5.0 out of 5 stars Superior Achievement From A Woefully Underrated Talent April 1 2001
By Supernova - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a first rate effort, a first class performance from a talented, down-to-earth lady, unjustly shunted into the background of Canadian music by no-talents like Shania Twain and people like her who have taken over music with plastic personas and third rate material. Not only does Patricia have this against her, but she is just one of the increasingly many country/folk recording artists in Canada who are being booted off their major label for not registering significant sales. If you don't sell at least past Gold in Canada, you're toast. Despite a rigorous touring schedule and major support from CMT in Canada, Patricia has yet to break through in the United States. This is not a country recording in the truest sense of the word. Patricia and producers Mike Wanchic and Justin Niebank created a sound that borrows from roots/rockabilly/country/rock. Linda Ronstadt comes immediately to mind, as she too tightroped her way across those same sounds as well. The most distinctive sound is Patricia's voice - confident, deep and sultry. The musicianship is solid. The songwriting is top notch - Kostas, Matraca Berg, Jennifer Kimball, Lyle Lovett, Tony Arata and Patricia Conroy herself. The centrepiece of this recording is also the leadoff track - the confident, bluesy, first-rate hit rocker "What Else Can I Do", superbly sung, simply written. This recording is possibly the best thing Conroy has delivered to date. The first-rate material keeps coming with Lovett's "You Can't Resist It"; the dark, thundering "Somebody's Leavin'"; Conroy's great "I Don't Wanna Be The One" and the party song "Keep Me Rockin'" - all major hits in Canada. This is a career album from a very talented performer. Conroy should feel very proud of this achievement. Highly respected, she has continued to release fine material, now as an independent artist, free of the pressure of a major's demands. When the day is done, real talent like this will always overshadow banal tripe.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb album by a wonderful writer/artist Aug. 14 2003
By Aaron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One of the best talents to come from not only Canada, but from anywhere in music.
A strong start is 'What Else Can I Do', a perfect example of a great contemporary country single. Mid tempo and rockin' as well, it carries a strength not found in a lot of innovative country tunes.
Her self penned 'I Don't Wanna Be The One' is a well penned of advice to a friend. But the lyrics aren't just neat, they're well placed and not trying too hard to be soooo clever and cool. It already is. Catchy !
Her other baby here, 'Crazy Fool' makes it a sweet time to slow things down and let love take over. Tenderly. Back to the loud, comes her fun-fun-fun 'Keep Me Rockin'. The lyrics makes you spin, and laugh out loud for more ! This wicked blues soaked rock song...ah, can't say enough....
Watch for her cover of Lyle Lovett's 'You Can't Resist It', and you CAN'T ! Perhaps the most in depth and involving is 'Somebody's Leaving'.
A buzzsaw electric guitar and her vocals have a depth that gets into this moody story here. Strong track.
If Patricia weren't doing a mix of country and roots rock, she might be visually and vocally thought of as a rock artist. Although I love her doing both arenas, I know she'd do awesome with either straight ahead. Thankfully, country and rock suit her both so well. Patricia, you have my vote as this being one of my favourite albums ever, and my fav gal of music. Mean it. And I mean all those stars ( 5 ! )
Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's one of my prefered country-rock cd May 5 2006
By T. Cordonnier - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have probably 1000 country music cds at home and this is one my best.I am extremely sorry that I cannot find other cds by this excelent artist. the style is pure and original country rock music, the voice is beautiful, the band is perfect the songs are fine and I can listen to the full album enjoying it from the start to the end.

CMT promoted her and they had a good taste when they did so.

I miss her now as this first cd was a real delight.

I Hope I can find her name on a new cd one day and I trust that, with such talent, it will happen.

I would vote 6 stars for her if this would exist !

all the best from a true fan in France !

5.0 out of 5 stars crisp and clear as a new canadian snowfall Oct. 15 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Great CD- Clean and crisp as the strong Canadian North wind. Five Canadian singles released from The CD.My favourites include "I don't wanna be the one" "Diamonds" and "Keep me rockin". Also "Somebodys leavin",portrays a sultry voice and an outstanding guitar presence. Conroy can equally perform the ballads,as in "Crazy fool",as well as the get me on the floor rockers like "Keep me rockin". Simply a beautiful voice from a true Canadian.
