"English lacks the superlatives to describe this album. In today's pop culture, in which crass commercialism crushes originality, Fruit of Life stands out as a perfect jewel. The depth of their lyrics astounds. The range of their vocals intrigues. The purity of their harmony amazes. All in all, the best CD in years. No wonder the big labels ignore them!"
13 years and still one of my favorite albums

"It sickens me that people are selling used copies of this CD for less than a dollar. I feel compelled to buy all of them and hoard them in a bank vault on the off chance that this CD becomes unavailable at some point in the future. I bought this CD back in 1994 because one of my college professors (a recent transplant from L.A.) recommended it, and I have loved it ever since. If you listen to it and do not become obsessed with it, then there is something seriously wrong with you."
Fantastic voice and sound

"By accident, I discovered the Wild Colonials live at a hole in the wall in Boise, Idaho. The intensity of the music, the variety of sounds, the violin and the vocals were so compelling I bought both of their albums. The music is truly fantastic and every track on this CD is worth your time. The lyrics tend to be reflective, in some cases sad, but always comforting. This is not to say the music is slow - there are some very lively songs and some truly remarkable violin playing. "Alice" is the best "fast" song on the CD; it begins "The feeling was strong/when it came up tonight/you looked at your life/and nothing seemed right..." You'll feel the energy in the song.

Although the Wild Colonials are not really similar, I know many who like them who also like Sarah MacLachlan, Sinead O'Connor, Dave Matthews Band, Cowboy Junkies, etc. The Wild Colonials manage to be both soft and intense. I also recommend their other CD, This Can't Be Life; equally good."
