Editorial Review:

Product Description:
On her fifth album, Werner vividly demonstrates both the quality of musicianship and stylistic breadth that has marked her career as a singer-songwriter with roots in jazz, classical, country, and popular song. Produced by Bruce Cockburn’s longtime collaborator Colin Linden, New Non-Fiction plays like a collection of short stories written by a diverse group of authors with different voices, perspectives, and experiences. Yet the stories have a unifying thread woven by Werner’s powerful, classically trained voice, her keen eye for observation, and her sophisticated musicianship.
On her fifth album, Werner spills out trademark jazzy vocal stylings, pleasant acoustic ballads, a few Bangles-esque rockers, and plenty of word-riffing. This time around, however, she runs a bit short on memorable material. "Barbed Wire Boys" may be her best song about her native Midwest, and the conversation with dueling angels in "Misery & Happiness" has a clever charm. More typical though is the personal-ad whining of "All of the Above" or the pining for a big car in, yes, "Big Car." In these songs, the pronoun "you" runs amok, "only love can live forever after," and spiritual hope seems as thin and predictable as chicken soup for the soul. Werner may think dark days are redeemed by cloying images like stars, smiles, and a baby's hands, but wordiness without fresh ideas or real emotions isn't. --Roy Kasten
