New Album Review: The Ol' Razzle Dazzle by Missy Higgins

No one does chill like Missy Higgins. Her music has become the staple soundtrack for TV shows like Grey's Anatomy, One Tree Hill, and other hit shows. Her style is the perfect blend of thoughtful but quirky at the same time. It's a formula that's earned her several top 10 singles and three number one albums in Australia. The singer-songwriter hasn't produced any music since 2006, so fans were waiting anxiously for a new album, and Higgins delivers beautifully in her latest album The Ol' Razzle Dazzle. I think the title doesn't do her music justice. I'm not sure why she borrowed it from one of the hit songs from the musical Chicago, but title aside, it's a winning album. She creates mix of song that are achingly wistful and deeply meaningful as well as her trademark upbeat acoustic tunes. Songs you don't want to miss are "Everyone's Waiting", "All In My Head", "If I'm Honest" and "Cooling of the Embers". Some of her more upbeat tunes include "Set Me on Fire", "Hello Hello" and "Temporary Love" and "Watering Hole".

Love her music? If you live near the Dallas-Ft. Worth area, you can attend her concert at the Granada Theater this September 12. In the meantime, catch her latest album here. I also included her entire collection for good measure:)
