Twenty-five-year-old Julie Reeves is the personification of modern Nashville. Born in eastern Kentucky, a stone's throw from the hill country where poverty and isolation formed the bedrock of old-style hillbilly music, she's able to imbue the Dolly Parton-like "If Heartaches Had Wings"--about a young mother trapped in a marriage with a worthless sot--with honest Appalachian pathos. But she also grew up as a middle-class child raised on mainstream pop. As such, this big-voiced newcomer knows how to rock (check out the irresistible first track, "Trouble Is a Woman"), and demonstrates on the midtempo teaser "Do You Think About Me," in which she makes an old lover crazy with regret, that she's got the emotional depth to sell almost anything. It's About Time is mostly a radio album--packed with hooks and potential hits--but Reeves comes across as a real talent, an adaptable and believable singer who can survive whatever trend Nashville decides to sell this week. --Alanna Nash

"I was on a long trip and was listening to Trisha Yearwood's new CD and decided to change to Julie Reeves' CD - It's About Time. I only bought the CD for one song -- "What I Need", but I quickly fell in love with the entire CD. Needless to say, this CD is 10x better than Trisha's (and she is my favorite country artist) and Julie is the best kept secret in country music today. Buy the CD and listen to it -- it is rare to find a CD in which ALL the songs are potential Top 30 hits - especially "If Heartaches Had Wings." I'm sure some of the "major" female artists would have loved to record this song on their latest CD's. A truly GREAT CD that you will play over and over again..."

"This is an incredible debut album from Julie Reeves. She never really took off, but this is just a kind reminder of what Nashville missed out on. What an incredible voice! The songs on here are engaging and memorable. The singles were the uptempos "Trouble Is A Woman" and the title track, and the heartfelt ballad "What I Need". None of them really caught on with radio, which is a shame but their loss! There's some great uptempos on here like "Do You Think About Me", "Whatever" and "All Or Nothing" and great ballads like "If Heartaches Had Wings" and "You Were A Mountain". Check this one out!"

"When I heard this CD, I was literally blown away by Julie Reeves talent! Her voice is distinct and different from anything on country radio. This album received wide critical acclaim, but it never found it's voice for radio, which is strange. There's a nice mixture of uptempo honky tonks and heartfelt ballads. The album starts off strong with three uptempo songs, Trouble Is A Woman, Do You Think About Me and Party Down. They are all nice songs, Do You Think About Me reminds of Pam Tillis' song Deep Down for some reason. I think it's the arrangement. What I Need is a really nice ballad about asking someone to be sure about their intentions. The title track is a fun, catchy song that was the album's first single. Whatever is a nice kiss off song that would have been a great choice for single. She shows her softer side on songs like You Were A Mountain, If I'd Never Loved You, If Heartaches Had Wings, etc. She kicks it up on songs like All Or Nothing, What You Get is What You See, etc. This is a top notch effort and I hope one day Julie Reeves decides to record another album!"
