Drama Queen

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Kelly McCartney
If you just judged an album by its cover, you would be mostly wrong about Judith Edelman's Drama Queen. From the looks of it, you might want to banish her to the land of singer/songwriters like Suzanne Vega, Lucy Kaplansky, or Dar Williams -- you know, folksingers with a splash of urban sensibility. Problem is, you'd be wrong. Check the fine print to see that this is a Compass Records release and then you'll get on track.

The earth is certainly not shattered by the artistic contribution Drama Queen makes to society, but it's far from a bad record. It's more of a background, easy to digest, don't rock the boat sort of listening experience than anything else. And these days, that's actually saying something.
