CD Reviews

ONE OF THE MOST MOVING ALBUMS BY ONE OF THE SWEETEST
CRAIG@NORLARCO.ORG | FORT COLLINS, COLORADO | 06/19/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"ALONG WITH ANNIE HASLAM, ONE OF THE FINEST VOICES EVER HEARD. THIS IS A BENCHMARK WORK BY A TRUE ARTIST, ONE OF THOSE "IF YOU HAD ONE ALBUM TO TAKE TO AN ISLAND". WB & EASY WERE RELEASED 20 YEARS AGO AND STILL HAVE NOT BEEN SURPASSED BY ANYONE. SALLY WROTE, SUNG AND PLAYED NEARLY EVERY INSTRUMENT WHEN PUTTING WATER BEARER TOGETHER - I KNOW OF NO ONE CAPABLE OF THIS FEAT. IT IS REALLY A CONCEPT ALBUM WITH MANY OF THE SONGS LINKED BY SIMILAR THOUGHTS AND IDEAS. SORT OF LIKE A JUSTIN HAYWOOD /JOHN LODGE EFFORT DONE BY ONE PERSON WITH A BEAUTIFUL VOICE AND PERSPECTIVE ON LIFE. SALLY IS A TRUE MINSTREL AND ONE OF THE BEST STORYTELLERS WE HAVE. THANK GOODNESS WATER BEARER WAS FINALLY PUT ON CD!"
MUSIC FROM WONDERFULAND
NO GURU (ladida@cyberusa.net) | Chepachet, RI | 06/21/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A wondrous work of beauty which drags just a tad in the latter half. But a must have. I will teach my children to chant "three rings for the elfin king" in times of troublesome stress."
Haunting Melodies
Thoron Dor | Western Australia | 10/12/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These songs evoke a feeling of another age, of the elvish world and of Tolkien's Middle Earth, with some of the lyrics being borrowed from Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion. There are beautiful and haunting songs, a mix of English folk and newer technologies, resembling in part the works of Loreena McKennitt and Enya. Sally's vocals are moving, and the melodies are strong. I think this is her best work."
