Forget the thorns, because she has some, and pick this (Calypso) Rose who, at 75 years old, seems resistant than ever. Far From Home must be the 20th album of her large discography and the last chapter of a tumultuous career that strated in 1964. And there is one thing that we can not detect when we listen to her, it is fatigue. On the contrary. Lively, tonic, vehement, cheerful, strapper... we don't know how to qualify her performance during the 12 titles that she sings with a young girl voice.
