Songbirds: The Essential Album, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Marisa Brown
Though the cover of Songbirds: The Essential Album, Vol. 2 claims to contain the "the purest songs from the finest female singer songwriters of our times," the reality is that much of the two-disc set revolves around the mid- to late-'90s chick-rock scene, when a rash of female musicians began to take over the airwaves, thanks much, in part, to the success of Sarah McLachlan's (who is represented here with "Building a Mystery") Lilith Fair. Joan Osborne, Aimee Mann, Ani DiFranco, and Shawn Colvin are all included (though the equally influential Jewel and Sheryl Crow are missing), as are older artists like Lucinda Williams, Kirsty MacColl, Nanci Griffith, Joan Armatrading, ...

Joan Osborne, Aimee Mann, Ani DiFranco, and Shawn Colvin are all included (though the equally influential Jewel and Sheryl Crow are missing), as are older artists like Lucinda Williams, Kirsty MacColl, Nanci Griffith, Joan Armatrading, and Judie Tzuke. The music mostly falls in the pop
