I really like Norah Jones, despite all the whining that she's "boring", "music for soccer moms" or whatever.

She's wonderfully talented, beautiful, and seems like she doesn't take herself to seriously.

I understand the criticisms about her latest album that some people wish she would stretch a bit and do something a little more adventurous, since she likes to appear onstage with a punk(ish) band from time to time, but hey - she does what she does very well.

I have the new album but haven't listened to it yet. I really, really love her second album.

i've listened to the new album once now. i have to say, while i love norah jones too, it has been going downhill since her first album.

i think i have snorah jones' first album somewhere on my ipod,
she's definitely quite talented..but suffers from being dull at times, i mean it's the kind of music
that helps me fall asleep. i don't know much about her, but i've always liked her, she seems somewhat genuine.

Her first album robbed Springsteen of a Grammy.

never really understood why her albums keep being considered jazz albums.

two GREAT albums, so she's allowed an off one.

She is truly great.

This surprises you? The Grammy voters don't love the rock and roll.

Not like a Grammy actually means anything these days anyway.

And I doubt Springsteen cares all that much.

Plus, I liked that Norah Jones won a lot of Grammys that year and some new talent was rewarded.

She's a beautiful woman with a beautiful voice. What's NOT to like. Her songs are good.

She sure is, I think she's gorgeous I have her new CD, haven't listened to it yet to say what I think of it.

I saw her on tour years back, it must have been her first real tour after her first CD came out. It was awesome, her voice sounds even better live. I was very skeptical as to how it would sound.

I saw her on 60 Minutes last week and she said she wrote all of the songs on her new CD and there's even a mild sort of "protest" song about Bush on it. She seems so modest and normal, and I find that refreshing. Sure it's not the kind of music I'd want to listen to 24/7, but I like it all the same.

I agree, MrsSpringsteen. I saw her in concert in support of her second album and it was actually a pretty good show. I love how down to Earth she is, too. It's, like you said, refreshing.

I can't think of a single thing of hers that I've ever liked.
