CD REVIEW: Brooke Waggoner "Go Easy Little Doves"

Brooke Waggoner, with her latest release, is at her creative best. Her previous releases have showcased her ability to write great pop songs, and on this album, she is showing off her ability to be artistic, yet still not alienate her fans. Her sound, and her progression from release to release, actually is very reminiscent of Fiona Apple, and if Brooke plays her cards right that level of success is sure to follow. The album's title track as well as "Femmes" and "Find Her Floods" are wonderfully beautiful compositions. On this piano driven album, Brooke Waggoner has shown that you can still make beautiful music without having to emphasize making hit songs. Artistry is sometimes all you need.
