Album Review: Juliette Lewis – Terra Incognita

January 28, 2010

Juliette Lewis - Terra IncognitaTitle: Terra Incognita
Artist: Juliette Lewis
Label: Roadrunner
Released: Out Now
In one word: Insane

Any album produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (The Mars Volta) isn’t going to play by the rules and Lewis as an actress and most especially a musician can definitely be considered as a wild card.

This is Lewis’ first solo album since the demise in 2009 of Juliette Lewis and the Licks. As expected the record is full of glitteringly weird and wonderful moments with songs like “Noche Sin Fin” belting out pure emotion and erratic weirdness. “Hard Lovin’ Woman” is a bit like Elvis’ “Stranger In My Own Home Town” or like a less annoying Janis Joplin with her crazy delivery and chock-full of passion.

“Romeo and Terra Incognita” shows Lewis’ softer side which at times can be just captivating; she has one helluva voice that just leads you through the record like some sort of sexy pied-piper

Lewis is one insanely talented woman that it seems can do anything. Every record she’s released has been strikingly different and the woman has a knack for choosing the right people to work with.
