The one CD that I take on....
Jennifer A. Pinard | Wolfeboro, NH | 11/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Cheryl Wheeler's Driving Home is the one CD that I take on every road trip. It is perhaps my favorite albumn ever. Wheeler is the epitome of a singer/songwriter. I love her voice and the folk-style music is great, but her meaningful lyrics are what truly set her apart. Listening to "When Fall Comes to New England" is like reading a book of poetry. I smile through upbeat "Spring" (I especially love the bridge), weep through the haunting ballad "Almost", and laugh during the satirical (but serious social statement) "Don't Forgent the Guns". This is, in my opinion, her most diverse and best overall album. I love everything she's done, but if you could only buy one of her albums or want to select a good gift...then this is my vote."
Another masterpiece

"Following up the brilliant Circles and arrows (the album that first brought Cheryl to my attention) might have seemed a hard task but Cheryl maintained the standard set by that wonderful album. Musically, her style could be described as folk or country but it's actually a mix of the two.Cheryl's sense of humor is evident in Don't forget the guns, a sarcastic song in which Cheryl ridicules the American obsession with guns.The title track opens the album in cheerful style, with Cheryl singing about an enjoyable drive through Pennsylvania countryside, listening to the music of Richard Thompson. A different drive home, this time by night, was the inspiration for Orbiting Jupiter. Cheryl sings about the pleasures of listening to music as a teenager in Music in my room. Two other cheerful songs (Spring, When fall comes to New England) extol the joys of those seasons. Cheryl describes the start of a new relationship in Silver lining.On the reflective side, Cheryl sings of relationships going wrong (Act of nature, Bad connection) and the march of time (75 Septembers - a song in which she asks about how things used to be). There is also a song (Frequently wrong but never in doubt) about somebody who always thinks he's right but rarely is.This is one of Cheryl's best albums. If you enjoy singer-songwriters with a sense of humor, you will surely enjoy Cheryl's music."
Beautifully composed and writen

"These songs keep me going through the day with a melody for every mood. The song "music in my room" is beautifully written and makes severel what I found to be clever references to old favorites in folk and rock. "Orbiting Jupiter" has a haunting melody and a strong under tone that really grabs your ear. Once again she brings her own opinions into the scene with the ride along melody "don't forget the guns". It is a humerous and entertaining editorial on the gun laws of the US. Some of the slower songs that I found to be captivating were "silver lining" and "frequently wrong". The first song has a good message and a beautiful melody, and the other has a sence of reflection or remorse as it tells the story of a man who never quite got it right. I also like the chorus with "never in doubt" because so often we doubt ourselves, and this song makes me think of confidence. I recomend this CD, Cheryl is a wonderful writer and I believe that her words should be spread farther than they are."
