Just Amazing!!!

Gillian's first records set the listener up to expect simple, intimate production of some of this nation's best original music. "Soul Journey", to my ears, was a surprise. The songs were there...still as beautiful, thought provoking, easily identified-with and direct as ever. The production, however, was a shocker. This album enjoys fuller arrangements...electric bass and (gasp) drums on most every track. The result: somehow an increased sparseness and engaging detachment. Just amazing. If you're a fan of Gillian's music you will be intrigued by the subtle and but surprising and powerful change wrought by the addition of fuller instrumentation. Those new to her music will buy the rest of her albums.

One of the most beautiful collection of songs I have ever heard. Stands along side Lucinda William's "Car Wheels On a Gravel Road" as one of the best folk/country albums of the last 10 years.

I disagree with the i-tunes reviewer above about the merit of this album relative to her others. This album knocked my socks off.
