Forget the thorns, because she has them, and without delay pick this (Calypso) Rose who, at 75 years old, looks fresher than ever. Far From Home has to be the 20th album at least of her crowded discography and the latest chapter of an eventful career started in 1964. But you'll never hear her sound in the least bit tired; quite the opposite. Petulant, energetic, vehement, jovial, gregarious... there aren't enough words to describe her performance on these 12 tracks on which she generously dispenses her joie de vivre with the voice of a young girl.
