Suzy's Best
gemini_j | Canada | 04/18/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"GIVE ME SOME WHEELS is Suzy's overall most consistent album to date, which was overlooked yet again by country radio. WHEELS features some of Suzy's best uptempo songs ever, as well as some compelling ballads which she is just so good at. Suzy's voice is so fresh and clear and beautiful, its a shame country wont listen to her unique storytelling and voice. "Fall" is a declaration of taking the plunge to fall in love. "Traveling Light" is one of the catchiest songs here, a song about leaving, with an upbeat message about leaving the past behind and finding happiness. "No Way Out" is a quirky little ditty with hints of R&B in it. The ballad "Saying Goodbye To A Friend" is so tragically beautiful, sung with so much emotion and pain, it just resonates with you. The title track is another winner, very catchy. Overall WHEELS is a must have cd, and a reminder of what country used to be like in 1996, dont miss out on this."
Good-time album ideal for the road
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 04/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Suzy's inspiration for this particular album was Green light, an album recorded by Bonnie Raitt in 1982. Although the style of the music is very different - this is contemporary country - the mood of the album is similar, as both albums feature upbeat, good time, driving music. As far as I can tell, all the songs are originals. Given the Bonnie Raitt inspiration, we might have expected to find a John Hiatt song (Suzy recorded a couple of his songs for her earlier album, Voices in the wind) but there are none here.

Suzy sets the mood with the title track, which opens the album, a great up-tempo song. Not all the songs are up-tempo - some ballads are included - but most of the songs have an upbeat feel to them. One exception is Live to love another day, about getting over a broken relationship. Some songs (Let's get real, No way out) have titles that suggest sadness but are actually very upbeat songs.

My favorite song here is She said he heard. This is about how people misunderstand each other, interpreting what is said in ways different from the speaker's intention. On one level, this is quite a sad song but it's so real that I find it, in a way, quite funny.

Such a bright, cheerful album suggests that Suzy was happy with life at this stage of her career, but the album was not a commercial success. Nevertheless, if you're a fan of Suzy's music, you'll enjoy this album."
'Wheels' Another Winner
Chris S. | atlanta, ga United States | 12/02/2001

"After the slightly detached affair that was her previous set SOMETHING UP ME SLEEVE ,Suzy Bogguss returned to form with this album, though it seemed as though no one took notice. It's a shame that it was so overlooked, because it contained some of her most endearing work, as well as some of her best, most expressive singing yet. Among the many highlights, the upbeat title track is another in a long line of uptempo winners that are Bogguss' trademark; other strong cuts include 'Feeling Bout You', 'No Way Out', 'Fall' and 'She Said, He Heard'. Unfortunately,this seemed to be the beginning of the end for Bogguss at country radio-- each of the singles released were completely, and unjustly, overlooked, propelling the project to nowhere fast."
