Overview

Eclectic and spirited, LILITH FAIR, VOLUME THREE is one of the most enjoyable of the Lilith records. Covering folk, rock, blues, pop, and global sounds, the album is all of those rolled into one big mosh pit of noise, starting with Me'Shell N'degéOcello's funky "Soul Record." Contrary to its title, "Not an Addict" by K's Choice is irresistible -- and one of the best tracks among an affecting collection that includes the acoustic kick-start of Rebekah's "Little Black Girl," Luscious Jackson's languid take on their hit "Naked Eye," and the sublime soulful sounds of N'Dea Davenport. Lilith mama Sarah McLachlan ups the ante on her SURFACING number, "Black & White," and Emmylou Harris proves she deserves all that praise with her gravelly, bluesy "Deeper Well." There are a few omissions from the lineup, but all in all this is a great token of the festival -- and a collection that stands on its own.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
As the second half of the two-part sequel to the first Lilith Fair souvenir, Lilith Fair, Vol. 3 may seem like an afterthought, but it's arguably the best of the series so far. Like its sister compilation, Lilith Fair, Vol. 2, Vol. 3 features songs from 14 different artists from the 1998 tour. Through design, this collection features many of the more challenging artists from the tour, including Me'Shell NdegeOcello, Luscious Jackson, Liz Phair, Suzanne Vega and Emmylou Harris. True, they're all represented by some of their more accessible songs, but this means they fit in well with the remainder of the disc, which consists of both the familiar (Holly Cole, Sarah McLachlan, Indigo Girls, Bonnie Raitt) and the new (Sixpence None the Richer, N'Dea Davenport, K's Choice, Rebekah, Chantal Kreviazuk). There are a few lulls on the album, but not as many as on the double-disc first volume -- or the second volume, for that matter. And while the disc will primarily be of interest for fans seeking a souvenir, the music is good enough that fans of adult alternative pop won't find this a bad choice, either.
