BBC Review

You've got to be in the right mood for this; and if your mood is frenetic, this is perfect. It will calm you.

There are no sudden surprises, there is nothing disturbing, irritating or upsetting. It is absolutely fine. To quote the accompanying blurb: "an artist who doesn't fit easily into a box, who is broader than one category, who is simply 'good'".

"Good". That's spot-on. There is nothing wrong with the singing–nice voice. Lyrically there are a couple of words solely for the sake of the rhyme, but not many. Fine playing, arrangements and production. Quite nice artwork, too.

A well-turned-out album, then–but after it's over it doesn't stay with you. And that surely is what we want.

Kim was a teacher, in Ohio, before she set out on a singing career. This is her sixth album, and she's made an effort in the UK, having lived for a while in London, and has attracted a decent following after a number of tours here.

She is known mainly as a writer, having had success with songs covered by the likes of Mary Chapin Carpenter, Trisha Yearwood and James Morrison, and has lent her very pleasant vocals to a few luminaries including Ryan Adams and Shawn Colvin.

Though not strictly a country writer, she spent a lot of time in Nashville, and clearly absorbed the sense of songwriting craft that pervades that town. Maybe she needs also to spend some time in Memphis and New Orleans. As an awful man in marketing once said, "we've got the sausage, now all we need is the sizzle".

I think I'll put track four, For a While, on my iPod though; it's a bit bluesy. Might as well. --Nick Barraclough

Format: Audio CD
This is the sixth album from the excellent Ms Richey and while it will probably not convert many, it does please long time fans like me.

That's not to say that this is at all a bad record, far from it, (a very accomplished performance), it's mainly that, it just does not have any stand out tracks.

If you want to start with Kim Richey go to 2002's "Rise" or the "Collection" from 2004 as they her best work by far.

Back to "Wreck Your Wheels" though, what you can say is that this is bit of change in direction for Kim as previously she was a bit pidgeon holed as a country singer, which is not accurate as she is more than that with wide spectrum of material, which I must say is adequately displayed here.

On this album she has co written all of the songs with different people, from Boo Hewerdine, Will Kimbrough, the late Tim Kreckle and Mark Olson (ex Jayhawks and co performer with Gary Louris)

Best tracks for me are "When The Circus Comes To Town" and "In The Years To Come" neither of which are country.

More good tunes from Kim. Having seen her live quite a few time I could not say no to the album. I am still one behind. Too much to listen to.On early listens the title track, "careful how you go" and for a while make an impression. There is some nice playing on both "keys" and "when the circus comes to town". It has been on the car CD player a fair bit and held its own against popular regular favorites including Kim's first two CD's. Worthwhile.

I heard Kim Richey live on Bob's Country programme a couple of weeks ago and particularly liked the song Careful How You Go, so downloaded the album pretty much based on that. This is a gem of an album, not at all "samey" from song to song and contains some great tracks. Keys is a plaintive song, Leaving 49 the kind of song that you can't keep still to, and When the circus comes to town equally outstanding. I've since also downloaded Collection which is taking time to grow on me, unlike Wheels which was an instant resonation. This is a fine album, simply recorded with some very strong songs. Now I can't wait to see her live.

Thoroughly enjoying this album, a bit of a more chilled feel to it but still with some good uptempo songs like 'Leaving 49'. I was fortunate to hear some of these live and the recordings don't disappoint. Stand-out tracks: 'Careful How you Go' is a beautiful capture of a place and time and 'keys' is effective in its simplicity. Try it!
