All Music Guide - Vik Iyengar
After getting increased exposure with her exquisite cover album Other Voices, Other Rooms, Nanci Griffith emerged with an album of originals that demonstrated to her new fans that she was more than just an interpreter of songs. She has always been a gifted and versatile songwriter with a knack for stepping inside her characters in story songs, but she writes from a more personal perspective on this album. With the help of high-profile friends from U2, Dire Straits, Indigo Girls, and Counting Crows, she incorporates more rock & roll instrumentation electric guitar, piano, drums into her acoustically based music.

All Music Guide - Vik Iyengar
After getting increased exposure with her exquisite cover album Other Voices, Other Rooms, Nanci Griffith emerged with an album of originals that demonstrated to her new fans that she was more than just an interpreter of songs. She has always been a gifted and versatile songwriter with a knack for stepping inside her characters in story songs, but she writes from a more personal perspective on this album. With the help of high-profile friends from U2, Dire Straits, Indigo Girls, and Counting Crows, she incorporates more rock & roll instrumentation electric guitar, piano, drums into her acoustically based music. In fact, many of the highlights of this album involve collaborations. Mark Knopfler Dire Straits adds his usual tasteful guitar work in "Don't Forget About Me," and Adam Duritz of Counting Crows delivers perhaps his best vocal performance in the playful duet "Going Back to Georgia." As in previous releases, she wrestles with issues of love and loss; however, the songs resonate on a deeper level as she writes from the perspective of someone who has seen and done a lot but still longs to connect souls with one special person "Southbound Train," "On Grafton Street". Although she falters a bit when choosing to tackle politics "Time of Inconvenience", this is her most consistent album of original songs in almost a decade.

    Best of the Bunch

    While I love all of the creative talents of Nanci Griffith, this album is the standout. Every song is a unique musical experience unto itself. Her voice has never been stronger and the Blue Moon Orchestra complements it perfectly. She deals with more contemporary issues than on most of her other recordings, which helps to redefine her as a folk artist of today. There isn't nearly the nostalgia factor - so apparent in her many other works - but the clarity of her singing and overall production of this recording, put it at the top of the list. Nanci's greatest talent is as a songwriter and even with the excellent ''Other Voices...'' recordings, on which she reinterprets the writings of other folk artists, it's not quite the same as listening to an artist who is responsible for her own creations.
