I absolutely love this CD... I can't say enough good things about it so I'll just say I HIGHLY recommend it. Also, the song "Be Somebody" was on an episode of Charmed in May of 2000. It's amazing that it took 6 years for it to show up on a Paula Cole album. Does anyone know if it was on a previous CD that I just can't locate?

Cole Matures and Shines

On her follow up to "This Fire" Paula Cole keeps her magic and passion and changes her sound a little. There are quite a few highlights on this album. The opener, "I Believe In Love" is a wonderfully uplifting song with a great energetic sound. "Amen" is a politically charged song about subjects as varied as Ronald Reagan and Marilyn Manson, but does list things off in a very "Thank You/Alanis Morrisette" sort of way. The tow songs I would like to stress here are "Pearl" and "Be Somebody". "Pearl" is a truly beautiful song about coming in to your own and facing challenge and coming out the other side a better person. "Be Somebody" is a sad song about broken spirits and fighting to make a difference. Paula's voice is still amazing and stands out from many of her contemporaries. This album was very underrated.

Liked it Just as much as 'This Fire'

Wish it had more then 9 songs. I could have sat through another 9!! She is sooo amazing, both vocally & lyrically. Although this is a little more religious of an album, it's still beautiful songs and great lyrics. Paula has that voice then you when you hear her, you stop and listen it's an automatic reaction.
