Suprisingly good...Another great artist ignored
(4 out of 5 stars)
"In the editorial review, it notes that this material was initially released in the UK. Frequently it seems, I turn to Europe to find out what's really going on in Americana/alt-country. Ironic... I purchased it this year due to word of mouth, four years after it's initial release. This is deserving of a much wider audience. Northeast Kingdom, the "newer" CD was released in 1998. It is also excellent and largely ignored. The audio clips of The Knitter, although excellent, are not necessarily representative. The first four songs have much more electric guitar and rock sound than the remaining seven (which are more acoustic based). Enjoy and tell your friends what they're missing."
A Great Cheri Knight CD co-starring Eric Ambel
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The other reviews of this CD do a good job of reviewing the songs, so I'll just mention a few things. Both of her CDs are great, but some of the best songs on The Knitter hit harder and louder than anything on The Northeast Kingdom. Much of that firepower is due to the guitar playing of Eric Ambel. I read a Steve Earle interview where he explained how he started working with Cheri Knight. One day while driving he stuck a compilation CD in his CD player and when he heard the Light In the Road song he just kept listening to it over and over again for the rest of the drive. He got The Knitter CD and loved it, and he wound up producing her second CD. He also added Eric Ambel to his own band. I'm hoping that Eric is continuing to write more songs for another CD release of his own. I'm also hoping that Cheri Knight is working on another CD. To sum up this review I'll just say that anytime you see either a Cheri Knight or Eric Ambel CD for sale you should buy it for yourself or to give it to someone else."

"Cheri Knight's "The Knitter" is one of those albums that really grows on you. Her subtle talents become more and more obvious after repeated listenings. She's got to be one of the best songwriters working today. Everything about this album is understated -- the writing, the singing, the playing -- but it all sinks in and works wonderfully as a whole. I've owned this album for over two years now, and it still sounds better every time I listen to it. Her newer album, "The Northeast Kingdom" is terrific, too, but I'd take this one if I had to choose."
