With Love CD

Rosie Thomas was the mellowest singer/songwriter on the once-grunge label Sub Pop, representing an openness of spirit that was as refreshing as it was shocking.  Having moved off on her own, Thomas continues to explore an emotionally rich landscape where sunbursts and heartbreak collide with gorgeous melodies that resonate long after the music plays.  "Where Was I" brings her breathy voice to the fore, where it nearly disappears into the air.  Pedro the Lion's David Bazan produces the album with a shiny, clean veneer that brings about a new accessibility, while Thomas adds a Jackson 5 vibe to the spirited "Over the Moon" and a sense of grand majesty to the piano-based drama of "Back to Being Friends."  Best is the acoustic piece "A Really Long Year," where Thomas touches on country rock with rich harmonies and a generous reflection on her unusual life.  "Sometimes Love" flows toward mid-'70s MOR, with a lite-FM feel that's perfect for her emotive reach. - iTunes
