Conclusion

Pro-social Content

The gentle "Turn Me On" and accordion-infused "Painter Song" find the singer anticipating a reunion with a special guy. Jones is electrified by her man’s embrace on "The Nearness of You" ("It’s not the pale moon that excites me/That thrills and delights me/It’s just the nearness of you"). On "One Flight Down," a faintly heard melody is enough to ignite memories, illustrating the power of music to connect with people at an emotional level. Despite battling melancholy on a number of songs, Jones doesn’t entertain self-destructive thoughts or try to kill the pain with chemicals. "Come Away With Me" dreams of escaping the daily grind and getting back to nature with a boyfriend, but . . .

Objectionable Content

Although it’s not explicitly sexual, one line finds the unmarried singer wanting to wake up in the arms of her love.

Summary Advisory

Lady sings the blues. Listening to this very mellow 23-year-old summons images of a smoky, sparsely populated cocktail lounge. A huge draw for teens? Probably not, but her age and honesty will appeal to a select group of adolescents (mainly girls) with an ear for softer sounds. Except for part of the title track, Come Away With Me is innocuous, sleepy poetry.
