A Stunning and Classic Recording
04/20/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Little Love Letters" is, quite simply, one of the finest country-music recordings of the 1990's. Carlene Carter's flirtation with greatness(and obscurity)during the 80's is generally well-known. The kid had, arguably, more talent and presence than all the other Carter family denizens put together, but not a clue as to what she should do with it. When her outright masterpiece "Musical Shapes" was ignored by the largely troglodyte tastes of country radio in 1980, she went into an artistic tailspin. "I Fell In Love" may have rightly made her a star in 1990, but this album established her as country's best-kept "secret legend." Not that the record wasn't a hit--"The positively infectious country-rock of "Every Little Thing" was probably her biggest smash ever, and deservedly so. This song epitomizes what's truly great about Carlene carter: no other country girl knows how to have so much sheer fun with a guitar and "here's-mud-in-your-eye" songwriting hooks. The best of her lifelong musical influences come together here, continuing the irresistible tempo of "Every Little Thing" with tracks like "I Love You Cause I Want To" and "Sweet Meant To Be." Her rendering of Benmont Tench's "Unbreakable Heart" was a minor hit for Carlene but it should have been a monster--she truly wrenches the ticker on this number. It was probably a mistake that the ballad "World of Miracles" was not released as a single with one of the clever videos usually reserved for her uptempo numbers--this song may have been her biggest hit and established her as a consistently bankable recording artist. This Cd can best be likened to a fine summer night after a hard day at work, feet up on the porch, beer in hand, and everything right with the world. An affecting, multi-faceted recording by one of the genre's authentic talents. It's too bad that the women who buy the majority of country music CDs can't relate very well to a sparkplug like Carlene Carter. She's A-One."
Masterful fusion of country, rock and pop
Maurice Blair | Houston, TX United States | 11/16/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Little Love Letters provides a masterful blend of the country and rock influences Carter is well-known for along with an amazing pop sensibility. In terms of melody, harmony, energy, and heartfelt lyrics, this album is a winner. Also, it is the type of album that can really grow on you over time, as you better understand and connect with the soulful expression that Carlene Carter, Howie Epstein, Benmont Tench, and others bring to this beautiful work. Of many outstanding tracks, especially noteworthy is "World of Miracles," which includes the extraordinary lines "Anything is possible in this world of miracles / We can move mountains in this world of miracles" (resembling Matthew 17:20). As a whole, Little Love Letters sees a full range of happiness and sorrow, but in the end, it sees Love, Faith, and Hope triumph."
