Overall Impression: I purchased Michelle Branch's 'The Spirit Room' based on one song, 'Everywhere'. This was never a huge hit in my country, Australia, but received enough airplay to mean the album hit store shelves. Having never heard much about this young songwriter I found Michelle Branch's efforts on 'The Spirit Room' truly awe inspiring. Songs that immediately stood out were 'All You Wanted' [which later went on to become a hit in itself] and 'I'd Rather Be in Love' [a catchy, pop/rock tune to be belted out]. After listening to the album a few more times, I realised what an amazing artist this woman is. With a unique style of her own and the ability to write many catchy pop songs with a distinctive rock edge [she was given sole writing credit numerous times], 'The Spirit Room' is a must-have. In comparison to other musicians, Michelle would be up there with Jewel and Alanis Morrisette. To be honest, Michelle has it all; songwriting skills that blow many away, a voice born to be heard, the ability to rock out on guitar and also a sweet, down to earth nature evident in any of her media interviews. If you're looking for a diverse album with beautiful songs, harmonies and instruments, then 'The Spirit Room' would make a dynamic addition to your CD collection. // 8
