HASH(0x8e668d20) out of 5 stars About Time 2 Jun. 2005
By Edward L. Bell - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Cast by Ferron as "Driver's big sister," Turning into Beautiful is the creation of a master songwriter who has taken care to explain what time does: how remembrance and reflection models the present, shapes our resolve, and moves us toward perfection and grace if we would only face it and claim it as we might do at long last. The effort beseeches easy living with ourselves and our loved ones, here-and-now and beyond. And like returning each night to a cherished sweetie at home, listeners will grow more and more fond of this album with repeated listening. Over and over again you'll look forward to hearing the open-hearted arrangements and compositions of the talented tunesmiths who participated in the recording. Recorded remotely on the same Vancouver-area island location where some of her earliest published songs were penned, Ferron is joined by a creative cast of accomplished Canadian and American musicians, including two who played on the 1980 album, Testimony, twenty-five years before. Turning into Beautiful (and don't we all?) is aptly named, indeed. This recording is well-produced and beautifully mastered, with clear and clean sounds of C&W, contemporary folk, rock-n-roll, blues, and gospel.

HASH(0x8e668d74) out of 5 stars Ah, the mystery that is Ferron! 27 Sept. 2001
By C. Brennan - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I think it was Billboard magazine that once referred to Ferron as a "female Bob Dylan", for her singing style as much as for her lyrics. I found her to be somewhat comparable to folksinger Bill Morrissey, at least in delivery. These are easy parallels to make, although Ferron really defies being categorized.
"Shadows On A Dime" is a cipher -- there are multiple layers of storytelling here, tales of daring, heartbreak and redemption just beyond reach. Her writing is greatly compelling, deeply personal and often cryptic. Her vocal style is challenging - either you're open to it or you're not.
The title track is one of my all-time favorite songs, a great story accentuated by superb instrumentation. A deeply personal writer, Ferron is also an outstanding guitarist. What is missing from her recordings is her sense of humor, something that is readily apparent in her live performances.
This ablum accompanied me through college and stands as one of the true treasures of my music collection. It is thoughtful, thought-provoking and good company on rainy nights in November.

HASH(0x8e43ab7c) out of 5 stars Ferron is incredible 24 Jan. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
...But then, her fans all know this. Shadows on a Dime, one of her early works, contains several songs which still make me wonder how someone so young (at the time she recorded this) could also be so wise. Ferron's lyrics are poetry, art, plain and simple (but oh, how complex). Here, her youthful voice reveals a myriad of emotions which are just as relevant to today's listener as they were when this beautiful, soulful, sometimes poignant album first came out.
...When Ferron tours, she brings with her lots of out-of-print or hard-to-find CDs, so go catch her live if you can. However, until you do, buy this and any other Ferron CD you can find (especially "Impressionistic Ferron," a compilation of her greatest hits, so to speak, though the ones left off of that CD are also gems)-- particularly if you like deep, sometimes heartbreakingly honest folk songs.

HASH(0x8e5a48b8) out of 5 stars Soft side of the rock 3 Jun. 2005
By Rick Rhodes - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Had a chance to meet Ferron at the KIMO Theatre in Albuquerque, New Mexico...unfortunately did not get to hear her...but my best friend got me an autographed CD which I just heard for the first time moments's beautiful...wise...a piece of sanity...the soft side of the rock! Like "Life is a Brook" from Stll Riot, if "Goat Path" doesn't wring it out of you, you must be heartless.

HASH(0x8e5a4258) out of 5 stars FERRON "SHADOWS ON A DIME" IS OUTSTANDING 4 Feb. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Ferron's acclaimed 2nd Release established her as a great singer-songwriter. Includes the classics "Dreaming Back", "Snowin in Brooklyn", "I Never Was To Africa", "The Return", "Shadows On A Dime", "It Won't Take Long", etc. Categorizing rarely applies with the best music. If this release was to be, "Folk Rock" would do it justice. To a point. The songwriting, so fresh and unique, simply shines. A classic.
