Minnie Driver – Everything I’ve Got in My Pocket / 2010

This is a wonderful album! Why didn’t we hear about this CD when it came out? It’s chock-full of lovely songs, and Ms. Driver’s voice and singing style are just beautiful. This CD reminds me of Sarah McLachlan’s album, “Surfacing,” and is equally as good. The songs “Invisible Girl,” and “Down,” are particularly memorable, as is her cover of Bruce Springsteen’s, “Hungry Heart.”
I enjoy her acting, very much, but, I hope Ms. Driver will also continue to pursue the musical side of her career, as well. EVERYONE should hear this!

Yes, Minnie Driver can act, write songs and sing. Get over it. She sounds like an earthier Norah Jones or a wispier, less bent Neko Case. The title track is genuinely effervescent and lyrically intriguing; “Fast As You Can” is a smoky alt country anthem, and her take on Springsteen’s “Hungry Heart” is worthwhile.
