Synopsis

Amazon.com
Dar Williams's success as young '90s folkie isn't hard to discern. She has a consistent lyrical intelligence, an evocative, if sometimes cloying soprano, and a steady, graceful finger-style guitar skill. But, what's more, she has tapped into a yearning for immediacy and sincerity among her college-age (and mostly female) audience. Williams's first record is her sparest, simplest and best. The subject matter ranges from geopolitical fears, family turmoil, and gender angst, and her finest song remains "When I Was a Boy," a story of what it means to become a man or a woman: it should strike any listener with a shock of recognition. --Roy Francis Kasten

Dar Rocks!
M. Brown | Monterey, CA USA | 01/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

""The Honesty Room" was Dar Williams' first commercial CD. She is a hippie folk singer for Generation X. The best song on the CD is "When I Was a Boy" about being a tom boy. "The Babysitter's Here" is about being a child and having a great babysitter who has a lousy boyfriend. "Alleluia" has a great melody. Overall, an impressive first CD."
