... she said something like Pearl being like Oyster (same producer, same sound) ut even better because containing better songs.

The explanation is simple : she wrote most of the songs at the beginning of a great relationship, when she was happy as can be, she started arranging the songs with her boyfriend (in the best circumstances possible), she recorded the album with her boyfriend and other people she likes very much. She spent an amazing time, and thus is very enthusiastic.

Personally, I have mixed feelings : I can enjoy listening to the album for its global sound, for its electric guitar, and for being able to listen almost as a whole (I only skip Experts), I like some songs a lot, Rewild Me, Some Things, and I like some others (Over The Fields, All The Rivers), but if I try to make my Heather top 20 songs, there will probably be no Pearl. Unless we classify liver versions, and the tour is so great that we adore live versions, of course.


That is why I still put Pearl higher than my less liked albums (the general sound is fine), but neither in my favorite ones (there are no amazing songs). IMO, of course.

In 2011 and 2015, Heather collected money on Pledgemusic, helping her to record her two albums 300 Days At Sea and The Way It Feels.

I'm glad she hasn't chosen to stay at Pledgemusic for her recent album, because in the last months Pledgemusic went offline, went into bankruptcy proceedings, and owed artists hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments, preventing them from fulfilling pledges to fans, according to newspaper reports:

The more I listen to it, the more I like it. My top 4:

Excellent:
See Yourself
Vincent
Some Things Just Come Undone

Very Good:
Rewild Me

I'm very pleased with the album! Those four songs are pure beauty.
Especially See Yourself is most impressive and amazing.

Cause when you're broken, then you're open,
And when you're open, then you're living,
And when you're living, you are light,
And it's alright, and it's alright,
And it's alright.

I like See Yourself as well, at least for its music ; lyrically, I admit I'm not font of the "when you're broken it's alright" thing.

I quite or really like every song you mention, but I think I could easily find 20 HN songs from previous albums that I prefer. Well, I speak for now. I didn't spoil myself by listening to the recording, but I might change my mind after hearing Berit playing Rewild Me.

Thank you Bernd!

HR1 is a free Radio program that you can listen in the entire world I think as MP3 stream.

This page is in german but might help you to test out the streaming through Internet. Well try it out if you want to listen live. https://www.hr1.de/service/livestream,livestream-114.html

It makes totally sense if she comes the long way from Bermuda to do lots of promotional sessions and not a single one like just HR1. I think we need to find out where else and how we can listen to it. Thanks again Bernd for this hint.

She just played "The Wounds We Bled", accompanied by Midori Jaeger on cello. Very beautiful. Too bad they misspelt her name in an insert, though ("Noca").

There was a 5 minutes interview about 70 minutes before playing live at Moma (German 3.5 hours Morning Magazin on TV), so maybe 6:35 local time I think.

HR1:

All The Rivers
Your Words
Truth And Bone
The Wounds We Bled
Storm
Don't Stop Believing
Walk This World
Island

plus interview, songs from her on CD, songs she requsted from other artists.
I think she was over 2.5 hours in the studio, the audience were four (!) people who won the tickets.

Interesting and new to me, that she saw Tori live back in her very early days.
And it was nice and new as well to me to hear All the rivers in this stripped down version, though the song shines better in the album version, imho. Not fond of this cover song, but i guess Heather made the best out of it.
