Yes we like her very much here too. Particularly like the "Bear Creek" album. Agree she puts on a great show!

I'm a huge Brandi Carlile fan and have seen her in concert several times. I also have all of her albums on both CD and vinyl.
With that said, I really didn't like her new album "The Firewatcher's Daughter". I've listen twice to it now and will have to go back and give it another try.
It is indeed a little different from her past efforts, but I just can't seem to warm up to it.
It took a little time for me too. Fortunately I had just enough time before we went to see her. I didn't connect to the in your face aspect of some of the songs at first. It's definitely different, but started to make sense with repeat listening. Then seeing them live brought it home for me. I can relate, even to the "yelling" comment. But her "pop" songs have a lot to say, and they get under your skin.
The story was always my hands down favorite. I don't mean to sound like I am defending the album or myself. I love this release. Give it a chance, maybe it will grow on you the way it did me.
My personal feeling regarding Brandi's voice is that she is still trying her best to figure out a way of controlling it!.( SO MUCH TALENT) On some songs I can almost hear here going to a yogul, then immediately snap out of it. She is really kind of all over the place with her vocals. She has immense talent and I could surely see why the OP would want to take the young daughter for this artist. I really feel that once she becomes "in control" of the instrument God gave her, the best may still be yet to come. Just hope she shies away from ATO in the future.
