CD Reviews

If you like music.

"I received this CD as a gift. I like all kinds of music but would not have bought anything by these artists normally, except for Chris Rea.

This CD is killer. Each listening brings out a different "cut" for repeated replaying. I don't like everything on the CD, but the good tracks out weigh the bad 10 to 1.

I have purchased CD's by some of these artists. That is the best recommendation I can give. My music horizons were broadened by this CD."

"The trouble for me with this CD is that there is not enough variety. There are only about three or four basic rhythms and almost every other song is a honky tonk blues number. Blues has a very limited range and these artists do not seem bent on stretching the boundaries. I found most of the songs predictably structured with familiar chord progressions. There is also the problem that many of the lyrics are in written from a contemplative point of view, which also gets monotonous. The only number that really grabbed me immediately was Nanci Griffith's "Lone Star State of Mind," although her accent is extremely peculiar. She sounds like more like an Iowa farm girl transplanted to the San Fernando Valley than a native Texan. But I cannot get her song out of my mind. This CD is not bad as background music for beer-drinking socializing or driving down a lonesome Texas highway, but for the most part I found it only mildly interesting. I've listened to it six or seven times now, but my initial impression remains the same. In general, I like this series, but the Tex-Mex volume remains far and away the best."
