Reviews and discussions of singer/songwriter Katie Melua (visit her site) on Blogcritics:

Call Off the Enthusiasm
The floor is sticky in spots. The seats you wanted are taken, but the second best are available, so you take them and sit down. The smell of other people’s popcorn is strong and unpleasant. The auditorium is still lit…

Katie Melua’s Call off the Search: No guts, no glory
Katie Melua’s Call of the Search looks like an airplane, but it never takes off.

Katie Melua – Call Off The Search
The biography that accompanied my review copy of Katie Melua’s debut album Call Off The Search began by describing her tremendous popularity in the UK: over one million albums sold, six weeks at number one. There happens to be an…

Katie Melua – Call off the Search
Knowing her music is going to be a measure of cultural literacy.

Katie Melua Call Off The Search
Katie Melua’s Call Off The Search is a pleasant album of pop music, which can be taken as a compliment or a criticism depending on your feelings for the genre. It is nice enough to have playing in the background…

Katie Melua’s Missing One Thing
I cannot fault this album for anything. Except for the fact that it doesn’t exactly warrant more than two listens.

Katie Melua: Call Off the Search
Call Off the Search is a pleasant combination of bluesy jazz instrumentation and Melua’s gorgeous husky voice, but it doesn’t offer anything that hasn’t already been heard before.

Call Off the Search
Katie Melua is 19. She has a record contract and a studio willing to pull out all the stops to promote her. We hateses her. Of course, that has nothing to do with the album. That’s just the green-eyed monster…

Call Off the Search by Kate Melua
This new young voice has potential but the album gets bogged down in spots and veers perilously close to elevator music at times.

Katie Melua – Call Off The Search
While it’s all too easy to dismiss 19-year-old Katie Melua as merely riding the coat-tails of the Norah Jones phenomenon, such a comparison unfairly ignores the fact that her debut album, “Call Off The Search,” is not only a fine…

Katie Melua’s Call Off The Search
I’ve finally gotten ready to do up my review of Call Off The Search. I got this CD about a week ago, and I’ve listened to it a few times, always meaning to write this review but never quite getting…

Sorta like Norah, but better…
Call Off the Search, by Katie Melua [4 out of 5 stars] First impression, when I heard Katie Melua was: “Oh, My God! Norah Jones all over again!” I admit I am not the biggest Norah Jones fan there is,…

Katie Melua – Call off the Search
The Irish put out the best music. U2, Enya, The Pretenders – the list goes on and on. Luckily for all of us, Katie Melua moved from Georgia (former USSR, not Southern Belle) to Belfast as a teen and received…

Katie Melua – Call Off The Search
If you are searching for a talented, but rather soulless, clone of Norah Jones with influences from Ella Fitzgerald to Diana Krall, call off the search. If you want some sort of *feeling* with your jazz-pop keep on going. I…

Katie Melua, “Call Off the Search”
Katie Melua’s debut rides the Norah Jones pop-jazz highway straight down the middle of the road, but it’s a road with awfully nice landscaping. The 12-song release is filled with warm-hearted and accomplished singing, tasteful arrangements, and enough variety to…

Katie Melua – Call Off the Search
Rather than call off the search, Katie Melua should pick up the pace.

Penguins Or Cats?
A review by Andrew Quinn. “And I’m divided Between penguins and cats, But it’s not about what animal you’ve got, It’s about being able to fly, It’s about dying nine times.” So begins one of the best songs on an…

Katie Melua calls off the search
Overall, the album is bluesy and warm. Her sultry voice reminiscent of Bernadette Peters or Ertha Kitt coos in the show tune like “My Aphrodisiac is You”. Her voice is soft, warm, and somewhat mournful in “The Closest Thing To Crazy”, and is youthful and full of life.

I’m sorry, you’ve missed the point.

The Duke On “Call Off The Search” By Katie Melua
It’s the greatest soundtrack Disney never made! Except for the part about “great”.

Katie Melua – Call Off the Search for blandest album of the year
Katie Melua’s record, on the other hand, lacks any even vague hint of personality or emotion. Crikey, this girl makes Norah Jones sound like Nina Simone.

Attack of the Clones?
Are Katie Melua and Nellie McKay just warriors in Norah Jones’ Clone Army?
