Synopsis

Amazon.com
Shawn Mullins is a '90s acoustic troubadour whose lyrics, at their worst, read like overly precious journal entries ("The road is my home / And my spirit is wild"), making him seem sometimes like Jewel with a Y-chromosome. (According to his song "Twin Rock, Oregon," Mullins has lived out of his van, too.) But some of the baker's dozen of songs that compose Soul's Core have some bite, especially the restless "Ballad of Billy Jo McKay" and the gritty "Gulf of Mexico." Mullins is at his best when he plays to his strengths, which include an affinity for working-class characters and an eye for detail. Best of all is his sweet Georgia drawl, which pours honey over the aching "Soul Child" and the memorable chorus of his breakthrough hit, "Lullabye." Mullins produced the album, his major-label debut, and even though it's his eighth title (he sold its predecessors out of that storied van), he is an artist whose skills are still on the rise. --Daniel Durchholz

I find that I like listening to this cd while I'm working on the computer - it makes for nice background music. Shawn's voice is easy on the ears. He's best know for Lullaby (song 2). He has a story telling way with his music. There's not any one song that really jumps out at me, but all in all this is nice-to-listen-to cd.

"I kited this CD from my oldest brother while I was still in high school, traveled with it cross-country after graduation, dreamt about it while it was in storage during Basic Training, and savoured it once I got my paws on it again during AIT. After that, it found a permanent home in my car CD case, while another copy lives right next to my stereo in the house. It's a CD that has survived the test of time. From a brilliant cover of Kris Kristofferson's "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down", to everyone's standards of "Lullabye" and "Shimmer" (brilliant in it's own way), to my personal favourite, "Tannin Bed Song", this CD speaks of a life well lived thus far, and while slightly road weary, still has many miles, a few fixed tires and oil changes left."
