I first came across Kris live in Philadelphia and I was hooked. This album is every bit as good as her earlier one, Appetite with some heartbreakingly beautiful songs. Damn Love Song and Words Fail me are stunning.
For those unfamiliar with Kris she has a great voice and terrific style - try it!!

Great news that the album has finally made it to these shores via the excellent AcousticRoots label, and anyone who is a fan of acoustic singer/songwriters should own a copy of this record.
Tracks like Broken White Line and Little Wings are amazing and a must for any music fan!!

The calm in a storm! 7 Nov. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Amid a monsterous storm of repetitive music coming out today, Kris Delmhorst's "Five Stories" is a welcome break from the norm. Being that I have never heard of her before (I found this CD by mistake) I was absolutely astonished by what I heard. Her songwriting skills (if it would be a skill, for it almost seems natural for her) are better than most all commercialized musicians on the scene today! None of the same old cliched music or lyrics, but genuine in feeling and style.
My favorite songs on the album currently are "Garden Rose" and "Yellow Brick Road" (the song that mesmerized me enough to buy this album), but I can't skip over any song at all being that they are that good!
Personally though, I wouldn't know another famous folk singer, but being a musician, I know talent when I see it! (or hear it for that matter!) If you want good music, buy this CD NOW!... or buy it from her website for faster service!

Stellar project 31 Oct. 2002
By Glenn Fink - Published on
Format: Audio CD
It's impossible to go wrong buying this CD if you have any interest in singer-songwriters. I think the other reviews here already sum it up nicely, but it should be mentioned that many of the musicians on this album have been seen around Boston in their own successful projects. This includes Catie Curtis and Sean Staples of the Resophonics among many others. This album is well-played and given a sensitive treatment by capable hands. Add Kris's stellar voice and songwriting on top and you've got a great album that's difficult to remove from rotation. Buy without hesitation.

I can't stop playing this beauitful CD! 17 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Kris Delmhorst stands out from within the "Girls with Guitars" genre as a unique, multi-faceted, wonderful singer and songwriter. Her lyrics are strong and dynamic paired with a natural and lovely voice. That girl plays a ton of instruments and showcases those talents well on songs like "Mean Old Wind." My favorite is "Broken White Line" with its classic-sounding folk-rock nature, well elevated by original story-telling lyrics. Appetite and the older EPs are great; but for a full-fledged, enjoyable album, FIVE STORIES is the way to go. You'll be satisfied from start to finish, and then, like me, you'll press play again and start the whole experience over for another round!

Flying below the radar on 'Little Wings' 8 Sept. 2002
By Aaron J. Adler - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Kris Delmhorst has it all - a way with words, a voice that can communicate in a whisper or in a heart-aching, full-volume exclamation, and the ability to play a variety of instruments. Her use of metaphors is often clever and skillful, but not so heavy-handed that they beat you ever the head. She crafts exquisitely beautiful songs that those in pain can relate to while balancing them with others of strength and encouragement all the while with a sense of humor behind it all. Plus, if you ever meet her in person she's just about the sweetest person in the world! If the music business weren't so hung up on style and paid more attention to substance, Kris would shining in the national spotlight. Regardless, this CD is the best place to discover her talent and if the newer songs she's playing in concert are any indication, the next will be even better. Buy one copy for yourself and another for a friend and you will have them thanking you endlessly for introducing them to an artist they might never have otherwise discovered....

Buy this CD 9 Feb. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I first heard of Kris on a radio program featuring not-yet-released CDs. Based on one track, I was willing to buy the CD. Not at all disappointed. This CD wanders a range of musical styles and demonstrates musicality and flexibility. If you listen to Nanci Griffith, Sarah McLaughlin, Dar Williams, Patti Griffin, etc, you will enjoy this album. For me, one of the most best "new" artists I have heard in a long time. Though the CD explores different musical genres, it is still on the whole cohesive and enjoyable.
