5.0 out of 5 stars Return to the Acoustic 2 Jun 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've been privileged to hear the new album before its release, and it's interesting that Juliet has returned to her acoustic origins, reminiscent of Pizza and Wine, her first album all those years ago. 'People Have Names' will definitely appeal to those fans who are kept on the edge of their seats during her live performances. Without going back to the raw, close to the bone exposure of 'Pizza', in 'People Have Names' Juliet allows the listener to once again move through her thinking, and feel what she feels.

The album is a collection of her reflections on the significance of individuals in society - the right to think for oneself, the challenge of carving a niche for oneself, the beauty and wisdom of ageing, the frightening joy of childhood, the imperative to live an appreciation of the people around you. The title track, 'People Have Names' is a beautiful conclusion to an album which weaves a charming, warming and uplifting path through relationships which have inspired these songs.

Among my favourite tracks on this album is 'Elder of the Tribe' which tells of the old man who revelled in the company of young people, reminding them to 'Take care of your lovely young life'. Juliet has described at gigs, how this song came partly from the need she perceives in modern Ireland for stronger male role models and a growing sense of despair among young men.

One song that regular gig-goers will recognise is 'Tuesday Night Ladies' which considers, with respect and affection, the complexity of Juliet's generation in Ireland. They are still connected to the farm, but they have opportunities far beyond the limits of rural Ireland. 'Believe it or not, they all wear Versace, Though their fingers are calloused and their faces are brown.

5.0 out of 5 stars Criminally Under Rated! 25 Mar 2009
By DaveF
Format:Audio CD
She wins awards & is platinum selling but no one over here seems to heard of her. What can I tell you? She has one of the best voices (and accents) ever - I would listen to her read the phone book. The fact she writes clever, insightful, moving songs as well means you I don't have to.

This album is maybe more mature (whatever that means), musically more gentle than "Pizza"(LET'S HEAR IT FOR PIZZA) but the lyrics are just as sharp if not sharper. A barb to pierce your soul wrapped in tupelo honey so sweet you listen anyway.

Is you're not sure start with Pick a Story if you have kids or Girl with a Smile if you don't.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Golden" is not an over-statement 25 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have several of Juliet's albums and have heard her live a few times. This album is genuinely excellent, and I would say the best yet, with lovely/challenging/clever lyrics, some a little tongue-in-cheek, others sincere and thought-provoking. There's also great mucic, which is melodic and interesting but never over-done, and some brilliant backing vocals. And JT's clear and true voice, carrying her County Tyrone (Ulster/Northern Ireland) accent that she doesn't try to disguise.
"Elder of the Tribe" or "People have names" are worth the album price alone.
I'd recommend to anyone who likes original singer-songwriter collections, especially from a very talented woman who sings and writes about things that matter - life, love, justice...
