A review written for the Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
by Mike Jurkovic

I feel like the lone dissenter.

What does Rolling Stone ("…makes you want to roar down the highway with the windows open and your finger on the repeat button.") hear? What does Mojo, for which I was once a candidate to write ("…the single minded intensity of Ani DiFranco.") hear? What does Time, Uncut, BBC, Timeout, and Maverick all hear that I'm obviously not privy?

Am I just stone tone deaf? Has rock n roll finally left me jaded beyond the realm of reason?

Whatever the case, it's not that I don't find much to like on Be Many Gone. It just leaves me indifferent, a terrible state to be in when discussing art of any discipline or consequence. She's got a crack Nashville band. Buddy Spicher's fiddle and Jimmy Clark's trumpet enhance and filigree an edgy twang that give her songs (Queen of the Fake Smile, She's Yours, There Will Be Many Gone) a fine flair, but, the repeat button?

I feel like the lone dissenter.

Track List:

  • Queen of the Fake Smile
  • She's Your's
  • Prove Me Wrong
  • Each Passing Hour
  • Just Ain't So
  • Wake Up Silly Girl
  • Comfort Me
  • There Will be Many Gone
  • Space You Needed
Produced by Eileen Rose & The Legendary Rich Gilbert
