, with parts that would fit the background to a middle class garden party. If I was planning to hand out 3s like social media references to Big Jet TV, then I would to this, but instead it gets a...

Love this album by Grapevine, TX-bred Norah Jones. She's a north Texas treasure. We went to the same middle school, but she went to a rival high school, but that's forgiven. Such an amazing voice and fantastic musicality. These are classic tunes and amazing that she was only 21 when this was recorded. Sounds like a veteran; a natural. Great listen and so happy this is on the list. Although, this album is not included in my 2018 version of the Book. Still happy to listen to it.

This was a great way to start off the list! Jones has very fine, detailed control over her voice; I really love how she’s able to demonstrate her range while not going overboard or getting too loud. She has a gentle, soothing voice that suits the material of her songs perfectly. It was entrancing; I like the light use of percussion, and how she wasn’t afraid to use a gentle touch when it came to the instruments to really let her voice shine through. Also, they were the perfect length. Overall, even though I usually don’t care for this type of music, I totally loved the album and will listen to this album and the rest of her music in the future.

I don't think I properly appreciated this album when it came out. But now, 20 years later, I understand why Norah Jones was such a phenomenon. Listening to this album just feels so good. Like slipping into cool, clean sheets after a long day. Or like a glass of whiskey, a comfy chair, and a good book. It's such a comfortable listening experience without being boring in the least. I've got absolutely nothing negative to say about this album. What a treasure.

Este disco es una joya: para empezar, la voz de Norah Jones ya es una garantía, pero encima tiene una calidad en la parte musical y en la instrumentación que ya quisieran muchos discos del estilo. Cortito y variado, que se va rápido. Quizá mi pequeño 'pero' sería que no hay una canción realmente movida, por lo que es un disco ideal para una mañana de domingo, pero no para otro momento.

I was in my early 30s when this album was released, and it was everywhere. I did like it when I first heard it, and, sure, it was played so often on the airwaves and elsewhere that I grew tired of it, but giving it another listen all the way through for the first time in probably 15 or more years, and well past the context now of that time when it got played too often so it was all-too-easily mocked, I think it's great. She's a solid songwriter, assembled some fantastic musicians, and it all coalesces nicely around her gorgeous voice. I would love to hear her take on some real bluesy, dark jazz (she very well might have; I haven't looked into it).

I've never heard this album but the songs here are nostalgically familliar. Wonderful and soothing voice pairs perfectly with the acoustic accompaniment. Sooo 2002 A lot of the songs on this 14 track, to my ear, sound very similar. That could be because this isn't a genre for me but it's worth noting the high volume and low diversity

Entspannt, zurückgelehnt und minimalistisch, auf jeden Fall schön. Die Blues und Jazz lastigeren Nummern toll, die Balladaen bissl süßlich.

A debut album with a force of clarity that doesn't need much wind in the lungs or adornment in the arrangements to be heard over the din of popular music and appreciated. Norah's vocals delicately blend aspects of Jazz and Country with the touch of a smoke ring and are irrefutably alluring and playful. Tracks like the cover of Hank Williams' "Cold Cold Heart" show the playfulness, while tracks like "Turn Me On" show the allure. Upon first listening, I'd say I'm most fond of the track 'Nightingale'. It layers and unfurls like silk sheets. What I enjoyed about it the most though is that the whole band had more of an opportunity to stretch their legs on this track, than on other tracks. Overall, the album is smooth and comforting like the hum of a loved one's voice while they hug you, and every distinct part is beautiful in its tone and simplicity.

I don’t think I’ve heard anything from her other than “Don’t Know Why,” which is still tolerable despite ridiculous overplay. Anywho, this feels good for a chill Sunday morning. Contemporary pop really isn’t my thing, but her voice is great, she’s a good storyteller, and the arrangements here are super tight and varied. All this being said, this is a loooooonnnnng 45 minutes. Not that there are any particularly bad tracks, it’s simply too much for my tastes, I struggled to hang on as “The Nearness of You” wrapped. 3/5

This defied my expectations in a way I seriously didn't expect- it really started picking up steam as it went along. I thought that the last few songs were the best and most exciting, and honestly wouldn't have minded a couple more like that. The rest of the album is fine, but not really my thing. Jones has a very nice voice, but she's not the commanding force that Sinatra was that makes this kind of music sound as appealing to me as his does. But I can understand why this caught on as much as it did- it's the perfect album for a mid-American mom to play when she needs "alone time". C-

1. Don't know why doesn't do anything for me, probably because I've heard it a million times (like everyone). 2. Seven Years had some cool slide guitar after I thought it was going to continue doing the arpegiated guitar forever. I liked that. 3. Cold Cold Heart's slight bass swing is pretty cool, and I like this song. 4. Feelin' the Same Way was pretty boring. 5. Haven't heard a song that really stood out since Cold Cold Heart 6. I've Got To See You Again is a cool song. Little bit of a gypsy swing thing going on. 7. Last few songs are pretty. Good way to close out the album. 3/5

First time listening to this record. Norah Jones has a great voice, but most of the songs in the top half of the album just don't do much to grab my attention. "I've Got to See You Again" is pretty good with it's slow syncopated beat, and I started to like this album a little more starting here. "Painter Song" was interesting, and "Nightingale" had some great instrumental lines in it. So a few decent tracks in an otherwise very bland album.

This is good. Not quite enough oomph and energy to warrant a 5, but a really nice listen. Went back and played it again straight after I finished it the first time around. Her voice is incredibly soothing, it's a nice, gentle listen. Don't know if I've heard the album as a whole before, obviously knew the opener and a couple of others sounded familiar. In contrast to the Kate Bush album, it keeps up the quality right the way through - although it is a little bit same-y. Reminded me a lot of an Eva Cassidy album that my parents used to have on all the time.

I kind of got what I expected to get. Easy listening. Norah's soft, smooth voice dominates all the songs which pretty much have piano and/or guitar in the background. Very similar sounding songs but, there are some notable ones, her hits ("Don't Know Why" and "Feelin' The Same Way") and "Nightingale" which has good guitar and piano interplay. The music is harmless enough, best suited (for me) for reading a book to or background music while you're eating... I'd also say taking a nap too but that's probably going too far. Some classified this as jazz??? Not sure having piano and acoustic guitar alone automatically puts it in that category. Her voice accompanied by actual jazz would actually sound pretty good though.

Pros: She's got such a genuine, romantic sound that is so alluring. Cons: Maybe I'm jaded by the prevalence of amazing current soft-female-vocal led indie bands these days but the energy of this album isn't really dynamic and doesn't show much besides the one sound that she has. I know that that's like her sound right? it's soft, piano driven pop-jazz, but even the softest cats in jazz get some fast meows in sometime. The most energetic song IMO is "I've got to see you again" which is a wonderful moderate dance-like track that is perfectly ambiguous with it's lyrics that i have no choice but to steal a few lines for my own songs. Misc: production is very clean and well done. I did hear a blip of clipping on her voice on one track, "one flight down" at 2:42 which is hard to find on any professional mix of the last like 25 or so years.

Un album qui a fait un malheur à sa sortie. Je travaillais comme disquaire et on vendait ça à la pelle. Pour faire le contrepoids à Bitches Brew, ici on est dans un jazz qui plaira à un grand public. Elle a une belle voix et j'avoue que c'est ma première écoute sérieuse de l'album dans son ensemble. C'est pas mauvais, mais ça ne réinvente rien. J'ai beaucoup de difficulté avec le jazz vocal et ici ça passe bien. Par contre, je préfère de beaucoup son album Little Broken Hearts produit par Danger Mouse. Ça rejoint plus ce que j'écoute habituellement. Elle a également fait un album avec Billie Joe Armstrong de Green Day. C'est une artiste que je respecte et à laquelle je porte une attention aux nouvelles parutions même si ce n'est pas toujours dans mes goûts. Même si on parle d'un album des années 2000, on peut parler d'un classique.

Bien qu'on l'ai sur-entendu partout pendant des années il y a une raison pour ça et c'est que c'est vraiment bon! La prod est juste malade, la contrebasse sonne vraiment bien, ainsi que tout le reste, le bass drum est deep comme ça se peut pas (Brian Blade quand même!) . C'est smooth et délicat comme son. Les musiciens sont excellants. Wiki dit que Bill Frisell est juste sur la piste 13 mais l'autre guitariste l'imite très bien😄 C'est simple harmoniquement mais c'est terriblement efficace (malgré quelques redondance). Des échos des standards du great amercican songbook, teinté de pop et une touche de Tom Waits par moment. Un peu trop smooth à mon goût pour que j'y retourne souvent mais c'est clairement un album qui mérite d'être sur cette liste . content de l'avoir écouté dans un système correct et non dans un speaker cheap de café avec juste le right channel pcq le left est dans l'autre pièce😄

A big part of me wants to be snarky and say that I don't want Spotify thinking I'm the kind of person that would actually choose to listen to Norah Jones. Or say that I'm in cheesy lounge singer hell right now. But I listened the whole way through and it was perfectly pleasant. Just because this isn't my scene doesn't mean I need to tear down Norah. She's a fabulous singer. And this album was a huge moment in time when it was released. Even if it wasn't a moment for me, it has definitely earned it's propers and its place on this list.

Very good for an easy listening album, probably the best one for a hot beverage at the local cozzy Café. It's really not a bad album, it serves its purpose, but is it really one of the 1001 albums to listen to in your life? I think there's so much more incredible stuff out there than the soundtrack to an afternoon at the local cozzy Café.

People went out of their way to throw hosannas at Norah Jones when this was first released, and then seemingly continued to over-praise it until the world just agreed that Norah was the new Billie Holliday or Ella Fitzgerald. It was all just a bit too much, and waaaaaaaay too soon. But that doesn't take away from the fact that this is a gorgeous debut album. Norah Jones may not be Billie or Ella or Linda Ronstadt, but she certainly seems to be the inspiration for the Sirius XM Channel "The Blend".

It's not something I see myself ever listening to again, but I could totally see why some people would love it. The laid back instrumentals complimented the vocals fairly well. Speaking of those instrumentals, I need to find out who did the guitar work on this record - I was loving it! I could see someone listening to this while getting some work done in a coffee shop or something, that's the kind of vibe it gave off to me.

I'm not sure anyone has ever said 'its really easy to ignore' as praise. It's nice. But nice in a very wash over you without actually doing much to interest you kind of way. It doesn't offend me in the way Sade did. But it really isn't interesting enough to warrant a home on this list (yes it sold millions. So did the Bay City Rollers). She seems to have become far more interesting since.

This album is incredibly pleasant. Norah Jones has a very pleasant voice (soft, intimate, smooth, and sultry, if not a little unsexy), and a pleasant band. They play pleasant arrangements; a little bit jazz, a little bit folk, and little bit country. But nothing offensive, nothing that leaps out. Nothing is too loud, or too fast (or even too slow). It's very pleasant wallpaper. I'm not surprised it sold a bazillion copies in physical media (at a time the industry was starting to collapse), because it is a hard to hate. I will say, that she edits her arrangements really well. Nothing outstays its welcome. No songs much over 4 minutes, and many under 3. She has the great sense not to use every minute of available capacity on a CD, and keeps the whole album to a classic 45 minutes. She interprets the works of many songwriters to give all the material a consistent voice, and I she knows exactly how long to play for. But I would never choose to play this record again.

It’s definitely a plodder - despite Ms. Jones’ silky-gravelly voice. While it’s a pleasant album at times - it reads like a bankers BMW CD changer collection member - or at times one could imagine a cowbro listening to this in his barn or pickup truck. It’s declawed jazz and country at the same time - kind of like Muzak- pleasant but with the right conditions tortuous.

C’est bien fait. C’est un mix de « jazz » (les guillemets sont volontaires) et « country » comme il n’y en avait pas vraiment à ma connaissance.

I've previously stated that there was no good music released in the early 2000s, and this entry continues to supply hard evidence for this assertion. One of the greatest quotes from Star Trek: The Next Generation is "It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not failure, that is life." and this album is the musical embodiment of this observation. There is nothing wrong with this album. Jones' voice is perfect. The production values are superb, the songs are almost faultless. But does it win, given it does so much right? Does it hell as like. Overall, it is musical wallpaper. Beige in a way I've not heard since Taylor Swift's Evermore. Not actually offensive, because that would imply that has affected you in some way, this has the substance of blancmange.

I'm fully confident that enough people like and buy enough Norah Jones albums that my opinion will make not one jot of difference, and neither it should, because she's clearly doing what she loves and has made an album she's really proud of. That said, I'd rather stick my head in a bucket of fireworks than go through this again.

Album z gatunku 15 minut przesluchane, a juz chce sie lulac, a tu jeszcze pol godziny do konca, come away with me jest debiutanckim krazkiem pani Norah Jones, ktora wyglada na to jest dosc popularna artystka biorac pod uwage ilosc grammy ktore nakradla, wiec niby kojarze nazwisko, choc bardziej imie, ale muzyka nic mi nie mowi, tak samo wyglada to po przesluchaniu tej plyty, bo jest to generyczny pop pisany przez x ludzi, produkowany przez kolejne x, wyspiewane przez ladny glos, czyli recepta na mainstreamowy sukces, znalazlo sie na liscie, wiec chyba dziala, tak samo z czescia instrumentalna plyty, ktora kolysze czlowieka do snu, sama pani Jones gra glownie klawisze, reszta natomiast to muzycy sesyjni, ktorych mozna naliczyc z 13, wiec kazdy trak ma niby cos swojego, a jednak brzmia tak podobnie, na plejke listowa dodam openingowego dont know why, ale rownie dobrze moglby to byc kazdy kawalek tak ciezko o wyrazne roznice pomiedzy piosenkami, z pewnoscia to nie moj gatunek, ale gdy po przesluchaniu albumu dostalem polecane utwory na podstawie tej plyty, to o wiele lepiej sie sluchalo bez rozumienia liryki francuzkich kawalkow, tak samo mam z hinskimi trakami z tego co zauwazylem, ale przynajmniej juz wiem z czym sie je pania Norah Jones

Nothing explicitly bad, but nothing. Nothing. It's probably the most boring album I've heard in my life. Always the same volume, the same tones, the same tempo and somewhat empty & generic lyrics. I can't believe this was a hit and a milestone of the 2000s.

I had a full review drawn up already where I rhetorically asked how this deathly boring muzak garbage somehow made its way out of the hotel lobby circuit and into the public's living rooms, but Wikipedia answered the question: she's Ravi Shankar's daughter, just doesn't use his name. Turns out she even has a few artist siblings who used his surname and didn't make it. Very clever - until 10min ago I'd always thought her success was inexplicably organic. Oh, and the album is 90% covers. 1/5.
