Lori Lieberman

Gone Is The Girl
format: CD
label: Pope Music
release year: 1997
performance: 5
sound 9.5
reviewed by: Jason Karsh

Often I've wondered, mostly when I happen into one of those 'nature' stores in the mall, "Where the hell do they get this music?" You've heard what I speak of; that earthy, whiny strain, backed by lonely guitar and a drummer under the obvious influence of a mild sedative. Well, the good news is that the search I never started is over.

On 'Gone' Lori Lieberman comes off as a woman wandering the purgatory between Patti Smith and Amy Grant--somehow lost, but still effortlessly and carelessly hopeful about one day being found. Yet, while the songs included here don't deserve much individual mention, the recording, mixing, and mastering jobs do.

Gene Pope III has done (as he has with many classical records on this label) an outstanding job of making this recording come alive. Every aspect of the production deserves praise as this is one CD that sounds great even while the songs do not. Normally, it is a subpar recording or mastering job that serves to needlessly bring down an artist, but not in this case. Our recommendation, give the rest of Pope Music catalog a shot.
