    Her songs were everywhere (no pun intended) in the early 00's. She's always been one of my favourite female singers and I'm hoping there are a few fans on here. I know we have a thread already for her new album but I think she deserves a thread for the rest of her discography.

    The Day Star Approaches, You Know What It Brings

    "Tuesday Morning" and "Empty Handed" are two of the most underrated songs ever.

    I am also of the opinion that "It's You" is breathtakingly beautiful.

    Thoughts on the new album? Gave a shot a couple days, not much that stuck with me. Kinda sounds like Lana Del Rey but not as good.

    Honestly though, I'm just excited that a new album ought to mean a new tour and I can finally see her live!

    Every time I think about the way labels torpedoed her career, it makes me furious.

    Breathe is legit one of my favorite songs. Hotel Paper is a solid album

    Her last album didn’t have any staying power unfortunately. I was really hoping for a modern pop rock album going back to her roots.

    Yeah it’s a shame the label did one on her as she could have been way bigger. Her first two albums are still really solid.
     
  9. I recommend her unreleased albums then if you haven't heard them yet. I think it's all on youtube, but Everything Comes And Goes, with the missing songs, is a both a direct successor to Hotel Paper and The Wreckers.

    The second scrapped album, West Coast Time, suffered from label interferences and it shows in the songs.

    It's a shame the first one, at least, wasn't released in its original form because I feel like there's a piece missing in her musical journey, making the transition to Hopeless Romantic (which is still growing on me by the way) a bit jarring.

    I agree, Everything Comes And Goes was a solid EP which blended the early pop rock sound she had going on with The Wreckers country vibe. I've heard bits of West Coast Time over the years but I'm not 100% sure if I've heard everything. I'll have to give everything another listen.

    I wonder if she has a new album planned at all?

    I wish there was a complete version of Everything Comes and Goes. I want that in my life.
