5.0 out of 5 stars You need this album!!!, 24 April 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Sunny Border Blue (Audio CD)
She has done it once again - here we have KH at her angriest and most vulnerable, which for us means another excellent piece of work. Tracks like "Your Dirty Answer" and "37 Hours" remind us that she can still be as raw and rockin' as anytime with Throwing Muses, but then we are drawn into the underlying theme of the record, and the emotion and heart-on-sleeve lyrics of songs like "Summer Salt" and "Listerine" dig deep.
A nice surprise is the cover of Cat Stevens' "Trouble", which, far from sticking out, meshes well with her own achievements. An excellent album, her best since going it alone. Buy this, then work backwards through an amazing catalogue of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional and personal, 10 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Sunny Border Blue (Audio CD)
Kristin Hersh has now made an album which she can truly say is her's. Not that i'm saying her other album weren't "her's", but this is so honest, truthful and emotional that you cannot doubt it. I was privilaged to see her live recently, and the songs from this album which she played seemed to be the ones that she was most comfortable with.
She has the ability to condense her anger, frustration, love, fear and experiences into beautiful and incredibly emotional music. There are times when this album will hit you hard with such sadness and then others when it can sooth, sometimes even be uplifting.
A truly beautiful and honest album. A must-buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 star release for the sometimes patchy and occaisionally genius Hersh, 25 Mar 2013

This review is from: Sunny Border Blue (Audio CD)
This is a great album - for fans of acoustic folk, its an essential that you should own. Kristin combines her unique, emotional, poppy folk style to superb effect. So we shimmering fingerpicked songs that resonate through her emotional, honest voice.
At times patchy, with a range of solo work and with The Throwing muses that sometimes hits the mark and sometimes misses, Sunny Border Blue is probably Kristin's only album to consistently excel alongside 2001's Hips and Makers..
un unknown classic and a real gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars A truly polished performance, 6 Oct 2001
This review is from: Sunny Border Blue (Audio CD)
If you're reading this and you're a fan then I'm sure you'll agree that this is a lot smoother than her Hips & Makers album. I think she's a strong artist and her sound, though an acquired taste, appeals to many. I've seen the Throwing Muses twice and Ms Hersh once as a solo performer and class myself as a fan. Her music is always within reach. It's definitely one to own, but I do prefer her first album, especially the track "Your Ghost".

5.0 out of 5 stars minimalist guitar and female vocal that kicks ass at times, 10 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Sunny Border Blue (Audio CD)
georgeous return of everyones favourite schizophrenic songstress, after the relative palor or strange angels and sky motel this album is most comparable with her previous solo debut Hips and Makers with added guitar tracks not unlike Throwing Muses. Check out a truely beutiful version of Cat Stevens 'trouble' for fragile hersh at her very strongest
