Where We Live

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
A benefit album for clean air and clean water advocates Earthjustice, Where We Live skillfully collects socially conscious songs from an interesting selection of artists. Most of the tracks have been released before with the occasional rare or unreleased cut, but genuine sentiments and spirited performances throughout bond it together. Many of the highlights are the great duets. A soulful Tina Turner with a responsive Robert Cray on the live "A Change Is Gonna Come" and the short but uplifting coupling of John Hammond and Tom Waits on "I Know I've Been Changed" are two of the album's most moving moments.

A benefit album for clean air and clean water advocates Earthjustice, Where We Live skillfully collects socially conscious songs from an interesting selection of artists. Most of the tracks have been released before with the occasional rare or unreleased cut, but genuine sentiments and spirited performances throughout bond it together. Many of the highlights are the great duets. A soulful Tina Turner with a responsive Robert Cray on the live "A Change Is Gonna Come" and the short but uplifting coupling of John Hammond and Tom Waits on "I Know I've Been Changed" are two of the album's most moving moments. Sweet Honey in the Rock's "More Than a Paycheck" is chilling with its story of bringing home both the bacon and black lung disease, and Dylan's "Watching the River Flow" reminds you how gritty and exciting he could be when playing electrified rock. The bizarre phone call from Captain Beefheart tacked on the end is sweet to hear, but at only 35 seconds it's hardly the return die-hard fans had been hoping for. The album's green message is simple and the lyrical content lacks any radical finger pointing. Despite pulling from the worlds of rock, jazz, and worldbeat it's as cohesive as they come, and one excellent cut after another makes it easy to recommend.
