    what a soulful voice in a bigsky-music

    What´re you doing down there in US ? What have you done to your women ? So many of the best records these days is made by women. This record is so big in motion and so soulful and so on the road. I need these song to remember the emptyness on the plains and the sky, too big, above it.

    Hey Ms. Tambourine Woman

    Simply amazing. What a voice. The only thing I can say is that she sounds even better live, so check her out sometime. "Good Hearted Man" is destined to be a classic. WOW!

    NO FLUKE - REAL THING

    Ms.Tift Merritt delivers another album of high order with passionate, luminous, sympathethic and hypnotic songs. “Tambourine” is as good as her breathtakingly attractive debut record (Bramble Rose) but in a different way. This time she prefers singing a rocking Memphis soul combined with alternative country-folk (Thanks to Mr.Drakoulias for being at the helm). Any careful listener will discover that in addition to Ms.Emmylou Harris and Ms.Lucinda Williams, Ms.Dusty Springfield is also among the heroines of Ms.Merritt. If “Bramble Rose” has “Trouble Over Me”, “Virginia, No One Can Warn You”, “Diamond Shoes” and “When I Cross Over” with the prominent pedal steel guitar; “Tambourine” contains “Stray Paper”, “Wait It Out”, “Write My Ticket” and “Laid a Highway” with the vivid Hammond organ plus horns. Yes, instead of the Nashville sound, this time Ms.Merritt invites us to be mixed with the sound of Memphis. Let’s don’t forget to be all ears.

    Snooze Fest

    I'm sorry, but I listened to this CD and thought it was boring. There's a couple of good songs, but most of the others sound alike. Don't waste your money!

    Be prepared to be hooked if you listen to this rising star

    If you're looking for formula country or formula anything, Tift Merritt isn't the artist for you. On the other hand, if you're looking for an original artist who writes songs you can't get out of your head, and delivers them with a voice and phrasing that guarantees they'll hit home, Tift and her Tambourine are your salvation. And if you ever get to see Tift perform live, you'll think you've gone to heaven. I love EVERY cut on the CD so I expect that, like her earlier Bramble Rose, Tambourine will also stay in my player all the time. Now I see why CD's are better than records -- no grooves to wear out!
