If the two previous reviewers are fans, I would hate to be critiqued by one of Cassandra Wilson's enemies,
This review is from: Thunderbird (Audio CD)
I think the other reviewers have been excessively harsh and, in my view, both unjust and inaccurate in their review of Thunderbird. In fact while echoing their views on past triumphs, I think that Thunderbird is an many ways more accessible to new audiences of Cassandra's work. I would also say the tracks on this release do not exhibit any of the traits Cassandra has had in some of her earlier work to be on ocassion rather self-indulgent in the treatment of certain pieces. So Cassandra, just like Mr Dylan had to do when he went electric, do what you think is right and you will carry many of your less vocal fans like me along with you.

With respect, only a fan could have written what I wrote. Ms Wilson is an artist, not a service organisation, so she does what she pleases, but should she ever wonder why some of her oldest fans are deserting at least she has access to some feedback. It's sometimes your best friends...
