CD Reviews

No Need to compare her to ANYBODY
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I had gotten Judith Edelman's first two albums based on nothing but a magazine review, and was very impressed: She seemed to be sort of a cross between Nanci Griffith and Cheryl Wheeler. Very Wheelerish were "Library Card," and "Blood Reunion." I couldn't wait to get a copy of "Perfect World." Well, I got it and was overjoyed to find that it was better than the first two.This collection is bouncier, grassier and doesn't go off on murky tangents like the first two did occasionally. This seems to suggest that Judith's writing has settled into a groove that she's comfortable with, without trying to be Lucinda Williams (who doesn't do a thing for me). I had to play the whole thing over and over, turning up the volume on the instrumental - shame it's so short - and louder on everything thereafter. Although I've only known of her existence for a couple months, it gives me hope that there are more incredibly talented folks out there waiting to be discovered by the vast minority who are fed up with the fluff out of Nashville. Forget the comparisons: with her delightful voice and delivery, and brilliant writing, SHE should be the standard. There's a slot in my cd player reserved for her next classic."
Greatest Little Known Artist
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Judith Edelman is phenonemal. Her lyrics along with her crystal clear vocals leave any music lover amazed. Who wouldn't want to sing like Judith? I've purchased both this album and her recent Only Sun release after hearing a demo in my college Student Activities office where I work. This CD was originally marked "uninterested because it's country." I wish I knew what lame listener wrote that uneducated comment. Edelman and her cohorts are more than country. Their music is bluegrass with an apparent Irish influence, and they are obvious lovers of perfect songwriting despite living in a less than Perfect World. Check out tracks 3,4,5 and ...well everyone of them!"
Great folk/bluegrass album
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like to listen to a woman with a crystal clear voice, backed by acoustic guitar, mandolin, penny whistle, dobro, banjo, fiddle, and the like, you'll love this album. My favorite tracks are "Pass It On," "Why'd You Wait So Long," "Musical Priest (instrumental)," and "Ride On A Train."Picture Nanci Griffith without the country "twang."This has become one of my favorite albums."
