From the everything-old-is-new-again file comes Mary Cutrufello. A singer-songwriter-guitarslinger, Cutrufello recalls on her debut the blue-collar grit of Bruce Springsteen, the whiskey soul of Rod Stewart, the tough-girl rock of Melissa Etheridge, and, yes, even the arena-rock fist pump of Bon Jovi. Sure, the Yale-educated, Texas-based newcomer's throaty vocal gymnastics and very macho presence sometimes feels overblown. And some songs weigh heavy with rock clichés (hence the Bon Jovi and Etheridge references). But Cutrufello's downside is countered by an upside of unmitigated rock & roll bliss--tracks such as the rollicking, anthemic "Sunny Day" and the groovy, Black Crowes-like "Sweet Promise." Here is the perfect soundtrack for a Saturday with your head under the hood of a '72 Mustang. --Neal Weiss

Forceful Country-Blues-Rock full of fun
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Mary Cutrufello is hard to describe but should be a household name in the near future. Her writing and playing is exceptional for its straight ahead force and melody. Lyrics are intelligent and fit the music seamlessly. If I find a fault it is a slight overproduction of the studio album. Mary would be better heard live or recorded straight from a live show (as in her great private issue album 'Who to Love and When to Leave'. Still, 'When the Night is Through' is a must hear!"

"Before buying this CD, my wife & saw her do a live show. She is the real deal, this debut release captures her passion and fire quite well. Waiting for her sophomore effort anxiously! Gimme Mary over these bubblegum popsters anytime!"
