We gave it a C+

Carrie Newcomer’s seventh album, The Age of Possibility, is a hit-or-miss affair, veering lyrically between subtle insight and studied quaintness, and musically between undefined melodies and arresting backbeat. Revered on the coffeehouse circuit for her juxtaposition of inventive word clusters with mundane phrases, she mostly excels at establishing mood, letting her dusky alto ferret out the hidden story in every whispery song.
