Jesse Sykes & her mates in The Sweet Hereafter have created a beautiful hybrid in their Pacific Northwest greenhouse studio. Fans of "Oh My Girl" - one of my all-time favorite discs - will not be disappointed. The dusky jewel that is Sykes' voice still glitters through the arrangements, although now its setting has been expanded to include much more from her band. Echoes of "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" Neil Young, have been crossed with Sunn O))), and lotsa good ol' country and beguiling harmonies to produce a magical recording that just gets better with each listen. It perfectly reflects the environment in which it was created - lush, watery, shadow-dappled, deeply affecting.

Dust, dirt, dirge and damn good! 4 Aug. 2011
By D. Hansen - Published on Amazon.com
Anyone who'd rather watch a Kirusawa film over the latest "Transformers" should fall in love with this record! Marble Son is a fantastic achievement and if symmetry and balance are laws of nature--this record and band's reputation will inevitably ascend to legendary heights. It really doesn't matter how you listen to it--sit down, dig in, and let it take you on a journey or put it on in the other room--it will get under your skin leaving you unwittingly transformed and longing for more. It's classic yet progressive, and somehow timeless--carrying you into a dream world of diverse aural ecosystems, leading you from primeval forest to stormy, windswept beaches to sunlit meadows. Each song is a uniquely inspired experience and collectively become a stunning soundtrack capturing a time of mesmerizing human achievements mirrored by equally apalling tragedy. It's sophisticated but not isolating--marrying good ol' rattle your bones rock and roll (and guitar work with the heart, soul, skill, and desperation not seen since Richards and Page), with elements of classical, folk, and blues in the tradition of Gershwin. And in keeping with Shakespeare's forte--Sykes proves entertainment doesn't need to be emotionally vapid to be downright addictive. Marble Son is a salve for anyone who longs for the days when rock and roll artists testified; pulled up to your house with tires squealing, threw you in and dragged you along for what was sure to be a harrowing, yet unforgettable experience. Marble Son is the most satisfying album I've heard in years, yet I'm left with the distinct impression there's a lot more to come--that even as I write this, Sykes & Co are frantically taking stock of their apparently bottomless musical arsenal, desperate to create new soundscapes that are rich and powerful enough to illuminate the depths of Sykes' sage visions.

Wow... Totally Unexpected 5 Aug. 2011
By Jetmaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Describing Jesse Sykes as Alt-Country of Folk is a crime. Makes you think of Steve Earle in a dress. This is like Radiohead meets GY!BE meets Led Zeppelin meets... I don't know... a hugely talented female singer? And not just a singer. An artist. These are some beautiful lyrics with some depth and meaning. And the instrumentals are fantastic. I heard one track from this on a local radio station and bought it on a whim. I certainly didn't expect such a completely enjoyable album. On my first listen I was bummed when the last track ended... I wanted it to go on. This is really an excellent album.

What an amazing jem 29 Oct. 2012
By GB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the best cds in years. The songwriting is great the production is amazing and the guitar work is just unbelievable. There isn't another band out there that sounds like this album. Originally they were a much more folky/alt country sounding band and those albums are also very good but this one stands apart because it is so creative and unique. The guitar work can best be described as psychedelic but I am not even sure if that is quite an accurate accounting. At times it reminds me of John Cippolina of Quicksilver fame but that is about the closest thing I can think of. I don't know who to compare it to, I think all I can do is just say try it and see if you agree with me that it is brilliant. We were lucky enough to see her perform at our local record store here today and they were amazing so if you get a chance to see them live I can't recommend them high enough. Just great! Get this cd and enjoy.

I am still learning to listen to her music but Jesse Sykes is worth trying out.
Enter the Time Machine 25 Dec. 2013
By David S. Jenkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
What I find most remarkable about this exquisite album is it's ability to take me back to Berkeley CA in the late 60's.

I've never heard an album in the last thirty years which captured the flavor of that scene as perfectly as this one does. You can smell the patchouli oil and incense. You can see the blacklight posters on the wall. You can almost see the colors fan across the room as you wave your hand in front of your face. Some of you will grasp that notion, some won't and I appreciate that.

A gorgeous accomplishment, this CD.
