Product Description

Amazon.ca

Nashville-born and New York City-based singer Laura Cantrell shines as one of the sweetest hearts at the rodeo on this excellent follow-up to her 2000 debut Not the Tremblin' Kind. Her warm, precise country-folk style has brought her comparisons to Kitty Wells, Neko Case, Nanci Griffith, and Emmylou Harris, but she herself seems bound to be one of those singers that folks get compared to. Super-influential BBC DJ John Peel even called Tremblin' Kind "my favorite record of the last 10 years and possibly my life." The photogenic Cantrell, who herself has hosted an award-winning old-school-meets-new radio program on New Jersey's WFMU for many years, demonstrates fabulous taste in songs here, covering a range from Amy Rigby and Dave Schramm to Jim and Jesse and Kitty Wells. The playing by Cantrell's Brooklyn-based band is superb, the arrangements subtly conforming to each track: a Byrds-y twang to "Vaguest Idea," a beautiful lap steel-led old school country vibe on "Broken Again," and a nuanced "newgrass" approach for the heart-melting title track. And the four songs she herself wrote are aces, too. Huzzah! --Mike McGonigal

4.0 out of 5 stars No need to be a country fan -- Buy it!! July 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
I feel hesitant to add my two cents; I am a classical fan, not country. Good singing, though, is good singing, whether it be opera, country, or anything else. This disc was given to me and I simply had to hear what such a stunningly beautiful woman as her sounded like. I was not disappointed. Her vocal style is completely free from annoying mannerisms and cheap over-emoting. Her delivery is at all times tasteful, intelligent, understated, and honest. Like all great singing artists, she lets each song speak for itself. She mixes styles quite successfully, as noted by some of the other reviewers here. The songs don't all sound alike, and there is not a loser in the bunch. Her voice is light and pure, like Emmy Lou Harris, but not as reedy as Harris. And she is always utterly feminine. This disc will appeal to anyone who appreciates honest emotions, tastefully delivered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clearly talented. July 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
A clear, fluid, and natural voice, somewhat like that of Emylou Harris, accompanied by accoustic and electric guitars, and drums, and sometimes a mandolin. The style is rather country music, with some tunes reminding me of the Beatles, the Bangles, the early Lucinda Williams, Norman Blake, Alison Krauss, or Susanna Van Tassel. I only heard one of her songs on the radio, and was happy with the rest of her album when I got it. My two favorite songs of the CD are Early Years and Yonder Comes a Freight Train.

5.0 out of 5 stars Country music as it should be March 3 2004
By MZ
Format:Audio CD
A fine piece of work by Ms. Cantrell. Her band does not distract attention from her glorious voice, nor does it need to; her voice is so solidly infectious that it can stand on its own. I found myself soothed and inspired by Laura's style and sound. Track twelve, the old Frankie Bailes waltz, is simply beautiful.
It is a telling commentary on modern country music that some of the finest new voices are coming out of "nontraditional" locales. Mind you, these voices do not receive any significant airplay, but they are there for those looking and listening hard enough to find them.
Toss aside your commercial, cookie-cutter discs. Pick up some Laura Cantrell and be reintroduced to great country music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem! Oct. 16 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Laura Cantrell is country, witty, urbane, down-home, humble, confident, and a big musical talent. This album is wonderful and I haven't heard anything like it. She's also wonderful live!

5.0 out of 5 stars Get both Albums Aug. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
BBC DJ John Peel called her first album, Not Tremblin' Kind "my favorite record of the last 10 years and possibly my life." Glad he is still around, because IMHO this second one is every bit as good. Intelligent, understated, nuanced singing. Though a good composer, she is unsurpassed as an interpreter.Tremulous voice reaches out and inhabits the heart and the mind. Bends the note perfectly to fit the emotion and the word. Yes, like Kitty Wells, but with a little plain-folk Mother Maybelle Carter thrown in. You need this and her first CD -- they are of a whole. This one is slightly better recorded, and is in fact HDCD encoded. If you have an HDCD player (unlikely) the effect is quite startling -- almost like she is there. (But like all HDCD encoded dics, this plays perfectly on all cd and DVD players)

5.0 out of 5 stars American Music: plain ,simple, and unpretentious July 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
I became aware of Laura's music in Oct of 2002, when I saw her opening for Elivs Costello on two different evenings. What first struck me was her voice....pure and true. Put that in front of a great group of instrumentalist (Jon Graboff holds the band together like glue, adding tasty pedal stell and mandolin parts, in addition to breaking out the Rick 12 string on some of the Jangly tunes) and you have the ingredients for an amazing experience. Soon after seeing her in concert, I purchased both of her CD's. Both CD's seem to be in the same vein (both have a few rockers, a few country songs, and some more folksy things), and are very well balanced. At first I thought the albums, (though great), had a very dry sound to them (dry in the sense that there was no reverb or other effect on the voice), but I have since come to like the production as well as I like the songs and singing, and really appreciate the no nonsense way of presenting this batch of tunes. In short, Laura Cantrell (and band) have become one of my favorite bands, and I listen to her two albums (and her 1996 EP release, Hello) on a regular basis. I most recently saw her perform in late June at a small club in Nashville and had the pleasure of talking with her for a bit. In addition to being a great singer/songwriter, she is also a very nice person. Talent, beauty, and a great personality: There must be a flaw somewhere, but I haven't found it yet!! All of her albums have my highest recomendation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Emperor's New Clothes June 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Is this a case of emperor's new clothes? Mrs. Cantrell has a gracious southern hospitality about her. It's as though she is saying "Step into my parlor and enjoy this music with me". There is nothing wrong with that, but the impression left is that she is more a musical hostess than an artist. With most artists, the listener gets a sense of what is motivating them. This CD has an academic feel, passion-free. I found it hard to listen all the way through.

Throw away your Shania Twain and Darryl Worley cookiecutter discs. Pick up some Laura Cantrell and be reintroduced to great country music.
