Its easy to like someone Lissie, a 21st century flower child who surely wouldve been voted most unique by her high school classmates if she hadnt dropped out during senior year. Shes the sort of girl who listened to Patsy Cline records while everyone else was freaking out over Britney Spears, the girl who spent her summer vacations following Phish around while her classmates all went to the beach. As a performer, Lissie brings that same trail-blazing attitude to her music, which is colored by her Midwestern roots and quirky, full-throttled vocals. Few folk singers have a voice as strong as Lissie's, and her sepia-toned croon is easily the best part of this album. On the other hand, few producers know what to do with such a powerful instrument, and Catching a Tiger -- whose myriad producers include Jacquire King, Bill Reynolds, Julian Emery, and Ed Harcourt -- doesnt always highlight Lissies talent the way Why You Runnin' did. Older songs like Oh Mississippi and Everywhere I Go take a nicely sparse approach, dressing her vocals with reverb and tambourine snaps in a manner that recalls an alt-country Hope Sandoval. Other songs pile on the instruments to tuneful effect, with When Im Alone taking its cues from Stevie Nicks and Stranger looking to the glory days of Phil Spector for inspiration. Where Catching a Tiger falters is in its most polished moments, where the rough edges of Lissies voice are sanded down and robbed of their power. But those moments are the exception, not the rule, and this debut only strengthens Lissie's potential to become one of folk music's newest sirens. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi
