Some albums can be difficult to review, and others not so much. Carmel Mikol’s latest, In My Bones, falls into the latter category, at least in the ease of listening part. There was some difficulty, though. It was in trying to find the words to describe this recording and knowing that they will never do it justice. From the first lyrics of the opening title track, to the very last note, these first rate original songs showcase one of the most promising Cape Breton born singer songwriters, to hit any stage in years. “Sunny Days”, deservedly receiving lots of attention and airplay of late, is one that has you joining in and dreaming of warmer times to come. “Funny Little Habit” will surely be a favorite of many with its catchy delivery. It’s an ode to simpler, radio friendly compositions of the past. “Hometown” is a song that anyone who has ever lived far from their roots can surely relate to, with a truly touching and lovely melody, both in the chorus and the accompanying piano. “Blaming Myself” gets just a little bit edgier and brings a vocal quality reminiscent of Sarah McLachlan’s sound—not to compare, but rather to point out the caliber of talent heard throughout the CD and especially on this number. “Georgia” continues this trend with a vengeance in absolutely wicked style. “I’ll Never Find You” completes this outstanding collection in a very fine way. The true test of any great CD for me is when I can’t wait to listen again and again. There are no tracks to be missed on this release. I can simply say, if you enjoy exquisite vocals, flawless delivery, and a truly enjoyable listening experience, then In My Bones is a must have in your library. Perfection!
