All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Fiercely independent contemporary folk label Red House presents These Times We're Living In, a 16-track collection of roots music, bluegrass and singer/songwriter observations on living amidst the ebb and flow of our tumultuous 21st century, with an emphasis on the changes brought about by the attacks on September 11, 2001. For the most part it's a somber affair, with John Gorka's sparse "Riverside," Lucy Kaplansky's poignant "Land of the Living" and the Wailin' Jennys powerful "Arlington" rising to the top of the heap, but it's balanced by light-hearted offerings from Suzzy & Maggie Roche "Who Cares" and Guy Davis, whose jamboree style "We All Need More ...

Add to that mix two stellar instrumentals from Martin Simpson "Horn Island" and Peter Ostroushko "Hymn: Page 9/11" and you've got yourself a solid little package of introspective acoustic nuggets for an overcast Sunday afternoon.

    poignant and satisfying!

    Great songs to remind us of the tragedy of Sept.11 in a touching, beautiful way. (only exception being "Who Cares", that seems very out of place and annoying to me.) Outstanding are Wailin' Jennys, Jimmy LaFave, Dave Moore, Lucy Kaplansky and the always gritty Greg Brown. I love this CD!
