Norah Jones - Norah Jones 'Little Broken Hearts' Unlikely To Bring Adele-style Success

Transforming heart-ache into chart success: it worked for Adele, but will it work for Norah Jones ? Adele's break-up album 21 has become a global phenomenon but it looks as though Norah has her work cut out if she wants to persuade the world that she's as worthy of attention (and the cash that follows attention) as the multi-Grammy award winning Adele.
That said, Norah's heartbreak disc, 'Little Broken Hearts' has fared well with critics; the general consensus appears to be that, whilst she's not breaking boundaries, turning heads or likely to smash any records, she has still churned out some of the best music of her career so far. A reluctant nod of approval from the critics. New York Daily News are impressed with Miss Jones, with a 4/5 review, saying that her newfound "snarky" attitude serves her well. Whilst she was never going to become a wild punk rocker, the Norah that we see before us in 2012 is "an undeniably darker Norah than we've heard before."
Norah had her pal Danger Mouse on board for this album and Washington Post reckons he's an "excellent collaborator," providing enough musical intrigue to stop the mind from wandering. The UK paper Metro have said that the album is "a collection of sleek, measured break-up songs with all the jagged edges smoothed out. It's immaculate stuff but it feels like (Jones and Danger Mouse) have taken the easy route."
