There’s an obvious touch of irony to the title of Missy Higgins’ third studio album, her first release in five years. The Australian singer/songwriter has acknowledged her bouts of depression and disillusionment with show business, topics that inform some of her latest songs (most notably “Everybody Is Waiting”). Considering all that, The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle is remarkably uplifting in sound and feel. With Nashville popmeister Brad Jones and fellow singer/songwriter Butterfly Boucher handling production, Higgins delivers vibrant performances that show off her compelling alto vocals to full advantage. Her tunes are smart, heartfelt, and self-revelatory, often suggesting the classy chanteuse stylings of Dusty Springfield and Sandie Shaw. “Set Me on Fire,” “Hello Hello," and “Unashamed Desire” invoke widescreen ’60 pop, while “Temporary Love” has the propulsive flow of an ‘80s dance hit. Higgins also does well in acoustic settings, like the bluesy “Watering Hole” and the countrified “If I’m Honest.” Lyrical themes of romantic deceit (“Tricks”), obsessive longing (“All in My Head”), and mortality (“Cooling of the Embers”) give these songs unusual depth.
