Overview

Patty Griffin's Living with Ghosts was an impressive debut, but its spare acoustic arrangements occasionally made it sound more like a sketchbook than a completed album. Shortly after its release, her label commissioned a new version of "Let Him Fly," which matched her vocals to a full live band. Satisfied with the results, Griffin decided to flesh out the instrumentation on her second album Flaming Red and the results are revelatory. Griffin didn't stick with traditional rock arrangments -- she also recorded country-rock, folk, catchy pop and even trip-hop songs, as well. Instead of camouflaging her songwriting, it actually reveals the richness of her music and lyrics. Her sonic revision may be more accessible, but it's no compromise -- Flaming Red is evidence that Griffin is one the more talented and ambitious singer/songwriters to emerge in the late '90s.

Rarely is there a release that captivates from beginning to end. Patty Griffin's Flaming Red is that release. From the raw pain of ''Tony'' to the fiery steel of ''Change,'' this CD has it all. I have lost several copies already to friends who borrowed them and decided they had to keep them!

I really enjoyed Flaming Red by Patty Griffin. A friend loaned it to me a few months ago and I found myself singing those songs and missing the CD so I had to buy it. Of course I could only find it at Barnes and Noble. The department stores just don't know good music.

The cut 'Mary' is one of the most beautiful songs I've heard in a long time-- there are a lot of fine melodies out there, but most songwriters can't write lyrics. Not so here--the lyrics, in this song at least, are lovely and strange, and establish beyond question that she's the real thing.
