During the early 2000s, there was a law requiring all coffee shops to play Come Away with Me at least four times a day. As a 23-year-old, I somehow didn't relate to a peer who was singing torch songs for the golf-and-macchiato set. So when I gave up slinging coffee, I also gave up listening to Norah Jones. Right up until June, that is, when I saw her stunning turn in Ted—she plays the titular alcoholic teddy bear's ex. Maybe she doesn't take herself so seriously after all. Her latest, Little Broken Hearts, had been getting rave reviews, so I gave it a listen and found that, no, she's still awfully serious. Except that on this, her fifth album, Jones has made something dark and tragic and distorted and, finally, age appropriate. Her second collaboration with Danger Mouse (after last year's Rome) is a noir meditation on heartbreak, as stylish as it is sincere.
