4.0 out of 5 stars Black Magic !!, 18 Nov 2003
By 
robert hodgetts (brighton, sussex United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: No Frontiers (Audio CD)
Tori Amos meets Dolly Parton - haunting and lyrical, these songs range from standards (Say a little Prayer) to the most personal - poetry set to music (Past the point of Rescue). Black manages to pour her spirit into every track, and the result is powerful and moving. Its a close contest, but my personal favourite is 'Columbus'. Highly recommended for anyone who likes lyrics that really mean something.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glorious - Black's finest, 23 July 2008
This review is from: No Frontiers (Audio CD)
Mary Black's 1989 "No Frontiers" is nothing short of a masterpiece. This (and the follow up 1991's "Babes in the Wood") was when Black was at her creative and vocal peak. "No Frontiers" (the song) has become something of an Irish classic, a party piece for so many (ever the Corrs covered it on "Unplugged") and "Past the Point of Rescue" was a massive country hit in 1991 for Hal Ketchum. Both songs are superb and Black's versions are the greatest. "Carolina Rua" and "Vanities" (featured on the huge selling "A Woman's Heart") are well known but it is the darker "Columbus" and the mesmerizing "Fat Valley of Pain" that showcase both the heartbreak and the depth of the album.

A fine introduction to Black's music - the right mixture of folk and contemporary and one of the finest albums to come out of Ireland in the 1980s
