Customer Reviews

Highly under-rated

What a hard assessment is the itunes review here. For me, Deep Natural is Michelle Shocked's masterpiece, and a woefully overlooked one at that. Download "That's So Amazing" and ask yourself if you've ever heard a better, more transcendent song. When she folds her version of Amazing Grace into the song, it's frankly breathtaking. (Whenever I play it for people, I'm always asked, "Wow! Who is this?" They are, of course, surprised.) Then try songs like "What Can I Say," "Can't Take My Joy," "Psalm"... This is a woman on fire. Part of that fire is the fuel of faith, yes, and a clearly Christian one at that. But these songs are such a refreshing, powerful iterations of mythologies that we've come to take for granted... it's as if I'm hearing these motifs for the first time. I thought that this was one of the best albums of 2002, and I'm amazed to see that it remains an under-appreciated and largely unheard piece of work. Give it a try.

Not quite all there

This is a fantastic album but one of the best tracks is missing, a cover of the Jimi Hendrix song "House Burning". Look elsewhere and buy the CD in it's entirety. It's worth it!
