"I never new of Gillian Welch until I went to a concert in Berkeley,CA recently. She blew me away!!! This amazing vocalist and musician was by far one of the best I have ever heard. She brings so many emotions with her music.The instruments are soulfinding. Her voice is unbelievable. A must have for anyone who appreciates heartfelt, beautiful music."

"I love all of my Gillian Welch CDs. However, I just recently looked at the Wikipedia page for her. And I must say I was appalled by the negative comments she has received in the press. Mercifully the excerpts on Wikipedia were brief, but as a thinking person who appreciates the positively brilliant music of "Gillian Welch" (with Dave Rawlings, playing and singing along) I felt compelled to defend her music. Music that asks intelligent questions about existence. Songs which sound hauntingly beautiful as well. Except for the songs that totally rock out.

Quickly, it has been said that she should write about what she has experienced in her own life. What, breakfast? Gimme a break! Much of her music is entirely confessional. I don't imagine every situation that she writes happened to her. She's an artist. She imagines. She borrows. She honors experiences that have happened to others. (In "Miner's Refrain" she sings that she is down in a hole: who hasn't felt that way? And if you have never felt that way, this is not the band for you.) The feelings expressed in the lyrics are ENTIRELY personal. It's one of the elements that drew me to the musical experience that is "Gillian Welch."

In singing so directly, so openly, so raw, she and Dave Rawlings transcend the personal and tap into the entire human experience.

Oh and their guitar playing is great too."
Modern "Old-Time" and "New Grass" Meets the Blues

"I heard of Gillian Welch through the "O Brother" movie and soundtrack (one of the "sirens"), and began to listen to cuts off some of her CDs. At first, I didn't listen to this one because her other CDs had higher ratings overall in the reviews. But, when I decided to listen, I was immediately hooked. I bought the CD and haven't been disappointed in the least. As a matter of fact, this one grows on me the more I hear it. Gillian has a "lazy" style on this that is perfect for those moody-weather days (or any others for that fact). She combines "old-time", "new grass" and "blues-flavor" in a modern, acoustic (except for one song) fashion that is addictive. I hope she does more work like this CD!"
