Synopsis

Amazon.com's Best of 1998
Former Blood Orange Cheri Knight has hit her highest marks with Northeast Kingdom. The mix of rootsy rock and folky textures gives Knight's tunes an upfront urgency and a surrounding sponginess that quickly draws listeners into these pithy dramas. Roomy production from the TwangTrust (Steve Earle and Ray Kennedy) allows Knight's heavyhearted lyrics to unfurl with a full range of colors, putting Northeast Kingdom leaps ahead of many 1998 releases. --Andrew Bartlett

Earthy And Organic Modern Rock
05/05/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Cheri Knight was a member of the obscure but influential alternative country-rock outfit, the Blood Oranges. Her Blood Oranges compositions were the hardest rocking and least overtly country songs on their albums, in my opinion. The Northeast Kingdom has her branching out into some Celtic folk sounds, too, with Dar Glasgow. Black-eyed Susie really rocks out in a grungy greasy Southern rock way. I was pleasantly surprised at the diversity. Cheri has some powerful pipes, but even on the quieter songs her low purr is resonant and distinctive. This is a rich and accomplished recording from a genuine talent with a distinctive and lovely voice. This can take repeated playing without losing its luster."

"I must be missing something -- why haven't we seen more Cheri Knight? The Northeast Kingdom has it all -- thoughtful lyrics with that interesting New England twist, humor and ... does it rock! Cheri, you make me believe in female rockers! There is not a bummer on this whole album. The only bummer is: why haven't we seen anything else since? Buy this album!"
