CD Reviews

Wonderful! Moving! Sensitive!
Craig Milo Rogers | 08/22/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've followed Kristina Olsen for many years. This, her first Rounder release, contains many of my favorite songs. From the simplicity of "My Father's Piano", to the emotional complexity of "Practicing Walking Away", Kristina's splendid songwriting and vibrant voice just sorta grab you and say, "Listen up! This is important! This is life!""
One of the CD's Ever Made in the Last Ten Years!

"Kristina Olsen's first CD is one of my all-time favorites! She has a gift for writing and singing lyrics that touch your soul and reverberate for a long, long time afterwards. Two examples of this is "My Father's Piano" and the incredible "Cry You a Waterfall." Mixed with these wonderfully sensitive ballads are witty songs like "Wish You'd Stop Doing so Well" (great song to play VERY LOUD after a break-up) and "I'll Be Home Tonight." A special note all to itself would be her song "I Can Not Live With Out You" which is perhaps one of the best love songs ever written in the last ten years (and I do not exaggerate!) If you like singer/songwriters like David Wilcox and Nanci Griffith you'll be in particular heaven! Nina Gerber is perfect as usual!"
Musicianship, diversity, wonderful singing and great tunes!

"I had never heard of Kristina Olsen, and probably wouldn't have, if the music store I was browsing in one day hadn't been piping it over the p.a.. I stopped in my tracks to listen. All these years later, this remains one of my favorite CD's ... especially while riding in the car. The music takes me to good places in my mind every time. To this day, I still don't know much about Kristina Olsen, but I sure love this CD!"
