Excellent 2nd Album
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Musician (03/01/1994)...On their excellent 2nd album, THE CRYING TREE, Ryan and his fellow Oranges...incorporate country textures with a true grit that should refute any charges of dilletantism....THE CRYING TREE pours fresh water on old roots....Rolling Stone Magazine (06/30/1994)...While the mood of CRYING TREE is dark and brooding, the Blood Oranges' music is a happy marriage of the reedy whine of Ryan's mandolin and Spencer's taut, ringing guitar lines; the result is a sound with snatches of reels, waltzes and rock...."
Mixed but contains some real gems

"Cheri Knight makes this band what it is, and makes this particular album a standout. Two songs she sings - "The Crying Tree" and "Shine" - are so beautiful and so poignant they will give you goosebumps. Her voice is a soulful mixture of subtle country and emotional inflections. I would recommend buying this album for "Shine" alone.

The rest of it is OK, good tuneful country rock with an interesting mix of styles and instruments. I only give it 4 stars, but if Knight sang and wrote every song, I'd give it 6."
