stories from the city is probably my favorite album of hers, so it would be hard for something to compare to it. that had guitars front and center and she was singing loud at the top of the mix,
even off a woman a man, i really enjoyed 'black hearted love'
this album compares more closely to her most recent (solo) work, White Chalk. she sings in the same high register, guitars are more pushed into the background.
I think White Chalk is better, though.
