"This 2nd release of Jennifer's is a great collection of her music. She embodies a rare wisdom in both her words and music that is not commonly found in today's modern culture. The melodies are haunting and will touch your heart and soul. My favorite track is "Angel Boots". Her 3rd release from 1997 entitled "Refuge" is just as powerful and moving. She will soon be releasing her 4th album recorded in the 6000 year old Hypogeum in Malta, estimated release date is early fall 1999. Don't miss out on any of her recordings!"
Still fresh - and relevant

""Women's music" is probably an overused term these days, but Jennifer Berezan still fits that bill as well as anyone does. While less conciously feminist than some of her other albums, this rootsy collection is infused with the same distinct personal and political sensibility that marks all of her work. With its low-key folk-rock melodies offsetting the intense lyrics, this is probably Berezan's most accessible album, and definitely her best in my opinion.The songs vary widely in their tone and subject matter, but they all reflect Berezan's talent for economical and interesting lyrics. While the beautifully wistful title track and the more upbeat "Katie's River" reflect a sense of spirituality and a gentle concern for others, more topical numbers like "State of the Union," "When You're Young" and especially "One and One Makes Three," prove that Berezan is also capable of biting social commentary. (The latter, which touches on racism, corporate greed, AIDS, homophobia, talk radio and the "angry white male" phenomenon, is a remarkable summation of the ugly side of 1990s politics. I wish it were out of date, but it isn't!) Tucked among these, the short, melancholy "You're Gone" proves that Berezan is just as articulate in sadness as in anger. But perhaps the collection's finest moment is the closing song, "Angel Boots," a tribute to finding strength and comfort in oneself and a nice reminder that being on your own needn't mean being alone. All of which is a good summation of Berezan's work in general. Nearly a decade after its release, this is still probably the best distillation of that work."

"I am amazed that they do not have the REFUGE cd listed on this site probably her best work by far.Recorded in Pleasanton.CA. and mastered in SF.CA. in 1997.
I have it and people if your a fan and have not heard this one your not geeting JB anywhere near her best until you have it."
