Product Description

Product Description

Description Kim Richey has never been afraid to go where the inspiration is. Early on, the Zanesville, Ohio native thrived on the progressive side of mainstream country, her albums (1995's Kim Richey, 1997's Bittersweet and 1999's Glimmer, all on Mercury) showcasing twang-pop sensibilities, a rich, rounded vocal tone and effortlessly sophisticated songwriting that other discerning performers - Radney Foster, Trisha Yearwood and Pam Tillis to name a few - coveted for their own recordings. In the years since, Richey has made a subtly psychedelic album, Rise (Lost Highway), in Los Angeles with producer Bill Bottrell, flown to London to enlist the help of Giles Martin, emerging with the crisply orchestrated Chinese Boxes (Vanguard). Richey turned to her Nashville-based bandleader and frequent co-writer Neilson Hubbard to conjure the earthy feel of Wreck Your Wheels (Lojinx) and to complete her latest masterpiece of smart, sensual understatement Thorn In My Heart. The array of top-tier guests on the album include Jason Isbell, Wilco's Pat Sansone, My Morning Jacket's Carl Broemel, Will Kimbrough and Trisha Yearwood, who was, for the first time, returning the harmony-singing favor. And the dozen songs themselves show that Richey's still dreaming up fetching melodies that arc and bend in unexpected ways, and still discovering fresh angles from which to articulate matters of the heart.

By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 13 May 2013
Format: Audio CD
This is a good Country album by a fine singer and a good band. For me, though, it lacks anything really special to mark it out from the crowd of good Country/Americana stuff around at the moment.

Kim Richey has a lovely voice and puts a song over very well. Her band gives her more than solid support and the effect is very pleasing. However, none of these twelve songs really grabs me as something to keep and play for years to come. The title track is enjoyable enough, both Break Away Speed and Angel's Share have a singable, haunting quality to them and No Means Yes is a good Country waltz tune (although I'm not at all sure that that "no means yes" is a good thing for a woman to be singing), but none of it really stands out. I think that other recent albums, like Kacey Musgraves's Same Trailer Different Park Same Trailer Different Park and Amy Speace's How To Sleep In Stormy Boat How to Sleep in a Stormy Boat for example, show in their different ways what really excellent songwriting is, and this Kim Richey album isn't in the same class for me.

I don't want to be too critical; this is a perfectly decent album of nice songs, well played and very well sung. You may like it much better than I did, of course, and I'd suggest listening to the mp3 samples to see whether it is more to your taste than mine, but I can only give this album a qualified recommendation.

I haven't had much time to really get into this one yet, but first listenings do not disappoint, I'm still looking for the follow-up to "Bittersweet", and maybe this is it. Strong melodies, which we haven't had for a while, coupled with really good lyrics. I just need more time to appreciate!

While I am not sensitive enough (or rich enough) to like aged wines, I am sure there are music artists that I like better when they become "mature". Emmylou Harris and Kim Richey are the examples that come first in my mind. Maybe because I am not really keen to classic country music. Still, when a great voice gains through the years that warm depth of both sound and subject, it really makes me happy. For that, thank you, Kim. Really great music.
