"Like many of the reviews here, I first heard Rose by seeing her perform live in Chicago. I was very moved by her performance and picked up this recording after the show. Rarely does a recording capture a performer's artistry and charisma on disc. This is a wonderful exception to that unfortunate trend. Rose's lyrics are mysterious and often intriguingly ambiguous. This is not fluffy hold-my-hand-and-walk-in-a-field folk any more than it is Top 40 Jewel-esque pop . This is musical poetry at its most creative, with more of a nod towards the Doors than to Fairport Convention. She delivers her introspection in a breathy sultry voice that carries the fragilty of Nick Drake coupled with the pure emotional force of Eddie Vedder. All of the tracks are acoustic, a few have Rose's guitar coupled with a mournful fiddle. "Abalin" gives me chills upon every listen. I highly recommend this CD, particularly to fans of Nick Drake, mid-70s Neil Young, vintage Joni Mitchell, and even the Smashing Pumpkins. In a time when so much great music goes unheard, take a chance with this one. You won't be disappointed."

"You've not heard the likes of Rose Polenzani. Truly, I can't compare her to any folksinger I've ever heard before. Her lyrics are striking, her voice is haunting. It's as if she's feeling -- experiencing -- the lyrics rather than merely singing them. Her poem-like songs are far from "by the book." Rose Polenzani is not for everyone, but if you're looking for something that's truly different, you should pick up Anybody."
